Interval Training Workout Program
Following my recent articles on weight loss/fat loss, and the best ways of achieving it, below is an interval training workout program that you can try at your own gym. It will take you approximately 45 minutes to complete.
Interval training is one of the training methods I use with many of my clients to help them achieve their weight loss goals.
Let me know how you go, and remember, keep up the intensity!
|6 minute warm up on rowing machine. Two minutes steady, then 4 minute intervals – 20 seconds hard / 40 seconds recovery.|
|Perform A1 – A3 in a circuit for 4 rounds|
|A1||Dumbbell squat thrusters||10||45 seconds after each round.|
|Perform B1 – B3 in a circuit for 4 rounds|
|B1||Tricep dips||10||45 seconds after each round.|
|12 minutes on elliptical trainer. Two minutes steady, then eight minutes of intervals – 20 seconds hard / 40 seconds recovery, and then two minutes steady to recover.|
|5 minutes of stretching|
Note: Depending on your fitness level, you can decrease or increase the recovery periods between each interval e.g instead of a 20/40 work-to-rest ratio it could be altered to 15/45 or 20/10. The rest periods between each circuit workout can also be increased or decreased.
