Paul Garay Custom Workout Program - Day 3 Arms & Legs

This is the last of the Custom Workout Program day videos for my very good friend Paul Garay, todays YouTube Workout Video shows you Day 3 where we go through some Arm and Leg Exercises Paul will perform using his Total Gym and body weight. Paul will also be incorporating Cardio using his Precor Elliptical, or some Skipping or Burpees. Paul will work towards being able to complete this entire workout without breaks but may at first need to take some rests so that he is able to do complete sets. I will be checking back with Paul and we may make some adjustments along the way.

Here is an example of a complete Shoulder and Legs workout that Paul can scale to meet his available time and fitness level.

  • Total Gym Triceps Extensions with back to board (1 set of 10-20 reps)
  • Air Squats (1 set of 20+ reps)

Paul can add more sets to this workout as his fitness level increases. I also showed him some Ab exercises he can do after each workout to build his Abs.

This is a full 18 separate sets that should take Paul around 30 minutes to complete and will give Paul a complete muscle building and cardio workout targeted for Arms and Legs. Paul can scale it by doing more or less sets and also adjusting the level of his Total Gym for more or less resistance and adding in either a medicine ball or free weight to his leg exercises.

Paul Garay Custom Workout Program - Interview

The other day I was on the phone with a very good friend of mine "Paul Garay", and we where talking about how things where going with him, Paul has had diabetes for about 15 years now. Paul recently has taken up riding his bike and rides about 100km per week which has dramatically improved his insulin readings to the point that he has been able to cut back a bit on his diabetes medication. The problem is we are now heading into our Canada BC fall and winter seasons which if you live around here, you will understand is not the most bike friendly type of weather.

I mentioned to Paul that I would like to help him out with an "off biking season" Workout Program that he could fit into his schedule and that would be modular and scaleable and would even allow for biking when the sun manages to poke it's head out for a day or two.

So I headed over to Paul's to figure out a Workout Program based around his goals, schedule and available workout equipment. This video is the Interview part where you get to meet Paul and find out a little bit about him.

Due to the length of the video I decided to split it up into four parts that I will be uploading over the next few days sequentially.
