I need my head read for doing this – seriously! You need to be very kind, OK? This is the first time I have seen myself exercising on video – it is hard to watch. Hopefully it gets better as I get fitter and hotter ;).
It is also my first attempt at creating a video, so yes it’s a little daggy, but hey – at least I’m giving it a go right?!?!
Here are some of the more basic exercises Adam has been making me do. They could be done by anyone, anywhere. I’m using my 8kg pink kettlebell, but you could use a phone book, dumbbell, tin cans or even nothing at all. You will still get a good workout.
Start out with a warm up. Either a short run around the park, running on the spot for a minute or even just star jumps. Before you get into the exercises do a few quick stretches – knee ups and spinning your arms around like a crazy windmill should do it ;)
This routine is a set of 4 weight bearing exercises, with 8 reps. You repeat the set 3 times with 20 seconds of cardio at the end of each rep followed by a rest. Good luck!
My Crash Hot Diary – 19th December 2011
If you remember, my main aim this week was to drink more water. Well, I drank more water than I usually do, but still not enough. I still haven’t bought myself a fancy motivating water bottle to admire and tote around. I’m sure this is the key to success ;).
I’ve managed to eliminate all the chocolate biscuits from the house, but probably not in a good way. Oops. I’m not sure if it is the chocolate biscuits or the increased muscle from training, but I’ve actually put on weight this week – aargh!
68.1kg – that’s an extra 600g. Oh well, at least I have a little more energy – most of the time. I pretty much crash after 10pm and struggle to keep going. But tonight (Sunday night) I’m almost finished with my video and writing this post, all ready to publish in the morning. Hooray!
Focus for this week
Definitely need to crack this drinking more water habit. I also have to take it a bit easy this week too as I’m off to have surgery on Wednesday. I think I will focus on not eating treats or drinking wine, and save it up for Christmas and Boxing Day!
What are your goals this week? Do you think you could manage my Crash Hot exercise routine?
