Randy's Quick-Start 7-Day Training Routine.

Just getting back to the gym after a lengthy lay-off? Or maybe your metabolism slowed down. Try my 'quick-start' 7-day training routine to 'jump-start' your metabolism for getting back to your own routine.
Just getting back to the gym after a lengthy lay-off? Or maybe your metabolism slowed down in just a short couple of weeks and in the process you've surprisingly gained some additional and unwanted fat! Either case you need to try my "quick-start" 7-day training routine to "jump-start" your metabolism for getting back your endurance, strength, high-voltage energy and increasing in fitness (in that order for most individuals)!

Do the following routine for 7 consecutive days followed by 5 days of rest except for cardio. I know what you are thinking: overtraining. But that's what you want, and in addition to an increased metabolism! Your 5 days of rest will help your whole body recover so it "bounces-back" to making new gains in endurance, strength, muscle when you resume training by following your own routine or choosing from one of my own (depending on your level of fitness and goal) on my main articles page.

This Routine Is Broken Down Into Four Parts:

  1. Abs and upper body warm-up
  2. Lower body
  3. Cardio
  4. Upper body

Sets for large body parts consist of 4 sets, whereas small body parts are in the ball park of 2-3. Keep your rep range between 10-20 reps on each set. The only exception is your couple sets of squats for 6 reps. This routine should take 60 minutes.

The Routine

Abs and Upper Body Warm-up:

Lower Body:

Cardio (to increase motivation to energize your upper body workout):

  • My chosen mode is the treadmill for 2 laps or 1/2 mile at 4 mph for about 7 minutes

Upper Body:

Supplement Recommendation:

  • 6 grams of creatine each before and after the workout
  • O.J. mixed with my favorite protein supplement after the workout!
  • Optional: 1 or 2 servings (2 or 4 capsules) of Xenadrine split in the mid-AM and mid-PM but never before a workout or immediately after!

Thanks,
