Here you have pre wedding workouts I did exactly a week before my wedding. It’s a combination of cardio, HIIT and resistance training. :)
As some of you may know, I have been experiencing some health issues with hypothyroidism and adrenal fatigue. I really wanted to just go super hard with all my workouts, but I’m a bit restricted.
Too much exercise actually makes me worse – I get really tired, fatigued and I think I actually gain weight.
So my workouts aren’t as intense as I would like to be, and I do need to rest when I feel fatigued / exhausted. But I am finally starting to recover and am getting better at knowing my limits.
I started running for the first time 1 week ago (after having a break for about 5 months) so my runs aren’t as great as I’m used to. But it’s a start!
Anyway these are the workouts I did last week.
MY PRE WEDDING WORKOUTS
I did a 20 minute run and a 45 minute walk in the morning, fasted.
I prefer to run at night or afternoon but due to health issues, I can’t exercise in afternoon. I think I managed to run about 3.5kms in 20 minutes (according to my iPhone), which I was pretty happy about!
I did a 1 hour power walk in the morning, fasted. I always try to start my day with a power walk if I can.
Mid morning I went to the gym with my mum and did a boxing circuit (see below). Afterwards I also walked for another 30 minutes on the treadmill. Ideally I would have liked to box for longer, but I need to be careful not to overdo it and I was starting to feel exhausted.
BOXING CIRCUIT (I did it on the bag as I didn’t have a partner)
1. 10 HARD AND 10 FAST PUNCHES x 6
2. SWISS BAL CRUNCHES x 15
3. SNAP JUMPS x 10
4. 2 JAB, 1 CROSS, 1 HOOK, 2 BODY RIP COMBO x 10 (starting with left)
5. PUSH UPS x 10
6. TRX ROWS x 10
7. 2 JAB, 1 CROS, 1 HOOK, 2 BODY RIP COMBO x 10 (starting with right)
8. 30 SECOND PLANK
9. 30 SECOND SIDE PLANK ROTATIONS (each side)
I did this circuit twice. After 1 round I rested for about 1 minute. But other than that, I didn’t have much rest.
I didn’t do my usual morning walk as I had to go for a fasted blood test. The blood test took about 1.5 hours and they had to try 3 times and with 2 different people!
I didn’t feel like exercising after that and both arms were a bit bruised. Also I was still a bit exhausted and knew my body needed a rest so today was a rest day.
I tried my luck at running again. I did another 20 minute run, plus a 45 minute power walk. I felt pretty good :)
I did a 1 hour power walk in the morning, fasted. And then I did this full body resistance workout (it’s a lighter resistance circuit like in my 3 Steps to Lean Legs Program). I only did 2 rounds though instead of 3.
I did a 45 minute power walk in the morning, fasted. Then I did quick this booty workout.
I did a 45 minute power walk in the morning, fasted. And then I had every intention of coming home and doing this HIIT ab workout.
BUT I was running super late as I had to be somewhere in the morning and then I had to pack and catch a flight and I just had a super busy day so didn’t fit anything else in.
I didn’t workout too hardcore but I was pretty active and happy with my efforts!
It’s Monday here now and I went for a quick 20 minute run this morning. So hoping to stay as active as I can this week leading up to the wedding too!
I will also post all of my meals from last week so keep your eyes out for that.
Anyway, if you have any questions, feel free to comment below xx
