It’s a brand new week, meaning that we have a whole seven days to make the most of it. Mine is looking to be rather hectic, so I’ll need all the energy that I can to tackle it with the usual Tigeress style.
Here’s some rather bright fitness inspo from my shoot with photographer Tom Joy. Let’s smash this week!
Energy drinks. Always a touchy subject in the fitness world. Should we drink them? Should we not? As much as I’ll have a cheeky one every now and again (mainly after a big night out), my personal opinion is to give them a miss. Packed with sugar and god knows what else, they’re not exactly the healthiest way to fuel up. That was until the lovely guys at Tenzing got in touch and introduced me to their fabulous all natural energy drink.
Inspired by the Sherpa people and their special energising brew to fuel expeditions on the highest mountain in the world, Mt Everest, and named after Sherpa Tenzing Norgay- one of the first men to reach the top- I was more than honoured to give Tenzing a try. Made from six key ingredients of green tea, green coffee, guarana (seeds from berries that are twice as rich in natural caffeine than coffee!), Himalayan rock salt, lemon juice and beet sugar, there is absolutely nothing artificial about this energising drink.
Not only does it taste delicious, it is really refreshing and doesn’t leave you with the slump that other energy drinks can do after they burn out. I felt surprisingly awakened and didn’t have to feel bad about putting any nasty synthetic products into my body. In fact, after a tough gym session, I am actually sipping on one right now!
I’d definitely recommend this to any busy or not-so-busy-body, as it really does taste fab. It also doubles as a great alternative to a fizzy drink, for anybody trying to reduce their fizzy pop intake! I usually stick to water, but am definitely keen to pick up a few more Tenzing cans for when I’m feeling low on energy. Thanks Tenzing, you have introduced me to a real gem- sold!
Don’t know what TRX is? TRX is a suspension trainer that uses body weight to give you an all over workout. Unlike most resistance machines, body weight exercising requires engagement of the core (rather than isolating particular muscles), therefore TRX is great for core training, as well as everywhere else!
If you haven’t come across TRX before, it’s not exactly obvious to know how to use them. That’s why I’ve brought you my top exercises for the core, arms, legs and bum. Check them out- along with full teaching points- by clicking right here.
