Work Out Wednesday 06-06-12

 

 

After my week off training I have to tell you I am feeling rested and relaxed but super keen to get back into it.

Seriously keen!

What better way to warm up in this freakish, fickle and freezing cold weather we are having here in sydney than to get a good sweat on?

Honestly, is there anything more satisfying than smashing out a killer workout? Although exhausted, I almost always feel a million bucks when my workout is done. Don’t you?

This week we are rocking a total body workout with some cardio intervals thrown in just for fun. 

You are your own personal trainer.

Don’t be afraid to kick your own butt!

You can take it.

You are strong, you have big energy, you can do it! 

If your not feeling in the mood, give it 5 mins, let the endorphins kick in and you will want to see it through to the end.

Promise.

Always, always spend at least 5 mins warming up.

Remember to breathe . . .

Take water breaks when you need to

Finish with a 5-10 min cool down and stretch

Ok enough chit chat . . .
