New week & another step towards achieving my goals.
Although i am hoping to work the event, i have my tickets for the BodyPower Expo next May, as well as registering to compete at the Miami Pro Championships.
I am now just awaiting details for the Fitness Britain Championships to allow registration for that too.
I am taking an executive decision to postpone going for my Pro Card until 2013 or even 2014. This is based mostly on financial reasons, however, i am also considering shoulder surgery to improve the condition of my rotator cuffs.
Next week i shall be filming a workout with 2010 NPA British Champion Del Galloway.
But back to this week….
Yesterday was a busy day from beginning to end, with a Back & Delts session and a Cardio & Abs session, as well as a bust night shift at work (Bren can support that fact!).
Details of my Back & Delts session are below.
My cardio session involved a 20 min session on the stepper, 20 min session on the cross-trainer & 10 mins on the treadmill.
I used an interval method on the stepper, manually increasing the level every 3 mins to the highest level for 1 minute.
On the cross trainer, i kept the intensity constant at a moderately-high intensity & the treadmill was a brisk walk on a 15% incline.
Abdominal training consisted of 4 exercises, 25 repetitions on each in a cycle. I also practised some hanging tensing exercises, squeezing the abdominals hard & flexing the obliques for 10-15 seconds.
This is much tougher than you would realise, try it next time you train you abdominals.
Exercises were as follows
Hanging Leg Raises
Hanging Oblique Raises
Rope Pulldown Crunches
