I have decided this year, to have a new fitness plan known as My New 2014 Fitness Plan, which means “out with the old, and in with the new”. Just had to change my Fitness plan because boredom started to set in. Here are a few exercises I have added to my New 2014 Fitness Plan.
First, I indulge in a warm up to avoid injury. This session includes a few stretches for the back, the back of the shoulder, triceps, hip flexor, Calf, hamstring and quadriceps. Then I would go on the Cross Trainer for 10 to 15 minutes to conclude the warm up.
Next, on to the Leg and Hip abduction, 45 Kg’s, 15 reps, 2 sets, but I found this challenging, so I started off with 10 reps instead, but I am now able to do 15 reps, 3 sets.
I was introduced to the TRX training suspension recently and even though it looks quite easy to use, in reality it isn’t. TRX requires a lot of strength. TRX suspension training is where I use my own body weight to exercise by holding in to belts and relying on the core for movements.
There are 3 types of training that I have embarked on using the TRX. They are
TRX Squats, 15 reps, 2 sets.
TRX Flyes, 15 reps, 2 sets.
TRX Row, 15 reps, 2 sets.
And then on to TRX Squats, Rows and Flyes, 15 reps, 2 sets. The good thing about the TRX is that I am not stuck with one pose, and it gives you the chance to try out several poses, which eliminates boredom.
Afterwards I’ll move on to the Treadmill, Manual program, Incline 5.5, Speed 4.5.
I have still kept the Bosu machine as part of my 2014 Fitness Plan. I mean, I’ve not literally kept it, but I’ve incorporated it into My New 2014 Fitness Plan. It gives me a burst of energy like I’ve never felt before.
The workout ends with some abs exercises are included like the Russian twist and back raises. My final destination would be to go on to the upright bike for 10 to 15 minutes to end the day’s workout and more stretches.
