My training consists of mostly resistance training (lifting weights, or using body weight exercises) as well as some additional cardio. I will almost always perform my cardio fasted first thing in the morning, with my resistance training sessions always taking place later in the day, after I have eaten at least 2 meals.
One of the things I hear most often from people is how “easy” it must be for me to keep fit, or stay in shape, or whatever fitness goals the person I am talking to may have for themselves, but struggle to achieve. The perception that working in a gym makes it so much easier to achieve these goals, in my opinion anyway, couldn’t be further from the truth.
As promised in last month’s blog on my own nutrition, this month I am going to give you a more in depth look into my own training. So again lets set the background, I had recently suffered a pretty extreme injury, and after an MRI the diagnosis wasn’t looking good. 2 slipped discs and a torn gluteus maximums meant I wasn’t able to train myself, or even my clients for a short period of time, but I took every step possible to aid and speed up my recovery.
Rest days and overtraining are two topics which often cause endless hours of debate within the fitness industry. Some trainers, gurus and coaches will insist upon multiple rest days in a week and short duration sessions of under 45 minutes. While there is also advocates for twice daily training sessions last 2 hours or more.
