Niko’s Weekly Dose # 33 | Follow My Weekly Fitness Plan

This week was the mid-way point of testing for Phase 3 of the Afterburn Training System.

Testing of this phase continues to be the best phase that I have tested so far, I am really excited about the results I will achieve in the second half of this testing phase.

This week I also played in my Touch Rugby League grand final. In a disappointing way to end the season we ended up going down 4-2.

The whole session including warm-up, the workout, finishers and warm down took me 45mins to complete, keeping my heart rate at an average of 125BPM, with a maximum heart rate of 150BPM, burning a little over 438kcal.

  • Training: Touch Rugby League
  • Date: Tuesday 3rd July 2012
  • Time: 8:00pm

Tonight’s game was the grand final for the season. As usual the game was fast paced making for a great HIIT session. What that meant was during the game I would go as hard as I could for about 2 minutes, then I sub off and have a 2 minute rest. With each half lasting 20mins, it made for a hard HIIT session, but as per usual and it didn’t even feel like exercise because I was having fun.

The team we played in the grand final called ‘No Reserves’ played a fantastic game and unfortunately ended up beating us 4-2 .

The whole session including warm-up, the workout, and warm down took me 45mins to complete, keeping my heart rate at an average of 141 BPM, with a maximum heart rate of 176BPM, burning a little over 550kcal.

Another great week of training completed. For the next couple of weeks I won’t be playing any Touch Rugby League as there is a break between seasons, instead I will be getting stuck into some wicked crossfit sessions. Testing will also continue on Phase 3 of the Afterburn Training System.
