Yesterday you figured out your goals and why they are so important to you. Review this daily to keep it fresh in your mind. You set short term goals working up to your ultimate goal. Great, now we have an outline of your journey. Next, we are going to start to build your workout plan.
The first question to ask yourself is how many days per week can you commit to scheduled workouts. Be realistic. If you do nothing right now three days will be more realistic than six days per week.
Then how long will you be able to commit to each workout? 30 min 45 min or 60 min? Again look at your schedule and commitments. Make time but be realistic.
Now choose the days and times you are going to workout. Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 8am to 845am.
Set an alarm on your phone or write it in your planner. SCHEDULE IT! It’s an appointment just as important, if not more important than the dentist, your hair cut a lunch date. Your health should be at the top of your priority list. So schedule it in.
Now, what type of workouts will you do each day? How you determine this is by reviewing your goals! If your ultimate goal is to squat 200lbs then Monday, Wednesday, Friday will be strength training days and not cardio. So if you are looking to lose weight you may structure it like this: Monday – Strength Training, Wednesday – Cardio, Friday – Strength and Cardio
Do not forget to incorporate a recovery day when you start to work out more often. Take a day to do yoga, foam rolling or stretching.
When you make this schedule, schedule it in for the next 3 or 4 weeks and then reassess at the end of the training block.
