14 Jan Simons Group PT training plan
Welcome to The Club Gym Group Personal Training
My name is Simon Kennedy and I am 1 of the owners and head trainers at The Club. Ive been in the fitness industry for 14 years now and I’ve had the pleasure of helping hundreds of people change their mindsets, physiques and their lives.
Derek, William and I collectively have over 30 years experience and our number 1 goal is to help as many people as possible which is why we have started Group Personal Training at the club. This allows us to reach even more people than ever before. We have written the training plans ourselves and they will be delivered by our amazing team. Every plan is structured in a way to give you the most safe and effective workout which is suited to every fitness level, from complete beginner to seasoned trainer.
The newest GPT plan has been written by myself, Simon and the aim is to give you all the right tools in order to help you achieve your training goals, whether that is general fitness, fat loss, muscle gain or just to learn a new way to train.
This plan is based around full body weight training sessions and the use of supersets and giant sets. I am big fan of using these training techniques for many reasons, some of which are:
1 – Burn more Calories
In my full body programs we focus on compound movements, movements which use more than 1 muscle at a time. The benefit to this is that we burn more calories in our sessions as we are working multiple muscles at the same time. With the added use of supersets (2 exercises together with no rest between) and giant sets (3 or more exercises together with no rest between) we are able to get even more of a calorie burn.
2 – Building Muscle
Building muscle requires frequency. Rather than just doing 1 muscle group per week If we do 3-4 full body sessions per week with adequate recovery then we are hitting the same muscle groups with more frequency. This is a great way to build on our physiques.
3 – Limited time training
The most common reason people cite for not going to the gym is lack of time, so we have to have a system that covers both workout quality and efficiency. If you have a busy work/family schedule and getting to the gym 5 days a week isn’t possible then hitting 2-3 full body sessions is a great way to get more bang for your buck by focusing on multi joint movements and get the frequency needed to change your body shape. Programming in supersets and giant sets also allows for you to get more into your sessions as you are taking less rest during your session.
4 – Improved fitness
By hitting large movements such as squats, deadlifts, rows etc we require many muscle to work together which in turn will increase your heart rate, this increase in heart rate followed by periods of recovery is a great way to improve your fitness levels. The use of supersets and Gian sets is also a great way to get the heart rate up and get you sweating.
5 – Improved recovery
The plan runs over 6 days and is split over 3 workouts so you could do day on day off or 2 on 1 off and you will still be getting a great variety of exercises. This is all about learning new exercises as much as anything.
