The Programme, week 5: Trainer's comments on Simon

Click to follow

Neil Price: Last week was tough for Simon. He was looking forward to having more time to devote to his exercise this week, also having joined a gym.

Unfortunately, Simon was called away on business and has been away for most of this week, but he still managed a 40-minute run last weekend and was able to squeeze in some exercise whilst away.

Simon?s bodyfat has dropped again and the run will have helped to keep his body working hard. Keeping to a routine even just once per week is enough to maintain his achievements in the short term.

Simon has been given a weights programme to follow in the gym after The Programme has finished. We will increase the intensity of Simon's running sessions for next week by increasing his hard intervals. Simon will continue with the same gym programme as last week, but this time he will aim for 2-3 sets of each exercise and monitor his rest so that he only has a strict 30 seconds recovery.
