Do you follow a plan or do your own thing?
Tuesday, June 28, 2011
When I first started losing, I didn't really follow a set exercise plan. I got the Turbo Jam workouts and honestly, I didn't even follow the workout calendar. I just basically did whichever workout I had time for/felt like doing on a particular day. I did try to exercise at least 4 days a week though.
Now, that I'm almost at goal, it's harder and harder to lose. I can go weeks following plan, exercising 5-6days a week no maybe lose .5lb. It can be frustrating, but I have to remember how far I have come. I try to follow set exercise plans now, becuase I feel it kind of takes the guesswork out of it. I am in week 5 of Turbo Fire schedule. Here is the plan I follow:
Monday: Fire 55 (55 minutes of kickboxing cardio)
Tuesday: Fire 30 (30 minutes of cardio) & Sculpt 30 (toning w/ resistance bands)
Wednesday: rest day
Thursday: Fire 30 & Tone 30 (strength training)
Friday: Fire 55ez
Saturday: Fire 45 (45 min of cardio kickboxing)
Sunday: core 20 & stretch 40 (yoga)
This is the plan I basically try to follow and it changes every 4 weeks. I do substiture workouts sometimes based on my energy level. Sometimes I'll do a yoga workout from yogatoday.com instead of a kickboxing class.
So what about you? Do you follow a plan? Or create your own? Or just do what feels good?
