Juneathon day 8 – More Monday Madness

Monday is now officially leg day πŸ˜€

I went heavier today than I did last week. I was a bit more confident in my squats this week, although they are not where they used to be they are getting there! I did 1×5 @ 45kg, 1×5 @50kg, 1×5 @ 52.5kg and 2×5 @ 55kg which made me happy πŸ™‚ the max I used to do was 60kg so I am nearly there! πŸ™‚

I am hoping for a less prolonged bout if DOMS this week…I am hoping I have started to adapt πŸ™‚  

Lunchtime was dedicated to walking today and generally looking around, I wasn’t rushing I was just enjoying the sunshine and being out of the office πŸ˜€

This evening, due to a low attendance (1 person) and a game that really needed at least two people… I ended up not only teaching but taking part In my circuits class πŸ˜€

 Admittedly, we only did half a class in the end as Graham was not very well and had dragged himself out to ho me out!!  
It was a fun class…although I didn’t like myself much when I made myself do up and down planks and super slow squat!!

So all in all that is juneathon day 8 well and truly done!!

    Wow. You are doing so good. Very inspiring after my weak visit to the gym yesterday lol maybe one day I can copy your workout.

    • Ice_Badger says :

      Firstly thank you πŸ˜€
      secondly…any visit is better than no visit πŸ™‚
      thirdly, you are welcome to copy my work out, but I wouldn’t recommend a split program until you are used to lifting πŸ˜€
      You should definitely include some of the elements though (squats and deadlifts and bench presses etc πŸ˜€ )
