Sample Week of Training

Below is a week of training from this plan which represents the type of workouts you will be doing.

Strength Training - The Sufferfest - SUF Strength - Beginner Level 2 Session A

Equipment Needed - Two water bottles filled as much as you feel is appropriate - Mat or something to place under your knee.

Welcome to Beginner Level 2, Session A. You should have completed the Level 1 sessions several times by now and mastered the foundation moves with perfect form. Now, we're going to add further variations to those moves in order to keep challenging you (just wait until you try out these new side planks). We'll also increase the duration of a few sets -- such as the squats -- so you can get a few more reps in. As with all the strength training routines, it helps if you've done a warm-up before getting started. That can be one of your favourite yoga routines, riding your bike on the trainer for 5-10 minutes or doing a personal stretching routines.

Planned: 16:46

Strength Training - The Sufferfest - SUF Strength - Beginner Level 1 Session B

Equipment Needed - Empty water bottle - Mat or something for under your knee.

This is session B in Beginner Level 1. In this session we'll introduce you to the rest of the foundation moves. Since you're already getting stronger, we'll take one of the moves you've already learned -- hip hinges -- and give it a little twist by adding in a reach. While the difference is subtle, the demands of the move are quite different. As you'll see, all the moves you learn in Level 1 will progress in a similar fashion going forward. We're building strength, but also fine-tuning your nervous system. As with all the strength training routines, it helps if you've done a warm-up before getting started. That can be one of your favourite yoga routines, riding your bike on the trainer for 5-10 minutes or doing a personal stretching routines.

Planned: 12:09
