Workout schedule

Friday, June 29, 2012

Since finishing P90X2, I have been doing whatever DVDs I "feel like" or whichever ones fit into my schedule based on time/length of DVD. I was really missing the structure and schedule of having workout planned out. So, I am making a new schedule. I am doing 3 weeks of ChaLEAN Extreme (doing each "month" of workouts for 1 week, so week 1 I do Burn 1/2/3, week 2 Push 1/2/3, week 3 Lean 1/2/3) and I mix in other cardio with it (Insanity, Turbo Fire/Kick, etc). The following week, I will do a week of Bob Harper's strength training workouts. Then a week of The Firm fanny lifter workouts, followed by a week of Amy Dixon. Then, I will either start all over again with ChaLEAN Extreme 1/2/3; or do Supreme 90, P90X2/, Jackie Warner, or Jillian Michaels... we'll see when I get to that point what I feel like doing. I have a calendar/planner that I got at the dollar store that I track all of my workouts in, so everything is "penciled" in and if I change my workout that day it's easy to just erase and put what I did in there. I love having a record of what I actually did- I started this back in November. I also track any aches/pains (especially when my hip was really bugging me, it was good to see which exercises made it worse the next day!) and I track my weigh in's in it.

    I love having a plan too! It makes getting up in the am easier when I don't have to make that first decision of which workout I'll be doing.

Nice that you're keeping a journal of what you're doing.

Keep up the great work!

    That sounds great. I like the structure that the long-term plans offer, but somewhere between 6 and 8 weeks I usually start to get bored and fall off. I'll probably steal your idea when I'm "done" with Body Revolution (which I am determined to see through to the end!)

    Great plan! I track my workouts the same way, and it really works for me! Each month I pick a theme or workout system (Insanity, S90, Jillian, Brazil Butt, etc) and I pencil in my workouts for the entire month. If I have to change one or two, that's fine, but I try to stick with my plan. It is so fun to see how much you have done and the programs you have finished! Good luck in July!
