Comeback Workout 2014 – Preserving Movement

by Marianne  - February 3, 2014

I am publicly blaming my hubby for the delay on my Pain article – he’s away with the Prince on the Swiss Alps enjoying some ski time while am awaiting my Visa – STILL!

My personal passion is in teaching topics or working with you more directly. I always loved one-to-one and small group coaching (and one-to-one nursing, too).  This is one of the reasons why i have decided to specialise in working with you from where you are: One-to-one online coaching is more personal and you get to share your every success with someone (moi) who knows your program inside out. It really is a privilege to be trusted to give you support and coaching along the way. However, i will be thinking of new ways to help everyone out as best as i can by offering a range of services to suit your needs and finances.

Before i talk about today’s workout, i have a couple of other announcements: I unfortunately had to leave Get Glutes behind.  It was such a tough decision to make, and i am so grateful to have been a part of such an awesome team of coaches and an inspiring family of members, but i was carrying too much as i entered this new chapter in my life: getting married, moving countries and re-launching myomytv.  What an amazing year 2013 was! And a big thank you to Bret and Kellie for believing in me as part of the GG team!  It’s kind of scary when you realise you are going solo again!  But with the full support of my wonderful husband 🙂  I couldn’t be more grateful for him.

Thank you for your continued support and patience as we await the unveiling of my second home 🙂

The Workout

Because i am following a very low volume program, i only did 2 sets of each exercise and i paid full attention to my form and tempo through-out. Making sure i didn’t tip myself into fatigue. In my Pain Post, i will explain a little more about this stuff to help anyone in a similar situation.

1a. Double KB Box Squat (or Goblet Squat): 3×8

1b. SL Stability Ball Leg Curl: 3×8 (each side)

1c. Inverted Row: 3×8

  • Side Plank Hold: 1x 20-30 seconds (each side)

2a. Dynamic Push-Up: 3×8

2b. Double KB Swing (or single arm swing): 3×8

  • Side Plank Hold: 1×20-30 seconds (each side)



I’ll be back later in the week. Let me know your thoughts on what’s to come on myomytv 🙂

      1. I just found the post where you talked about it. Have your symptoms changed that you believe that’s not the case? I hope you keep up with your warrior spirit and rise through this.
        All the best.

      1. Issued to be, but changed readers—and then the RSS logo disappeared from the site. Can you show me where the RSS link is located now?

  1. I am so glad you are back with more workouts. I missed seeing your videos. I will sign up for your e-mail announcements etc.
    I just joined a gym. I hit a wall after the cold hit here in NYC.

    looking forward to what new things you have coming.

    congratulations on your marriage best to both of you.

  2. So glad your back! Thought you ran away to get married and kept running;) Looking forward to both areas.
    All the best to you!

  3. So sorry to hear your dealing with so much pain on a regular basis. Must be hard to keep up with training etc. Still looks like you’re really keeping your strength up despite things:) Please sign me up to get your emails. I’m excited to see the new changes in your website etc!

  4. Hello Marianne, Nice to have you back! Congratulations with the wedding, by the way! You look so happy and beautiful 🙂
    I am looking forward to your new site, and will definitely sign up for your emails. Thank you, and good luck with everything!
    Kind regards from Kirsten

  5. You have great form and you move with such grace through these movements… If I couldn’t hear you breathing I’d swear you weren’t working that hard! 😉

    Thanks for this!

    1. Thanks Jen 🙂 I honestly didn’t get out of breath until the last superset – snatches!! But i am purposely not working to fatigue, and that is tough for me to deal with because i am so used to my goal being intensity (either by max rep effort or by more weight effort).

  6. So excited for you and this new chapter in your life and career!! I’d love to sign up for the emails as well, but can’t see exactly where.

  7. I am so happy for you and the fact that you are following your passion and sharing it all with us! We are all blessed for having you in our lives as a sourse of inspiration, a when we are troubled for your words and insights hit home and make us look at things in different perspectives. And of course help us stay healthy and strong physically as well as spiritually and mentally.
    Good luck to you, congratulation on your marriage and best wishes for all good things to come your way.

  8. Love your site, Marianne! Can’t imagine it getting any better. 🙂

    Best of luck with all of the amazing changes in your life. Can’t wait to hear more.

  9. Hello. I too have had a painful back for the last 2 weeks. It is very frustrating.

    In watching this workout, are you resting at all or just super setting everything without any rest?

    I’m trying to get over the concept that to gain strength I don’t have to spend 1 1/2 hours in the gym everyday.

    1. Hi Dianna, sorry about your back. With a bit of rest, you’ll be back to normal soon 🙂 Just do what doesn’t hurt and you’ll be grand. Even lower the volume of training, but still keep moving. Something like this workout with maybe 2 sets of 6 reps might suit you well. No need to go for max intensity if you’re in pain.

      Rest as long as you feel you need. I didn’t rest until i had finished 1 round/superset and then only for 1-2mins. I didn’t push myself like i usually do so i didn’t need much rest.

      It’s really hard to let go of the old “more is better” mentality, but it really pays to do it and just enjoy shorter sessions 🙂
