Welcome to my training page. Im doing this mainly to keep a record of what iv done through the year and hopefully years to come. So i know where im up to and what works and what doesnt! Also going to post any relevant info i come across. Im a novice and Im far from an expert but i hope one day to become qualified and be an expert in the mean time hope it helps people.
I welcome all Questions, this isnt about being right or wrong so i also welcome any debate or disagreements!
Yesterday i got in the gym and did pure conditioning. I wasnt feeling the energy after being off due to a cold last week. But i went through the motions and feel better for it today!
Every second minute for 20 minutes (10 rounds) no break between exercises start the routine every 2 minutes
Kettle Bell 12.5 kg
one minute on each
Just repeated 3 times today
3 x 3 minute rounds (KILLER)
And that was it i did some more skipping . last couple days iv taken it easy but i must remember good quality core work and flexibility at the end of sessions and not neglect it!
Right i was back on it yesterday! Its been a good couple of weeks of sloppy workouts and not great with my food intake! In the grand scheme of things im still in shape! Iv been working crazy hours and was religiously trying to keep to the training schedule. I think it just wore me out! Im feeling ready and motivated again and iv got a bit more free time coming up and reasonable hours at work!
Im sure it will get to the point where im working alot again or life gets in the way but i think the trick is going to be to drop down the training schedule and just keep ticking over. I also havent made a 4 week plan ect , i know in my head now what i need to do and im just going to play it by ear!
Anyway enough crap lets go!
Work Capacity Circuit
For 20 minutes , on every second minute complete
No break between exercises, you rest once all reps completed until the next 2nd minute for example you start the routine at 2 mins it takes you until 3.15 mins to complete you get to rest 45 seconds until the 4th minute! By the end of the 20 mins your talking 50 push ups 100 med ball slams 150 burpees 20 star jumps. This is pure hell but i cant recommend this circuit enough builds serious fitness and work capacity even if you you drop the burpees to 10 per round its a serious challenge!
1 minute on each exercise 1 minute rest at the end repeated 4 times
And the rest
Core Work Out
Done as circuit repeated 4 times
And that was my workout for the day! Very enjoyable which shows the mentality has changed for the better as this time last week that isnt how i was feeling!!
So its back to it , good workouts and clean living! ….. well its my birthday on Saturday so a couple of beers might be in order after the gym!!
Well iv ended up having a couple days off this weekend. I went to the Cleverly Bellew fight last night so i didnt want to be rushing and doing a crap workout! Quality in sessions is always the aim!! However it makes pretty much zero difference. Day 4 i did most of day 5’s planned workout and day 6 (today) would have been sprints. So all it means is ill do the remainder of the 2 days combined tomorrow on what would normally have been the rest day, then go straight into the second cycle. Very boring but just so you all know im not cheating!!
On a side note the boxing last night was awesome and i really enjoyed a night out and about. It makes a nice change to routine and everyone needs that break from training every so often! But i kept it clean and boring no alcohol and didnt pig out too much!
Back on it tomorrow and i cant wait!
Today i wanted to do the strength training and ab work i had planned and also the swim i have planned for tomorrow! It frees up my afternoon up tomorrow so i can get ready for a night at the boxing in liverpool!
But here was todays!
Was a good session. The Barbell Rows and overhead press are new exercises to me so the weight was relatively light trying to get form correct and making sure it was comfortable to do the full 5x5. Will increase rapidly i would hope.
The swim felt good! I always start swimming again and forget how hard it is and great exercise. Everyone knows this its not a secret but man its good! Going to try and fit it in once a week at least! Downside is to it getting changed ect and making it worthwhile is time consuming but theres no reason why not to get it done. I think after a strength workout it will be a great thing to finish off with , doesnt have to be hell for leather just that little something extra .
Last few workouts have been good and im already feeling the difference with my “new” training and cleaning up my diet slightly.
So far so good!
Quick write up so i can get some kip soon! Today was intervals and happened like this!
It was a good session felt very intense really went for it on the versa climber! Rowing times dont seem to be as good as when used to row a fair bit but something to work on!! 4.20 was because my foot decided to bleed on me and was a tad painful! Harden the f*ck up came to mind! haha!
Core Work (repeat circuit 4 times)
Finished with plank for 1 min 40 sec
Having just looked at my plan Im a bit annoyed at myself that i completely forgot to do leg raises in my circuit!
Owel good work all in all! Tomorrow im thinking of doing 2 days worth of training in one afternoon! Im not sure yet its only because i want to have saturday afternoon free to get ready to go see a boxing match in liverpool! CANT WAIT!!!!
