Day 33: Weights – Rest Day, Cardio – 25 min Low Intensity x 2

Even though it’s Friday this project won’t do itself. And similar to yesterday It’s unlikely I will make it to the Gym. I had initially planned on Back & Biceps tonight but that will not happen. Between work, gym & home life it’s all about getting the balance right. You can’t neglect any one of these. I got home late from work but honestly probably did have enough time to make the gym if I really wanted to. However Continue reading

Day 32: Weights – Rest Day, Cardio: 25 min Low Intensity x 2

I am absolutely up the walls at work. Today is a non training day from a weights perspective but I still need to get my cardio in. I know from yesterday that I’m probably going to be working late again this evening so I need to plan ahead a little. I am tired but the pre planning will mean I get my cardio in despite not really having time to do it.

My commute to work usually takes Continue reading

Day 31: Weights – Chest & Triceps, + Abs, Cardio – 25 min Low Intensity

It’s Wednesday evening of the facelessfitness.com gym programme, after the long weekend. Motivation is low. I worked another 10 hour day at work so I’ll be getting to the gym late this evening. I’m tired and a genuine emotional wreck. Why the hell did I drink so much on Sunday. It’s funny its still affecting me. No more! Let’s smash the weights and hope I survive!

Day 30: Weights – Shoulders & Traps, Cardio – 25 min Low Intensity

Day 30…tough going. I’m just about recovered for the alcohol but today I am back to work and it’s hectic. I have a feeling this is going to be one of those long short weeks at work, where because of the bank-holiday and having Monday off, I will now be chasing the week working extra hours to get s**t nailed by Friday. I worked 10 hours today, which added to my commute means that I was out of the house for 12 hours. Whatever your situation you can find the time if you really want it!

Anyway, it’s Shoulders and Traps today and it’s time to hit the gym!

Day 28 Weights – Legs, Cardio – 30 min Low Intensity

Its the end of week 4 here at facelessfitness.com and we’re finishing with Legs and a 30 minute walk. I will be going drinking for the last time today, so it’s important I really put in in this morning on this workout. The FacelessFitness Programme allows alcohol up to the end of the fourth week, in moderation! but then no drinking for the remaining 8 weeks. I’m home and meeting some old friend so it could get interesting, however I’m here to smash legs. I’m using a different gym today again, it’s pay as you go and one I use a lot when I’m home. Should be a little quieter too on a bank-holiday sunday! Lets do this.

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 26 Weights – Rest Day, Cardio – 22 min low intensity

Today was initially planned as a weights training day, Back & Biceps, however it simply did not turn out like that! It’s the Friday of the October bank-holiday weekend here in Ireland and I like most other young professionals was planning on getting out of the capital and travelling home for the weekend. Instead of my usual bus route to work I decided to walk to and from work which takes around 25 minutes each way. This means that when I get home I only need to close out my weights session…nicely planned FacelessFitGuy! 🙂 Continue reading

Day 24: Weights – Rest Day, Cardio – 42 min Medium Intensity

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

Day 23: Weights – Shoulders, Traps & Abs, Cardio – 22 min Sprint Intervals

Today for Shoulders I’m going to be using the FacelessFitness Pyramid Set technique, This combines high reps and heavy weights and gets really great results, It works really well for shoulders but can also be applied to any muscle group. However trainer beware you do not want to use this technique on every muscle group every time as it will lead to over training. We did use it last week but I feel fresh enough to go again. Definitely do not use this technique for every muscle group every day!
