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!
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:
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
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
F1. Jump lunges (one minute straight)
F2. Curtsy lunges
F3. Leg raises
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!
