Tonight's Personal Training - hell on earth

It was the first of my two back to back PT sessions tonight. Lets just get it over with shall we? Tonight, I was absolutely useless. This is the gruelling schedule he put me through this evening :

  • Stair master - double steps at steady and fast pace intervals - 3 sets
  • 20 lunges on the spot - 3 sets
  • 20 kettle bell swings - 3 sets
  • 15 squat and box jumps - 3 sets
  • 10 burpees with press ups - 3 sets
  • 3 min run on treadmill
  • 30 squats with kettle bell - 3 sets
  • Box jumps - alternating - 3 x 45 seconds continuous
  • Cross trainer intervals - 3 sets
  • 20 kettle bell swings - 3 sets
  • 20 leg raise abs - 3 sets
  • 30 leg cross abs - 3 sets
I struggled tonight, really really struggled. After the 3 gruelling bouts on the stair master, and the lunges in between, to say that the muscles in my behind were painful and burning would be the understatement of the century. 

After the hellish stair master, it hurt doing anything at all. I had tears in my eyes at one point. My PT even took pity on me - something he never does. He put me on the treadmill for a couple of minutes to run it off. It worked, to a point. I could still feel it, but it was less severe and I was able to carry on. 

It just absolutely exhausted me tonight. Muscle burn, stitch, and general fatigue. This was a real tough one. The worst part? I've got to do it all again tomorrow night!! Arghhhhh!!!!
