REAL, FRUGAL, HEALTHY, and FUN!!!
I got asked about my workout routine the other day. I’m going to share it with you, but I want to reiterate that your workout program should be customized to you, your body, and your goals. It has to be something you don’t loathe doing too terribly. It could be a great workout program, but if you’re not going to stick with it, then in all honesty, it’s not a good workout program for you. You need to listen to your body. Your program should challenge you, not knock you on your butt for days. You may have a body part you’re trying to target. That’s ok, but don’t neglect the rest of your body. You still want to find time to work the rest of your body out. I have my program broken down into a lower body day, an upper body day, and an ab day. I do cardio twice a week and yoga once. Those numbers are flexible and can be changed to meet different goals. Also, like I said, listen to your body.
I’m going to share the workout program I’ve been following the last 3 weeks with you. I’m planning to stick with it for a total of 6 weeks. Then, I’ll mix things up again. I really love this program, but it was made for me. You are welcome to try it and see if it works for you. You can also customize it to fit you better. You can also just use it to get ideas and set up your own program. This is an example, and that is all.
On Tuesdays, I run 2 miles as fast as I can. It’s a short workout, but if you run it as fast as you can, you are exhausted once you are done. It kicks my butt every time I do it, but I keep getting faster. I don’t do this because it’s the best running workout, but because I’m actually trying to see how fast I can run 2 miles.
Thursday is my yoga day. I pick a Yoga With Adriene video based on how I’m feeling that day. Sometimes, it’s hardcore, and sometimes, it’s restorative.
On Sundays, I’ve been giving my body a rest day. I haven’t always taken a rest day. It’s been really nice, though, and I can see a difference. I’m really liking it.
