So I gave blood for the first time this weekend and am really feeling a little light-header and not my full self since then. My blood count was totally fine to give blood but it really affected me more than I thought I would. that being said, I’d happily do it again once given the all-clear as there is such a shortage of blood for those who need it most, particularly at this time of the year when donations are much lower.
With this in mind, I went for a lighter circuit which is perfect for those days where you feel 75% and nothing will change that feeling! Still a little movement to get the oxygen flowing was actually just what the doctor ordered! Feeling much better since then 🙂
Here what this morning looked like for me:
4 x min steady state cardio to warm up
Stretch and foam roll for 10 mins
Glute Bridges x 15 (with 2 sec pause at top)
Bent over rows x 15 (with 8kg dumb bells)
Kettlebell sumo squats x 20 (with 16kg kettlebell)
Kettlebell pull-ups x 15 (with 12kg kettlebell)
Wall-sit x 1 min (with 15kg weight)
Leg Raises x 15
Plank x 1 min
(Repeat x 5 with 45 secs rest in between)
Give this a go and let me know how you get on!
