“Wishes are worthless unless we wake up & work at them.”

Hope this edition of the Fitness & Conditioning Newsletter Courtesy of S.P.A.R.K.S Conditioning finds you so very well.

This is a concept that has been very obvious in my life over the last few weeks. Many times we wish, myself most certainly included, for an outcome & wish for it to come quickly but the reality is that these desires & goals we have take time to achieve – if they didn’t they wouldn’t be very effective goals now would they?!

Each day we’ve got to take steps towards creating the habits needed to make our wishes and dreams a reality. Want the body you desire & deserve? Well put down that (insert junk food name here), put away whatever excuse you have used or are about to use (ie not enough time, energy, motivation etc…) and get to building that wish of yours step by step.

Here’s a workout to try. Complete it every other day for the rest of the week, starting today! Give yourself the ability to succeed.

You’ll need to set a timer to beep every 30seconds.
Complete as many reps of each exercise as you can in 30 seconds. At the end of round one write down all your numbers. Rest 90 seconds & repeat the same circuit.
Complete 2-8 rounds.
How’d you do?!
Good. Now aim to beat those numbers (each round & total) next workout… Maybe even add a set?!
Note: Beginners start with the low rep range while you advanced people should start at 4 or 5 sets.
Let’s go!

1. Push ups
2. Burpee’s
3. Crunches (squeeze on each rep, don’t just roll!)
4. Jump squats (or squats in a pain free range of motion).
5. 30second abdominal plank (did you make it?!)
90 seconds. Grab a sip, record your numbers and wait for that beep to get going again!

Enjoy and good luck on your journey.
