Advanced Plan: Week 5

You are 4 weeks into the plan so it's a great time to take stock of the progress you've made so far. A lot of our confidence comes from seeing the progress we've made in the past. Maybe you completed all 16 workouts over the last 4 weeks, or maybe you missed a few. Either way, you're getting a little better every session and we're proud of you.

Conditioning Session

For the next 4 weeks find an activity that gets you working your cardio whilst having fun. It might be 5 a side football, dancing, a martial art, a hike or you might just choose to stick with the cardio you did before. Whatever it is you are going have fun and keep us up to date on social media using the hash tag #LiveWell.
