Always good catching up with @Haydn Elliott  over Zoom.  Last time in person at F45 he killed me (prefer the drinks version).....excuse the bad picture that is him moving not me balancing my red wine 🤔

Let me share what I thought was the best part of the chat....we are both highly motivated people that believe life is there for the taking but we both spent time today asking “Are you ok?” And not taking “Yep” for the answer....

No one is Ok in our current environment and double checking with people and not just accepting the first response is more important than ever right now....So ask twice....admit your not OK and check again....it may make all the difference!

We are doing it again next Wednesday evening 7:30pm UK time.....if you want to join for a laugh and a chat hit me up.....only rule.....drink in hand!

ARE YOU OK?

Always a pleasure @Scott Coey See you next week!

💥 MY WEEKLY ROUND UP 💥


This has been a character building week. It was one of those weeks that I had to step up and face a few fears. I got it done and now it is behind me and I’m stronger for it. I think to be honest I needed it. I felt a terrible monotony over the weekend. The lockdown life really got to me. Not being able to do the little things and have any spontaneity started to take it’s toll.  

Workout of the Week

Monday’s workout was an absolute beauty. 6 x 6 minute workouts. 2 minutes in between each. 46 minutes in total. I am extremely fortunate to have access to a lot of gym equipment so any questions on how to adapt any of these please just reach out!

Workout 1 

EMOM - 6 x Pull ups + 6 x Burpee to bar

Workout 2

AMRAP - 10 x Box jumps + 20 x Butterfly SU’s 

Workout 3

EMOM - 6 x Deadlifts @75% 1RM + 6 Heavy ball to shoulder 

Workout 4 

60 Cals on the rower

Remaining time : Max Press ups (every 5 press ups do 1 x Burpee over rower)

Workout 5

This was one of the hardest workouts I’ve done in a while - TOUGH.

E2MOM - 250m Row metres + 8 x Devil Press (22.5Kg x 2)

Workout 6

AMRAP - 4 x DB Hang Clean 4 x DB Front Squat 4 x DB Thruster


Quote of the Week (Book, Person or Podcast)

Not very inspirational but something that really hit home to me….😂😂

“You know they might be the one for you when you are content with the amount “bad stuff” you have done up to this point.” - A close friend and advisor.


Thought of the Week (Statement or Question)

It is important to have an element of stress in your life. Being uncomfortable forces you to react and grow as an individual. There is a difference though between a relentless overwhelming stress and ‘Eustress’, the type of stress that can motivate and boost creativity.


What is my main focus next week?

To take a step back focus on nutrition, sleep and learning. I want to work on some long term big picture projects for the business. I’ve had a four week period of getting stuck into the day to day, which I love but need to remain focused on the long term vision.


What was this weeks BIGGEST failure?

Sleep. I just can’t get my sleep pattern right. 


What was this weeks BIGGEST success?

Staying composed, preparing well and executing to the top of my ability when it mattered most. 


One more week done. Every week is one step closer to life returning to some form of normality.


Huge love,


Haydn

I often tell myself the same thing about stress. You need a certain amount in your life in order to grow, but you don't want so much it sends you over the edge. It's a balance between some and not too much; a balance that a happy and successfull life lies between

💥 MY WEEKLY ROUND UP 💥

Another really powerful week. At the moment I am feeling extremely fulfilled. Our community at the gym has been the focus of my attention and that reminded me of something. When you are being driven by something bigger that yourself your internal battles don't seem as monumental.

Workout of the Week

In all honesty when I go back to think about this workout I actually hated every second. It was painful and exhausting. However I got through it and to be honest that was a big moment in my week. It made everything else seem easier. 

20 reps down 1 rep of both exercises:

- Barbell Forward Lunge @42.5kg

- DB Snatch @25

E5MOM - 12 Burpees

I was honestly delighted to see the back of this one. Did I fly through it? No. Did I enjoy it? Absolutely not. Am I tougher for the experience. Yes.

Thought of the Week (Statement or Question)

In order to manage people effectively you absolutely need to be in a sound head space yourself. If you do not have clarity in your own life how do you expect to clearly lead other people?


What is my main focus next week?

A few life changing meetings. Being prepared and bringing my best energy to them.


What was this week's BIGGEST failure?

Not having the honest desire to learn how to double under (this has been a huge hit to my athletic ego for a while now).


What was this week's BIGGEST success?

Communicating effectively in several difficult situations/conversations. Previously these situations would have consumed my mental focus but the more difficult conversations you have the easier they seem to come. Sounds a bit like training? Get the reps in!


Have a wonderful weekend everybody!
