My Workout Routine

I don’t claim my workout routine is the best or anything of the sort for that matter, but, I do trust my routine! It has got me results for years. Well… When I say it works, it means if I get noticeably stronger in a short space of time.

Anyway, getting to the point. I tend to start off my workouts with a 20 minute warm up with some form of cardio. More often than not, I’ll just jump on a treadmill or the elliptical. Depends on how hardcore I’m feeling or how much I want to lose weight (the elliptical is always easier!).

After doing a fairly easy warm-up, I’ll go and train a specific muscle group. Usually, muscle groups that train the same sort of area. All of my exercises are done with 1 warm up set and 3 normal sets of 6-8 repetitions.

After I have done the exercises for the day. I tend to warm down by hitting the battle ropes or by skipping (jump rope) for 10 minutes. If I can’t do that, then I will go and use the rowing machine for 10-15 minutes.

Sunday is always a rest day! I’m not religious but come on, it’s a must!

My personal thoughts on my routine

Personally, I think my routine needs jigging a little bit. It works great for strength, but it takes me a while to actually lose weight. Today I am going to begin a journey, working towards a slimmer body with Jim Stoppani’s 6-week Shortcut to Shred.

I have heard great things about this workout routine, many people see results out of it. I thought, why not give it a go? Hopefully, I can implement a few of his tricks into my own workout.

If anybody has tried this workout, or something similar, please feel free to share your thoughts. I’d love to know how you got on!
