So, Dan really put me through my paces yesterday! With his fitness instructor qualification, it was really great to train with him for the first time so I could have someone knowledgeable help me work on my form. He’s also given me ways forward to strengthen my upper body so I can actually do push ups (my absolute nemesis). It helped so much having him there showing me correct form and I didn’t lift that much weight-wise but I feel like for the first time I actually utilised the muscles as they are supposed to be.
I’ve also had some tester sachets of scimix protein shakes to try out and I’m officially in love, particularly with the strawberry flavoured one. They’ve brought out a new powder which I can’t remember the name of but it is geared towards muscle definition and toning rather than bulk so I can’t wait to buy a big tub when I can afford it! I recently found out that the company I bought my supposed gold standard powder from is being done for counterfeit products so I can’t help but wonder how beneficial it’ll be once I’m on genuine high quality protein.
Tomorrow I’ll be doing weights again because on Thursday we’ll be back in Wales so I will only be able to do Insanity or running. I’m still buzzing about being able to use weights at home and I’m excited about finally being able to build my upper body like I’ve always wanted to.
Hope everyone’s well and had a good kick-start to their workout week!
