I promised a workout, so here it is.
This is a typical workout I will include once a week into my regime, and this is the first workout of the week on a Monday (I try not to skip a Monday workout – if i do it gets me in a really bad mental state for the rest of the week). I sometimes adjust the exercises based on what equipment is free at the gym because a Monday at the gym is normally super busy!
Main equipment used: smith machine, cables
Smith Machine lunges x 10 on each leg with between 10-15kg on each side, I will super set this with curtsy lunges with a 15kg bar.
Raised front leg lunges sing smith machine x 10 on each leg with 10-15kg on each side, I will super set this with step ups with a 15kg bar.
Single leg dead lifts using smith machine with between 5-10kg on each side, I will super set this with stiff leg dead lift using a 35kg bar.
Front squats using smith machine with 10-15kg on each side, I will super set this with body weight overhead squats using a 10-15kg plate.
Using cables i will super set squats and pull through dead lifts on a suitable weight.
I will then target glutes using cables and super setting side kicks an back kicks. Straight after these exercises i will do the same move using a resistance band.
I’m currently 32.5 weeks and this kind of workout is becoming more and more difficult. I have started to take a lot longer to complete my workout as I am getting out of breathe a lot quicker. I’m listening to my body and trying to do as much as I can.
I will keep you posted with this weeks workouts and will also try to get some pictures/videos of what I am currently doing.
