I arrived tonight at Alive to get some sweat in, it was been a hard week so the hamster wheel just was not going to cut it, I needed to work hard and not think about the last week or so. When you are on the hamster wheel there is a lot of time to think, this is not what I needed. Damir had just left and I decided that I would try to put something together that would make me sweat hard. As I changed into my workout gear I made a plan in my head. I would do interval training on my own.
So this is what decided to do for the first 45mins or so:
1. 3:00mins combo on the heavy bag
2. 45 sec wall squat
3. 3:00mins Hamster wheel with an incline of 10 at a 2.7 speed
4. 45 sec Burpees (yes I did burpees without being told to do them)
5. 1:00min rest
I repeated this 6 times
It was awesome my heartbeat was in my head the whole time, after the 4th set I want to stop and take a break, but I thought would Damir let me stop ... no I don`t think so, I pushed on. As I did I felt the like I was going to vomit and I new I was working hard When the timer said that I had finished I still want to keep going, but I wanted to change it up a bit.
Then I changed it up and this is what I end with:
1. 2:00 combo on the heavy bag
2. 45secs wall squat
3. 45secs Trx Rows
4. 2:00 hamster wheel on 0 incline at 2.8 speed
5. 45Sec Dirty Burpees
6. 1:00 min rest
I repeated this 4 times
It was a great feeling to know that I could actually come up with a Great workout on my own. It was awesome; I know that I could push myself pretty hard. I do believe that although I push myself it is not the same as when Damir is pushing me. He can push me beyond my limits! I can only get close to the limit line but without him there to push me over the edge I just won’t go there.
People have made this comment to me on more than once in the last few months, ``you have been doing this for over a year now do you really still need a trainer`` to this I always say if you have never trained with a trainer you don’t understand they do more than just teach you what to do, they take things to the next level, always raising the bar! I although I could put together a workout where I sweated my ass off, I need Damir there to kick me over the line and make me do stuff I never thought I could do and point me in the right direction!!
It is nice to not be sick anymore, it was a long week !!
