Day 27 Weights – Back & Biceps, Cardio – 22 min Intervals

Having missed last nights session due to a car accident (Not Me), Today has become a Back & Biceps training day. I’m using a new gym today that I’ve not used previously for back and biceps so I may need to get creative in what I’m doing. Looking forward to smashing it!

Day 21: Weights – Back & Biceps, Cardio – 20 mins Intervals

It’s the final day of week 3 and for me (and you) it’s a training day. Today we’re looking to smash our Back and Biceps and really round off a great third week of training. Yesterday rest day has served me very well as a recovery day. I still have some muscle soreness in my calves but will push through to complete my interval training. To the gym…

Day 14: Weights – Back & Biceps, Cardio – 20 min Sprint Intervals

Faceless Fitness Day 14

Wow I’m hungover. I had a few pints yesterday with some friends which is ok as part of the faceless fitness gym programme, but only for the first 3-4 weeks. Make no mistake, alcohol is empty calories that you definitely do not need when you’re dieting. However for the initial phase, its fine and helps to keep you focused as it acts as a reward for completing some seriously tough gym sessions. The toughest thing with alcohol is how you behave the next day, health food is usually the last thing on you’re mind, but you don’t want to turn a few drinks with friends into a 2 day absence from your programme. If the next day is a training day, you get to the gym and train. Take water, plenty of water!

Total Workout Time: 1 hr 16 minutes (Hungover much)

Cardio: 20 minute Sprint Intervals
2 minute warm up Continue reading

Day 9: Weights – Back & Biceps, Cardio – 40 mins Medium Intensity

Woke up enthusiastic to get stuck into today’s session, working late yesterday meant a slight re-jig and I know my fitness programme is going to be a bit longer today as a result, I will continue with my planned 40 mins cardio and add my Back & Biceps session. The theme of week 2 is to go heavy and hard. Let’s get to the gym!

Total Workout Time: 1 hr 26mins
Cardio: 40 min Medium intensity – Cross Trainer for this
Straight forward work out, pick a medium intensity level and go at steady pace for 40 minutes, Aim to keep your heart rate over 170 BPM, I averaged around 175.
Cardio Mood: I generally don’t enjoy cardio particularly the longer sessions but they are necessary, pick a good mix on your phone/ipod/cassette player (remember those :p) and just go for it. I always feel better after than I do before on during, just get it done!
Weights Workout: Back & Biceps
Exercise 1 – Deadlift
10 reps @ 60Kg – Warm up

Day 2 – Weights: Back & Biceps, Cardio: 20 min Intervals

Day 2 – Back & Biceps

Woke up this morning feeling quite good, DOMS are not due to kick in for another day or so. It’s back and Biceps today, the back is a large area and usually one of my longer workouts, I know the gym I am attending does not contain a large barbell so will need to improvise without the ability to deadlift. Looking forward to he gym all day!

Cardio: 20 minute Intervals on Threadmill

4 x 5 minute cycles
1st min: Walk
2nd min: light Jog
3rd min: Jog
4th min: Light run
5th min: Sprint
repeat 4 times not rest (aside from walk minute)
Cardio Mood: Sweaty!! Intervals are always tough, heart rate peaked at around 185 bpm, just shy of 300 cals in 20 mins, great way to start my workout.

Weights Work Out: Back & Biceps
Exercise 1: Single Arm Dumbbell Row
10 reps @ 25 Kg (Max weight in this gym)
