Workout 1

I am currently going to the gym 4 times a week (among other things; running, classes etc). I have two different programmes both which I carry out twice in the week. I'll run these programmes for four weeks before changing them up again. It has been quite a while since I have used a gym consistently, other than going through Body Pump chore in it, as I enjoy running and am a class freak not much of a gym bunny anymore, but I am getting back into it and am actually really enjoying it. I'm still on my Christmas holidays from Uni so I have the pleasure of using the latest LifeFitness gym equipment in the Eastbourne David Lloyd Club. 

Workout 1 is a 'pushing' programme where the resistance exercises focus on pushing. Workout 2 focuses on 'pulling'.
