Strength Training Plan April & May

Here’s the workouts I’ll do in April and May.

Aiming for three strength workouts a week, but some weeks I’ll do two when other things get in the way (like last week, where rest was required on Monday).

I’ll aim to do do strength training on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and I’ll aim to run on Tuesday, Thursday and one day at the weekend.

Below is where I’m at with the weights, and I’ll aim to increase the weights (or reps) as the weeks go on. I’ll do this for the next 6 weeks, then see where I’m at:

I’ll do Bike HIIT after the workouts, 8×20:10s, with a warm up and cool down, totalling around 8 minutes.

I’ll take a my protein pre workout in fruit punch flavour before the workout, and think about eating more protein each day to help recover and fill me up. It’s a potent little concoction and turns pink when mixed. Ooft!!

Here’s the link to it… https://www.myprotein.com/sports-nutrition/the-pre-workout/11351672.html?variation=11351676 (check out the nutritional information on that page).

(If you do order it, make sure you look out for any voucher codes like BEST which cuts the price by a third at the moment… )

Let’s see what all that does for me in April and May.
