Cel­e­brate your­self

Try Caro­line’s favourite full-body work­out for se­ri­ous body gains

Irish Examiner - Feelgood - - Cover Story -

Toned arms, slen­der waists, firm thighs, and shapely glutes don’t sim­ply rely on low body fat alone, you will also need to gain some lean mus­cle tis­sue which will only be achieved by fol­low­ing an in­tel­li­gent weight train­ing pro­gramme, ex­plains Sarah Lind­say, Caro­line’s per­sonal trainer.

“Train­ing should not be seen as pu­n­ish­ment for what you ate yes­ter­day but in­stead, start think­ing of it as a cel­e­bra­tion of what your body can do. “Train like an ath­lete and trust me, you’ll start look­ing like one.”

This full-body work­out is based on su­per­sets (in pairs), which helps in­crease the to­tal amount of work you can com­plete in a sin­gle work­out.

KIT YOU’LL NEED: 2 x dumb­bell Bench Bar­bell

HOW TO DO IT Per­form the al­lo­cated reps and sets for each move. Com­plete Pair A three times with 60-90 sec­onds’ rest be­tween each ex­er­cise be­fore mov­ing onto Pairs B, C and D.

Aim to per­form three times a week.
