This Is What Your Training Session Looks Like This Week …

Firstly before you get under way with your latest workout I want to remind you of something important. As the weather is getting a little chillier, it is vital to make sure that you are thoroughly warm before getting into the bulk of your work out.  I am a strong believer that warming up not only prepares you physically and mentally for the workout but it makes you perform better. It is all to do with the physiological process of the body. A warm up gradually increases your heart rate which in turn increases blood flow to the brain and the body and the better oxygen efficient the body will become. It reduces the muscle tension in the body which in-turn reduces the risk of injury…… who would want that right! (we are not getting any younger and no one wants to deal with injury)

Great options for warm ups are walking on the treadmill and gradually increasing the pace to a jog. Alternatively you could use a bike and gradually increase speed and resistance. So during the warm up not only does your body physically adapt to the increase in activity your mind also benefits with an increased positive attitude towards the workout. Which is precisely when you should continue to the main section of the workout.  Which in your case right now is this circuit:

Circuit

  • jump squat for 1 min
  • Running or Bike for 2 mins (push hard)
  • push ups for 1 min
  • Running or Bike for 2 mins
  • Straight Leg Sit Ups for 1 min
  • Running or Bike for 2 mins
  • Walk hands forward and walk hands back (inch worms) for 1 min
  • Running or Bike for 2 mins
  • Dips for 1 min
  • Running or Bike for 2 mins
  • Mountain Climber for 1 min
  • Running or Bike for 2 mins
  • Bicep to Press (4 km weights) for 1 min

Please note: You can do this workout in the privacy of your own home. You can replace the running or bike for a skipping rope or star jumps. The benefits will be similar.Remember you don’t always need to use a gym.
