Advanced Plan: Week 3

Conditioning Session x1

This week you'll be performing 25 minutes of cardio, again trying to cover as much distance as possible in the given time. Try a different form of cardio to what you picked for the first 2 weeks. Just remember, it needs to be measurable. Start your session with a warm up and finish with a cool down. Keep track of this week's distance.

Strength Workouts x3

We're adding some new movements this week so take your time getting used to them and remember you can add dumbbells to increase difficulty if you are finding workouts too easy. Don't forget to warm up and cool down in each session.

Exercise Instructions

Renegade Row

Start from the push up position and pull your left hand toward your chest. Try to keep everything else solid and hips square to the floor, so only your hand is moving. Lower in a slow and controlled motion and repeat on the opposite side. Keep your core braced throughout. You can add dumbbells to this if you want to increase difficulty.

Jumping Lunges

Start in a split squat position so one leg out to the front with leg bent and back leg extended as if you have performed a lunge. Lunge up and jump switching your legs so that the back leg comes to the front and visa versa. Drop back into lunge position and repeat.

Mountain Climber

From a push up position with weight rested on hands and toes begin tucking your knees toward your chest back and forth. Hands should be directly under your shoulders throughout. Take your time until you are comfortable with the movements.

Push Up

Rest your weight on your hands and knees so that your hands are directly under your shoulders and you have a straight line from your knee to your shoulder. Squeeze your core to protect you lower back as you slowly lower your chest toward the floor. Exhale and push yourself back to the starting position.
