Looking for a new workout challenge this September?
You’re in the right place! I’ve got a brand new challenge lined up for you and I hope you’re ready to work hard! This month’s challenge focuses on building strength through a number of isolation exercises. In each workout, you’ll work different groups of opposing muscles and perform exercises in supersets or tri-sets. For example, in a superset, you’d do exercise A, then B, then rest. Then repeat A and B, then rest again. I’ll specify the number of reps and sets in each workout, and you’ll notice that the reps are lower than in previous challenges. This is because the goal is to lift heavier – and build a little muscle!
By the end of September, you’ll have 4 routines that can be done one after the other in the same week. For example, you could do Workout 1 on Monday, Workout 2 on Tuesday, 3 on Wednesday, and 4 on Thursday. That’s 4 days of strength training all planned for you – all you need to do is print the workouts!
A new workout will be released each Friday, beginning on August 31st. They can be added into your usual fitness regime twice per week, on non-consecutive days. Be sure to make time for some sort of cardio before or after your lifting session, and always remember to stretch the muscles you’ve worked when you’re finished.
As always, I love your feedback so please don’t hesitate to send it my way!
