It’s Thursday of week 3 on the facelessfitness.com gym programme, Today is shoulders, Traps and Abs day. I really think these muscle groups give you the biggest bang for your buck in terms of completing a real transformation, the shoulders and traps give your upper body real shape, making your frame wider and tshirts hang off you. The Abs will really be achieved through a progressive diet and cardio regime over the next couple of weeks but our aim at this point is to actually build our abdominal muscles so that when we shred down our body fat we have something meaningful to reveal.
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.
Total Workout Time: 1 hr 20 mins
Cardio: 5 x 6 storey Sprints
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

This was an unplanned rest day for my weights, got caught working late and couldn’t make it to the gym, it’s ok, it happens! I’ve just rejigged my week a little, It means the next three nights of the fitness programme will include lifting weights. If something unexpected happens and you have to switch a days training, that’s ok! the aim is to get it back on track as soon as possible and plan better to limit the risk next time out. Never skip cardio!
I usually do my HIIT cardio training Continue reading
