Week 02 Day 08

Well, I made it!

Made it past the first week, which is the first step.
I had a total of 5 workout days and 2 active rest days, which will be the same this week.

Overall I’m feeling pretty great! I’m happy with the commitment that I have made and I am still willing to see it through and excited to see the results.
Some things I need to think about and can take away from week one are:

  • Consider doing morning cardio sessions on the active rest days
  • Think about alternative exercise options other than running, like yoga or cycling for example
  • Go to bed early! It is essential to get at least 7 – 8 hours sleep for a full recovery
  • As part of this workout regime, it is acceptable to have two cheat meals/week – these need to be scheduled, and it’s not an excuse to pig out!
  • Also think about doing a food shop online to save time
  • Cut out alcohol.

So there are some things to take away already and quite a lot to think about. Of course, the website BodyBuilding.com has been a great resource so far and I’m continuing to learn more every day.

The Workout (Legs & Abs)

  • Machine leg press
  • Machine leg extension
  • Machine leg curls
  • Barbell dead lift
  • Single leg dumbbell calf raise
  • Lying bench curl
  • Crunches
  • Hanging leg raises

Quite a tough workout today so I spent a bit of extra time stretching at the end. Adding abs to every workout day is still under consideration.
