Christmas has been and gone, my kids are back to school and as life returns to normal,I thought it'd be a good time to start a training log and implement a few changes I've been planning for a while. My main aim is to draw up a plan to expand on my current home routine and integrate a couple of new elements;a morning pre-work stretching session and a weights programme(I'm going to post a separate thread for detailed advice on this in the weightlifting forum). Tueday and Thursday evening and Saturday afternoon I'm training at class so this is supplementary to that,with the overall aim of keeping myself fit and healthy for work and to keep the dreaded middle age spread at bay! Running,skipping and bagwork are the bulk of my home fitness routine but I feel it needs to be more structured and hopefully a log will help me with a more disciplined approach. Today was what I plan on being a new daily basic plan; 6am Stretching 10mins;Head up/down ,left/right, roll anti-clockwise,clockwise shoulders forward,backwards left arm " " right " " " both arms together one fwd,one bk,then reverse circle waist anti-clockwise,clockwise Knees,legs apart " " " " together " " " Ankles/wrists " " " floor stretching legs/back Ba Duan Jin (breathing/meditation exercise) 15mins 5.30pm 30 mins walk with dogs (normally a run,weather/light permitting) 5mins skipping(varied routine)5 mins shadowbox 5mins " " " 5 mins on bag I'm aiming to keep this basic structure and add to it which hopefully will get easier as the days get longer.The main addition will be some weight training with the aim of toning up and building upper body strength. As some background information I'm currently 5' 9", 10st 13lbs,body fat 15%, ideally I'd like to get this to around 10st 6lb, body fat 11%. Any thoughts or advice would be welcome.
