“I have always been a regular gym-goer, middle-distance runner and part-time crossfitter, so when the world went into lockdown, I’ll admit, I was a little anxious about getting my daily exercise in! (A very little worry in the circumstances, I know). I had used HIIT as a workout method before- following The Body Coach on YouTube and completing Insanity as a teenager, but never used it as my sole method of working out.
When lockdown kicked in, I decided that I was going to leave this time in a better place than going in, in more ways than one but we will focus on the physical for now. So I signed up to a 30-day nutritional plan and decided to run a daily-workout programme for myself and my friends (it’s always good to have accountability). I have a good Sports Performance background but this allowed my creative juices to really flow. I used AMRAP’s, EMOM’s, RFT’s and challenge days to really push myself and those around me. I combined specific muscle group days to full body days to keep the body guessing and the mind interested. I loved it! And the results really showed!
What I learned from this is to keep the training interesting. If you are excited by the training and doing something different everyday, not only will you be able to train at a higher intensity but you are much more likely to be consistent! And consistency is King in most things in life.”
