Phase 2 – Strength Weeks 9-11 Metabolic My review – day 2

 

We began this sesssion with stretches then quickly moved onto the metabolic workout. Sam explained that we weren’t going to go flat out on this workout, as we were going to save this for Phase 3. The metabolic workout is to build our fitness and fat burning metabolisms,working 30 seconds on (at moderate intensity)and then 30 seconds off (increased intensity).

We did:

  • jogging on the spot for 30 seconds, then quick sprints for 30 seconds

  • speed skater moves from side to side for 30 seconds, then speed skater moves with a hop and tapping back (my favourite exercise)

  • punches high and low with squats, 4 punches 30 seconds, 2 punches 30 seconds – all with squats (lost a bit of coordination on this one)

  • side steps 30 seconds then hopping for 30 seconds

  • High knees 30 seconds, adding in a chop for 30 seconds

  • Power knee lifts with pivots 30 seconds, with a hop for 30 seconds

  • Heel digs 30 seconds, then heel digs fast for 30 seconds

  • Shuffle forward and then back for 30 seconds,then jump forward and shuffle back for 30 seconds

  • Leg drives with knee up and then behind for 30 seconds, then adding in a hop for 30 seconds (we did two sets one on each leg)

  • Jacks with baby squats 30 seconds, with hop 30 seconds

  • Butt kicks with arms 30 seconds, then butt kicks with an arm reach for 30 seconds

  • Plank exercises lifting one elbow for 30 seconds, pushups for 30 seconds (can do this exercise on knees until you’re more advanced – I did this)  Bit hard to describe this one need to be doing it!

  • Squats with isometric hold 30 seconds and then squats with knee lifts for 30 seconds

  • Back exercise, reaching back with elbows for 30 seconds then same again adding in a jump and punch forward for 30 seconds

At the end of the metabolic workout I felt like I’d had a good exercise session and really enjoyed it. I could feel my heart rate up during the exercises which I’m sure must mean that I’m doing a bit of fat burning. The exercises felt good as bringing in lots of different body parts, exercising arms, abs, quads, hammys, backs and shoulders.  I needed to have a few drinks in between sets of exercise, so I had my Herbalife 24 Hydrate, also a good idea to have some Herbalife 24 Prolong which gives you extra carbohydrates for intense activity.
