Hi there. I hope someone can help me. I'm completely in the dark with something so this may sound stupid. Apologies if it does. I split my training between running and circuit training/boxing. When I run I use the strava app on my iPhone 6 and it links to this new health thing on there. But for a while I've been thinking about how I can log my boxing circuits? I do not carry my phone with me whilst training. The first thing that entered my mind is a one fit all gps watch and heart rate strap (I've been looking at a garmin forerunner) but unsure if this actually does what I'm looking for? So my questions are Do GPS watches and heart rate monitor measure kcal burned and training levels in the likes of circuits. If so what is the best type to buy? If not then how do I get the correct information on what my body is doing during this training? Any help will be appreciated. Ta Ged
hi everyone, firstly i know this is a running forum but in the past i have picked the brains of the wonderful helpful people here for other exercises and they seemed to be willing to help! MY INSANITY THREAD FROM LAST YEAR IS STILL GOING STRONG!!
Heres my current situation and any ADVICE would be greatly appreciated.
For the past 12-15 months i have been going to a boxing gym for circuit training on a tuesday and thursday night. (6-7pm) Afterwards my friend goes in the weights room of the gym and i have decided i want to do the same...
i am now back in university and a dad with a child on the way so time is limited and i have read on the internet that if done properly twice weekly weights can be good and some excellent gains can be seen in the long term, so with my time reatraints this is the only time i can realistically fit in weights sessions.
i am aware its not ideal after 60 mins of tough circuits but does anyone have any plans which i could use? The reason why i havent just picked a generic one off the internet is because i do the circuits before and that includes a fair bit of leg work and squats etc....
Hi guys. Firstly I know this is a running forum and this is slightly off topic, but I have always came to this site for information and hope that someone here can help me. All advice is appreciated. On a Tuesday and Thursday I do a quite intensive boxing based circuit training. It is hard and I feel stronger and stronger. Afterwards my friend and I use the weights room to do some weights. As of now I am doing chest and bicep Tuesday and tricep and shoulders thursday. I am heavy trying to lose timber. He's smaller and trying to get bigger. I still go running Friday and Sunday morning too. 5 miles and 7 miles. Now the advice I need is regarding the weights. I KNOW I am not doing any leg work (although the circuit incorporates this), no back work and no abs (again lots of this in circuits). Would I be better not doing specific groups of weights as I am now and instead doing whole body exercises? I read up once that full body exercises are better. I feel as if working a group once a week isnt really showing much change to my physique. If so what are they and does anyone have a little routine for two days a week? I genuinely don't have the time to do more days in the gym. As I say, any advice will be appreciated. Thanks again.
Hi everyone i do more circuit training than running now but still do this in my saucony running shoes...i think i am wearing them out though and i think i need specific shoes for circuits....any advice?
