Circuit Workouts, Upper Body

Shoulder Pump Workout

Although it may seem like it, my workouts do not solely consist of circuit and HIIT workouts. I also lift weights about 3 to 4 days a week where I incorporate free weights, olympic lifts, land mines, kettle bells, and the cable machines once in a while. For this shoulder workout you need some sort of weights – dumbbells, a plate, and a kettle bell if you have one. It consists of four exercises, which you will perform one after the other with a 1-2 minute break in between each exercise. Then repeat the entire set of exercises two more times for a total of three rounds. By the end of this workout, your shoulders should be burning!

Kale, Avocado, Beets & Brussel Sprout Salad

Kale, Avocado, Beets & Brussel Sprout Salad

In an attempt to try new foods, I decided to purchase a giant bag of brussel sprouts from Costco. I thought it was a fantastic idea at the time, and to be honest, it really was! The bag was like $5 and lasted me two weeks, not even kidding. I didn’t even get sick of brussel sprouts like I thought I might. I also found out that you can eat brussel sprouts raw, which is what I did for one of my meals. And it is SO good So I added it into a salad!

How To Stay Some-What Healthy at a Music Festival

How To Stay Some-What Healthy at a Music Festival

I have never been to a music festival before, nor have I ever really wanted to since I know there is camping involved a lot of the time. But when the opportunity to go to Ultra Miami came up, there was no way I could say no. This past weekend was insane – so much dancing, sun, beaches, people, and of course, great music. But one of the things that really concerned me was how I would be able to eat and drink relatively healthy while I was there. I didn’t train hard and eat clean every day to lose it all in 5 days! So here are some of my tips for eating right at a music festival (or any trip in America for that matter).

If you’re like me and aren’t a fan of the whole ‘meal prep’ phenomenon, then you find ways to bring protein and carbs into your meals without having to eat fish/chicken and vegetables every single day. One of my new favourite things to buy are lentils! Lentils are high in protein, iron, fibre, and are a buck a can at the grocery store. I also had a can of chickpeas in the cupboard, so I decided to make a curry with both these items! It takes a bit more work than my usual recipes, but it made a giant vat of curry, good enough for 5 meals at least. I definitely put away some in the freezer for next time :)

How Drinking Negatively Affects Your Beach Body

The picture on the left is when I was in 3rd year university living in Spain. The picture on the right is from last week. The main difference between me in third year and me right now is the type of food I ate, and the amount of alcohol I drank every week. In university I used to drink a good two to three times a week in the off season of rugby. Even during the rugby season I still drank quite a lot. When I moved to Spain, I drank more wine than water, and had a delicious diet of paella, bread, chips, and potatoes and combined every meal with mayonnaise. I have no regrets.

Do-At-Home Chair Workout

This workout can be done on a chair at home, or on a bench at the park, or at the gym. Anywhere where you can get your hands on something sturdy and firm. There are four rounds to this workout, with each exercise being done for 15 reps. I like to do this workout after a run because its not very cardio intensive, and I prefer to get my heart rate up for every workout I do! If you are a beginner I would suggest just doing the workout, but if you’re looking for something a bit more advanced then I suggest going for a run first!

Pumpkin Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

Pumpkin Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars

Someone introduced this recipe to me a year or so ago, and they are truly one of the most delicious bars i’ve ever made. I’m in LOVE with them. And they’re so easy (as are all my recipes, right??) You can add whatever additional ingredients you want in them, and can be as flexible as possible. I usually add chocolate chips, pumpkin seeds, almonds, sesame seeds, and whatever else takes my fancy and is lying around. They’re vegan and gluten free (not that that made a difference to me at all, but I just realized it)
