Today's session was hard :/
I did lying leg curl Super set with seated lateral raises followed by 15 sec dead treads, straight leg deadlifts super set with elevated press ups followed by more dead treads :/ long stride lunges super set with over head cable Extentions and yup, you guessed it, more dead treads (I almost puked on this one) then to finish I did a 10 min ab circuit. Working in a Superset fashion basically means you perform a minimum of 2 exercises back to back without any rest. This style of training suits me and is personally one of my favourites as its a great way to reduce the time my workout would normally take. Plus it shocks my system through a variable change, rest period etc that my body is not used too. This in turn will produce great results through increased lactic acid production and its great for fat burning too! So, if you haven't already I suggest you give it a try! :)

Ladies!!! Did you know that within certain times during your cycle you can tolerate more carbs than others? My trainer @ollyfosterfitness has devised me a new plan based around this. Its a little more complicated than usual but I've finally decided to put it in to place. If eating more carbs at a certain time can benefit me then I'm all for it! ;)
This is similar to carb cycling except it works on a weekly basis, not a daily basis. I'll let you know how I get on :)
Long walk today with @ollyfosterfitness followed by a pub lunch. If carlsberg did Saturdays...
Seated cable rows are one of my favourite upper body exercise. Great for your rear delts, Lats, forearm & biceps. Perfect for when you are rocking the backless dress ladies ;)
#tbt to my first USA pro shoot with my lovely hair & markup artist @cintalondon this was the first time I trained with Olly, it was to get in shape for this shoot. Over 18 months on I still stick to his advice and program's with my training & diet as for me, they are perfect!
All about the legs & glutes In today's session...
My sons had a haircut ;)
