Are you unsure of how to start a home workout programme? Or how to start a running programme? Maybe you want to combine the two but don’t know how. Well, worry no more because I’ve put together a bullet proof Bodyweight circuit & Running Guide just for you guys.
At the risk of coming to the party two weeks late into the Corona Virus it has been my observation and also concern that many people young and old are taking to the concrete streets to enjoy their hour of exercise, and running with no real plan of what to do and how to progress.
Athletes– I’m concerned for my athletes because running 5kms is probably not the best way to preserve lean muscle mass and fast twitch muscle fibre properties.
Out of shape general population– I’m concerned for my friends and relatives who have suddenly turned into a weekend warrior without any background in or build up to running.
Bodyweight circuit guide– I’ve put a menu of nearly 100 of my favourite bodyweight exercises into one guide, and I’ve conveniently split them into Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels.
Rather than me creating several different programmes over the next few weeks (and maybe months) I’d rather just ‘teach you to fish’ by giving you a basic structure (6 exercises- pick your work period, 30, 45 or 60-seconds, with the corresponding difficulty of exercise) and off you go.
This is the game changer for me. Not everyone is at the same point on their running journey, so I’ve prepared a Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced plan as well.
A beginner– someone who is going to build up to running 30 minutes without stopping
An intermediate– will incorporate higher intensity efforts using intervals and Fartlek
An advanced runner– will incorporate near maximal efforts into their running programme
