Gym training : HIIT & resistance

20 Feb

View this post on Instagram

5 years ago I was a regular gym goer, hitting the weights 5 times a week, but things change! Since then I've cycled through on and off phases – with my last on phase being well over a couple of months ago, and even then it was early days of getting back into fitness. This means I'm leaving my ego at the door! There's a little sadness in admitting I need to lower the intensity of my training until I'm back to a level of fitness that's suitable, but with that comes the satisfaction of seeing improvements much quicker to start with – so it's not all bad! So as a first log, here's last night's workout: HIIT session on the bike – 45 seconds high, 60 seconds moderate x 14 – total distance 13,015m with an average split of 1:53.2 Followed up with a cheeky little resistance session – lat pull down 25kg x 10 reps x 3 sets – bicep curl 4kg dumbells x 10 reps x 3 sets – lunges with 7kg dumbells x 10 reps x 3 sets – squats with 7kg dumbells x 10 reps x 3 sets – planks of 45 seconds with 30 second rest x 3 reps x 2 sets #musclebuilding #fitness #workout #trainingplan #cardio #resistance #gymsession
