There is no substitute for hard work..think that’s true?
Hard work will only pay off with good nutrition and a solid game plan of action with your own exercise plan that you’ve made, so make a conscious choice of what you eat & drink, and how many days you workout & definitely take days off to help with your recovery… believe me your body needs that rest & recovery.
What was my workout plan like for the past ten days?.... I’ve had just three gym sessions, seriously just three,
Here is what I did on Sunday 27th December 2015
Foam roller 15mins back/ legs
Woodway curve 1Km sprint walk sprint walk ( 4mins 45sec)

I've got a few days off work so I'm pacing myself I don't charge into the gym and try to kick the ass out of every weight I see, I'm also looking forward to the next couple of workouts before the end of the year hopefully keeping injury free.
Workout plans can be a bit confusing so another blog on the way to explain the above sequence for those that want to know more of how this structure all works.
"TRAIN, EAT, WORK, SLEEP, REPEAT" AND LIFE GOES ON...
It's good to recharge your mind & body spend time with family ( being mindful of overtraining) put my feet up have a look at what’s happened in the past couple of months in terms of my business, my body and all the hard work I have put in with clients on the gym floor, work I have done online for all you nice folk that read my blogs & watch my videos, weigh up my goals expectations & gives thanks that I have the opportunity to do a job that I love and have a real passion for.
January is fast approaching & it can be a stressful time in the gym for newbies & regular gym goers alike as frustrations can clearly be seen as so many people get lost lost in translation.
You come into the gym raring to go like a Bull who is not going to give two f*cks …but you haven’t been lifting the iron in a long time (or you have, but not really making any real gains) you feel compelled (by the force of the dark Jedi) to just blast it out.
Take a step back and a couple of breaths, think about what you really want to do, how can you get a good game plan of action? think about the journey not just the destination make it a S.M.A.R.T GOAL speak to a couple of personal trainers & I’ll guarantee with just these few tweaks your gym experience will be so much better than going alone.
