Fitness assessment: Amanda has got a very good fitness foundation but after not training for 18 months and having had a baby 6 months ago, her core is likely to need some strengthening otherwise she could injure herself. Amanda is very strong with her upper and lower body strength and her plank was a lot more impressive than we thought it was going to be. Amanda’s fitness background should accelerate her fitness progress.
Plan of attack: Amanda’s program moved along quicker to a higher intensity because her ‘training age’ is higher than that of the other women. As your training age (the time you’ve been training for) progresses you need more and more variations - you need to change the program more often, you need to have a higher intensity in your workouts and you need to train more regularly.
Amanda’s fitness plan includes:
- Hill sprints 3 times a week
- Lunges squats and pushups twice a week
- Walking 10 thousand steps a day
