Since beginning her transformation journey in 2011; personal trainer, influencer, cover model and full time athlete Paige Hathaway has become a global sensation.
Her current following on Instagram is an amazing four million strong. The key to success Paige says, is by setting weekly goals. That and taking the time to appreciate the other wonderful improvements fitness brings into our lives.
Her journey is a true rags to riches success story. Having risen from the humblest of beginnings and surviving a particularly rocky childhood to get to her star status today.
The 26 year old says she never planned for a career in fitness. Well, not strategically anyway. It was only after deciding she wanted to transform her skinny body seven years ago she first hired a personal trainer.
This decision would change her entire future. As not long afterwards, she decided to completely take a wild jump out of her comfort zone and enter a bikini competition.
At this point Paige had decided she wanted to be a “strong fit woman”. Something she also empowers women all over the world to become today.
Train Like Paige
Here’s a workout inspired by the way Paige trains. As she undeniably a fan of advanced systems, we’ve included super sets, trisets and drop sets to get the most from every muscle.
For Superset 1, complete exercise 1a. and immediately follow it with 1b. with minimal rest. Then, once you have completed each set, rest for 60 seconds. Perform the triset in the same way, resting fully only after smashing set 2c.
When you’re ready to hit the drop set load the bar with a weight that challenges you for 12 clean reps. By the end of the third set, you should reach exhaustion.
At this point strip away small increments of weight (5-20%) and force out the last remaining reps. This gets every last ounce of work out of the muscle by offering a weight it can move but is still effective.
