While spending time in a bikini is not an unusual activity for me in the summer in Vienna, my up coming holiday to Tunisia has given me a goal to work towards in terms of going to the gym.
I've been going to the gym for a few months now, and I've found a regime that really seems to work for me. Who knew that as an adult I'd really enjoy circuit training, the bane of PE lessons as a teenager?
My routine consists of the following:
5 minutes warm up on the cross trainer
15 leg presses
15 on the abductor machine
15 on the adductor machine
3 minutes on the stationary bike as fast as I can
15 on the chest press
15 on the lat pull down
15 on the reverse butterfly (I hate this machine)
4 minutes on the stepper as fast as I can
20 dorsal raises
15 side raises on each side
5 minutes on the cross trainer as fast as I can
On each machine I challenge myself to use the heaviest weights I can, and every fortnight I aim to increase the weight.
I try to go 3 times a week, and in between eat healthily. I actually find it easier to eat healthily in the winter, well, I find it easier to not drink as much, which is my biggest downfall!
So far this routine has been really working for me, and I can see the difference in my shape, and the best thing is that I don't get bored!
What is your work out regime?
