Try pick ‘n’ mix training

Write down some exericse, times and reps on different pieces of paper, fold them up and put them into 2 jars (one for exercises and one for times and reps) – for example step-ups, rowing, lunges, power plate, squats, crunches, running …. 2 mins, 5 mins, 15 mins, 5 reps, 10 reps, 12 reps etc.

Pick out 2 pieces at random each time until you have 10 pieces of paper and that will by your programme for the day, eg. cycling – 10 minutes, press-ups – 1 minute, crunches – 12 reps etc.
