Week 5: Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide

WOW. Week 5 is a STEP UP! I had to modify quite a few of the moves in order to keep a bit of rhythm going in the circuits. Or I would have spent a lot of time collapsed on the floor trying to make a 3rd or 4th rep. This is no joke this week. BUT I had moped around for a couple of days feeling sorry for myself last week, so it was pretty good to finally sort my head out by the end of the week.

Last week I wrote about how I hadn’t really got the results that I had wanted from Weeks 1-4 and I wanted to improve upon that. So, I did step up my mindset along with the training this week. I also drank more water, ate less rubbish and just ate less in general. I did however have the minor issue of a weekend in Tuscany with wine and cheese tasting to contend with, but don’t you worry – I coped very well by just getting on with it (wink, wink…)

Here is how my week 5’s workouts went:

Week 5 – Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide
MON – Rest Day
TUES – Workout 1: Legs
WEDS – Rest Day (lots of walking)
THURS – Workout 2: Arms & Abs
FRI – Rest Day
SAT – LISS: 13km Run
SUN – Workout 3: Full Body

I’m happy with my workout results. I didn’t gain any weight in Italy which was a plus. My runs are starting to pick up as I realise how close I am to my half marathon, so  if I don’t always get mush LISS in, I don’t mind. I’m pretty active on my ‘rest days’ anyway – they’re often the ones where I’m running around the city with no time to work out anyway! Bring on Week 6!
