Challenging yourself to test what you’re truly made of isn’t easy – it may feel even a little uncomfortable at times. So, why would you go through the trouble and “torment” yourself?
Because pushing your limits (safely) is the way to become the best version of yourself. It’s likely that your mental barriers are stronger than the physical ones.
We know you’ve got what it takes, but do you? Are you ready to discover your true potential?
This 4-week fitness program, created by CrossFit coach Frederik Aegidius, will help you push your limits the right way. So, don’t just go all the way, go beyond – to become your potential!
Fitness PROgram Workouts: STrength, HIIT, MObility, Active Recovery
The 4-week fitness program consists of four different different workouts that focus on improving different areas: strength, high-intensity cardio, mobility and recovery.
Movements, reps and time vary depending on the focus of each session but some compound movements are included in several routines – for example, movements that combine burning calories and building strength, as they give you the most bang for your buck.
In the HIIT sessions you should be moving fast and breathing heavily.
You’ll find yourself out of breath and with a burning sensation in your muscles – but that’s where results are made!
The pace of the strength sessions should be slower than in HIIT.
The focus should be on proper technique and undoing the hours of sitting that most of us have to do every day.
Strength alone isn’t enough – not even cardio and strength together, although combining the two will give you the best of both worlds.
Moreover, you need mobility training to increase the range of motion, have functional muscles and control different types of movements.
Doing light activities is a great way to softly activate the muscles and increase blood flow to the damaged tissues to promote regeneration.
Together with enough rest, sleep, nutrition and time, active recovery workouts will speed up the recovery process.
