#abzski fitness - my workout routine

1 April 2015

You may be aware that the time has finally come, I'm off skiing right now (maybe even as you're reading this). It seems as though I've been preparing for this holiday for a long time and it's true because I've been trying to get myself back into shape for the mountain. Seeing as I tool a fall down the stairs almost 2 years ago and damaged my coxis it's been important for my to strengthen my back, alongside this I've felt the need to strengthen my knees, my legs generally and increase my stamina so I thought I'd show you some parts to my workout regime.


I don't work out on specific days of the week, sometimes I feel as though I should dedicate certain days in order to keep a better regime going but things get in the way of that so I just do my best to work out 3-4 times a week instead, whenever that may be. I always exercise for atleast an hour, the full length depens on the type of workout I'm doing.

cycling
I've been working my way up on distance for cycling rather than time spent because from my perspective I think it's easy for you to go slow for an hour and do nothing useful than do so many kilometers, at least then you're 'traveling' a good distance and know you're doing something - providing you work at it of course. I began with 5k on my exercise bike when I got back into this regime, then 10k then 15k and am currently sat at 20k each time but as my time improves for this distance I'll add another 5 kilometers again.

abs and legs circuit
This is what I find the hardest and feel the most benefit from, I have a number of workout apps that I began using at the start and still do from time to time if I'm pushing myself to fit in a quick workout. I do selections of squats, leg raises, lunges, calf raises, planks, wall squats, crunches, sit-ups, star jumps and I've started introducing burpees and other variants of simple exercises. I've also introduced a kettlebell to this work out which I'll increase the weight of when it becomes comfortable - that way I'm forever improving the work out that I do. two apps that I've found help me out from time to time are the daily cardio workout and daily ab workout, they're available on iOS but I'm not sure about other operating systems.


That's it from me, hope you're all well speak soon! :)
