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.

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!

Should I go on? I could, but I think you get the picture.

You’re the one who is not only not like the other PEOPLE, you’re also not like the other entrepreneurs.

They, they actually think they’re different; non-conformists?! Don’t make me laugh. You and I both see it as it is:

They just wanna be told how to build a pretty little website and a pretty little social media page or three and a pretty little online product or course and get their pretty little headshots and do a pretty little pre-scripted dance all over the internet so that other equally pretty fucking bland and boring and same same-y peoples pay them money,

And they can all sit in a pretty little womans circle together patting each other linking elbows and stroking each others hair and singing Kumbaya as the sun sets over another day of sinking ever deeper into the unremarkableness that is their lives.

They are the ones who are not only willing to jump through hoops, they also want to build more hoops for other people; they want to perpetuate the hoop jumping life and their whole sales pitch is basically some version of “I will help you to have a better and shinier hoop, come see!”

lolol

BUT REALLY.

Meanwhile, you –

You’ve tried the hoop-jumping life, maybe more than what you care to admit. And, whilst you’ve nothing against sitting around with other ladeez and stroking each others hair, you and your girls; the real ones?

You don’t exactly fit in in the typical woman’s circle.

You don’t feel at home with the pretty-preneurs, not even on the internet let alone in real life.

You don’t actually GIVE a fuck about having all your shit perfect,

Polished,

And just so –

And the idea of having sales and marketing and content processes which you have to systematically pre-plan and then work through and endlessly join dots with?

Makes you want to hurl.

Sure –

You’ve bought in at times to do the idea that maybe you DO gotta do it as they say.

An automated webinar, perhaps?? Facebook ads which carefully and smartly tell the world who you are and how you can help? A sales plan proven and tested by the greats. The gradual sinking slow decline of your soul, your joy, your dreams, and even your pussy as everything within you that once knew she could HAVE IT ALL AND DO LIFE HER WAY SLOWLY DRIES,

WITHERS TO NOTHING,

AND DIES?

Sure –

Why not

And look.

It’s not that any of these things are bad or wrong. Maybe right now you’ve got to a certain point by playing by the rules … kind of. Following what ‘logic’ suggests you do. Breaking free here and there with wild little jaunts into over the top madness, noticing how THAT lights you up and also how people respond to it … but ultimately continuing to go back to trying to find the right fucking system to get you to where you want to go,

Because this thing of trying to just be you interspersed with trying to get it all right and make it work, well –

It’s God damn tiring –

But also, in the end, if we’re going to be black and white about it, it hasn’t got you to where you want to be!!

You KNOW you should be making SO much more money.

NOW.

With consistency, and yeah, while of course of COURSE you’re down for doing the work, you also feel like it SHOULD be a lot easier, more flow

And you know that you know that you know that you’ve still not let out the most unrestrained and fully expressed side of you!

– The you they can’t look away from
– The you they are MAGNETIZED by
– The you who automatically commands a huge freakin’ following, and sales to match it

You know who I’m talking about –

THE MILLIONAIRE REBEL YOU!

Starting January 18th!

>>> https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/rebelmillionaire/

The revolutionary fucking leader who tears SHREDS off of normal every damn day before the rest of the world has barely sipped its coffee!

Who is FULLY unleashed in what she says, how she shows up, how she does business, how she does life.

Who does not give a fuck about following rules! Or sales systems! Or strategies! Who can and will do what works for HER, and if it happens to resemble other ways people build an audience and make a fuckload of money online, cool, and if not, so what! That is not the point! The point is –

She knows what works for her.
She backs herself unapologetically.
She DOES it.

And she gets the damn results. The BIG results. The CONSISTENT results. The FUCK yes results, not just with money but with the VIBERY of it all.

Imagine …

Waking up every day and KNOWING you have crushed the day before it already begun because THAT IS WHO YOU ARE AND HOW YOU ROLL!

* Your shit sells (at any and all price point)
* Your creativity and inner ideas machine flows endlessly (you always know what to put out into the world and that when you speak people PAUSE EVERYTHING AND LISTEN, whether it is with free content and shenaniganery or with your paid stuff)
* You don’t even have to think about low end or high end or how to take people through a value ladder or some such bullshit, the value ladder is YOU CONTINUING TO BE YOU, and the more that you DO you the more people just take themselves through whatever it is you’re offering!
* It is easy, natural, fun, and OBVIOUS how to build your automated income, funnels, the ‘cash machine’ side of your business.
* In fact the whole damn thing feels fun and easy and like you’re just being you (the full on you, the too much you, the rebel you, the fuck all of ’em THIS IS WHAT I STAND FOR AND NOW I’M GONNA TELL YOU you!),
* and at the same time you have the DEEPLY grounded and certain knowledge that the way you’re doing it, hot mess and chaos vibes and all, is WORKING. PS – the reason you feel certain of this is because your bank balance and soulmate audience and their feedback reflects it, not bc your spirit guides told you it’s coming

All of this is ALREADY available to you.

It is who you are and what you were born for.

You did not come here for normal!

You are one of the truly crazy ones, who has something inside of her that will leave the world BREATHLESS –
and allow her to make millions and impact millions –

BUT NOT IF SHE CONTINUES TO DO BUSINESS AND LIFE BY TRYING TO SOMEHOW BE A NON-CONFORMIST WHO CONTINUALLY CAVES AND CONFORMS.

For this to work,

REALLY work, like next next NEXT level $ and life flow work,
you’re going to need to FULLY turn your back on the idea that your breakthrough is waiting on the other side of you adjusting, filtering, compromising, playing the game the way the other entrepreneurs are playing it, or worrying about what the fuck your social media looks like!

What you’re going to need to do is simple:

FLICK THE DAMN REBEL MILLIONAIRE SWITCH BABY.

All in on madness.
All in on crazy.
All in on chaos.
All in on the TRUE epic awesome ridiculousness and too much-ness of YOU.

REBEL MILLIONAIRE

Starting January 18th!

For those who were born to run the damn thing,

To turn the world on its head and dance on top of it,

And who are ready to do just that.
