I spoke about an overview of my current fitness routine in my previous post. I wanted to create a blogpost for each day to show in detail exactly what I am doing!
So lets get into it!
When I first get into the gym, I always warm up. You can find lots of fun and different ways to warm up on the bodybuilding.com website. My warm up changes depending on what I am doing and how I feel! I know myself when my body is warmed up enough and ready for a workout.
Part one: Chest
As I explained in my previous post, I tend to switch the exercises up aslong as they are hitting the right body part. But here is an example of the type of workout I do!
|Push ups||2 sets x 15 reps||Click here|
|Alternating Dumbbell Press||5 sets x 6 reps||Click here|
|Machine Chest Press||3 sets x 10 reps||Click here|
|Machine Fly||3 sets x 10 reps||Click here|
|Svend Press||2 sets x 15 reps||Click here|
|Cable Crossover||3 sets x 15 reps||Click here|
Part two: Tabata
I explained in my previous post what this is. I completed 8 rounds of skipping, 20 seconds on 10 seconds off. Although this is only 4 minutes, I put 110% effort into it, and I am usually pretty tired by the end of it!
Part Three: Cardio
Again, I explained in the previous post what kind of cardio I complete in this program. Today I completed 25 minutes of steady cardio on the bike. The intensity is enough so that I am working up a sweat, but I would still be able to hold a conversation quite easily whilst performing it.
So apart from then cooling down, that’s it for today!
Usually I can feel an ache by the next day after I have trained chest, so be prepared for some sore muscles (although this can be reduced by adequate cooling down and stretching!)
Thanks for reading!
