Quick at home cardio

After a long day and commuting I do not need performing cardio to be long or laborious… so, having taken a bit of inspo from Mr. Ben West (@benwestfit, see photo!) I just smashed out a quick “8 minute and 8 second” mini session in the kitchen. Best of all, no equipment was needed at…

Back to glory

I’ve been reading lots of chat about people having a “bad back” recently.

Over the years I’ve found that the shoulders react really well to high levels of lactic acid. So, very little rest and tri/giant sets it is… Warm up: 5 minutes skipping 1. Grab…

So, here’s my workout for today: Warm up: WattBike – 5 minutes, progressively increasing intensity Leg Extension x15 Supersetted (SS) Lying Leg curl x15 (3 sets) 45sec Rest…
