Sample workout week - Strength Training


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!

Strength Training:

Squat - 5 sets of 5 reps (9RPE)

Rest 2-3 minutes after each set of 5 repetitions.

Deadlift - 5 sets of 5 reps (9RPE)

Rest 2-3 minutes after each set of 5 repetitions.

Bench press - 5 sets of 5 reps (9RPE)

Rest 2-3 minutes after each set of 5 repetitions.

Standing press - 3 sets of 8 reps (8-9RPE)

Rest 2 minutes after each set of 8 repetitions.

Farmers Walk - 3 sets of 20 metres (8-9RPE)

Rest 2 minutes after each set of 20 metres.

Glute bridge - 3 sets of 8 reps (8-9RPE)

Rest 2 minutes after each set of 8 repetitions.
