The most important thing I want you to take away from this posting is that for everyone this will be different! Just because this is what I do doesn’t mean this is what you should be doing as well. You can, of course. But for some this might be a bit too much or not enough.
I encourage you to find a weekly workout routine and schedule that suits you and makes you feel energized, strong, motivated and healthy. That’s the most important!
My workout routine and schedule doesn’t ALWAYS stay the same, but this has been working out for me the passed few months and I plan on keeping it this way into spring and summer (bikini season & LIVE Workout Party season).
I wish that I could work out first thing in the morning, but it’s not always the case that I am able to. My #1 priority is sleep and so it depends on what time I am able to get to bed the night before and if it makes sense for me to wake up extra early. My body needs 8-9 hours per night, sometimes more. So that’s how I decide if I will workout in the morning or not 🙂
Here we go! Here’s my weekly workout routine:
Total body workout with HEAVY lifting. Sometimes in the evening I will take a 5:30pm spinning class or hot yoga class. I do this if I feel like a little extra.
HIIT Cardio or a Results workout + 20-40 minutes of running outside or some indoor elliptical. Sometimes I will do a 90 minute Bikram yoga class in the evening on Tuesday OR Thursday (not both!)
I try to go to a 6:45am Spinning Class on Wednesdays every week! Total body workout with HEAVY lifting. 6:00pm Yoga at the Runtastic office.
HIIT Cardio or a Results workout + 20-40 minutes of running outside or some indoor elliptical. Sometimes I will do a 90 minute Bikram yoga class in the evening on Tuesday OR Thursday (not both).
Total Body Workout with HEAVY lifting. Sometimes I will go to Tae Bo class in the evening if I feel like it.
Total Body Workout with HEAVY lifting and a focus on the BUTT! Sometimes I will also do a Results workout as well.
Sunday: Rest or active rest (light yoga, walking, bike ride)…but sometimes it’s absolutely nothing! Sometimes on Saturday I am really tired so I make that my rest day. If that’s the case then I will sometimes go to Spinning on Sunday morning and then do my Total Body Workout with heavy weights focusing on the BOOTAY afterwards 😉
Some of you might be thinking “That’s way too much!” But keep in mind that I LOVE WORKING OUT. Like seriously, it’s my favorite thing in the world to do (besides traveling). If I could travel and workout for the rest of my life I would be the happiest person on the planet. Plus, I pay REALLY close attention to my nutrition and eat as healthy as possible. I am NEVER starving or cutting calories.
Some weeks I am really exhausted and I take 2 rest days. I don’t beat myself up if I cannot make this schedule perfect. But, it’s good to have this sort of skeleton to go by so I have some sort of structure. It’s always important to be flexible and listen to your body, but also to have a plan as well.
