200 Sit Up Challenge

Yesterday morning I hit the gym before work around 8am and it was packed! I don’t normally go to the gym before work on a Monday so I was surprised to see so many people on the machines.

It also meant that all of the treadmills were full! So much for my treadmill interval workouts. So I jumped onto the cross-trainer instead and completed the following workout (based on this pbfingers workout)

It was harder than I thought, and after a tough Body Pump class on Sunday my thighs were burning! I cooled down on the bike for 10minutes afterwards before stretching on the PowerPlates.

After seeing the 200 Sit Up Challenge online, I decided to give it a go. Today I took the initial test to see how many sit ups I can do now to see what programme to follow. I achieved a measly 20 full situps which puts me on plan 2. This involves 3 workouts a week for a month, I can’t wait to see the results!
