A strength PB is the heaviest weight your incredible body can lift for 1 repetition! The strength and confidence you’ve built over these past 6 months has hopefully empowered you to see exactly what your body is capable of in this programme!
How do I know what weight to use for 5 reps?
When it comes to the weights you use it’s all in the reps. The weight you choose should feel harder towards the end of the reps - so in this case, reps 4/5 should feel harder. If you feel like you can keep going, increase the weight! I’ve created a section on my Insights that covers this too!
What if I’m not ready to try for a strength PB?
If you still feel like you need to build your confidence and strength with things that’s completely OK! This is your journey and it’s so important you do things at your own pace. If you’re not ready to try for that PB yet, stick to the normal sets and reps for the movements - 3x10 (weeks 1/2) and 4x10 (weeks 3/4) ♥️
What do I need to participate in this program?
All you need to train with me is your incredible body, resistance bands and access to a gym!
What are the goals of the program?
The goal of this programme is to help you build the strength and confidence you deserve, not only with using weights and the movements themselves, but within yourself and that incredible body of yours!

Give yourself the kindness and grace you deserve, focussing on acknowledging and appreciating the progress you are making in ALL of it’s forms, no matter how small!

How to schedule the program into a week?
My programmes are there to be adapted around YOU, how you feel, your body and your life. Make sure you schedule your work out days in whatever order suits you best, prioritising the days you enjoy when you have weeks where your time is limited!
Never forget, you are not a machine. Your best might look different every week but its still your best!

If you still feel like you need to continue building your confidence with your current programme that’s completely fine! Always move onto the seventh programme when YOU are ready, there’s absolutely no pressure and it’s so important you go at your own pace!
What if I have a question that isn’t answered here?
Please don’t hesitate to reach out and message me if you have a question, no matter what it is! I always say there’s no such thing as a stupid question, just one you don’t know the answer to, and it is my absolute pleasure to help as much as I can 💗
Eccentric is basically when you slow down the lowering phase of the movement. By slowing the movement down it allows you to not only challenge your body by holding more tension, it can help you improve your form and mind to muscle too!
What if a movement doesn’t feel comfortable for me?
If any movement feels uncomfortable for your incredible body please don’t hesitate to message me! I can check your form during the movement, giving you any tips that might make it feel better OR I can give you adaptations for the movement too so you’re always getting the most out of your programme 💪🏼
