My workout routine.

Daily fitspiration: Workout because you love your body, not because you hate it!

I consider myself quite level headed  (well,more or
And i have a healthy view of diet and training.... in my non expert opining.

I believe  that balance is key, I`m an "all things in moderation" kind of girl.
That especially applies to my eating habits and workouts.

I don`t believe in starving myself (or over eating...) and i don`t believe in any extremes in my training (either no workout or training everyday several times a day)

It`s been a looooong process, but I`m finally in tune with my own body.

So how often do i workout?
well that varies from week to week,but generally i work out 3-5 days a week.
But i try stay active 7 days a week. (i said active NOT training)
What do i mean by active?
I mean that those days i don`t go to the gym, i go for a walk,or cycle (just  easy breezy cycling)
or gardening ,any low intensity activity to keep my body moving.

So my workout routine ,how does my week look like?
I try to switch it around a little so i don`t get stuck in a pattern.


(what a typical week looks like)

Since i`m training for my first race,i run this distance once a week.

Why all runners looking to lose weight NEED interval training.
TUESDAY: Arms/shoulders/back
I warm up on the treadmill for 10 minutes fast walk, or warm up on the rowing machine.
Then i select six strength moves:

Assisted pull-ups , wide and narrow ( either hang a rubber band from the rack, or hang it across on the barbell hooks)Works shoulders,triceps,delts and upper back.

The upper barbell hooks,just Place them
lower,and attach the elastic band across.
Grab the handles at the top,stand on the band and
do pull-ups .

Bicep curl (either with a hand weight or barbell)

Biceps - Dumbbell Bicep Curl

Tricep extension with weight,lying Down
Overhead triceps extensions

Lateral raises
(works shoulders and delts)
Do these 16 power moves to build strong, sexy, defined SHOULDERS. You'll hit your abs and burn off fat, too.

Wednesday: Active rest day
I usually go for a walk most of the time. preferably 3-5 km
or 30-60 min (as a minimum)

I warm up with 5 min walking, and then some intervals
