Hey, everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend! I’m officially starting back to school today and am trying to get back into the routine of it.
Many people make resolutions or set goals at the beginning of a new year, and one of the most common ones is to exercise more.
One of my proudest accomplishments of 2020 was getting into a consistent workout routine. I talk more about how that happened in this post, but one of the components that has helped me stick to working out 5 days a week was to change up my routine and find exercises that I enjoyed doing.
Heather Robertson has become my favorite “instructor” because her videos are effective and easy to follow, and she puts out new ones every few days.
I have to say that I’m not a personal trainer, so I can’t say that what I do is “correct” or right for you, but during a typical week, I try to mix up my workouts so I hit all the major muscle groups. Upper body is my favorite, so I usually start the week targeting that area. You’re supposed to give muscle groups at least 48 hours to recover, so I try not to target the same area two days in a row.
The following is an example of a week’s worth of workouts that I typically do.
Hopefully, this will give you a starting point if fitness is something you want to work on this year.
