Cyclone Challenge – Day 8/9

Sean Lerwill in Maximuscle's 30 Day Cyclone Challenge

I’m now two complete rotations in and certainly feeling the workload. Yesterday was my fourth official rest day, and as per last week’s post arms day rest day, I used it was an active rest day. However, my body is definitely feeling the volume so I literally just did a 20min ab circuit. The day…

Cyclone Challenge – Day 7

Sean Lerwill in Maximuscle's 30 Day Cyclone Challenge

Yesterday was a complete rest day in terms of training. I had a pretty busy day with training others and working on a friends TV pilot so I was on my feet most of the day… and as the DOMS increased I just wanted to sit down! The session the day before was based around…

Cyclone Challenge – Day 6

Sean Lerwill in Maximuscle's 30 Day Cyclone Challenge

Yesterday was the first repeat of the rotation, so I was back to incline dumbbell press and chin-ups. As before, I did the chins first, and this time added a bit of weight to my bodyweight for the 10 at 10 4010 tempo. This was tough. I had to use some liquid grip and for…

Cyclone Challenge – Day 2

Sean Lerwill in Maximuscle's 30 Day Cyclone Challenge

Yesterday was the first rest day of my Cyclone Challenge GVT programne and followed my leg day the day before. I’ve waited until today to write the blog to see how the aftermath (DOMS) really is! The session it’s self was tough. The 1min rest between sets makes the weight (which is actually pretty modest)…
