Hello! I am back from the deep depths of wherever bloggers go when they’re not blogging. I think its called real life.

What have you guys been up to? Hows your training???!!!

Mine has been FANTASTIC.My knee decided to give me a little trouble a few weeks back so I went back to bodybuilding style training ( my first love). It was really fun! I threw in a few crossfit WODs along the way

I had 3 solid weeks of PR hitting left right and centre. I was lifting SUPER heavy… think 4-8 rep range… And then I had one crappy week-to be expected. So I took three days off and this week I am mixing things up completely focusing on circuit training and WODs.

Yesterday’s upper body circuit looked like this:

Four rounds of:

1.dumbell press ( 2 x 10gk for 15 reps)

2. 100 high knees

3. 1 arm rows ( 10kg for 12 reps)

4. Β 100 high knees

5. pushups- 20

6. high knees

7. push press ( 20 kg for 12 reps)

8. high knees

9. renegade row ( 6kg for 10 reps each side)

10.high knees

I kept the weight light and reps high

My leg day looked like this:

* glute activation exercises

DIANE – 21-15-9 deadlifts/ handstand pushups

then I did:

weighted hip thrusts

back lunges supersetted with planks

goblet squats supersetted with a side lunge and squat combo ( side lunge left, squat, side lunge right is 1 rep)

straight leg deadlift supersetted with kettlebell swings.

I think my butt is going to need its own identity card one of these days..

And aside from training hard I have been eating tons of yummy things. Damn you JBΒ and your banana bread french toast. damn you. ( and by damn you i mean i love and adore you and bow down to the banana bread french toast alter)

So besides gorging myself on JB’s french toast and coffee cake… ( I really wish I was joking when I say I baked them both on the same day and ate them both myself) I have been making some seriously AWESOME food. I love food.

FYI- 2 cake evidence Β ( and a banana bread almond butter sandwich)

food= love.

I’ll post the roast chicken recipe soon… its a winner.

Happy day πŸ™‚
