The Jessica Ennis six-pack ambition: The Final Phase (pictures so far!).

So we’re now into the final part of the training. I can see the end and I’m so happy with what has been achieved so far.

I’m not 100% certain how much weight I’ve lost but hopefully these pictures can show you the difference in how I feel:

The first week.

It’s Friday afternoon and there is only one more early morning training session left for this week!

As I type this I am really aware of the muscles around my shoulder blades- they are throbbing like mad! I also have a large bruise on my right knee but I don’t remember knocking it.

Motivation!!

Ate a banana on the way and managed to melt some of it to my lap as I drove. Continue reading “The first day of the ‘Athletic Body’ Challege”

The day before it begins… My ‘Athletic Body’ Journey

It’s Sunday afternoon and I’m still trying to mentally prepare myself for the next 8 weeks of my life.

Tomorrow at 6AM (YES IN THE MORNING) I will start Tim’s Jasperfield’s Extreme Burntime. I have been informed that a six pack is inevitable.

So for the past two weeks I have been doing Jasperfield performance training that takes place 4 times a week on Adur Rec. I’ve lost 7lbs already and I have felt muscles I didn’t know were there. It also did this to my shoes:
