This Morning’s Circuit – And Why You Should AVOID Organic Eggs

Read time: 3 minutes. Workout time: 25-40 minutes.

If you’ve left your options open as to what sort of training you’ll be doing today – or (gasp!) are thinking you might even have a day off from the gym – then this circuit just might hit the spot. It’s nothing fancy but it will work every muscle in your body, get you sweating and pumped for the rest of the day, and the best part is it will only take you 25 minutes so long as you don’t faff around socialising or day-dreaming in between sets. I know, I know, not that you’d ever do that. Just saying.

Part One

  1. DB flat bench press – elbows angled 45 degrees down. 12-15 x 4-second reps. Be sure to keep your belly button drawn toward your spine – don’t be lazy just because you’re on a bench!
  2. DB one arm bent-over row, split stance. Keep it simple by using the same weights as exercise one, and just use the dumbell rack in front of your bench to lean on, same side foot as lifting arm forward. 12-15 x 4-second reps on each arm.
  3. Shoulder-height cable wood chops. I used a rope today, just for variety. 10-12 reps each side, 3 seconds per rep.

Repeat x 4, 10-30 seconds rest between rounds.

Part Two

  1. Barbell dead lifts, underhand grip (for variety). 10-12 x 5 second reps.
  2. Overhand wide-grip lat pulldowns. Retract with your shoulder-blades first. 10-12 x 4 second reps.
  3. 45 degree leg press. 10-12 x 4 second reps.
  4. Swissball jacknifes, feet only on ball. 10 x 3 second reps.

Repeat x 4, 10-30 seconds rest between rounds.

If you still have time to spare, grab that swiss ball again and do 3 sets of hamstring curls, 10 reps only, but only 10 seconds rest between sets.

Part Three

Leave the gym with a spring in your step and the smug knowledge that you did more work in less than 30 minutes than many social gym-goers manage in a week.

Today’s read: Why You Should Avoid Organic Eggs

Full article read time: 7-10 minutes

This article blew me away. I’ve never even considered the idea that organic store-bought eggs could be tainted by chlorine baths and the absorption of other toxic chemicals as part of the cleaning process, but apparently it’s standard practice. You don’t even really need to read the full article to know that this is definitely not a good thing.

So what to do?

Pretty simple. This sort of unacceptable food-handling is just another reason to support local produce and shop only with a reputable online delivery service, or at your local farmer’s market where you can personally inquire as to the handling of your food (or see for yourself that your eggs don’t look overly clean on the outside!)

If you have any inside knowledge on food handling/treatment please comment below. I can’t believe I never thought of something like this and often use to use the supermarket as an organic food fall-back, but definitely no longer!

Remember –

Life is Now. Press Play!

PS.

I’ve created a place. A revolution of sorts. A HUB OF BADASSERY.

A place for learning, training, strategy and getting sh*t done.

A place where women unite to act fast, think later, to do in a day what most do in a week, in a week what most do in a month, in a month what most do in a lifetime or not at all. It’s a place for driven, fast-thinking, creative and utterly utterly purpose-driven ‘do what it takes’ women entrepreneurs who know that in order to live the life they truly CRAVE they must be willing to press play NOW.

It’s my Rich Chick Mastermind, and right now I have re-opened the doors, just for a few days. You can come join us either month by month, or VIP your fine self and receive access (yes really!) to every course I’ve ever created. You’ll also receive thousands of dollars worth of bonuses, plus all my NEW live content either way. And to top it off? You’ll get to come meet all the other driven badasses who are out there changing the world. Falling in to who they always WERE,

and who they know they must be.

Come join us gorgeous. Say yes to the life you really want. Say yes to doing what it takes. Say yes to falling into YOU, and being damn proud of it. Say yes to no fucks given that it is ‘supposed’ to be such and such way. YOU KNOW HOW IT’S MEANT TO FEEL FOR YOU.

And you know that that is the way.

Come see what I made you,
