    These Workout Routines will concentrate on isolating the targeted Muscle Group using specific Exercises, these are more challenging and will assist you in developing further towards your Fitness and Health Goals.

    Your chosen Aerobic Exercise would have increased, to be approximately 45 – 60 minutes in duration by this stage. I would recommend that you perform your Aerobic Exercise at least 3 times a week. This will maintain your fantastic fitness level and any extra that you can fit in would be a great advantage.

    To add variety and to keep your Motivation and Enthusiasm high, you can experiment with some different Training Principles. Your body has a capacity for what is termed ”Muscle Memory” this refers to the fact that your body becomes accustom to the Exercises or Resistance (Work Load) placed upon it and has no need to adapt or change.

    Therefore to counteract this phenomenon all you need to do is change your Training Principle, approximately every 4 – 6 weeks to keep your Muscles guessing.

    Now that you have progressed this far, I suggest that a mandatory Stretching Routine be incorporated into your Warm-up and Cool-down phases of your routine to,

  • Decrease the incidence of Muscle Soreness.
  • Increase your Flexibility.
  • Assist the Muscles to work through a Full Range of Motion (R.O.M).
