Find out about 1 Rep Max

A 1 rep max is the most weight you can lift once for any exercise. Knowing your 1 rep max is important as it's used to find out how much weight to use in other rep ranges. Even if you don't lift heavy on a regular basis, knowing you 1 rep max is still important.

Red Pepper Sauce

I love roasted red peppers and this sauce is the perfect way to make use of red peppers when they are in season. 

You can freeze this sauce in portions so you can have the summer taste of peppers all year round.  I like to use this sauce on coodles, over some steak or just for dipping vegetables in.

So time to confess to being the Queen of not keeping up with life.  The will to get my camera out to capture those sweaty faced image you have grown to love has been at the bottom of my to do list.  I've just been trying to get my workouts done.

Chicken and Asparagus Stir Fry

You have to love asparagus; it means that spring has sprung and the summer is on the way.

This is a quick and easy meal that you can put together for a weeknight.  If you struggle to get the kids to eat asparagus just tell them it makes their pee smell, this usually get them bought in.

Workout Wednesday - 12 Sep 2018 Maximum effort

This week I am sharing the outcome of my week one bench press workout. I very rarely feel strong when it comes to my upper body workouts but I have to say this workout was a very different matter.  I not only feel strong, I didn't feel like I emptied the tank trying to get more reps on my last set.  The kettlebell component of this workout was challenging but so good.
