With the predicatability of the new school term starting as discussed this week, its absolutely no reason to be predictable and boring with your exercise programme.
You may have heard that one needs to change your programme every 12 weeks, but this is too limiting in my view.
You are only limited by your imagination when it comes to designing your workout, and what apparatus, if any, you end up using to reach your goals.
I love doing weight training but it doesn’t need to end there.
I like to throw in a lot of balance and instability work, meaning you really get to work your core in a very deep way, and this helps you get deep down into your muscle, and this is how you really get a strong stomach and back, which is absolutely needed to perform well in just about anything!!!
I love to do speed and agility work. Nothing worse and more boring than going on long, flat runs with no scenery to keep you interested. I love the short and sharper stuff, and getting more agile is what everyone should be interested in. The more agile you are, the better you perform in daily life, meaning less back pain, more core strength and power and you can create an unbelievable amount of energy into your life through this form of training too!!
If you have a look outside our gym by burry port railway station, you will see great big tractor tyres, which are excellent to flip, you will see sledghammers which are great to bash into tyres, you will see hurdles, cones and agility markers, you will see parachutes and harnesses, in fact all sorts of stuff to keep your variety at the very maximum, which also serves to keep interest at very good levels too.
There has never been a more exciting to train and get fit!!
