Planking and beyond

December 3, 2012 in fitness, health

Is it just me or did last week go by way too fast. This is what went down the rest of the week.


A couple of rounds of each, each round you lower your rep, with lots of running in between.

  • Squat clock – which ever number you were on you did the about of squats, my legs were like jelly
  • 20 high leg step ups
  • 20 reverse lunges
  • 20 high step ups
  • 20 walking lunges
  • 20 star jumps
  • 20 side walking squats
  • 20 crunches
  • Plank
  • 20 side leg pulses with weights (each leg)

Thursday’s session was cancelled :(


Jayson really made up for the session we missed on Thursday.

Arms galore, halfway through the exercises I wondered whether or not 3kg weights were a good idea.

Same pattern a couple of rounds each, each round you lower your rep.

  • 20 tricep extensions
  • 20 overhead press
  • 20 bicep curls
  • 20 lateral raises
  • 20 tricep dips
  • 20 pec decs
  • 20 push ups

And then we did some core:

  • Plank, side plank, side plank with one arm raises, side plank with one leg raise,  reverse plank, reverse plank with flutter kicks, reverse plank with cross leg kicks
  • 3 way crunches with weights, 180 degree, 90 degree, bicycle crunches and 20 star jumps thrown in for fun

After week 2 I’m definitely feeling stronger, and my body is starting to feel stronger especially my arms and stomach. My running is improving; I can keep out for much longer when I’m jogging at a steady pace. I’ve also changed my eating habits getting in more fruit and greens and I’ve cut down on sweets which are my Achilles’ heel.

I can only image what Jayson has in store for this week…

  1. Shew, you’re gonna have a stomach of steel in a few weeks! Keep up the good work!

  2. I can vouch for the sweet tooth. The sweet container on your desk has been empty for days ;-) Well done!
