This month I continued with only working out at the gym three days per week and attempting to fit in one cardio session where I could easily.
I also started the Whole 30 during August which saw my eating change a little, no paleo treats! Given I workout at night time and my hunger is always the worst from 4pm until dinner time I felt pretty darn good so long as I had a little something to eat pre-workout.
So, into my workouts for the month:
1st – Back at the gym (In Wanganui! We had a long Weekend)
2nd – Rest
3rd – Rest
4th – Legs at the Gym (In Hamilton)
5th – Rest
6th – Gym – Upper Body
7th – Rest
8th – Gym – Back.
9th – Rest
10th – 8km Walk (to and from the Travel Expo)
11th – Game of Indoor Netball
12th – Rest
13th – Upper Body
14th – Leg Day (Squats, Abductor, Leg Extension, Leg Curl) and a bit of Ab work.
15th – Rest
16th – Back day (100 dead lifts at 60kg and a few other bits and pieces)
17th – Rest Day
18th – Game of Indoor Netball, Legs at the gym
20th – Upper Body at the Gym
21st – Rest
22nd – Rest
23rd - Rest
24th - Back Day (Heavy Deadlifts and my back was feeling it for a few days!)
25th – Game of Indoor Netball.
26th – Upper Body at the Gym (Swapped from legs as my back was still sore from deadlifts and I don’t think I couldn’t done many squats!)
27th – Rest
28th – Legs at the Gym
29th – Rest
30th – Back and a few random things like sled pushes (we tried a new gym)
31st – Rest
We tried a new gym at the end of the month for something different (review to come). This is something we will likely do a bit more of over the coming months. Partly to see what other options we have and partly to see what we like and dislike about the gyms for future knowledge.
Have you ever tried a gym other than the one you usually go to? For those of you who don’t go to a gym where do you usually exercise?
