Super Fit In 8 Weeks

advertisement
This eight-week workout plan is designed by two-time Everest climber Adele Pennington, mountaineering legend Conrad Ankerill and fitness trainer Eric Viskovicz. Each exercise, from step machine workouts, lat pull-downs, shoulder press exercises, to crunches, has been designed to help you build big muscle and improve your cardiovascular fitness. Viskovicz says. “The physical gains should be a 20 per cent increase in VO2 max. And with the proper nutrition, the climber will have increased muscle mass by 1kg to 3kg,” he adds.

Day 1 to 14
The workouts below will shock your muscles into action, trim your waistline and increase your VO2 max, says Viskovicz. (If your gym doesn’t have a climbing machine, just use a step machine instead.)

to strengthen and work the core. This is followed by a cool down and p90x stretch. During this workout , I averaged in the high 120s bpm and insanity peaked around 170 bpm. I wanted to provide this comparison, but the reality is the two p90x workouts were designed for two different purposes. P90X Cardio X is a supplemental workout that can be used to add a moderate workout to wholesale hip hop abs P90X Classic or as a reduced workout if you are not ready or need a p90x break from P90X Plyometrics
