Strength Training in March

True to my word to Ken the king of the Kelvin… I got a simple strength workout plan together. Based on 2-3 workouts a week, I’ll also do running and bike workouts. It was a bit of a struggle getting out of bed for the two this week, but I managed it, just. And felt good for them.

Here’s the plan for my strength sessions (which should take 35-45 mins). I just need to get early nights and some good sleeps, so I’m able to get up early to do them before work. I’ll put some Bike HIIT sessions in there too at points when I’m back on it all.

I’ll do bodyweight strength if I’m away from my gym. Simple workouts, compound movements, like Squats, Press Ups, Burpees etc.

Workout Day 1 –

– Squats 4×8/8/10/10 37/32kg
