Best 5k Workouts

This comprehensive 5k workout programme will give you all of the information you need to get you running your first 5K race in just 5 weeks. We have organised it based on three ability levels – beginner, for someone who’s never run before; intermediate, for someone who is moderately active; and advanced, for someone who considers themselves fairly active and is looking to improve his or her fitness and running time. You will learn the importance of a healthy, active life, as well as how fitness, the best nutrition and lifestyle work hand-in-hand to help you achieve your goals. Whether you’re new to running or already do cardio a few times a week, this programme will take you from 0 to 5K in style successfully.

As with the Herbalife 24Fit Workout , the  “5 Weeks to 5K” programme utilises the basics of periodisation training, which is one of the most established and timetested training methods in the sports world. By systematically increasing your training load and allowing for necessary rest to promote muscle adaptation, you will gradually build fitness in a sustainable way. Unlike most programs, we want you to avoid starting out too fast. Our goal is to get you race-ready without becoming mentally frustrated, physically tired or, even worse, injured

The  24Fit Workout starts with Phase 1 on stability where the body is hardened against injury. This involves the use of light weights and other exercises to strengthen all the little “helper muscles” around the joints, which, along with a lot of stretching insures that each joint is functioning properly. This phase prepares the body for the more strenuous work to come later in the training cycle. What Robert Forster calls making the body “bullet proof” or “Kevlar Training”.
