As well as training children, there is nothing I like more than training myself, friends and women who what to change their body. The thing is, if you’re after some serious body composition changes and ready to get fit, strong and lean, then you need to follow some guidelines;
1) Lift heavy 1-3 times a week.
Heavy might mean your body weight to begin with or it might be some serious weights, it depends what level you are. Just remember when lifting heavy you’re technique needs to be perfect. If you’re not sure how to squat, lunge or push press properly then invest in yourself and pay a personal trainer to help you. Just a few sessions should do the trick.
2) High Intensity Interval Training every other day
This can be done by either sprinting out doors, on a machine or with a skipping rope. Try going hard for 60 seconds followed by a 2 minute recovery for 20 minutes.
3) Yoga once a week
Stretching needs to be given it’s own time and proper attention, the simplest way to be sure you are dong it is to join a yoga class. If you can spare the time, then buy a DVD that you can do at home or spend 15 minutes every night before bed with a foam roller and some stretch bands.
4) Walk – don’t take the car
A great one you can do with the kids – walking is fantastic for health. If you are already fit, it’s not going to give you big body composition changes but ievery little helps and it’s an excellent to reduce stress and get some fresh air!
