Day 31 of 90 Mixing it Up a Little



One of the issues with training 7 days a week is that your body quickly becomes used to routines and your mind quickly gets bored.  That is why I use Saturdays to experiment with different sets and reps, new exercises and today I even used the power plate.  Now I have got to be honest I was a little bit apprehensive when I first used it.  However, after an hour and a half of weights I thought it was either the plates or some mat work.  So I spoke to one of the instructors and do you know what I discovered?  That it was actually really good and had my abs burning like I have never felt in a while.  Check out the video and if your gym has got one give it a go and remember…”mix it up a little,” who knows you might break up the monotony and/or find something that works for you.

PS here’s my ice bucket challenge, if you wanna give just watch the video
