I just had to go what day is it happy friday you guys and i feel like this lockdown challenge has kind of made me lose all sense of days which is probably a good thing is because i’m not gonna lie i’m absolutely loving this i’m loving like the mix of the different styles of workouts.
Particularly the cardio box um so anyway today is gonna be phenomenal i’m so excited this is my favorite type of workout it’s the cardio versus weights will also weights versus cardio because it’s a tiny little bit of cardio um but before we get started if you wouldn’t mind smashing the thumbs up button also.
Hit and subscribe if you haven’t already by smashing the thumbs up button it helps me reach more people like you and and type in if you can what has been your favorite style of workout was it yesterday’s pilates was it the pure cardio weights versus cardio or the cardio box and so today we’re.
Actually doing a lot of upper body you guys because we have neglected upper body i’m so excited to do arms back a little bit of chest all of that nice stuff and then we’re going to be working into the hips and the butt as well not too much core today so you’re going to need a heavier set of.
Weights i’ve got 5 kg and then a lighter set of weights if you don’t have the light heavier lighting please don’t worry just work with what you’ve got and then you’re going to need your lean adjustable band i went with the black purely because it matches this cute ombre there you go that’s the thought process.
That goes into it so guys we’re going to start off just by coming down bending slightly through the knees and then just letting our body hang swaying side to side slightly did anyone write in what their favorite type of black girl has been i’m actually.
and then just swaying side to side oh my gosh you guys seem to really like the cardio box yeah awesome so you guys this is going to be a little bit easier to follow if you do have the lean long bands please have them close by but i know a lot of you they sold out in.
10 minutes so i know a lot of you didn’t manage to get your hands on them so i’m going to be using them a little bit but giving variations and then when they’re restocked pretty soon we’re going to be going in with those bands so you’ve got to you’ve got to grab those bands if you can so just side to side feeling a nice.
Stretch for the body i’m actually i’m excited about upper body alex are you joining i’ll be doing my own he’s got his neck set out you guys yeah yeah just not mine try and keep up and then bringing the feet in a little bit wider or closer i should say shoulder distance.
Apart double twist one two and then in the other direction do that and one and then feet come nice and wide again slightly pivoted outwards we’re gonna windmill side to side oh.
slow this down you guys okay two more upper body as a whole amazing work we’re just gonna now just open the legs out good okay you guys so we’re doing three minute circuits like before.
One minute exercise number one it’s controlled okay it’s not about speed one minute exercise number two exercise three is 30 seconds of pure cardio then you get 30 seconds of rest so within eight circuits you have a choice right now to lock in the type of cardio you’re gonna do.
I’m showing you four variations okay so it’s really important that you listen to this you’ve got four variations and you’re allowed to choose what cardio you do during your 30 seconds so i’m being very generous but at the same time you guys have got to push it for me okay.
Super important i’ve got to say you need a chair as well variation number one so simple it’s just a toe tap if you’ve got something like a weight in front of you amazing that is the easiest of the four it’s a nice way of just getting the heart rate or keeping the heart rate up after the.
Weights variation number two is going to be a step up without the weights this is about speed you guys okay so just keeping it moving 30 seconds is variation two variation three is going to be a jump jack into a plank jack.
You can wear the band if you want to you jump back like so come down plank jack one two one two okay last one is going to be a modified birth piece okay so what you’re going to do is do a full back key into a stand then a frogger.
Full berkey steps then a frogger okay i hope that makes sense you guys okay first circuit is going to be a nice upper body circuit you’re going to need your heavier weights okay knees are wide feet are wide slightly pivoted outwards.
Take that body weight down and then lean the chest forward here place the hand if you need to grow down change sides so it’s squeezing those shoulder blades together okay exercise number two there’s going to be a curl slight bend in the knees into a fly so it’s one two.
Three four okay you guys then you choose your cardio i hope that makes sense are we ready three two one let’s go you guys really squeezing those okay thank you guys.

Them through how are you getting on with the guide honestly i know it’s hard like i know a lot of you have been very sore please by the way make sure you’re taking breaks when you need them it is a guide you don’t have to be doing it like that every single day and also have behind the battle leg.
Please make sure you’re eating right okay so lots of protein for recovery enough carbs for energy obviously your fruits and veggies for protein changing fat a lot of you have been asking what i’m doing to supplement because you know that i don’t eat meat.
I do it fish but not meat i have a plant-based whey by optimum nutrition i actually alternate between that either the plant-based way or the gold standard or the lean to be honest all of their products are incredible i have the vanilla flavor i actually.
Honestly for me hamstrings oh the vanilla flavor is the best because you can mix it because i love making smoothie bowls and stuff so sometimes i’ll have it with acai so then i have like the anti-inflammatory for my skin and berries flaxseed to be honest it ends up being like a little bit of a.
Rainbow um so that’s why i love the vanilla but alex you’re a chocolate oh yeah always chocolate okay changing size how you feeling i’m gonna quickly log in okay and then please don’t forget you guys you have your finisher actually while i’m on that.

Gorgeous okay all right guys oh my gosh oh is it diwali diwali did you say it diwali don’t you want diwali um amazing happy holidays you guys um i’ve been eating way too much sweets and i really needed this that is awesome well i’m glad you’re enjoying it.
Um yes ombre it is on gymshark i need a shower so bad christina i love it um what do you think about meal replacements like shakes it’s a hard time having breakfast but don’t know if it’s healthy uh i i don’t like the idea of replacing a meal with a drink at all i really don’t like.
The idea of that however i do think if you’re like for breakfast for example if you want to have a smoothie bowl or a thick smoothie for breakfast that’s absolutely fine as long as you’re getting enough like nutrition in there you’re getting enough calories to keep you going and also you’re enjoying it.
Like for me i would have um one scoop of optimum nutrition whey or plant-based protein i would have one cup of either oat milk or coconut milk i’ll then have a frozen banana in there so that’s a full banana and i’ll then sometimes have like some frozen berries as well depending on.
What flavor i want so i’ll have like um raspberries blueberries or strawberries frozen because then that makes it really nice and like you know frozen-y um or i was gonna say acai i also have frozen acai sometimes as well which gives it almost like a slight chocolatey flavor i love acai and it’s obviously like it’s.
A superfood it’s got all those health benefits in there and then on the top i’ll have like some um some nuts and sesame seeds uh chia seeds flax seeds and sometimes some berries so yeah and even like coconut flakes and stuff like that so i hope that answers that i.

Some of the friendships that have been made have been phenomenal already so yeah it’s very exciting and we’re going to be creating some challenges and the reason why i’m telling you this is because the body system isn’t open all the time it’s open for 24 hours and that started this morning.
