Super Fit In 8 Weeks

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.)
