Day 1 = Legs and Abdominals
So I’ve done a new routine is to try get my body into pushing it’s self again. It’s not a extremely hard programme and it is focusing around toning my abdominals and my oblique’s. Slimming down my legs and arms, but most of all to be happy again.
I started off with legs:
- Body weight Squats
- KB Swing Squats
- High Knees
- Jumping Jack
four rounds, 10 reps of each (15 seconds for high knees) with 20 seconds inbetween.
- 3/4 Sit ups [15 reps, 4 sets]
- Bridge with Kettlebell. [10 reps, 2 sets – hold for 10 seconds, 2 sets – quick]
- Modified Leg Raises [15 reps, 4 sets]
- Side Bends with Kettlebell [10 reps, 4 sets – each side]
It wasn’t a very long session, it was just a 30 minutes. It is one session which is going start pushing me, my motivation comes from life. The happiness that comes from working out makes me know that picking sport as a career wasn’t a wrong choice.
The fitness world is a hard world to part of, it’s like a different world. You have the ability to change your life just by going to the gym or walking somewhere. Fitness is a way of life for most people and I would highly recommend it.
I’ve haven’t posted lately mainly, i’ve been poorly and trying get my body back to be able to train currently I’m just doing a lot of walking to keep up my fitness and from next week if i’m better I will be back training. My Journey is hard, I want to be back to the skinner version of myself however it’s hard when everyone says you look so skinny but unhealthy however now I’ve put weight on, i look good but why aren’t you as toned or why aren’t you as skinny. i’ve came to realise that you can never please everyone and if you try to you’ll never be truly happy.
Happiness comes when you put yourself first, I always care about what people think but sometimes you have forget about them and please yourself. My fitness routine is mainly going to be focused on toning my abdominals and then bringing up my speed for football just focusing on this will help my mind-set.
My depression ever since getting back into fitness and leaving my ex-partner has pretty much disappeared. My stress relief or ‘own time’ as people call it would be in the gym, give me some headphones and a gym i’ll be happy. I’m going be logging my fitness journey every time i go or as much as possible, I’m not a person for dieting or changing how i eat this is mainly due to my IBS also i tend not to eat a lot of food anyways. But i will log my food for the day’s that I train. I will be writing articles on different exercises and why i would either recommend them or why i wouldn’t personally tend to use them.
The best way of getting out of depression is talking about it and letting yourself be happy, don’t worry because someone doesn’t want you to be happy, that’s them they’re most likely just jealous.
