My training is very simple. I have set goals that I must get. Some are short term and others long term. These days I am not driven by wanting to lift the most in a certain movement like a squat. Now it’s about being a better mover overall and getting more out of my training. All while not neglecting strength. My training has become a place where I clear my mind so that I can digest my thoughts. I sit a lot because of studies and work. So my mobility work is important. My relaxation time, is the time that I spend on myself. It may be getting lost in a game, reading articles or just doing nothing letting my mind rest. Essentially just switching off.
I have set out minimum times that I spend in certain areas of my day:
Mobility: 15 mins
Training: 1 hour (which can be 30mins of lifting and 30mins of cardio)
Relaxing: 30 mins
These are set in place to keep myself in check. Also make my day easier to plan, having a few set Things that happens in my day.
My training program:
Mondays and Wednesdays:
Is my lower body intensive training with upper body rehab movements as active rest
Tuesdays and Thursdays:
Is my upper body intensive training with lower body rehab movements as active rest
Is Yoke day / Fun day I do whatever I feel like, that makes me happy.
I do rehab type things to work on weak links, keep injury free and also to keep me moving throughout the session. My lower body work consists of squat variations mostly. At the moment I am doing Zercher squat as I wanted a change. I do single leg work after the main movement. My upper body work is a range of movements from military press to high incline bench, it depends on day.
I do cardio type things which comprises of slam ball rounds, Kettlebell rounds and my slow cardio of cycling (Stationary bike).
Some main movements I do:
So the aim of my training is to stay healthy (physically and mentally). Be practical and just being a better person who wants to get more out of life.
