It is important to have a goal when planning your workouts. I decided to plan my workouts for the next 4 weeks. Each week will have a different focus, with the ultimate goal of building some strength and muscle.
Week 1 – Work 1-2 body parts per day, with a heavy weight for 6-8 reps, do one full body workout per week, and cardio 3 times, 2 of which will be interval training
Week 2 – Work 1-2 body parts per day, with a weight that allows 8-10 reps, do one full body workout, and cardio 3 times, 2 will be intervals
Week 3 – Work each body part 2 times by working Upper body one day, Lower body the next, Cardio 4 times, 2 being intervals
Week 4 – Do full body circuit training every other day. On non working days, do cardio and abs.
The first two weeks are full strength and muscle, the second 2 weeks are for endurance and fat loss.
A further breakdown will be planning each weeks exercises. Having the plan ready and available will keep me focused with a greater chance of success.
