This week we're playing "twelves"!
So... Start at one repetition per exercise, then two, then three, then four of each...until you've completed 12 of each exercise! Please also post your time on our Fit as Hel: Community Facebook group :-).
Here are the exercises for this week:
1. Squat thrust
2. Push up
3. Sit up
4. Jump squat
Aim to do two sets per day, completing this training regime three times during the week.
Here's your gym program for February -- enjoy :-)
1. Warm up at low/medium intensity for 5-10 mins to get a sweat on
2. 3x10 - BB squat – slow on the way down, explosive when pushing up
3. 2x8 - Cable incline press – set the cables at hip height, push to eye level
4. 2x8 - Cable decline press - set the cables above your head, push down
5. 3x15 - Cable row – imagine squeezing your shoulder blades hard together every time
6. 2x8 (each side) - Lunge - Med/heavy weight dumbbell in each hand
7. 3x10 - DB shoulder press – point your elbows slightly forward
8. 2x 10 - Lat pull down - wide grip (hands beyond the curves of the bar)
9. Cardio: 15 minute run (treadmill on a slight incline/outside). 30 second sprint 1 min jog. Repeat until 15 minutes are full.
Notes: The weights used in resistance training should be so heavy that you’re close to failing by your last repetition.
