The body achieves what the mind believes.
I love that saying! And I’m trying really hard to believe it. But lately it just hadn’t been so easy for me. I don’t know if it’s the combination of stress on top of stress that I have been feeling lately that my body seems to be shutting down on me slowly (just how it feels anyway).
I know for certain what I want to achieve physically and I have been pushing really hard (I think). Is there such a thing as “over training”? Some people say yes but others argue that it isn’t true. I’d like to believe in the latter. But for some reason my body has been telling me otherwise.
Week 4 of Rock Solid program suggests 4 training days. I was planning to push for 6 out of 7 days then I had to back up to 5 plus the challenges. Not because of injury or muscle soreness but because of fatigue and just an overall feeling of burnout. Yes I know, that was still pretty good and I’m happy about it. And even though I want to do more and I’m able to will myself to workout every morning, I had to listen to my body too. So that’s what I did and below are the results of my workout to finish off week 4.
Early morning: glass of water with acv, cup of coffee
Breakfast: 2 eggs sausage & cheese omelet with salsa, grapefruit, orange juice
Lunch: Egg salad sandwich, cucumber slices, handful of mixed nuts
Dinner: Pork Salisbury Steak (love this recipe!) with brown rice
I didn’t really have to do any workout today if I’m to follow the Rock Solid program strictly. But I did anyway, just because. And so I did the backside conditioning routine.
Heavy 1-arm swing: 4 sets/ 5 reps each/ 35 lbs
Light 2-hand swing: 4 sets/ 30 reps/ 35 lbs
This workout routine focuses more on the cardio. So the above routines were the only ones with weights. On top of those, I also did glute bridge, burpees, squat jumps & mountain climbers. I love this short & quick fat burning routine! 🙂
Day 15 of 21 days Kettlebell Press Challenge
-4 sets/ 2 reps each/ 25 lbs.
-1 set/ 2 reps each/ 30 lbs. (push press)
Day 15 of 25 days Plank Challenge
-plank for 100 seconds
The weekend only holds the 2 challenges I have taken up, and my eating won’t be so strict (not that I’m being really strict during the weekdays, lol!).
Stay tuned for Week 5 of 6 Weeks to Shred! We are so close to the finish line!
Thank you for stopping by!
