Well, giggle worthy. Mwa haha.
Do you have any fitness funnies you’d love to share?
What’s this obsession with having a gap between your legs when you stand with your feet together?
Y’all know it comes down to the size of your hips, right?
Ladies, there’s not a lot you can do to change what God gave you.
And this would be a terrible reason to try getting pregnant.
Can we all just agree that anyone looking there (let alone judging you!) is a creep?
Because damn girl, you be fiiiiiiine.
So… serious question: who else gets serious plumber crack when squatting?
In the comfort of my own living room it’s fine. Cool breeze and all that.
Boot camp on the Wellington waterfront in front of a team of fellow boot-campers… Not so fine. Especially when kit out in boxing gloves, squatting between sets. No one deserves to be subjected to that horror!
Enough is enough – with the lack of a better option, I’ve invested in a couple of long men’s singlets. Men’s singlets because oh my Lordy they are so much cheaper. And fit better. What’s up with that, Adidas? Huh? Huh?!
So yeah, who else has this…errr… Issue?
And what do you do to deal with it?
Boot camp has been getting better and better – and I definitely feel it in between! There have been plenty of body weight exercises, more boxing, and suicide sprints.
The latest ‘thing‘ seems to be what our trainer calls snack planking. Ummmm… what the?! What the indeed.
I had never heard of it – and googling it isn’t much help either. For those of you who are as confused as I was when I first heard the phrase, the idea behind snack planking is multiple bursts of planking with limited rest time in between.
10 second plank.
4 seconds rest.
Sounds easy, doesn’t it?
It is in the beginning…
…Then you just want to collapse into a pile of sweat and tears.
We did them yesterday at the end if our session in a car parking building (wet weather back-up plan). I have never been so thankful for being able to lay on a dirty car park floor in my life. Any tears were tears of joy, once it was over.
Ouch. My arms.
My very first session as testing too – I wrote about it here. And I’m glad I noted my results, because it gives me a standard platform to compare my progress.
After the last test, I mentioned that I was going to focus on my upper body and core. And I certainly feel like I’ve improved – though my planking results don’t show it.
Next focus will be on my mental stamina: got to improve those planking and wall-sits times! Maybe crack 60 sit-ups, too?
Tomorrow has an early start – not only does boot camp start at 6am, but I’m planning to run/walk/zombie-shuffle my way there, across the other side of town. It’s not far… only about 6km, and I’ve walked home in under an hour before, but I don’t want to be too tired before I even start the boot camp session (Boxing – yay!).
Thankfully, work has a coffee machine that even I can use. And it doesn’t even taste foul! *
*just not particularly nice sometimes.
