Personal Trainer

February 10, 2014

So I’ve taken on the services of a personal trainer. Only once a month mind. That’s all I can afford.

He’s a rest bloke called Lewis and he’s ex-military so that means plenty of body weight exercises. He’s given me a 4 week, 3 day per week program.
So far I’m on week 2 and I completed day 2. That means today I’ve done 40 minutes on the “Arc Trainer” today. Pretty hard going. The program days “light cardio” 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.

I’m still not seeing any weight loss but that’s not what I’m really looking for any more. What I want is fat loss and I’m definitely seeing that. I’m getting much more definition in my arms, shoulders and back and I can see a reduction in the fat on my belly.

I’ll keep you up to date on how I’m 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:

squat thrusts
military press with a medicine ball
full crunch
alternative v-sit-ups

For week 2 I’m doing each exercise for 30 seconds and do the set 4 times. This is not going to be easy!!

Wish me luck!
