One week down and we've survived!
How are your workouts going? I know I've had to make some adjustments to my original plan! It has been a juggling act trying to figure out how to fit all my training and mobility work in without being away from my kids/family too long. They are my most important "job," so I try to get it all done before they get up. But sometimes I'm doing workouts with my kids or getting them set up on bikes while I run behind them. Or I swim laps in the pool while they swim and occasionally grab my feet or jump on my back for a dolphin ride. Or I tread water or pool run while judging them on their diving/splash competition. It's a work in progress for sure, but I try to keep it fun and involve them in activities to teach them that an active lifestyle is fun and variable.
So plan your workout time, but be flexible enough to adjust it as needed. You deserve time for yourself, but making time to care for the other people in your life is probably more important. It's a tricky balance, so keep making adjustments until you find the balance that works for you and your family.
So, here is the plan for this week. If you're short on time, stick with the beginner option for each workout. If you have access to a gym or some weights, increase your weight and you'll get an amazing workout in a short amount of time. A little of something is better than nothing. Remember, consistency is the most crucial part of getting and staying fit and active. Make it a habit to move every single day. The results will follow! I promise!
Monday: HIIT Blaster #2
Tuesday: Cardi Party #1
Wednesday: Upper Body Sculpt #2
* For a little different variation, do one exercise for 30 seconds, followed by a 30-sec cardio interval, then move on to the next exercise for 30 sec, followed by a 30-sec cardio interval. Continue this throughout the entire set and repeat the whole set 1-3 more times. Then move on to the next set and repeat the same procedure.
Thursday: Sevens #5
Friday: 1000 Rep Workout #1
Saturday: Get outside and run, bike, hike, walk, swim, or play for at least 30 minutes. Or do Cardi Party #2 for a quick at-home workout.
Sunday: REST DAY! Take a walk, stretch, or do some Yoga or Pilates to help your body recover and prepare for next week.
