I’ve been wanting to do this series for a while now! As we head into summer, now is the perfect time! One of the questions I get often is, “How much do you workout in a week?” This is followed by, “What do you do?” To answer those questions, in a typical week, I workout 4-6 times….
I aim for 4 days of weight training + cardio workouts, 2 days of fitness classes of my choice, and 1 day rest. On the weight training days, it breaks down like this: 10 minute warm up / 30-40 minutes weight training / 20 minutes cardio intervals. If I am short on time, I will skip the cardio at the end and do the warm up and weights only. It happens sometimes!
Personally, I have found a great balance with this type of schedule, and I feel it has (and continues) to produce the results I want. This type of program was especially helpful when I was getting back into shape post-pregnancy!
I don’t walk into the gym without a plan, and neither should you! Being married to a fitness professional has its perks…my husband, Ryan, writes all of my workout programs. I’m fortunate to have his guidance in fitness, and he makes sure that what we are doing is always in line with my goals. I’ve learned so much from the way he has taught me to train. For the month of June, I’ll be sharing some of the workouts Ryan has put together, with you. We are going to share gym workouts, as well as workouts you can do at home or while traveling!
I’m really excited about sharing this series with you! If you have any questions about the programs or the exercises, always feel free to ask/comment. If I don’t know the answer, I can ask Ryan:-) I would love to hear your feedback on this series!
Thanks for stopping by!
