One thing I know for sure when I plan out a workout schedule is that it will have to be flexible. My schedule will need to change daily, weekly, seasonally-and it should! That’s what keeps things interesting and keeps you progressing.
I have a rough idea of what I want my days/weeks to look like fitness-wise but I also know that, as a mom of a two year old, I may have to alter things at the last minute. So here is a look at what my schedule is going to look like this summer…
MONDAYS- 15 minute Yoga practice (at home) + 1 hr Cardio Tap class OR 1 hr Dance Fitness class
TUESDAYS- 1 hr Toning Boot Camp Class OR 15 minute HIIT home workout + 1 hr Restorative Yoga Class
WEDNESDAYS- 15 minute HIIT home work + Hike or Bike
THURSDAYS- 15 minute HIIT home workout + 1 hr Yoga Flow Class OR 1 hr Toning Boot Camp Class
FRIDAYS- 1 hr Restorative Yoga Class OR Rest Day + Stretching
WEEKENDS- Family Hiking or Biking
What Works For Me…
- I have a couple of workout options for each day and I plan to do my best to keep things balanced out between yoga, cardio, and toning. I also need to make sure that I’m working legs, arms, abs, etc equally.
- A couple of times per week I’ll put the kiddo in the bike trailer and we’ll ride over to the park or the library and I try to turn that in to my workout.
- On the weekends we almost always bike or hike as a family when the weather is nice.
- I find that I thrive off of group fitness classes because I love feeling the energy and determination of my class mates. But because it’s not always feasible for me to get to a class, I try to keep a variety of workouts saved on Youtube, or printed out so I can do them at home if I need to. I’m learning to make the most of the at home workouts but it can be tough for me.
