Focus on hitting your targets

FITNESS expert DAVID FAIRLAMB continues his quest to get you in shape for summer.
THOSE of you who have changed your lifestyle and introduced regular exercise and healthy eating will now begin to understand how different you can look and feel in a short period of time.
The buzz of knowing what you want to achieve and that you are in the process of achieving, is fantastic.
Make sure you keep this buzz feeling until you hit your targets. Stopping when you look a bit better and returning to old habits isn’t good enough.
Here are this week’s training options. Remember they are a guideline only. Always make sure you warm up before each workout and cool down and stretch after.
Longer workout: 40-45 minutes
Start with an easy 10 minutes, followed by 5-10 repetitions of a hill or set of steps. Continue with 10 minutes of one-minute quick one-minute slow, with 10 minutes constant pushing yourself to the end.
This will give you a good varied session and can be done outside or in the gym.
