This post is a little late sorry!
Here is a workout which I did the other day, between sets I measured my levels so you can see how they're effected for me during an shoulder, bicep training session with a mini HIIT session at the end - I will also do the same for a lower body session. Doing this every now and again helps me a huge deal as levels and our bodies change all the time so it's good to have an idea on how they are effected during training so any blips can be worked on and fixed!
As you can see, they alter most during the high intensity and towards the end of the upper body session, this is because of the adrenaline kicking in to push me through the tiredness and fatigue at the end, however I'm pretty happy with the swing of my levels throughout and feel that I can work at my optimum whilst they're within this range so my routine for upper body doesn't need to change!
I get many many questions about my libra in the gym but to be honest I don't mind at all; I quite enjoy telling people about it!
Some of the names are made up so if anyone wants to know what an exercise is just ask, I also make notes of the weight I used at the end of sets so I can try and increase when I next do the workout!
Workout lasts about 1.15min
HIIT about 15min
(If you can do HIIT for longer than that, you aren't working hard enough 💦)
