If anyone is even following I came back from America one month ago and had to put on over half a stone up to 13:8. I currently weigh around 13:5 and have lost inch and half off my waist. I have been hitting the gym 5 times a week and I started a county badminton course run by ex international coaches. Week 1 was 4 days straight totally 16 hours week 2 was tues and Thursday total 8 hours (4 each) and I have the same again next week. This week has been fab because after Thursday I went to gym for leg day fri, I did chest and arms and then killed my legs further sat but we did go for Indian then to a club dancing all night as a uni goodbye to one of our club members. Me and her decided to go for a little jog to burn off sat.....yeah.... I though okay cool 2-3k as that's my average and most iv ever run 13 months ago was 5k....anyways long story straight we ran for 1:40 and ended up getting to 9.4k! Which I'm silently over the moon with! Your talking to an ex 200m athlete haha so 9.4k is like a marathon to me.
I'm certain I have put loads of muscle mass on my legs as this badminton is super intense, for instance on the 4th hour on tues and Thursday of week 1 we did dancing to music in a dance class....what this ended up meaning was one hour of plyometric high intensity jump training with badminton footwork jump smashes, quick defense of all feet...was awful but amazing haha loved every minute of It.
Anyways I'm sure iv lost weight hence my waist reduced quite quick for one month but weight is still higher than I'd like but I'm certain it's how big my legs have grown! I now leg press 34kg more than I did 6 weeks ago and chest press 25kg more too. All in all im happy with my progress but still a way to go to get down to my 12 stone end goal....for now short term goal is to get 12:11 my pre America weight.
