After a long(ish) winter, it’s time to dust off the cobwebs and get involved in some tried, tested and trusted exercises that we know and love (bonus, you are already good at them!) So be prepared to squat, press, push, pull-up and kettlebell for the rest of the month.
SAY HELLOOOOO and welcome back to a summer, beach bod in no time. You may have spent the winter eating heart-warming meals, (hey it’s okay!) and now it’s time to get back into shape (no, round is not a shape!).
SPRING Into Your Workouts
We suggest your spring cleaning program should consist of several components.
Starting off with a power movement:
- Box jumps: From a half-squat position, jump up onto the box.
- Plyometric pushups: Start at the top of a pushup position.
- Kettlebell swings: Put your feet about twice the distance of your hips apart.
- Dumbbell push presses: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart.
Followed by strength work and rep ranges:
- Glute bridges
In general, the recommendation for building strength is to use a weight you can lift for about 6 reps per set with proper form. If you’re just getting started, focus on a weight you can lift for a range of 6 to 12 reps. Just remember that reps just remember lifting heavier weights before you’re ready or comfortable with the moves increases your risk of injury.
And lastly finished off with some cardio.
- Walking uphill
- Road running
Training in this manner will enable you to work on your strength training, build muscle and lose weight.
