Weekly Workout II

If you’re planning on following along with me for the workouts, please plan on spending at least 15-30 seconds stretching each muscle. Also attempt to do each stretch at least twice to make sure you’ve thoroughly stretched the muscle while it’s warm for proper growth and flexibility gains.

Remember: It is important to target as many different muscle groups as possible to prevent boredom and maintain motivation.

You can do your workout any time of the day that works best for you. I go by how much energy I have in the morning. If I’m up for it, I’ll workout in the morning. If I’m not, I’ll do it after work. It’s so important to get enough sleep. Don’t let getting up early for a workout prevent you from being well-rested for everything else.

If, for whatever reason, you cannot make it to the gym, try to at least do a little meditation walk at lunch time or any time you’re able. It helps to get your moving for the day and gives you time to clear your head if the day’s stress is getting to you. I often like to listen to Kara Lowenthiel’s UnfckYourBrain podcast depending on whatever happens to be ailing me or resonates with me throughout the day.
