[donotprint] Two of my favourite things at the moment…brownies and supersets! A bit of a strange combination I’ll give you that but one fuels the other – quite literally!
My protein energy balls were a fantastic success and I munched my way through them in no time…there was only one thing for it – more bites! This time round I went for a bit of a chocolate fix and a bar or bite like shape just to switch it up a bit. The Vanilla Sunwarrior Protein Powder wasn’t the predominant flavour but complimented the rich taste of cocoa.
They weren’t that dissimilar to the my raw cocoa oatie bars. Just a deliciously sweet and chocolaty with an extra hit of protein.
I decided to use a little less this time round as I’ve been lashing it in to smoothies like it’s nobody’s business and I’m flying through my bag at high speed (though I my be subconsciously doing so as I’m longing to try the chocolate variety!)
A nice change from the balls. Raw bar, bite or ball making is now becoming a weekly task. They’re my new energy dense easy to eat addiction. The recipe makes six I just gobbled one straight up before my camera got a chance to take a snap!
And then came supersets. I remember the first superset workout I tried, not all that long ago; Courtney’s Full Body Superset Workout. I loved it and it’s still one I do on a regular basis.
I decided to try my hand at creating my own superset workout and it turned out pretty well; I was pleased with my efforts so figured they were worth sharing.
Let me know what you think!
Here are some the exercises that you might not be familiar with….
Supersets or Circuits, which is your preference when it comes to weight training?
I find supersets a bit more challenging and focused and they tend to go buy even faster. [/donotprint]
