COMMIT TO FIT

MR PMA

Mr Positive Mental Attitude, PW Elite Trainer, Barry’s Bootcamp Trainer and all-over good guy, let us introduce you to Faisal.

For those who have met him, his attitude and ridiculously positive life outlook is infectious, and he applies his can-do approach to his daily life, and training, routines. We feel like he’s the perfect person to kick-start our Commit To Fit series, a range of exclusive workouts which have been designed by our PW Pros to help get you into shape, and to make the transition into a healthy lifestyle easier. Which is pretty much the only easy thing about these workouts.

All workouts have been designed to provide you with a quick full body blast, that will easily fit into a spare 30 minutes of the day. Be sure to keep checking back, as every week we will be launching a new workout from a different member of our team of Pros to always keep your workouts fun and varied.

WORKOUT 1

The first workout in the series consists of prisoner squats, walkouts, push ups and mountain climbers. Four exercises to work every muscle and raise the heart rate to help burn fat.

Perform each exercise for 45 seconds followed by 15 seconds rest. Repeat the whole circuit 4 - 6 times. Don't forget to warm up before you start!

Prisoner Squats Exercise

PRISONER SQUATS

Place your hands behind your head, feet shoulder width apart and drop down into a deep squat (seated position), ensuring your weight falls into your heels rather than your toes. Stand back up and squeeze your glutes as you do.

Prisoner Squats Exercise

WALKOUTS

Start standing in a neutral position, drop your chest to your knees and place your hands out in front of you once you reach the floor. From this bent over position, walk your hands out until you end up in a plank position. Hold, and repeat the steps backwards to a standing position to complete one rep.

Prisoner Squats Exercise

PUSH UPS

Position your body into a plank position, with your arms in line with your shoulders. From this position, drop your elbows and bring your chest as close to the floor as possible. Extend back up into the plank position as one rep. If this becomes too hard, keep your upper body the same but drop your knees to the ground for the remainder of the time.

Prisoner Squats Exercise

MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS

Start in a straight-arm plank position, with hands placed straight forward in line with shoulders. From this position, bring your knee to your chest, and drop it back down. Repeat for the other side. Do this in quick succession for the amount of time.
