James Smith's

James Smith, from Elite Bodyworks came in to class to answer our questions.

JackGrahamSedgwick's insight:

 

Today, we met James Smith, who owns his own gym company. The whole class asked him questions. Here are some of the questions and answers:

1.  How long did it take you to start your business?

-   Around 5 years

2.  Does it cost a lot to start your own business and keep it running?       

3.  Have you always wanted to do this as a career?

-    Not always

4.  What were your other interests when you were young?

-    Mechanics, but changed at college.

 

He gets personal enjoyment out of helping others. A sense of pride from helping people become what they want to be.

Going to different countries to learn and continually learn more and more.

12 weeks minimum to help people change their figures

Week 2

Week 2 | Training Program | Scoop.it
JackGrahamSedgwick's insight:

Training session

Mini-death circuit    (Strength/endurance).

Bicep hammer curl- 7 sets 10 reps 3kg

Dumbbell shoulder press- 7 sets 10 reps 3kg

Dumbbell squat- 7 sets 10 reps 3kg

Dumbbell lat raise- 7 sets 10 reps 3kg

Dumbbell dead lift- 7 sets 10 reps 3kg

Press ups- 7 sets of 10

Sit ups- 7 sets of 10

 

45 seconds rest.

 

At the end of the circuit, we did a finisher. We had 2 teams who all had to do a wall squat and hold it for the duration of the activity. One by one we had to get up, put a russian log behind our heads and had to do 10 step ups on to a platform, then get back in to the wall squat position. This was good as it acted as an exercise, and a cool down.

 

I think the session went well, and I believe it was beneficial as it tired me out slightly, I felt like it would improve my general fitness, as well as muscular endurance.

Week 3

Third week of my 6 week training program.

JackGrahamSedgwick's insight:

Due to a leg injury I couldn't do my full circuit.

However, I still did what I could to the best of my ability, which was:

60kg 8 reps- Pec deck

55kg 8 reps- Chest press

50kg 8 reps- Shoulder press

 

Unfortunately, I couldn't do my full circuit so I don't feel like I've improved as much as I could have.

I will be able to use my legs properly in about a week or two but I will have to modify my circuit and make the weight on the leg machines a bit lower until I am 100%.
