2 Instructions Functional Strength Workouts Do workouts 2 3 times per week alternating between Workout A and Workout B. For example, if you are working out 3 times per week, in week 1 you will do A,B,A, then in week 2 you will do B,A,B. Ideally you will have a rest day between each functional strength workout (however you can perform cardio workouts on these days). Never skip the Dynamic Warm-up or Recovery / Stretches, as this will increase the likelihood of injury. If you are pressed for time, cut down on the strength exercises in the middle part of the workout instead (eg do 1 set instead of 2). Workouts are broken into supersets. A superset is where you complete consecutive exercises with little to no rest in between. You then rest after the superset is completed before repeating the superset another time (so you have done each exercise twice). Eg In Workout A; do exercise 1a and 1b consecutively, then rest and complete the superset again. After you have completed the superset twice, move onto superset 2. Rest periods between supersets should be approximately 60 seconds. Perform all strength exercises in a controlled manner (1-2 seconds each movement of the exercise), eg Stability Ball Push-ups 2 seconds to lower your body and 1 second to push back up. Choose a weight that is challenging. You shouldn t be able to do more than one or two more repetitions at the end of a set. Concentrate on perfect technique 6 reps with perfect form are better than 8 sloppy reps.

3 Cardio Workouts Do cardio workouts 2 3 times per week. Cardio workouts can be completed on the same day as Functional Strength workouts or on the off days. For cardio workouts you can do either an interval workout, play a sport (extreme sport or other), or do a cardiovascular activity of your own choice for mins. Try and do at least one interval workout each week. There are two interval workouts to choose from Level 1 and Level 2. The level 2 workout is more challenging than the Level 1 workout. The interval workouts are a mix of high intensity intervals and recovery periods. For example if you chose running as your activity for Interval Workout Level 1, you would run hard for 30 seconds followed by 90 seconds of jogging / walking to recover before repeating for the required time.

4 Weekly Training Schedule Your weekly training schedule should include: 2 3 Functional Strength workouts 2 3 Cardio workouts (Interval training, cardiovascular activities or sports) Your weekly training schedule will look something like this: Mon Tues Wed Thurs Fri Sat Sun Functional Strength Workout A Interval Training Functional Strength Workout B Swimming 45 mins Functional Strength Workout A Extreme Sport Rest Please feel free to be flexible with your training schedule depending on your current exercise levels and time spent enjoying your extreme sport and/or other sports.

13 Exercise Directory On the following pages is a directory of the exercises used in the workouts. If you are unsure of how to perform any of the exercises correctly, make sure you get instruction from a qualified fitness trainer. When performing exercises it is extremely important to have a good technique. Remember - it is better to perform 6 reps with perfect technique than to perform 10 sloppy reps. Whilst doing the exercises, make sure you adhere to the following principles: Bracing your core When performing all of the exercises you will need to remember to brace your core. This means you are activating the muscles around your abdominals and lower back. It will help prevent lower back injuries, increase core stability & strength and promote good posture. To brace your core simply tense your abdominal muscles as though someone was going to punch you in the stomach. Make sure you maintain a normal breathing pattern. Another good cue is to remember to stay tall through your torso. By staying tall you should automatically adopt this position. Good posture For most of exercises (especially those done in a standing position) you will need to maintain good posture. This means bracing your core, keeping your chest up, shoulders back & down and neck straight. Stand up and practice this position so you know how it feels. Do your best to maintain good posture throughout your workout.

14 Functional Strength Workout A Dynamic Warm-up Stability Ball Rollercoaster Squat down on the ground with your chest leaning on the stability ball. Push off with your feet and roll over the top off the ball braking yourself with your hands before pushing back to the start position. Repeat for the required number of repetitions. Bodyweight Squats Stand with your feet shoulder width apart or slightly greater and hands behind your head. Keep your back flat, bent from your knees and as you squat push your hips back and push your bodyweight through your heels as if you are sitting down onto a chair. Your knees should go over the top of your feet. Squat down till your thighs are parallel with the ground, then slowly return to the start position. Stability Ball Bridge Support your weight with your toes on the ground and your forearms on the ball, creating a straight bridge with your body. Draw in your abdominals toward your spine and hold this throughout the exercise for the required time.

15 Backward Lunge & Twist From a standing position, take a big step backward into a lunge position and simultaneously twist up and away from your back leg. Push back to a standing position and repeat with your other leg. You should feel a stretch through your hip flexors (front of your hip) when performing this exercise. Push-Ups Start with your hands slightly wider than shoulder width apart and in line with the middle of your chest. Keeping your body straight, lower yourself until your nose is about to touch the ground and then push back up to the start position. You can perform these on your knees instead if you like. Stability Ball Balance Balance on the ball on your knees for the required time. Make sure you are not going to fall onto any objects. If it is easy to balance like this for the required time, try balancing on one knee and one foot.

16 Lateral Squat Start with your feet as wide apart as comfortable and your hands behind your head or out to the front for balance. Lunge over to one side by bending your knee and pushing your hips back as though you were sitting onto a bench. Your bent knee should not extend over the front of your toe. Repeat with the opposite leg. Note: You will feel a stretch in your groin when doing this exercise. Single Leg Glute Bridge Lie on your back with your knees flexed and feet flat on the ground. Raise your hips off the ground creating a straight bridge between your shoulders and knees. Keeping your core braced and squeezing your glutes (butt muscles) extend one leg off the ground.
