Focus on strength training, 2-3 resistance workouts per week. 2 high intensity cycle sessions per week to maintain aerobic adaptations.

Sample Day 1

Mobility Assessment

All exercises are to be videoed from the front and side at right angles. Email these files to me for review and storage. They will direct the priority/ area of body focus for the workouts, and form an important record for future reference.

Manage your own progression regarding weight lifted. Also ensure correct technique, lower weight with good technique is best.

Do not decrease repetitions! To increase intensity, reduce the rest interval between sets or increase weight or increase sets.

Note: If you feel tingling, numbness or acute pain stop and seek advise before continuing.
