Week 9: Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide

Week 9 was when Kayla was on holiday and posting photos like the below on Instagram, so I had a bit of extra motivation! I have definitely eaten better this week and have upped my water intake. I still struggle with the more advanced moves here – I do basic tricep dips with my feet on the floor instead of raised and I am still struggling with a basic push-up, let alone one with my feet on a bench! So I do modify the decline push-ups. The point is that I am doing it and I enjoy fitting in a full-body resistance workout every week.

Here is how my week 9’s workouts went:

Week 9 – Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide
MON – Rest Day
TUES – Workout 2: Arms & LISS: Run 4.5km
WEDS – Rest Day
THURS – Workout 1: Legs
FRI – Workout 3: Abs
SAT – Rest Day
SUN – LISS: 10k run

I was really happy with my running this week. I am trying to get faster and my 10k run on Sunday was really such an achievement for me – I did it in 1hr 05, about 5mins quicker than I would have otherwise. I also work my Kayla workouts around my runs (i.e. run in the morning and then do a bit of work and bring forward an abs or arms workout on a running day.) We are getting really close to the end of Kayla and I’m getting excited to start to mix up my workouts a little bit, whilst still incorporating this Kayla workout.
