The Skins Challenge, Another Look At My Exercise Journal, And A $250 Giveaway!

If you’re reading this and you workout regularly I’d be very curious to know if you’ve ever tried compression gear. I’m guessing you probably have, since the feedback I’ve had since starting my Skins challenge is mostly:

a) people think Skins and compression gear in general (there are other great brands as well of course) is AWESOME and

b) I seem to be the only gym or training junkie out there who has never tried them!

Well, I can honestly say after 3 weeks of wearing my new Skins 3/4 tights nearly 24 hours a day (and actually 24 hours a day on a few recent occasions), that I am a convert with a capital ‘C’! I am definitely going to test out some other brands before I confess an undying love affair with Skins, but the compression wear idea? So loving it! And so never thought I would be! If you’ve never tried them – especially for running (wow, by the way), then I highly recommend it.

this is how i train: skins-style

Mon April 4: Backyard kettlebell workout. Today is Day 1 wearing my Skins on the Skins challenge. Not sure if it was the tights or the weekend leg-rest, but I managed 300 x 24kg swings in 21 minutes when I usually do 240 in 19-20 minutes. Whoo! I also did 2x 20 minute walks this morning, to and from playgroup. I don’t really count walking as training 🙂 … but it is a nice bonus!

Monday review: I’m used to training in shorts only* … I overheat really quickly when I’m training and it takes a pretty damn freezing day for me to wear long pants! Fortunately for me the sun went in right as I started my workout, and I really smasghed through. I was a sweaty mess at the end, so much so that I couldn’t even face real food for an hour and just had a shake. Very unlike me! Not sure if it was the Skins or the weekend rest from legs but I really noticed how much I was squeezing my gluts today; way more than normal.

Tuesday April 5; workout 1: 20 minutes of tready sprints this morning. Thought I’d hate running in long pants but actually liked feeling very snug and secure. Not that (I hope!) I usually bounce around too much anyway though! Workout 2: 45-minute circuit weights workout at Result Based Training. Advanced GBC style.

Tuesday review; written first thing in am: back is absolutely SCREWED this morning; but that’s because I spent 3 hours in heels last night! I gave my 90-minute Lean Living presentation at R.B.T, and stupidly ran around (even vacuuming my office) before it in heels. So basically that is distracting me from any possible comments about my leg fatigue! I’ll be doing sprints later today, as well as some circuit training, so I’m sure I’ll have better feedback at that point!

Wed April 6: 50-minute pure Poliquin GBC workout, highlights being duck leg press, 4021 x 15-20 reps (OUCH!) and one of my faves, L-lateral raises. Plus lots more, including some vein-popping hammer curls. Ran out of time for D1 and D2, so will go back later and finish it off with a bonus 15 minutes (which I forgot; by the way :()

Wednesday review: the Skins thing … to be completely honest I set out on this little challenge thinking it will just be kinda fun to document my training for a few weeks, but not really expecting to notice anything different in terms of recovery. After all, how much of a difference can these supposed wonder-pants make in just a few days or even a week? Well I’m not even quite half-way through the training week, so I guess it’s still too early to say … but I have to admit I’m sort of starting to love these pants. Now I haven’t tried other brands, so I can’t comment on Skins compared to whatever else, but as I mentioned this is my first time wearing compression gear and I really think it’s making a difference. I don’t know if it’s because the pants are so tight or because they’re actually doing something, but I’m definitely not as aware of leg fatigue as what I would normally be!

Thursday April 7: A very simple and to-the-point kettlebell workout: 300 reps in just over 20 minutes 🙂 Sweaty fun!

Friday April 8: I hit the gym for a little made-up-on-the-spot German Volume Training. I had left myself only 30 minutes to train before having to jet off to a seminar, so I smashed out 10 sets of 10 reps of wide grip deads superset with BB military press. Basically zero rest time. This left me so pumped that I hit the treadmill for some tabata-style sprints. I was on a roll so I kept it going until I got to 10 minutes – by which time I’d completely used up my showering and eating time!

