So throughout the week I will be providing sample workouts based on 5 individual fitness goals, they are the following:
Monday - Muscle building
Tuesday - Strength
Wednesday - Fitness
Thursday - Flexibility
Friday - Fat loss
Each workout is a full body workout meaning you can repeat these several times in a week to make sure you get the most of each.
Reps - aka repetitions, the amount of times you perform the same movement
Sets - the amount of reps to group in one go before having a rest
Superset - perform one exercise straight after each other
Time - how long you perform the exercise for
I will provide you a rate of perceived exertion (RPE) - for simplicity this will be from 1 to 10. 1 being far too easy, could do this for days to 10 - I can't pick the weight up!
Hamstrings - 2/3 minutes each leg
Quadriceps - 2/3 minutes each leg
Calves - 2/3 minutes each leg
Glutes - 2/3 minutes each side
Adductors - 2/3 minutes
Chest - 2/3 minutes each arm
Lower back - 2/3 minutes each side
Shoulder - 2/3 minutes each arm
