Don´t stay in your comfort zone

Last weekend I went to the UK for some me time. Of course there was no way I could stay away from the gym 😉 Luckily my friend over there is a big gym fan too. He pushed me so hard:-) It was great!! I was completely wrecked haha. Not only did I learn some new things but most of all I realized that this last year I have been training within my personal comfort zone. I have honestly thought that I am training like a beast and can´t do more when in reality I CAN DO SO MUCH MORE. It´s funny how we can block ourselves mentally thinking we can´t do something. This weekend I was pushed out of that comfort zone and gained new confidence and motivation. I have now been back home for 3 days and every morning this week, I have upped the weights on every single exercise! How about that??!!

So my tip for this week is to get someone to push you out of your normal routine and try some new exercises and give you the balls to put more weights on. It´s not only good for the muscles but more than anything for our head!! Feels awesome 🙂

Below is my Sunday back routine that I can still feel today! And another video showing a different way training those important hamstrings!

 

 

 

 

Positivity check

Happy Saturday 😉 Maybe an odd subject but who cares right? Fact is,  I often get asked how I can be so happy all the time. So without being over enthusiastic I am going tell you a few of my tricks! Most importantly, good sleep! If you are tired, everything is shit. Then I have realized that if you go to bed with a good thought, you usually wake up happy and vice versa. The power of your own thoughts are so strong. I bet that all of you can get really sad in just an instance if you focus on something sad. So train yourself to focus on happy things. So how do you do that?  I play, like, a little game with myself: theto-see-the-best -in-each-situation” game.  My “game” can be to try to pick out as many positive things in a situation as I can think of. It is just like a private little mind game with myself lol. In the beginning it was quite difficult and I had to remind myself, but as you get used to it, all of a sudden it just becomes a natural reaction. Give it a try and enjoy the best of each day 🙂img_9268img_9407
