Week 6 has definitely kicked up a notch in the intensity department – each of Kayla’s resistance training this week have left me sore, super sweaty, and shaking from the intensity – I LOVE IT!
After seeing some amazing BBG girl’s post their workout videos on Insta, I’ve realised I’ve been doing knee ups and steps up wrong this whole time!
Kayla does explain how to do them in the guides, but I must have read the wrong – I’ve been alternating sides for the total amount of reps, rather than the correct method of doing all the reps on one side, and switching to the next.
For example; if your circuit has x30) knee ups (15 each side), do ALL of your left side before swapping to your right. I did them the correct way during my final resistance workout for Week 6, which was legs and cardio, and my legs hurt SO bad haha!
I’m glad I’ve finally figured out the correct way to do them; I can see why Kayla instructs them this way, instead of alternating.
Even though I’ve been doing it wrong the last 6 weeks, I know it was still of benefit – I’ll just do them the right way from now on! My watch below shows my warm up and cool down time; ~300 calories in 28 minutes is alright by me! ;)
