The Sunday Supplement W/E 10/2/19

I’m on holiday!!

I’m off for a week of, hopefully, chilling out with friends and family. I don’t know about you, but I choose to take the time off from training to give my body a rest and recharge my batteries to get back to training fresh and ready for a new challenge!

Here are the best articles from the past week to keep you entertained and informed, as well as the usual round up of social media and a great workout to try.

Workout of the week


Inspired by my upcoming short break, I thought I’d give you a workout that you can do in your hotel room or on the balcony in the sun on your next trip.

All you need is a light resistance band and your bodyweight.

Pushups/ incline pushups/ Band resisted pushups x20s, rest 40s

Squats/ band resisted squats x20s, rest 40s – Set up as you would for the band rdls and squat instead of hinge.

Banded RDLs x20s, rest 40s

Seated band row x20s, rest 40s – sit tall on the floor, loop the band around your feet and row the ends toward you as you would on a seated row.

Dead bug/ banded dead bug x20s, rest 2 minutes

Repeat for 4-8 rounds.


Have an awesome Sunday!
