There’s many ways to skin a cat
Not sure which sick person came up with that saying
But anyways back to what you should be doing in the gym
Firstly keep it simple
Think more in terms of movement than specific exercises.
If it feels and looks wrong it’s probably doing more harm than good.
Technique first my friend.
So what do you need to be doing in a session?
No need to over complicate the situation
Basics work and more importantly get results!
We can talk reps and sets another day.
Try and avoid the funny looking machines.
Your body is designed to move freely not sit on a machine and bash out chest presses.
A quick little re cap
You need to be squatting, pushing, pulling, lunging and bracing during a session at least 3 times/week.
Mix in some low intensity walking
The odd run
and if you’re feeling brave enough
Find a hill and run to the top.
Can’t neglect the heart and lungs!
