Get strong, long and lean with the best total body reboot we’ve ever published
If you’re one of those mythical, eternally motivated people, with their workouts inked into the diary (because, let’s face it, noncommittal pencil is for amateurs), power to you! Like, serious props. If, however, you’re part of the other 98 per cent of us living humans, a kick up the butt in the form of a brandnew, snazzy, wellthought-out fitness plan wouldn’t go astray. So, here it is! We’ve put together a killer workout program that will get you fit, trim and toned for summer and beyond, guiding you through four weeks of bodychanging moves and routines. Your exercise overhaul starts right here.
HOW IT WORKS
Easy! On four days a week, you’ll do a warm-up followed by a circuit or an AMRAP workout (that’s as many rounds as possible within a set amount of time). Wednesdays and Sundays are your cardio days – choose between interval training or a steady-pace session. “All this varied training is great to keep your body guessing,” explains accredited strength and conditioning coach Bradley Tinklin. “Our bodies are very smart and adaptable, and this can sometimes be the cause of a plateau. Switching up things like movements, intensity, time and resistance can all help to continue to produce results.” Hang on, rewind a sec, we hear you say – working out on a Sunday? But that’s the day for brunching in loungewear! Not for the foreseeable: Sunday is now a productive training day. “Sunday can be a great day to train as most of us don’t have work or too many commitments, so you have time to complete a good solid warm-up, work out and cool down,” says Tinklin. “Plus, knowing you have a session on Sunday can help keep you out of the pub on a Saturday night!” Well, you get out what you put in, right? Let’s do this.
