Pretty low volume week, other than Saturday. Went to the Lulu Lemon Sweatlife event. Tried 4 completely new classes – psycle, posterior chain (basically a new take on bums legs and tums.. not what I expected but fun), RowWOD, and a flow / handstand class with LIFT the Movement.
The session with the LIFT guys was absolutely epic, these guys really know their sh*t. I can’t recommend them enough!

Another fun week with plenty of variety. We had some overhead squats mid week which is something I have not hit for a while, so will remember to include them more often!
Snuck in a bit of swimming as well – something I’m definitely not great at! – as they say work on your weaknesses 🙂
Had a reminder on Saturday that you sometimes have to listen to your body, was quite a long week in and out of the gym and I had to really back off on the squat weight / volume I had planned to hit. Yes follow your programme, but also always listen to your body!

Threw in a couple of rest days this week and some solid training. Mixed it up at the weekend by chopping down a couple of trees then cutting them into manageable pieces. Also tried a yoga class on Sunday – mobility and rolling should be considered a key part of your program 🙂
