What is Complex training (Info)
Being as though iv just posted up a workout using forms of complex training i thought id do a quick bit on it to explain it. In a nutshell without all the science stuff it is very effective at adapting your muscles to be explosively powerful (velocity). It generally comprises of using a heavy load exercises for example a bench press followed by an plyometric exercise such as clap push ups. You...
Any one who is reading or need information on what the exercises are or and advice give me a shout ill do my best to help!
Thursday Explosive Strength (30.6.11)
Its been a pretty good day again today in the world of training! Its not 21:44 and im feeling pretty damn tired which is always a good sign! Todays workout was an explosive strength session. All about using weights and other methods to increase the maximum velocity of muscle contraction ( increase speed!) The stuff is normally short but sweet focusing on improving athletic performance rather than...
Wednesday Conditioning and Endurance (29.6.11)
I was really happy with todays work considering i was and still am a little bit hungover! But i managed to get through it and even excel today in some bits! Definitely can feel my conditioning coming back and my fitness getting back to where it was hopefully with no distractions now i will be able to build on it! Anyway ill keep it short this is what happened! 10 mins skipping Workout 101 (20...
Urrgghhh my head

Tuesdays Strength work (28.6.2011)
Yesterdays strength session felt really good. It was based heavily on ross trainings stuff. Couple of stuff modified for me due to either lack of equipment or lacking in strength. Did a light warm up with some body weight exercises some chin ups and push ups then did the following work out 1 Arm Dumbbell Clean and press from floor (18kg Dumbell) 4 reps per arm 4 sets 1 Arm Dumbbell Snatch...
Flexibility/ Mobility (Info From Defranco...
Iv come across this on a boxing forum i go on. Its from Joe Defrancos Page. I havnt tried this yet as you do need a foam roller really but im going to pick one up. It sounds awesome for improving flexibility / mobility and injury prevention. I like it rather than being one long stretching class its short mini workouts you can do each day to improve your mobility and flexibility. Anything would...
Monday Bootcamp!! (27.6.11)
Tonight was another good session for bootcamp. Once again that time of the week where i get pushed to the limit! Like iv said before this is invaluable because as hard as i like to train theres nothing like being pushed by an experienced trainer. I recommend everyone does at least once a week with a trainer of some description and i guarantee you will work harder then than at any other time....
Customizing my skipping rope like its my weapon of choice… id like to say its due to a secret training technique… but its due to not being able to afford a new one ! Oh yeh how cool am i?
livingnick-deactivated20110822 asked: Thanks for the info, I'll definitely have to look into that more now that you mentioned it!
Thoughts on Last week's Training
Its been a really busy weekend and im knackered. Im in the middle of clearing and moving house so i feel like iv done 2 days training rather than the couple days rest i had planned but never mind its gotta be done! Last week was real good. It was great to get back into an organized training schedule. Although iv thought and re-organized it to be more effective next week. Last week was very...
Strength Training (Info)
I came across this and thought it would be handy to post up. I used to be of the thought, like most people, that strength training was for body builders and meat heads. Its sooo much more than that I regularly include strength training in my workouts now and want to get it even more effective and organized. Couple things to re-iterate about me. Im not a body builder, im not interested in...

Taking it easy (24.6.2011)
Right its Friday! Its been a good solid 4 days of training this week. Yesterday was very focused on strength and heavy lifting ect so today im feeling quite tired. Im not going to have a full on day today. I want to do a core work out as yesterday i didnt do it as planned. It was the right thing to do by not completing it yesterday. You only learn by doing and now i know that doing something that...

Strength Endurance Workout (23.6.11)
Today was a tough session! Iv done alot of conditioning and fitness work this week. Im very used to conditioning training these days. And while its always as intense as possible mentally i can just keep working through it. Its getting towards the end of the week so i know ill have maybe Saturday and Sunday to recover/ light training. So today i wanted a full on strength session. Now theres...
Feel better for it!
Just finished a 45 min circuit will post up later! Hardest of the week and im really happy its all done now! When your feeling like shit sometimes its just what you need! Just finishing up with the all important core work then shower and food!
Mr Motivation i am not today! Well this week really! Its been a tough week and its been difficult to trudge through workouts. Today i have planned a tough workout. Its aimed at strength which doesnt excite me anyways. Its going to be hard. So how do i motivate myself to do it!! Well i dont think theres any answer to be honest! And to a certain extent its just getting off your arse and doing it. I...

The Burpee is King
I thought every so often id write up on individual exercises a bit why i find them useful. I was going to say why i love them but love isnt the right word. Adding burpees to any workout in my oppinion can only be a good thing. The few times iv had my friends round for a bit of training you should hear the groans when i say the word BURPEE’s! Which means it must be difficult, which means...

Conditioning (Weds 22.6.11)
Right today was tough. Really didnt want to do anything. But as usual once you just start it tends to come together. And being pissed off at other crap i really didnt need , trained with alot more intensity than usual which is always a good thing. Skipping 10 mins - this is a warm up so nice and easy for the first 5 mins even stopping to do some joint rotations and dynamic stretching. However by...
Just finished a work out will post it up laters! Absolutely knackered! Had a shitty emotional morning. But wont bore you with that. However i guess you can think of it two ways when your feeling like that. Either its going to defeat you or your going to defeat it!

Sprint For your Life!! (Tuesday 21.6.11)
Today was a tough one. Bootcamp last night really wiped me out. Hadn’t had such a conditioning session for quite sometime. The work load for today looked quite daunting but i knew once i started id be fine. Plus the sun was out which always helps. Id drank loads of water and had a good lunch that was well digested by 4pm so then it was time to just get out there and get to it! Another thing...
Bootcamp (Monday 20/6/11)
First post of my training routines. Today i went to a circuit boot camp class. This is a great class run by The Fortress of Fitness ( Paul Fortman) @ whitby high school. I recommend this to anyone. Its a fantastic workout involving all the normal circuit training exercises. The difference with this class is Paul really pushes you to YOUR limit. As hard as i train on my own this is the only time i...
