Monday was leg day and I decided to see how my 45kg and 50kg are looking so I can check in on my depth. I have videos, of course.

Starting the first day of the week off strong. Did the strength leg session of my new program today. In my last 4 week block I was focusing on 40kg dept, now it’s time to get that 45kg and 50kg strong and deep! Video 1: 8 reps at 45kg Video 2: 4 reps at 50kg Video 3: 4 reps at 50kg with bench Hopefully in 4 weeks I’ll be posting a video with more depth at these weights. I don’t know where the 8 reps at 45kg came from but I felt strong so I’ll take it. Good start to day 1 of the #applewatchcomp! . . #puregym #squat #video #squatvideo #boxsquat #moneymotivation #letsimprove #progress #crossfittransformation #legday #girlswholift #girlswhosquat #ukfitness #ukfitfam #fitfam #sweatpink #thisgirlcan #dailyfitnessmotivation #instafitness #movementculture #trainlikeagirl #puregymleeds #puregymthorpepark

Tuesday I did chest with my PT. I kind of got a PB! I did 5 reps at 40kg, but the last one was assisted.

On Wednesday I did my calisthenics workout for the 3rd time. I’m still pretty bad at it but determined to stick with it! I really want to be able to do a chin up at some point. On Sunday I did some chin-up practice before I got a rack for training legs and managed to do a few negatives with pretty decent control, it’s just that top half I struggle with.

Friday I did core, which was actually a pretty good session and I had time to finish with some chest work on the smith machine. I find I use my triceps too much when I bench rather than my chest so I’m trying to isolate my chest muscles a bit.

On Saturday I met Amy at the gym and we did a back and shoulder session. I got to 8 reps at 58kg pretty comfortably so decided to add a bit more on, I added 10kg by mistake instead of 5! 68kg, woo!

After doing 8 reps at 58kg pretty comfortably I decided to give 63kg a try. Dickhead over here loaded it was 5kg plates instead of 2.5kg and only realised when I watched this back. Wondered why I. it felt hard! I think this is a deadlift PB?!? It’s def a hex deadlift PB – so hurrah. First vid: 8 x 58kg Second vid: 4 x 68kg Lol. Loooonnng back and shoulder workout today, also managed 4 sets of 6x25kg power clean thrusters! I usually drop down to 22.5kg after two sets. Special shout out to @styranvsfood for videoing me and also kicking ass in her second powerlifting session. Hard to believe we used to be afraid to talk in person despite DMing for months 😭😂 . . . #strongirls #rackpulls #puregym #musclesplease #myprotein #myproteinwomen #deadlifts #hexbar #hexbardeadlift #fitfam #ukfitfam #workoutvideo #deadliftpb #sweatpink #thisgirlcan #applewatchcomp #ukfit #ukfitness #ukfitfam #backday #shoulderday #deadliftday #deadliftvideo

On Sunday I did leg endurance. As I’m doing a 14-day calisthenic challenge and that day was squats, I decided to stick 40kg on and do that before I worked out.

Day 2 of #14daycalisthenics March Max was squats. As many reps as possible for 60 seconds. Decided to treat myself and try it with 40kg, got 14 reps in 60 seconds, but went up to 20 reps as I didn’t know how to time myself and record myself at the same time (cuts off after 1 min as a figured nobody really wants to watch me squat for 20 reps) Depth isn’t great but decided to try it at a higher weight and see how I got on. This tied in well with my leg endurance day today which I did after! Almost 2 hours at the gym today! Was doing some pull up work while I was waiting for a rack (getting better at controlling negatives, it’s the top half I struggle with, same on banded pull ups, I get half way then struggle with the top half!) and then did day 3 of the challenge after. I did do day 1, shoulder taps, but didn’t upload it. I might put it in my stories later.

No idea how I managed to get 20 reps at 40kg, but I did! I tried 50 again and didn’t get very low. I also did some box sits with 50 on and after 50 reps it felt hard. I probably knackered my legs with the 20 reps of 40kg. The rest of the session was tough but I pushed through!

I came in under calories every day last week and lost a couple of pounds.

I’m feeling pretty good about my workouts at the moment. Good start to week 1 of the 12-week competition my PT is doing!
