Not everyday is a brave day

I learn new things, challenge myself, and grow stronger as I workout. Some days I learnt how to use a new gym equipment; some days I pushed myself to go further; some days I tried new things that I couldn’t do last time; some days I conquered my fears; but not all fears can be overcome immediately.

Today is one of the days that my fear got over my faith and determination to do it. I couldn’t pushed myself to do side box jump. I’m so sad but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t do it in the future. One day, I will muster up the courage to do it!

It’s now or never!

Stepping up on my workout, I’m ready to do it with the weights. I’m at my fittest stage in my life so it’s either now or never! HIIT with weight training is very tough but you won’t die! What you need is courage, determination, perseverance, and more practice. Challenge yourself to go further and you will be surprised that you are stronger than you think!

Let your faith be bigger than your fear!

Touch the floor and jump HIIT workout

Step 1: Touch the floor with both hands.
Step 2: Jump high.
Step 3: Touch the floor with both hands again.
Step 4: Run on the spot.
Do 3 sets, 8 times each.

I’m always amazed, proud, and touched when I did the steps that I couldn’t do previously!

I say this all the times: If you can’t do it for 8 times, doing 5 times is good too. If you can’t do it for 5 times, doing 2 times is good too. As long as you don’t give up and keep trying, you will get better and able to do it one day! You are stronger than you think!
