    35 mins bike (incl 5 mins warm up before stretches + 5 min warm down at end of gym session); 30 mins x-trainer; 20 mins various arm/leg/abs fixed station exercises + stretches.

    This morning with a partner I spend an hour doing -

    Burpees with a pressup - Started at 20, then 19, 18, 17 and down to 1.. This was a killer! 210 in total.
    Then the same with situps, so 210 total..
    Then started on burpees with tuck jumps and got down to 17, so only 57 in total as the session finished.

    Starting to feel the pain already!

    A nice conditioning challenge I came across during my martial arts training was to time yourself to do 100 burpees. Obviously proper burpee form with a press-up between each one.

    Not as easy at is sounds. Various different strategies. Can do fixed sets of 10 or 20 with a little rest between each set, or just blast out as many as possible.

    I used to knock 50 straight out, then get through the remaining 50 in sets of 5 or 10.

    Extremely difficult if you are honest with your form. I could knock the first 50 out in around 2 and a half mins, then would take at least 4 and a half to do the remaining 50. 7 minutes(ish) was my best time, although I got that down from over 8 minutes with just a couple of attempts and learned the best strategy. I heard of supermen doing it in around 6 minutes, but to be quite honest (and absolutely no disrespect intended) I'd be surprised if many dedicated runners could get down that quick without doing some proper upper body conditioning.

    I did it during training camp for a pro fight so i was in extremely good shape. I'm unboubtedly overall fitter now when it comes to running, but I doubt I still have the upper body condition, despite regular gym work. It's a different ball game altogether doing fight training.

    Couple of 30minute sessions on Fri and Sat.

    Bike, rower, cross trainer, stairs m/c, treadmill and leg strengthening equipment has all been used in 10min efforts.

    Need to lose a stone or more and get fit for a big upcoming challenge.
