The original plan I laid out in Week 2 wasn’t working for me. So I followed it through all the reps and set ranges to a natural conclusion. It was overly complicated and some weeks were just taking too long. I like to be in and out of a Gym within 45 minutes max. So I have simplified my plan.
This is the new plan, I will give it 5 weeks before seeing if I need to adapt it.
For weighted exercises, I will keep the sets and reps the same for each exercise, yet I will have different sets for various exercises. I will progressively overload by increasing the weight. For body-weight exercises, I will keep the sets the same but try to increase the reps.
The gym I use is just a small local Gym, so I had some issues getting on the right equipment on the right days. So whilst I have split the below plan into 3 workouts, I am going to be flexible with them. My aim is to complete all the below exercises in the week, it doesn’t matter if I have to move them around a bit.
You will notice there are no chest or shoulder exercises in this plan. This is because I am actively building up to my Press Up challenges. So I am doing press-ups every morning, so I want to be fresh for those. The initial challenges are 50 in a row, 100 a day for 30 days and strict 1 arm push-ups. I have also included Calves every workout. This is because my Calves are a weak point, especially for my running. So I am going to really concentrate on them for a while. The single-leg workouts I am doing are also running specific. I do need to increase my strength in my legs, but I also need to limit any potential imbalances. Hence the single leg work.
