My February edition of Zest arrived yesterday, and in the back were four fitness plans to do at home. The one I am following for the next two weeks is "kickstart your fitness" which consist of 3 circuits which include 15 reps of each of these exercise: Bent over row, High knee step ups, bench dips,toe squats, ball pull overs and side step ups. You have to do this circuit twice a week and on the other days a 30 min interval cardio set, or a 45 min cardio steady session.
As it was chucking it down with real gusts of wind outside, thought I would give the circuits a whirl. Easy Peasy thought I, how wrong can a person be???
Bloody hell I am much more unfit than I thought, I was huffing and puffing on the first circuit, by the time I was on to the 2nd I was dripping in sweat and the third set completely wiped me out. Legs were like jelly, heart was pounding, in fact my whole body was shaking.
As it is Janathon, I decided I needed to do a little more to keep the wobbles at bay, so I strapped on leg weights, put a huge bag of spuds in my backpack and took the dogs for a 1.5 mile walk round skipwith common. I enjoyed it, not sure they did , even with their coats on they were shivering and looking at me in disgust.
