Spartan 45 mins Workout Part 3
AROO!! Here's more option on training.
Let me just say this, after a full day of indoor cycling course on Sunday, my legs were not as co-operative this morning. No double classes today as I focus full gear on my Spartan Super, which race is in 2 weeks' time.
How lucky/unlucky am I when I found out there's only 2 participants today but @zaffyam stopped midway for an errand and then I had the full attention of Ryan. Boy. Good thing the audio is off, but I have not cursed so much for a long ...
Any girl or boy can.
No matter the age.
No matter the size.
Fitness is for everyone.
What's your excuse, nobody is listening. Get off that couch. Put those chips away. Do yourself a favour, take care of your body. Bring the sexy back. Start your fitness today!
Spartan 45mins Workout Part 2
Gearing up for the big Spartan Super Race on Saturday May 7th. Which literally means I have less than 14 days from now to dooms day!!
I have been sampling the Spartan workouts offered at Fitness First gyms, and will be posting my routine for you, if you need any ideas for training. If you have something to share too, please comment. My aim really is to finish the race. Gracefully perhaps. With as little penalty Burpees as possible.
Spartan Super is 13+KM trail run and 29+ obstacles.
Spartan 45 mins Workout Part 1: Aroo, Fit & Fab Spartan!
The race is looming in 2 weeks time. Need to get my arse in gear quickly.
Last week, I got my Fit and Fab team together for sweaty hot session at the Evan's Track, the temperature's about 36 degrees but it felt like 42 degrees in this heatwave.
We managed it in about 40 minutes, though some felt a bit dizzy and nausea in the heat, so a longer recovery for them between sets.
800m run, 10 x Burpees
800m run, 20 x Mountain Climbers
800m run, 10 x Tuck Jumps
800m run, ...
Being on Top Turns Me On… Wilson Trail Stage 1
If you, like me love being in control and curating the end goals of your desires then maybe you should read on :) Mountain or hills are often viewed as phallic symbols, of great strength and therefore hard to conquer. So the feeling of having conquered one, one step at a time, huffing and panting but always focusing on the end goal is worth climbing to the peak elated and orgasmic. Enjoying the views from atop is always a reward and knowing you have worked your calves, thighs and butt ...
How I Got My Sexy Back…
It's easy to fall into a routine. It's easy to remain where you are today. Being a mum doesn't mean you stopped living for yourself. Being a mum doesn't mean you have to live in your children's shadows. Being a mum doesn't mean you are just somebody's wife.
There was a phase in my life where I lived in a cocoon, stopped being aware of the latest blockbusters or top 100 billboard charts. I don't know what's the latest fashion trends nor cared about the latest world news. For 3 years, I threw ...
Riding Makes my Crotch Hurts – Truth or False
The answer is obvious. For any beginner, any kind of riding whether its the bike type or the horse type or anything attempted for the virginal time would hurt. But please don't give up, as pleasure comes with experience :)
There are a few reasons why most first time bikers experience crotch pain after a cycling workout. I have provided these tips to many beginners and most claimed they have helped:
Do not hug your bum on the saddle. If you have the right cycling position your bum is ...
REVIEW: Les Mills RPM 70 – does it make me wet and wanting?
Let me just say this, my maximum heart rate when I exited the class was at 161. That's the highest I have achieved in the last 2 months of various workouts. Each track works you up right from the start and there was hardly any recovery. So it wasn't unusual to see your heart rate spiking and finally peaked at 161.
This time, Glen Ostergaard has changed the track sequences and added more cardio and extended interval routines. We also have sprint standing. There was very little recovery from ...
