Today, I am filling you in on my weekly workouts at this time in my life. I am loving my simple and effective routine.
I will tell you I have gone through many different phases throughout my life when it comes to fitness. There have been times where I have done certain exercises simply because I thought that is what I had to do to look a certain way, but I HATED them. I can honestly say I have FINALLY found an exercise routine I truly LOVE and look forward to each and every day. My rest days are usually my hardest days for me, but I am slowly starting to love them.
So what does my week of workouts look like?
Right now I am exercising between 4-5 days per week. Currently, most weeks it has been closer to four days simply because life with my girls is very busy right now and that’s okay.
Remember we need to make our exercise routine adaptable and flexible. We need to be able to know when to push through and when to rest.
Your workouts are not set in stone. I can honestly say, I am finally at a point in my life where my week of workouts have become flexible. I will simply move my workouts around depending on what I have going on each week. I move them from day to day as needed. I do make sure to give my body rest between strength workouts. I do not work the same muscle group two days in a row. VERY IMPORTANT TO REST YOUR MUSCLES.
Be kind to yourself and know when to rest and not over do it.
My Typical Week of Workouts:
- Monday – Rest Day
- Tuesday – 30-45 Min Full Body Resistance Workout + 10-45 Min Lower Body Focused Resistance Workout (entire workout is no more than 60 minutes)
- Wednesday – 30-60 Rebounding
- Thursday – 30-45 Min Full Body Resistance Workout + 10-45 Min Upper Body Focused Resistance Workout (entire workout is no more than 60 minutes)
- Friday – 30 Min Rebounding + 30 Min Yoga
- Saturday – Rest Day or 30-45 Min Full Body Resistance Workout
- Sunday – Rest Day
*I do add in random rebounding sessions here and there, simply because I love the way I feel after a jumping on my trampoline. I love the way my body feel energized and rejuvenated. So throughout the day I may do a 5-10 min workout to just feel ALIVE.
*My resistance workouts are either barre, pilates, or strength training based depending on the day or the week. Sometimes they are a mix of all three.
Example: I may do a full body barre class and follow is up with a lower body strength session.
Remember be kind to yourself, move a little or a lot, eat healthy and love yourself.
