It’s Wednesday evening here at faceless fitness, and it’s a non training day from a weights perspective which means it’s cardio only. I trained legs on Monday so my DOM’s are well and truly kicking in. I know this will be a tough session. As it’s now week 4 we’ve also started to increment up our cardio sessions by 2-3 minutes per week which means this is going to be a 42 minute session!
Work is really really tough at the moment, I’m geniunely out of the house for 12 hours per day. 1 hour travel to work, 10 hours working and 1 hour to travel home. It’s important to get your meals in aand training no matter what your situation is. It’s mentally tough but stick to your routine. if you have to move a days weights training, that’s fine but get back on track as soon as possible and do your cardio everyday. Continue reading →
It’s Saturday here at facelessfitness.com and this is a weights rest day. I’ve just come off the back of three straight days of heavy lifting and this is a well deserved (and well needed) rest day. However I do had a longer session of cardio to do today which I know will be tough because my legs are feeling the effects of the last couple of days.
If you’ve been following my Instagram @facelessfitguy you’ll know that I did not get much sleep last night, around 4 hours, which really sucks because I need sleep particularly at the weekends as my Monday to Friday is pretty hectic with work and training. I think I’m getting the flu, my girlfriend is currently out of work sick with it and their are a lot of germs floating around my apartment. She’s had it a couple of days but I’ve managed to keep it at bay…until now?!
I fell asleep around 12:30 am, but woke again at 2, coughing and sneezing and don’t talk to me about the DOMS from Continue reading →
Today is a non weights training day but that does not mean it’s a free day, I still have a 40 minute medium level intensity cardio session to carry out to complete day 12 of my programme. In addition I’m going to take this opportunity to add some of the softer elements to my programme. Stretching is extremely important, firstly to prevent injuries but secondly to allow your muscles to grow. Try to set aside a couple of minutes each morning and evening to stretch all the main areas of your body, in addition you should always stretch adequately before, after and indeed during any of the FacelessFitness.com workouts. If you work in an office Continue reading →
The DOMS, The DOMS, my legs are in agony this morning, real pain from my Glutes, Hamstrings and Quads. The main issue is getting up and moving, other than that I’m just fine Today is a non training day from a weights perspective but I’m still going to get in my 40 mins of cardio. Its very important to not skip the cardio on your non training days! Doing cardio every day, even at low intensity is central to the FacelessFitness programme.
I’ve put in a good Continue reading →
The DOMS have arrived, woke up this morning clung to the bed! Chest and Triceps in agony all day. I love being back though. Luckily today is a non weights training day so just the 40 minutes cardio to get through this evening. After last nights interval training my legs are a bit tired, the aim of this workout is to get my heart rate up to a medium to high level (around 150bpm) continually for the 40 minutes. In doing this I don’t necessarily need to burn out my legs, and leg day is coming at me fast tomorrow. I choose to complete my Continue reading →
