So Iíve taken on the services of a personal trainer. Only once a month mind. Thatís all I can afford.
Heís a rest bloke called Lewis and heís ex-military so that means plenty of body weight exercises. Heís given me a 4 week, 3 day per week program.
So far Iím on week 2 and I completed day 2. That means today Iíve done 40 minutes on the ďArc TrainerĒ today. Pretty hard going. The program days ďlight cardioĒ but that would be too easy!! I also added some barbell dead lifts (I hit my 70kg target), barbell bent over rows, seated dumbbell shoulder press and some work on the pec deck.
Iím still not seeing any weight loss but thatís not what Iím really looking for any more. What I want is fat loss and Iím definitely seeing that. Iím getting much more definition in my arms, shoulders and back and I can see a reduction in the fat on my belly.
Iíll keep you up to date on how Iím doing with the program. Day 3 is 20 minutes hard work on a cardio machine (treadmill, arc trainer or cycle) plus a killer body weight set:
military press with a medicine ball
For week 2 Iím doing each exercise for 30 seconds and do the set 4 times. This is not going to be easy!!
Wish me luck!
