THE LIFESTYLE CHRONICLE: MY GYM ROUTINE

at the gym


For some, the idea of going to the gym scares them, afterall it is a room full of sweaty people all turning various shades of purple and red, putting their bodies through its paces.

When I found out last year that my university offered free gym membership at a fitness centre not far away I was quite excited.

Gym membership fee's can be crazily expensive and as a student there is no way I would have been able to afford the monthly outgoing.

As some of you may know I went through a particually rough time in my first year of university due to the living arrangements that I was thrown in to.
For me, the gym was a little safe place for me to go and work off all of my anger and upset - nevermind a refuge away from the foul flat that I lived in.

Within the year I managed to up my physical health and I was quite pleased with the results.

In today's post I am going to talk through what I do at the gym and ofcourse I have to add a fashion element...What I wear!

I start by working in the weights area using the seated row and chest press for my arms and the leg curl and leg extender on my legs, if I am feeling particually gym happy I will use both the adductor and abductor for my thighs.

I then head over to the free weights to do some arm excersises.

Next I move onto cardio, which is my favourite as I feel that I get the most out of it.

I spend 30 minutes on the stepper.
I love the stepper as it not only sorts out my wobbly legs out, but it works me hard but less brutally than some of the other machines.

Afterwards I take a trip over to the cross trainer and finally to the tredmill where I run for 40 minutes.

My favourite gym T-shirt is by Brat and Suziewhich is available online on ASOS.



They print some really cute animal T-shirts, mine has a sweet elephant with rollerskates on.
I just pair it with leggings and ofcourse my trainers.

To help my muscles repair after a workout session I drink Maxitone.*



The variant I have is the Definity Protein Plus Toning System in Raspberry Ripple flavour.

  1. I love the gym too, but sometimes I feel like I get stuck in a rut on what to do.
