TRAINING ON HOLIDAY - I always start the day on holiday by burning as many calories as I can. I’m never really aiming to do anything other than get a good sweat on, release some endorphins to kick start the day and give myself some wriggle room to enjoy more food and drinks (I’m already planning ahead for my dinner at @qloungegocek 🥰) . . The gym here at @dresortgocek is fantastically well equipped so today I just did a little “playlist session” the goal here is to rotate between pieces cardio kit, changing every time the song changes on my playlist. I went between treadmill, skipping, heavy boxing bag, stationary bike, cross trainer a body weight round of squats, push ups and burpees (10 of each on rotation) Today I did 11 songs in 51 minutes. . . Push yourself on each bit of kit (anything from 2-4 times is a typical track length) and just rest as you transition between pieces of kit. *There is absolutely nothing scientific about this but it’s fun, keeps things varied and definitely stops cardio being boring! Give it a go! #dresortgocek #cardioworkout #cardio #intervals
