Before I get ‘heavy’ today, I just want to say a

massive well done to my lunchtime girls for their

successful weigh and measure on Friday


They’re losing inches and pounds in such a short

space of time, it’s making me feel really good

about the programme and proving that 30 min a

day can, a few times a week can really make the



If you are interested in a two week free trial, email

me back and I’ll set it up for you


Also, I’m changing the website just now, it should

be finished this week, so if you venture on there it

will look a bit disjointed and the links aren’t all

working yet…


Ok, so you need to go heavy


I’ve been cracking down on the ‘not so new girls’

at the studio recently to put the weight up on the

barbells and kettlebells


They think I’m being mean to them but the weight

has to go up – if you stay on the same weight,

you’re not getting stronger and you stop getting

the results that you are looking for


Yes it’s hard but only for a few sessions and then

it gets easier as you get stronger but here are

some tricks you can use until you’re strong

enough to handle the new weight full time


Go heavy and do less reps or sets

I would rather you chose the heavier weight and

did less, then build the reps and sets back up

again over the next month or two


Take your time 

If you’re working with a heavier weight, it will

require more effort so take your time and add

plenty of rest in to recover. You are not going

to left heavier in the same time as lighter

just yet


Use a heavy and light combo

Switch between the heavy weight for one set

and the light weight for one set. Reduce the

light weight until you are using the heavy

weight full time


Get your mind set right

If you’re thinking ‘that’s too heavy’ or ‘I

can’t lift that’ then your brain has already

defeated your muscles. Instead approach

that weight like you will conquer it, no matter

what and you will lift!


If you really want to go heavier and need some

support, come and see me, I’ll help you 🙂


Email be back for a two week trial




p.s the new website might be a surprise, I’ve

gone with pink. I’ll let you know when it’s

ready for review xx