Friday and Saturday review: I really gave those tights a run for their money over these two days as I ended up wearing them for 12 hours a day at the conference. Sitting around for hours on end was no fun for my back and hips, but I do have to say that despite all the heavy duty training getting ready for my photo shoot last Tuesday I really think my legs are less fatigued than normal. This is especially note-worthy considering the use of compression gear has coincided with me returning to sprints for the first time since giving birth.

the challenge extended – plus a $250 giveaway!

I still haven’t slept in compression gear yet. I’m building up to doing some super-high-speed sprints next week, so I think I’ll save it for then. I’ll let you guys know how I go! I’m also going to test out some other brands of compression gear, just to keep things fair, and I’d also like to try some upper body compression gear. One thing I do really like about Skins is the style; they actually look okay, if not good! I have to admit I was worried about looking terrible but they’re pretty fashion-friendly!

If you’ve tried compression gear and haven’t already let me know your thoughts on Facebook then make sure you drop a comment in the box below!

Expansion.

10 Days of Live Soul Transmissions, to Help You Find and Follow the Messages Within

Day 1) Trust

Day 2) Certainty

Day 3) Self-Belief

Day 4) Empire Creation

Day 5) Your Deepest Message

Day 6) Following Soul Guidance in All Areas

Day 7) Faith vs Fear

Day 8) Accessing Flow, and Superflow

Day 9) Expanding Time

Day 10) Expanding Money

Every day will be a LIVE soul led transmission.

This will take place on Facebook video, held at a variety of times in order to account for varying time zones, and scheduled only once we have begun. Our daily soul transmissions will be guided from MY higher self and directed from and for YOURS, to help you find and FOLLOW the messages within. The messages of your spirit, your consciousness, of the who you’ve always been and yet have managed quite well to cover up a lot of the time.

This is about stripping away –

And getting back to the CORE.

We’ll dive day by day into the above mentioned areas –

And you’ll receive all content and bonuses to keep for life.

There will be daily spirit prompts which you’ll receive after each training.

And plenty of time opportunity connect with me throughout, receive transmissions direct to YOUR questions, and absorb more even than what comes through on the trainings, via the energy we’ll create in this collective!

It’s very rare for me to know in advance exactly what is coming through day to day.

I certainly don’t have the details of each day’s content. But I know that these areas have been on my heart to talk about, in particular around belief, around certainty, around living from FAITH.

We know that exactly what is meant to come through for you WILL, and then some. And that if you intend and allow for it to, it will change, most likely before we even begin, due to your energetic commitment, the direction of your LIFE!

Meaning: direct it back to absolute soul alignment.

*** NEVER Seen Before Bonus! ***

As part of this, I’ve been guided to offer a NEVER before seen bonus … one I feel super vulnerable about sharing!

It’s the exact journaling I did to allow the download of THIS offer through. How I allowed the idea to bubble up. You’ll see my doubt, uncertainty, annoyance. You’ll see what I discarded. How I went through the layers. And how I KNEW, this was the one.

I’ll ALSO add in copies (screenshots) of my conversation with my COO Ash, where I was talking through the idea and allowing it to come to life.

I want to show you the exact Idea to Launch process!

This bonus alone is EASILY worth the cost of this program, particularly when you hear the mindset side of it, in terms of STAYING THE COURSE and refusing to back away from my self until the idea showed up!

I refuse not to create!!

AND, when you register for EXPANSION today (and how could you not?!) you’ll also receive early access to the Pre-Work. This is ALSO never seen before, and brand new just for you – and it’s a guided meditation on remembrance, to help you connect back to deepest self and the most certain truth of your destiny, before we even begin.

Perfect priming, for when we expand RAPIDLY into all that is coming through in this work!

Of course I could now go on and on here, about what I could or should have charged for this, and what it’s actually going to be …

Or about all my accomplishments on line and off, with money, with purpose, with passion, with flow …

I think you know all this anyway. Even if you just me! Your soul feels what matters. And that’s ALL that matters.

But I will say this:

You’ve always known it’s supposed to be about ALL that is inside of you. That it’s meant to COME from a place of purpose, passion, and SUPER super flow. And that if you just.freaking.trusted, and showed up FULLY from that place, you’d be living in a different reality already.

THE ONE INSIDE OF YOU.

If that’s true for you right now, then LET’S GO CREATE THAT REALITY.

Right now
