An upper and lower body workout

An upper and lower body workout

This week, I realised that I haven’t posted a workout for a ridiculously long time. Seeing as I’m in the midst of a hectic travel schedule at the moment (and I’m horribly sick – boo!), I’m going to cheat by sharing a couple of workouts from previous newsletters.

I’m heading to Guatemala this Sunday, and I’ve been told that my internet access will be a little sketchy for the next month or so. I still plan to blog as normal, but I may take a little longer than usual to reply to emails, so please bear with me!

We have a 10 hour layover in LA on Sunday. I had no idea Venice Beach was so close to the airport, so that’s where we’ll be hanging out. Apart from perving on hotties exploring business opportunities in Gold’s Gym and eating In-N-Out burgers, we have no plans. If you have any suggestions, I’m all ears!

The following two workouts involve training the main lifts in a way that is designed to increase strength, while the accessory exercises are arranged with more of a hypertrophy/fat loss focus.

For the squat, deadlift and bench press, you will be working at a percentage of your one rep max (so you will need a calculator!). These sets should be of moderate to hard difficulty, where you feel as though you could achieve one to two further reps before hitting failure.

Unless otherwise specified, rest for 60 to 90 seconds between each set.

Let me know if you try them!
