Personal training: Helping a Friend Day 13


Today we decided to do interval training on the treadmill today to see how well he does with it, and to challenge is mind and body. After the workout, I could tell he was worn out, he had difficulties with it, but we will continue to work on it. Although he forgot my instructions and ended up doing more than what I asked for, so I have to take that into account as well. Tomorrow we will be doing the same workout, this time I hope he pays better attention. Since today was botched, tomorrow we will do a “redo” of the exact workout. He continues to do well with the planks, says the 3rd set is the hardest. Just so others know, I perform all these workouts with him while monitoring him, I usually come in earlier by a hour, do my workout, he comes in and I spend another hour working out with him. A total of 2 hours at the gym in the morning, and you bet I feel the soreness afterwards, LOL.


Dynamic stretching:

  • Leg swings (10 reps each leg)
  • Walking knee to chest
  • buttkicks
Workout session:
  • Treadmill: 8 minutes, 4.0 speed, 3.0 incline
  • treadmill:  8 minutes, 4.2 speed, no incline
  • Treadmill: 8 minutes, 4.0 speed, 3.0 incline
  • Treadmill: 8 minutes, 4.2 speed, no incline
  • Treadmill: 8 minutes, 4.0 speed, 3.0 incline
Core Exercise:
  • Planks- 3 sets of 1:14
Cool down:
  • Walk 2 laps inside the gym
We didn’t have time for the static stretching because he has other obligations when he leaves on Monday’s but he turned in his paperwork to show his eating habits, and sleep regimen. I haven’t yet looked at them, but I will soon today or this week at some point. I want to go over with him a plan so he gets on track with his nutrition, but that will have to wait for now. 
Also, the interview that I have set for Saturday, I will have to post-pone because I have an urgent situation for Saturday, so forgive me, but I will reschedule it and have it done hopefully next weekend sometime, I will keep everyone up to date. 
Today is #MotivationMonday, so be looking forward to my Youtube video and motivational post today! 
Your fitness blogger,

Hello! I have just recently graduated with my exercise science degree May 2016, yay! I am more than happy; and decided that since my passion is for fitness/health, I would write about it and share my journey with others because in my opinion health is everything (both mental and physical). I am 24 years old, and reside in the states. I enjoy being active anyway possible and want to get my cert in personal trainer and also be a wellness coach. I love to eat and don't believe in eliminating, but rather moderation. I hope that my blog post will inspire, motivate and encourage you all to want to be the healthiest person you can be! It all begins with "I can" and "I will" :) -Shay-lon P.S feel free to follow me on social media and or email me, l don't mind answering questions or simply networking. Would love to hear from you all.
