New Workout Routine

New Workout Routine

Jeez, I wish I had large set of these instead of my dilapidated PowerBlock weights!

It is that time to switch up my workout routine! I just love to come up with different ways to arrange my workouts so that I keep my body guessing and to not get bored.

So without further ado, here is what I will be doing for the next six weeks!

Weightlifting

I will always be doing four weightlifting workouts a week (two upper and two lower body days). That will never, ever change. Here is what I am going to be doing on these days:

Upper body

10 minutes of non-stop cardio (jumping jacks, high-knees, burpees, star jumps etc.)

Weightlifting supersets (done three times each) –

A1. Chest press

A2. Chest Flyes

B1. Bent over rows

B2. Back flyes

Walking rest to get warmed back up

10 minutes of non-stop cardio again

Weightlifting supersets (done three times each)-

A1. Shoulder press

A2. Lateral raises

B1. Hammer curls

B2. Tricep kickbacks

Lower body

Sets done two to three times each-

A1. Jump Squats (one minute straight)

A2. Legs-together squats

A3. Wide deadlifts

B1. Star Jumps (one minute straight)

B2. Front lunges

B3. Plie squats

C1. Jump squats with leg cross-overs (one minute straight)

C2. Regular squats

C3. Stiff legged deadlifts

D1. Jump lungs (one minute straight)

D2. Side lunges

D3. Regular deadlifts

E1. High knees (one minute straight)

E2. Reverse lunges

E3. Bridges

F1. Jump lunges (one minute straight)

F2. Curtsy lunges

F3. Leg raises

Cardio

I will still be doing 30-40 minutes of the calisthenics but I will be switching up which ones I do and push myself harder. I recently found an exercise library on the Ace fitness site and will be doing some moves from there. You can find the library here: https://www.acefitness.org/education-and-resources/lifestyle/exercise-library/equipment/no-equipment/

On these days I will also continue to do three sets of two different ab moves.

To Yoga or not to Yoga?

I keep saying I am going to start doing Yoga but I never end up doing it. It seems like it may be really good for me so we will see if I get around to it in the next coming weeks.

A quick word about fitness journaling

I personally love to record my workouts. It is just fun to see my fitness progression as well as the calories I burn. It also helps me to figure out what different exercises to do if I have been doing the same ones for a while.

I have used a regular notebook to do this as well as various fitness journals. My favorite fitness journal by far is the BodyMinder by MemoryMinder Journals, Inc.

It is comprehensive with all of the different types of recording you can do with it. This journal includes places to write down your starting measurements, goals, workout routines, daily workout information, daily diet, weekly progress and fitness expenses.

I absolutely love it and if you are a fitness fanatic like me-you will too!
