Good morning friends! Have you slept well? Oh I slept well and my flu seems to be gone! YES! I am not going to workout today, but I wanted to dedicate a post to talk about my weekly workout routines. Ever since I was a teenager I have been working out a lot, simply because I had a hard time to concentrate, and move and especially running made me more focused. As I got used to having workout routines very early in life, it is now a natural part of my daily routines. I workout 5 times a week. I have tried everything from personal trainers and group bootcamps, but ended with what suits me the best: no gym and simple workouts at home on my yoga mat.
I have created 4 programmes for myself, covering the weekdays except Wednesday (my resting day). On top of that I have a goal to run 2 times a week. Everything on top of that is only the bonus workouts.
A normal week looks mostly like this: (ps. I do repeat 10 times 3 times)…
Monday: walking lunges, tight squats, plank 1 min, pushups
Tuesday: squats with lifting a weight overhead, situps, the dragon (a static yoga position), dips
Thursday: leg-curl on bosu-ball, cradle, dumbbell press over head, “the ice skater” meaning you jump from one leg to the other.
Friday: Step ups, wide squats, pank sideways, deadlifts, beach press (usually with a heavy book or something).
Saturday / Sunday: running / walking
I created this little programme myself based on my limited knowledge so this is no professional programme but it works for me. I keep this programme in my iphone inside the ibook app and open it each morning when it is time to sweat a little. Normally it takes me 15-20 minutes to do these programmes and it gives me a good start of the day.
Have a great day and feel free to give me feedback or suggest new exercises and, do you workout and how? Hugs!
