How to use this workout programme.

Do not start with this work-out if you have not done any training before. You must have worked out to some level, either by doing the General Work-out for several weeks, or by having worked out yourself in a gym or at home.

 

Perform the list of activities in the written order.

When you are doing the exercises, click on the link for each exercise, the exercise page opens in a new window. Watch the video and read the exercise description, then perform the exercise. Close the window and click on the link for the next exercise.

By the time you have repeated the workout several times, you may find that you no longer need to watch the videos. Then you only need to use the workout menu as a reminder of which exercises to combine.
