The one with my current workout schedule and the glories of BBG

My current workout schedule is rocking my world. I feel like it is complementing itself in the best way if that makes sense?


Basically as you guys know I am following the Kayla Itsines BBG workout plan, but I still get to do my own thing within that which is the BEST. To try a free week of her program (no strings attached, this is just how I got started) go here and thank me later 😉 For those unfamiliar with the BBG program, LISS stands for Low Intensity Steady State cardio… which obviously for me is ALL about the running.


Monday = BBG Leg day.

Tuesday = LISS – easy 35 minutes ish (my legs are usually DESTROYED after Monday Leg day).

Wednesday = BBG arm day.

Thursday = LISS – long run.

Friday =  BBG Ab day.

Saturday = LISS + HIIT. 35 minute run and 15 minutes of HIIT hill sprints (30 seconds on thirty seconds off). Oh the burn.

Sunday = rest.


(Those post-hike/post workout feels).

I love changing up my runs on each LISS day so I still feel like I am getting a range of different runs in. And the awesome part? BBG makes each run feel SO much easier because I am getting lots of lovely quality high intensity strength training in. Yay (but ouchie) but YAY! Finally, I also sprinkle yoga in regularly throughout the week but I do that completely depending on how I feel and not on a schedule cos that just works for me 🙂

And this is unrelated but please admire my cutest healthy snack ever.



What is your current workout schedule? 

What healthy snack did you eat today?

Do you have a set rest day? – I like taking Sunday as my rest day but full disclosure have taken several a Tuesday as a rest day as well (and then had to reshuffle the workouts) because Monday Leg day KILLS me every time.

Which body part do you like to work out the most and which do you like the least? – I love working out arms because I feel like they immediately look more toned 🙂 (specifically triceps). And I have a major love/hate (probably more hate 😉 ) situation with legs cos it just burns sooooo much.

  1. I really want to get BBG! Sounds amazing and I know I need to work on my overall fitness, especially core and all those niggly little muscles you don’t notice!


    • OMG DO IT!!!!! Seriously I am obsessed, it’s sooo effective and a big challenge but just amazing especially for us runners! It targets sooo many muscles and overall fitness in the best way! It’s totally worth it especially cos you can just buy the e-book and then you have it for life. Totally recommend the free week trial to start with if you’re not sure though! 🙂 Let me know if you give it a try!
