Hi all! I hope you are all doing well and taking the appropriate precautions to reduce your risk of contracting the virus.
I just wanted to share my workout plan for the next 6-8 weeks. If you are looking for a new routine, try this one with me and let me know how it goes!
I will be doing four days of weightlifting- two for upper body and two for lower body. They combine cardio intervals and supersets.
Upper body days-
Each set (A,B,C, D, E and F) is done two or three times
A1. High knees (done for 1 minute)
A2. Chest press
A3. Chest flyes
B1. Jumping jacks (done for 1 minute)
B2. Bent over rows
B3. Back flyes
C1. Star jumps (done for 1 minute)
C2. Shoulder press
C3. Lateral raises
D1. Mountain climbers (done for 1 minute)
D2. Hammer curls
D3. Tricep kickbacks
E1. Butt kicks (done for 1 minute)
E2. Push ups
E3. Tricep push ups
F1. Jump forward and run back to start place (done for 1 minute)
F2. Wide push ups (arms out wider than a regular push up)
F3. Skull crushers
Done the same way as the upper body workouts.
A1. Jump squats (done for 1 minute)
A2. Regular squats
A3. Stiff legged deadlifts
B1. Jump lunges (done for 1 minute)
B2. Reverse lunges
B3. Plie squats
C1. Turn jumps (done for 1 minute)
C2. Legs together squats
C3. Wide deadlifts
D1. Star jumps (done for 1 minute)
D2. Side lunges
D3. Hip thrusts
E1. Jump squats (done for 1 minute)
E2. Regular deadlifts
E3. Inner thigh raises
F1. High knees (done for 1 minute)
F2. Forward lunges
F3. Outer thigh raises
I like to do two days of cardio a week. My favorite form of cardio right now is to do about 30-40 minutes of cardio movements without stopping (or briefly stopping to get water halfway through).
After doing the cardio I also follow it up with a couple of ab exercises or I do a short Pilates workout.
There are SO many wonderful free cardio workouts you can choose from!
I have decided for my off days I will be doing restorative Yoga if the mood strikes. If not, I will be doing nothing!
Getting in exercise is important
I love to come up with exercise plans for myself as that is how I am able to be consistent. This workout plan is very similar to what I have been doing but it is just slightly different so that my body keeps getting challenged.
What workouts are you doing or planning to do?
