2019 Workout Plan…Will you be joining us?

We are about to embark on our new workout challenge for 2019! I wanted to post up our workout plan today, so that everyone knows what to do each day of the week. This plan incorporates strength training, cardio vascular work, and flexibility training.

I wanted this workout challenge to be as efficient as possible, By fitting in everything that needs to be accomplished into compacted blocks of time.

If for some reason you can’t fit in your flexibility training in the early morning, then please slate it in for after your main workout, or in the evening before watching your favorite shows.

For the main workouts we will be combining strength training with weights, with sprints of cardio in between sets. For the cardio sprints, you are to really go all out, and go as fast as possible. You shouldn’t be able to speak during this one minute, but instead go as fast as you can while keeping the correct form.

For your very first strength exercise, you will warm up by completing 3 sets with light to moderate weight. Rest 1 minute after each warm up set. Once you are warmed up, you will begin your main supersets.

Each superset will include a strength exercise with barbell or dumbbells (if you don’t have a barbell, just use dumbbells for the whole workout) and when your reps are completed for each weight set, you will immediately go into a cardio boosting exercise for 1 minute. Once that is done, you will rest for 1 to 2 minutes, before moving on to the next superset.

STARTING PHOTO-So this is what I look like now. I don’t have a lot of definition on my abs here, but for my next photos, you will see that begin to change. My arms will also look more defined.

Ciarra at her starting point. You will see definition pop on her as well as time goes on.

WEIGHT/CARDIO INTERVAL TRAINING-MONDAY-FRIDAY.

(***Foam roll any tight areas of your body after workout to avoid any tightness, and to help drain the lymph nodes.)

****OPTIONAL-If you are like me, and only if you are up to it, you may add in more cardio. I like to go for a jog, bike ride, or walk on top of my regular workouts. This is just who I am, and what feels good to me. I won’t do this if I am too tired, or my body feels overworked. Sometimes taking a break is what is best. ONLY do this if you have time, or just like to get out and move your body. I do this at a more easy pace, and for the purpose of well being. I LOVE being outside!
