5 x 5 Ladder – “ 5 minutes, 5 beats per minute (Bpm)”
45 minute training session (plus warm-up and cool down)
Subtract 40 Bpm from your maximum heart rate (HR) –
This would be from your “Ventilatory Threshold Zone 3”, or use the age predicted HR max if you don’t know your VT3.
Warm-up 6 to 10 minutes
Start your ladder at the low Bpm value ( HR max minus 40-Bpm), add five beats to this initial zone and run continuously for 5 minutes.
If your HR monitor has a timer, set it for 5 minutes and every time you hear the chirp from the alarm, “step up the ladder” and into the next 5 beat zone.
Complete five steps up the ladder, then descend the ladder by stepping down each five minutes in to the next lower five beat zone.
Cool down and stretch!

“Why wait for New Year’s day to change your habits, when all you need is a Monday?”
Readiness to change is a predictable process that happens in five stages (Norcross, Krebs & Prochaska 2011).
Here are the 5 Stages of Change:
The most successful New Year’s resolution makers will ring in January 1 at Stage 4. But most start the year in Stages 2 or 3 (Norcorss, Mrykalo & Blagys 2002).
If your New Year’s Resolution has to do with losing weight and getting into
great shape (and whose isn’t?) then guarantee your success by working with a fitness expert who can guide you to success.
I’d love to team up with you – together we will transform your body in 2013!
Warm-up properly before you Superset the following circuit:
Set up your timer in dual mode, :30sec work & :10sec transition.
TRX Hip Lift x :30sec
Swing, 2H x :30sec
Do 3-4 sets with no rest between exercises.
:60second rest interval between each circuit.
Make an appointment if you want to learn why and how to work with a Kettlebell and/or the TRX Suspension trainer.
