New Workout Schedule
I hope you all had a great weekend! Thank you for your support on my new blogging policy! I’m so glad you guys understand where I’m coming from.
So not only is my blogging “schedule” changing with my internship but my workout schedule has had to change as well. I used to be able to exercise 6 days a week but that can’t really happen anymore. I just don’t have the time or energy to workout two days of the week, and I’m trying not to worry about it.
Chris was amazing and yesterday he wrote up a 12-week workout plan for me :D. He gave me guidelines for what to do for every workout, but the only ones he really wrote out were the resistance ones. Which is perfect and exactly what I asked him to do. I’ve been kind of in a rut with lifting and it will be really nice to be able to go to the gym and not have to come up with exercises on my own!
My new workout schedule will look something like this:
- Monday: interval workout
- Tuesday: resistance and abs/low-back workout
- Thursday: interval workout
- Saturday: resistance workout
- Sunday: cardio and abs/low-back workout
I started this plan this morning! And I’ll probably be making up a new interval workout for you guys with the workout guidelines he gave me :D.
The other thing I wanted to discuss was how I prepared myself for workouts at 5am in the morning. I never used to workout that early in the morning….much less feel like I was awake enough to ever feel like I could MOVE that early in the morning haha. So starting the week before my internship I slowly adjusted my sleep schedule.
I progressively started getting up earlier and earlier and tried to go to bed at earlier times as well. This way I wouldn’t feel like I was hit like a ton of bricks on the first morning of my internship. I started with waking up at 7:30am. The following days I would wake up either 15 minutes or a half hour earlier. And let me tell you- it worked!
Sure, my first workout after getting up at 5am may not have been stellar, but I was able to wake up fairly easily and felt awake enough to push myself! So, it totally is possible to get your body adjusted to working out early in the morning. I would just advise you not to go into head on. Ease yourself and your body into it and I think it will be much easier!
Anyway, I hope you all have a great Monday!
