GetFit Challenge Diary – Week 3

So, week 3 is done and dusted! I have to admit, it was a tough one. Saturday was by far the most challenging workout I’ve had in a long time. We did a ladder session, split into both upper body for 30 mins then lower body. Sounds simple doesn’t it? Well technically it is, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy!

The basic premise is to conduct a large number of repetitions over 5 exercises, at your own pace. Starting with 10 reps, for each, then moving on to 9 reps, then 8 etc. The first five levels are smooth going, but then it gets quite hectic! Still, what an amazing workout!

Overall I can already see the difference in my body shape as well as my ability to run up the stairs to my apartment! Weight wise, I have dropped 2 kg’s and I am looking forward to my next weigh in and fitness test at the 6 week mark.

Don’t forget that you can join in for the upcoming 8 week challenge! I highly recommend it! Each Challenge runs for a 8 week period, during which time, participants attend a 1 hour group training sessiononce, twice or three times per week. The training sessions are a combination of cardio and weight training exercises aimed at increasing fitness levels and improving muscle strength and tone.
