Scheduling and hard work.

This June has been quite month for me. I’ve managed to get 4 workouts per week and now it feels like it’s time to add fifth workout to the schedule – but to do this wisely. My weeks have consisted of 2-3 CrossTraining workouts and rest days plus one additional longer cardio exercise. Now this week I’ll add something to the list.

I’ve decided to do our CrossTraining teams scheduled push- and pull workout routines once a week, 2 x Tabata and adding one recovery exercise, most likely biking for 45-90 min to the week. I’ll do this routine for 3 weeks now and then I’ll take a week off. Well not ‘off’ but will take it easy, train my weight lifting techniques, stretch, take care of my muscles etc. I think that this 4 weeks hard work + 1 week recovering is a good tempo, we’ll see eventually.

This week I’ve been really pushing it, thriving to be better with every rep. It’s funny, because at the beginning of the year I found myself quite easily cheating on my reps, but not anymore. I keep hearing our head coaches voice in my head: “tight package! bum backwards! open you’re chest!”. This is great, because when you cheat, you risk injuring yourself.

Today I have the day off from work and like usually when I’d have the time to sleep in, I woke up at 5:20 am. Hit the gym at 7:00 am and did my TABATA routine there, was absolutely pumped afterwards. Now, I’m going to chill the rest of the day and tomorrow will bike for a nice stretch.

Take care guys!
