Another Monday another blog post 💁🏼♀️
Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend and are ready to smash the week ahead.
I’m back on the wagon. We’ve finally started to get everything arranged for France so knowing there’s a chance I’m going to be in a bikini in a few weeks means my head is well and truly down. We’re going to watch Danny lift for GB in Bordeaux and we’ve decided to make it a road trip, so instead of flying we’re going to be driving all that way for three bench presses. Yep, all that way for 3 lifts! I’m sure there will be some partying involved too 😏.
If you follow my instagram you’ll have seen that on Thursday I had the chance to head to V1be in Manchester to take part in My Proteins Summer in the City event which was fab. I felt a little out of place at the beginning, being surrounded by body builders, basketball players and ice skaters all at the top of their game and then there was me. Relatively new to anything like this and nowhere near where I want to be yet but I did give it a good go. Of course I picked up heavy weights to start like Billy big bollocks and was absolutely shattered by the time we got to round three. I’m used to high weight low rep and the session we completed on Thursday was as many reps as possible followed by a quick sprint on the treadmill. Easy 🙃 I know I’ve been running with my mum but this session was a totally different ball game. I was having to really push myself to keep up with the others. So if you manage to catch the videos or pictures of the event and see a short girl dying in the corner. THATS ME 😆.
Thank you My Protein for the CUTE two pieces we wore. It felt good to not wear black whilst working out for once. I also picked up my new fave water bottle which makes me feel like I’m on Love Island 🤣.
Training has been pretty easy this week (famous last words), the only thing I’m still struggling with is my bench press. I feel like I always hit a wall with this lift and it takes me a while to get over it. I’m just going to have to keep grafting and I’m sure you’ll all be the first to know when I hit my target.
I made it to Sunday Squats yesterday which made me super happy. I’ve missed so many sessions with having my weekends packed with weddings etc so it was really nice to get back into a routine. I tried out more volume work this week, 70kg for 6x10s which worked up a bit of a sweat. Just going to gradually increase this each week and see where I get to. Squats are still my favourite 💁🏼♀️
Thanks again for reading guys. Hit me up if you have any tips to get those bench gains 😏💪🏼
Love J 💌
