Most of the benefit of workouts like this actually take place during the recovery phase. Hormones released by your body in response to the type of workout today will get your body into a fat burning, muscle building mode. Ladies, don't worry about getting big muscles - you don't have the right hormone levels to build big muscles without lots and lots of hard work and very specific, personalised programs. This sort of workout with give you tight buns of steel instead!!!
So without further delay gaze your eyes upon what I've got in store for you this week...
Plyometric power and sprint workout. Everyday I would like you to complete at least one of these sets of exercises. You can choose which to do but I'd really like you to mix it up. That being said, getting the sprints in often will likely yield the best results. Don't forget to be nice and warm before you start. This sort of workout puts huge demand on your muscles and joints and I don't want any injuries!
- 5 sets of squat jumps to failure
- 5 sets of jumping lunges to failure
- 5 x 10 seconds sprints - all out effort
The great thy about this is that you can do it with a friend or by yourself and your can incorporate it into the workout you already do. The key to get the most benefit is to work really hard. When I say 'to failure' I mean you need to keep going until your think you can't physically do anymore, then try and do another 3 or 4. It's tough but it doesn't last a long time.
Just a reminder - make sure you're nice and warm before starting to prevent injuries. Not sure how best to do that? Contact me. And remember, do this everyday to get that metabolism raised!
