Well … This is it !!!
This is Day 1 of the 30 Day Real Time Challenge.
The Instructions on how to take part in this challenge are – Here
Are you ready for your very first Real Time Training Session with me ?
Take your time, do your best& take breaks if you need to.
Let’s Do This !!
Todays Coffee Talk:
For all you crazy hardcore Bodyrockers like me out there …. you will love this workout today !!
I smashed this one in Spain with the local Gym PT who I have known forever !! – it made him sick … lol
Don’t worry if you feel queazy – we have all been there lol - You know the feeling when you push too hard or when you just started HIIT workouts for the first time ? It’s like your dying lol
What always amazes me is this -
The same young lad’s were in the gym that ALWAYS look at me when I come into their gym domain lol
I basically take up a space on the floor – Jump about like a mad woman for about 20 mins, sweating everywhere with nothing more than a mat, a weight, a bench & my trusty Interval timer (beeping away lol which I know annoys them – as i’m a girl and no beeps or girls are allowed in the ‘man gym’ lol ). They just watch me clearly thinking I am a crazy ”girl” who has no idea what i’m doing lol.
I in turn watch them year after year doing there ‘weighted’ rep routines (while my beeper beeps away and I sweat everywhere) i.e they do – chest, back, etc … which is very cool & I know LOADS of ripped guys who do this & I have enjoyed doing this in the past with my sister & her partner … however, I have been coming to this same spit & sawdust gym for 5 years now & they haven’t seem to have changed their workout plan, weight selection or there results from what I can see :/ … yet they look at me like i’m the crazy one lol
Maybe it’s because there isn’t anyone to inspire them or be brave enough to make a ”noise” in there”man space” ? or maybe there isn’t anyone to show them different ways to train in the local area ? whatever it is, I am VERY proud & more than happy to burst into any gym or space & show them how Bodyrockers roll.
You never know, there may be some other ‘crazy people’ in there just dying to join in – like the Gym PT, who now carries his Interval timer everywhere, or some people may just need someone else to be brave enough to HIIT the dance floor first so they don’t feel so intimidated or ”silly” doing it alone.
… Anyway the point to my story is this …..
It wasn’t until they watched the Gym PT throw up after our 20 min HIIT that alllll of a sudden they all stopped steering & wanted to talk to me & ask to train with me ( even tho for 6 weeks they have looked at me like a crazy person who has entered their man space lol ) – it took someone they respected to struggle (lifting the same weight as ”a girl”) for them to take me seriously lol
I am sure a lot of you have had this scenario @ one time in your life ?
What we do looks ‘easy’ but it’s really not … working every muscle group 5 days a week (in my case) is HARD & challenging & it’s not until you try it do you realize that, it not only works you, it challenges you in ways nothing else does especially if you go as hard & as heavy as you can.
I guess that’s why when we do loose or mojo or fall off the wagon we know it takes a-lot of will power to get back on it & start again as we ALL know that seriously tough ”starting point” we need to get through …
Also, taking the above into account – If you are just starting HIIT workouts you need to give yourself credit for just completing the workout. I’m serious, even with no weight at all these are tough!. No matter how slow you go, or even if you have to stop & take a break while going through it – as long as you try thats the important thing.
Be patient & DON’T GIVE UP. It DOES get easier & you need to realize that these FULL body workout really do work, it won’t happen overnight but believe in the process as it WILL happen.
I love the rush to the body to move as you move from exercises to exercise so quickly & sweat so much – feeling strong & empowered & most of all you are done in a short amount of time feeling ready to take on the day – esp. if you have smashed your previous PB or scores.
So that brings me to todays HIIT Real Time Workout.
Enjoy it .. & remember how strong you are for just getting through it.
