I’m relatively new to volume training but thought I’d look into it as I was getting pretty bored with my weight lifting routines, now I try to incorporate it for upper and lower body at least once per fortnight. It’s great if want a change or if you’re in a busy gym and can’t get… Continue reading Volume Training
Shopping for sports bras can be pretty difficult; working out whether or not a bra will provide enough support, be comfortable, look ok under sport clothes and be able to withstand lots of washing can be a mine field. I’ve tried lots and lots of different types of sports bras and always find myself coming… Continue reading M&S Sports Bras
Hello there, long time, no posts…..again! Well, this time there’s been good reason, I had surgery. This year was the big 30 for me and I decided I’d FINALLY get the surgery I’ve been wanting for around 10 years, mastopexy and augmentation (boob job and a lift), so I’ve been out of gym action for quite… Continue reading 3 Day Doms
Recently I decided to employ the services of Leanne Forker, an Edinburgh based PT to kick my bum in to shape, and kick it she certainly did! She took one of the Grit Cardio classes at the gym local to me, her crazy enthusiasm and her being in prep for a bodybuilding competition motivated me… Continue reading Hiring a PT!
Hello! Spring is finally here and I for one am extremely delighted! Driving to work when it’s light and coming home again……..when it’s still light is amazing! I’ve been a bit quiet lately as I’ve had a terrible time getting over a bad cold/perhaps a touch of flu, haven’t we all lately? Anyhow, yesterday was… Continue reading Spring has sprung!

The powder is a nice fluffy white one and it mixes REALLY well with water, no lumps, no undissolved bits, the flavour is intense and… Continue reading The Curse – Preworkout
‘What’s a pre-workout?’ ‘You’re a gym go-er and you don’t know what a pre-workout is?’ I remember the conversation well. Then the research. Then the first ever pre-workout. Man alive this stuff is good! Nowadays I rarely ever go to the gym without having first taken a pre-workout, unless its a cardio session later in… Continue reading Pre-workouts.
Hello! Apologies for the delay between posts, I was away with work the last week and it was crazy busy! My work involves a lot of travel and I don’t usually mind it but last week was a slog. I was staying in an ‘apartment’, a very loose word for it. I’d say it was a… Continue reading I’ve lost that loving feeling!!
Hello! Today I thought I’d write about one of my favourite ways to get in a quick cardio session, Tabata workouts. Some days when I really don’t feel like treadmill intervals or just want to mix things up I like to throw in one of these workouts. I guess MetaFit or LesMills’ Grit classes are… Continue reading 1 Tabata, 2 Tabata, 3 Tabata, 4….
Workout music is pretty much essential to getting a good cardio session in for me. So I thought I’d share my top 20 songs to workout to. Apologies in advance for some of the cheesier ones! What do you like to listen to? Have any of you tried listening to audio books when you’re working out?… Continue reading Workout Music
