Since the HIIT circuit was in the lead, I figured I’d record it before I had to leave to for work. But if you voted for the resistance band leg workout, don’t worry! I’ll be filming that later this week, so keep an eye out 😉
You can perform this at home ORRRR at the gym! It’s always good to switch up your cardio, so take a break from your normal treadmill walk or stair master workout & try this instead!
Videos are sped up, but just make sure you’re doing these at a speed where you can feel the burn & really make that mind to muscle connection.
Swipe to see the workout! The exercises are in order in the video in case you weren’t sure how to perform any. Enjoy! 😜😅
“So many people have whined for years that the running shoe brands do not do research to back up the claims that they make for their shoes, yet when they do do it they whine that they don’t trust the research as it was done or funded by a running shoe company. To claim that the study should be dismissed due to the funding source is the same thing as alleging that the researchers faked the data, in which case, that is defamatory and you may want to find a good lawyer. Yes, industry-funded research is not without its problems. It is widely known that studies with negative results (eg drug trials) may not ever get published, therefore biasing the collective body of literature on a topic. There are strategies in place, such a clinical trial registries to deal with that. The way to assess industry-funded research is to focus on the methods and results and ask the hard questions of that. Look at things like subject selection, allocation, blinding of assessors etc. Does that stack up to scrutiny regardless of the funding source? What I do see as a big problem in this sort of research is the spin on the results in the introduction and discussion sections if things are not quite as the funder would like. It is almost as they make excuses for the results not turning out how the funder would have liked. That is why you need to see past the spin and look as what and how the study was done.” -Craig Payne. Some tips on reading and interpreting studies
Some times you just gotta go for it! -
I started tonights leg session with Squats (of course)... and accidentally miss-calculated the weight on the bar... putting 90kgs on instead of 80kgs 😳
But it felt sooo light, I decided to go up another 10kgs to 100kg for sets of 8 reps! 🏋🏻♀️💙
It doesn’t matter how perfectly you plan your training loads out... I am a firm believer of using a little intuition in your training.... if you feel good... why not go for it.... of its just not there one day.... just pull back.
If you are experienced in the gym.... trust yourself....Your body knows what you need! -
If you are more of a beginner.... sometimes your self doubt can be a little louder than your intuition.... so tread lightly.... you are more capable than you think!
It might be too late to place your orders for a delivery before xmas guys, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t place orders today to pick up your sick new gym wear and have it delivered so you’re looking fresh to bring in the new year! @heraxhero 🔥💯

Biiig Monday morning stretches and baby dinosaur🦕 screeches to get this week off and rolling and centered...🧘🏻♀️
BREATHE IN •• new goals, new intentions, new declarations, a plan of action, and vision for what you want to accomplish this week... EXHALE •• all the shit that you’re beating yourself over from the weekend, last week/month, whatever it is. The only way for it to come back into your reality is if YOU recreate the thoughts, words, and actions that attracted it. Let it go. None of it matters anymore. Focus Forward!💛👉🏼
Remember: Size DO MATTERS!
If you are counting calories, you need to be a little more wary of the serving size of your food consumption.
For example, you can't possibly assume all apples are ~70kcal! On a side not, apples are generally healthy and is one of the best fruits you can have for a snack/part of your meal. But just be a little careful of the size of apple that you are going to consume! Make sure it is within your calorie control! ✅Just a little tip: Try to gauge using hand portions! Not really a fan of weighing food/carrying around a weighing scale, but in the first few phases, you can try to weigh and get a hang of it using visual and hand portioning. Ultimately, you will be able to gauge the serving size without a weighing scale! 👍🏻
The attitude part isn't easy but it's a choice. If you think hard enough of the people you've came across in your life you can probably recall people who had enough to at least be comfortable or were well off yet complained about everything and also those who seemingly have a long way to go in life yet still find ways to joke and smile while progress seeds are in place. Get out of your head and notice the smell off fresh air, being able to see, speak etc... That's how's you begin to enjoy "life" moment to moment up until that situation you may be stressing about turns around. #Progressfitt
