Train like an Athlete, look like an Athlete!
Today I decided to take a little peek into my favorite exercise book: The Women’s Health Big Book of Exercise. After a few “lazy” week, I thought that it might be fun to give myself a little push in the butt, and challenge myself with one of the workouts suggested in this manual. For some reason, this particular workout caught my eye, especially with its catchy slogan “Train like an athlete, look like an athlete”! Let’s cut to the chase and take a look at what this monster is all about!
Intro to “The Best Sports Workout”
There’s a popular notion that if you train like an athlete, you’ll look like an athlete. And it’s true. That’s why I asked Mike Boyle, CSCS, one of the world’s top sport performance coaches, to create a workout that’ll enhance your game and your figure. The end result: You’ll look as fit as a tennis pro – even if you never step foot on a court.
How to do this workout?
Do Workout A & B once a week, on consecutive days. Then rest for a day or two, and do workout C and D on consecutive days. Rest for a day or two again, and start over the following week.
Note that the exercises in each workout is preceded by a number and letter. Each number indicates that the exercise is to be performed as a group of exercises (ex. 1A + 1B). Do one set of the listed exercises (ex. 1A), rest for the prescribed amount of time (ex. 30sec.), and then do one set of the next exercise in the group (ex. 1B). Repeat until you have completed all of your sets for each exercise (ex. 3 sets), and then move on to the next group of exercises (ex. 2A, 2B, 2C) by following the same procedure.
