Gym Sessions

Whether you love or hate the gym its pretty much a must in modern day society especially because of the invention of ice cream, KFC and burritos. You can’t honestly say that you don’t love at least one of those items in the previous list, because lets face it they are the best things since sliced bread. To be able to balance the tasty food its important to get all the exercise you need so for most people that means going to the gym. I am a committed gym going and I typically go 2 times a week during term time but over the summer I’ve been going 4+ times a week. So today I’m going to share with you some of my favourite sessions to do at the gym.

The 2k

2k Walking/Running ( incline of 7%/1.5%)
2k Cycling (level 8)
2k Rowing (level 10)
20 reps on weights of your choice

10 minute Circuits

10 minutes on Step Climber = about 50 floors of 17 steps
10 minutes Walking/Running (Incline of 7%/1.5%)
10 minutes Octane Elliptical (if your gym has, its a really good machine)
10 minutes Cycling (level 8) = about 3.5k
10 minutes Rowing (level 10) = about 2k
10 minutes weights of your choice

 

The all round 5

5k running/walking (takes me about 35 minutes at my best)
50 floors on Step Climber
5 minutes weights

 

I hope this post gave you some inspiration for your next workout, these circuits have really helped me to improve my fitness levels. I can also really recommend BBG by Kayla Itsines and also the Ab workout by Soundcoach which is available for download on Apple podcasts and soundcloud!

  1. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and
    visual appearance. I must say you have done a very good job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Opera.

    Excellent Blog!

  2. Aw thank you so much! I have tried really hard on trying to get my blog looking decent and i’m glad you like the look of it 🙂

  3. Howdy, I believe your site could possibly be having internet browser compatibility issues.
    When I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine
    however, when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!

    Besides that, great site!

  4. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an incredibly long comment
    but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyways, just wanted to say excellent
    blog!

  5. Oh no! Don’t know what happened there 🙂 Thank you so much. Have a wonderful week

  6. I don’t leave plenty of comments on plenty of blogs
    yet i sensed i needed to here. Top quality articles you have here.

  7. Does your site have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but,
    I’d like to shoot you an email. I’ve got some recommendations for your blog you might be
    interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.

  8. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I
    stumbleupon everyday. It’s always exciting to read through content from
    other authors and practice a little something from
    their sites.
