My thoughts on day 1 – Exercise & Nutrition

Today has been the first day of the rest of my life….well till September and my 30th birthday.

No need to think about what I have to do in the evening! The evenings are mine to do with what I want! What a feeling!!!

The exercises that I completed were all Compound Supersets.       

2 sets with 12 reps 

(They did take me over an hour to do but it was the first time! I hope to get these in around 30 mins).

Dumbbell One Arm Row

Push ups

Dumbbell Shoulder Press

Standing Calf Raise (one leg)

Dumbbell Curl

Overhead Dumbbell Extension

Dumbbell Squat

Stiff legged Deadlift
