This workout draws on the principles of functional training. Functional training focuses on multi -plane movement and working in ways you were biologically made to. This means that the movements are more natural to your body which helps you get great results in less time than traditional weight training. It also mixes both cardio and strength components to get your heart rate up but also maximise post workout burn. It is one of our favourite forms of training and we hope you love this week's workout - it's designed to blast fat away, getting you a step closer to your ideal bikini body.
THIS WEEK'S TIPS
Track your progress
with before and after shots - it can be very disheartening to work your butt off for several weeks and see no results! It can be hard to notice small changes when you look in the mirror everyday, but by comparing a picture of yourself from when you started you can really notice the changes! Make sure you take a before shot this week!
How much water you drink can have a big impact on how well you perform, how your body holds and distributes weight, your energy levels and overall vitality - If you're ramping up your training then increase your water intake too! Try and have around 3L each day.
Who doesn't want to feel bikini confident for Summer - grab a friend and do the workout together - match each others reps and have a mini competition - you'll be working harder than on your own in no time!
Now this is our favourite! It's easier to reach your goals when motivated by a reward - now whilst thinking of your new bikini ready body may be reward enough, some of us need a little extra motivation! We suggest picking a small reward each week and then a big reward once you're done! - As it is week one why not reward yourself with some new gym gear to make getting up to do that workout a little easier!
