JOE's Weekly Workouts: A high intensity circuit to kick start your fitness in 2014

It's January, so it's time to get back in the gym with JOE's weekly workout routines


With the New Year come a few resolutions, one of which is normally to get in better shape, eat healthily and do our best to get to the gym a few times every week. Just like everyone else, JOE made those promises to ourselves this year too, and we've decided that we could all use some help.

So we've teamed up with our mates at Raw Condition Gyms in Dublin to go through a metabolic conditioning workout that will help you get lean, burn fat and get in great shape.

Trainers Kane Kearns and Andrew Hickey run us through a routine that involves thrusters and bar to chest pull ups, and focus on a few key points in the form and technique of doing these exercises.

The routine should be done to a certain number of reps and in a series of 21-15-9. To start you should do 21 thrusters and 21 pullups, then 15 thrusters and 15 pullups, and then finally 9 thrusters and 9 pullups. The key is to do the circuit as quickly as possible, but make sure that you concentrate on the form, and take a break if you feel that you're beginning to fail. You can then use that time as a benchmark and a measure of your improving fitness.


Keep an eye on our Men's Health section too as we'll have more from the two boys next week, as well as more workouts for you to add to your routines throughout the next few weeks and make sure that we can all stick to our 2014 resolutions.

You can keep up with Kane and Andy on Twitter, as well as Raw Gyms to see what the latest news is, or check out their website.
