What a good week I’ve had. I’ve not had my program this week so I’ve been doing my own thing.

I trained chest on Friday – I’m getting much better at 12 reps of 30kg and 6 reps of 35kg. It was always hit and miss whether I could get them before, but now I’m getting them consistently. Just need to work on getting more than 2 reps of 40kg now!

Chest day this morning. Video 1 = second set of 12 reps at 30kg. Video 2 = second set of 6 reps at 35kg. Used to always fail at the second set but I’ve been doing alright the past few weeks. Still need to work on my hand/elbow placement so I’m pressing my through my chest rather than relying on my arms too much. After this I did 2 sets at 40kg and then stripped back to 25kg to work on a wider grip for 3 sets of 10 reps. . . . #girlswhobenchpress #sweatysession #ukfitnessblogger #gymflow💪 #fitnesslifestyle #strongwomenrule #femalefitnessmotivation #girlswhobench #instafitnessgirls #liftforlife #puregym #fitnessaddicts #ukfitness #weightlossupport #liveyourbestliftnow #mondayworkout #trainlikeanangel #trainlikeagirl #fitnessaddicts #trainlikeabeast #sweatpink #instafitfam #bodyconfidence #fitfamuk #bodyweightraining #liveyourbestlife #chestday #chestdayeveryday #chestdayrules #bencheveryday

I had a great leg day on Saturday. I actually did loads more than I usually do!

I did:

15 reps at 20kg x 2 sets
12 reps at 30kg x 2 sets
8 reps at 40kg x 2 sets

Box squats:
8 reps at 40kg x 5 sets
4 reps at 45kg x 5 sets
3 reps at 50kg x 1 set

50kg is a PB! Woo!

Decided to push myself a little today. Could have been easy to take it steady until I get my new program but felt good while squatting. After working up to 40kg I grabbed the box and did some box squats: 5 X 8 reps at 40kg 5 X 4 reps at 45kg 1 X 3 reps at 50kg The 50kg is a PB! Was tempted to try without the box to see how low I could go but my legs were feeling pretty tired by then so I decided to be sensible and wait! . When I loaded the 45kg on I never expected to be able to get down, let alone back up. When I put 50kg on I thought I was being optimistic. Glad I got 3 reps! Felt slow at the time but wasn’t so bad in the video! Happy Saturday everyone. Not drinking is awesome. . Finished with some 25kg pulse squats, leg press then some incline treadmill. . . . #puregym #legday #legworkout #puregymthorpepark #puregymleeds #buildthatbooty #girlswholift #girlswhosquat #thisgirlcan #sweatpink #fitnessmotivation #squatvideo #saturdaymorning #ukfit #ukfitfam #ukfitnessblogger #ukfitness #tothebar

On Sunday I had a go at some calisthetics. I found a very basic beginners routine involving negative pull ups, chin ups, planks, dips and walkouts. I also did some core work on top of that. I’m going to try to fit this style of workout into my routine to gain some strength. I’m not sure if I’ll ever be doing handstands and things like that, but I’d love to be able to do some press ups and muscle ups!

I’m off work next week so I’ll have a bit more time to add some of this stuff to the end of my workouts 🙂
