Workout calendar and other adventures (with pictures)
Tuesday, January 29, 2013
So...I finally made my workout calendar for the month of February. I also found one of my old calendars from last year and used that as a model. I'll snap some pictures later and add them so you can see the Sharpie madness. My formula is as follows:
M: Run/ST upper body
T: Elliptical/ST lower body
T: Elliptical/ST upper body
F: Run or Elliptical/ST lower body
My goal each week is to hit all of my Strength workouts (or sub in a total body workout to cover upper and lower), to run 3 days and have at least 2 sessions on the elliptical (or some other form of cardio), so the schedule is a guideline. I'm not trying to work out 2 hrs per day, 7 days a week and never give myself a rest day or anything.
I am using the strength workouts from Supreme 90 Day along with the Bob Harper videos I have. I really like the upper body workouts from S90. I did the Shoulders and Arms one this morning. (If you're not familiar with the program, there are 4 different upper body workouts, the other 3 are Chest and Back, Back and Bis, and Chest Shoulders and Tris). The variety is nice and it's a good way to keep things fresh. If I decide I want to do a total body workout instead of 2 sessions over 2 days, I'll rely on Bob Harper's Total Body Transformation, Pure Burn, or Body Rev (it's supposedly cardio but my arms are always burning afterward--he does a great job of blending the elements of cardio and strength training so you feel like you get 3 hours' worth of gym time out of an hour video). I also plan to do his Yoga for the Warrior once per week and Totally Ripped Core once per week (I finally got all the way through that one for the first time a couple of days ago...ouch, in a good way).
Here's my color code:
Here's my first month:
(I will post another picture at the end of the month so you can see how successful I was).
And here's what I found on the couch the other day:
