Workout Plan: May 1-7
One more month until summer hits (at least for those of us in the northern hemisphere)!
What are your goals?
As the days get longer, utilize the extra daylight hours to get a little more activity into your day. Taking a walk in the morning and/or the evening is a great way to incorporate a little extra exercise and movement. It's also a great time to get a little social time if you go with a spouse, a friend, a child, a neighbor, or someone else. In fact, you are more likely to get that walk in if you plan to meet someone or a group. That extra bit of peer pressure, knowing that someone is going to be waiting for you, will increase your likelihood of getting exercise.
Likewise, you can always form a group or meet a buddy to do any of these workouts. My group started with one other girl who wanted me to help her get fit, and it quickly grew to a steady group of about 6-8 friends and neighbors. Working out is not my favorite, but I do it because I know it keeps my body in good shape and decreases my chances of running injuries. Hosting the group at my house and knowing I'm in charge of it forces me to get out there and do it. And we all push harder than we normally would. It's amazing how much easier these workouts are when you do them with friends!
This week is going to feature a new workout: Monday's Better Butt Workout. It's a burner, especially if you have a good, firm resistance band for Circuit #3!
I've included Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced options for each workout, so these workouts can be used by anyone. And they don't take long if you stick with the Beginner option. So set aside at least 20 minutes each day and make fitness a priority!
