Weekly Workout Plan

Disclaimer

Make sure you are safe doing these workouts. We have workouts aimed at various ability levels, so if you find one too difficult to do properly, swap it to an easier one.

What is it good for?

Getting outside, general fitness and strength.

Equipment needed

A local park, stopwatch and couple of markers (t-shirts/towels/hats etc will do).

Format

Ascending ladder circuit.

Instructions

We are allowed back outside to exercise after the COVID 19 lockdown! So find your local park and give this a go!

Use a towel/t shirt/hat etc as a marker, and mark 2 points x20 strides apart. These are your 2 workstations. This workout consists of x5 rounds, each round you do against the clock, as fast as you can. Then have x1-2 minute breather between rounds.

The workout is nice and simple as follows:

Shuttle run from one marker to the other, completing a single exercise at each marker (so run to Marker A and do the first exercise. Run to Marker B and do the second exercise. Run to Marker A and do the third exercise etc).

Continue until you have completed each exercise. For different rounds, you will complete a different number of reps per exercise.

  • Round 1 – complete x2 reps per exercise.
  • Round 2 – complete x4 reps per exercise.
  • Round 3 – complete x6 reps per exercise.
  • Round 4 – complete x8 reps per exercise.
  • Round 5 – complete x10 reps per exercise.

Don’t forget to do each round as fast as you can and have a 1-2 minute rest between rounds. The exercises to do each round are as follows:
