I often get asked about my workout schedule and what I can tell you is that I really listen to my body and adjust my frequency and intensity accordingly.
In my University days, I used to exercise for at least two hours and would sometimes return to the gym twice a day.
I thought I was fit. Now I’ve learned that optimum fitness is irrelative to the number of days or hours spent in the gym.
It’s all about balance, quality, intensity, and more importantly, recovery!
Today’s workout is a really intense “fight or flight” workout and should only be incorporated into your routine maybe once or twice per week.
Do this when you’re full of energy as you will be pushing your body with maximum effort.
Workouts such as these have shown to release growth hormones and turn your body into a fat burning machine so they are quite effective for those wanting to shed body fat.
One tip for the sprints… imagine that you’re running for your life! It is literally a max-effort sprint for 30 seconds.
If you don’t have a treadmill, just sprint on the spot and GO GO GO GO GO as hard as you can.
This is advanced, so if you’re not used to running on a treadmill, do it on the floor for safety reasons.
As always, make sure you warm-up for a few minutes before the workout and don’t forget to stretch afterwards.
