I finished a 28-day workout program on Sunday, May 15. It was a proud day for me and not because I had results that would make your head spin round. No, I was proud because I took on an intense new workout style, made a 28-day commitment to it and saw it right up until the very last rep. Today I am starting a new 5 week workout program.
5 Week Workout Program
Here is a post midway through this last workout.
The “finale” had me excited for these 3 reasons….
- Progress. When I began, all push ups were done on my knees. By the end, all push ups were done the traditional way. A week later I even practiced some traveling push ups to engage my core even more! My times and/or the amount of weight I used also significantly improved!
- Intensity. After 28 days, I was back to appreciating the super intense workouts that allow me to be in-and-out, won-and-done with my workouts in an hour or less!
- What’s Yet to Come….
I took a couple weeks “off” post-program to just let my body rest a little bit and do some random workouts. That was just enough time to have me craving the intensity and structure again! Today I began a new 5-week workout program. It’s my own, but I have pulled pieces of the BCx Workout Program and placed them into my own program.
Since I’ve decided to run a 10k around the 4th of July, I’ll be doing more running during these next 5 weeks via intervals and speed training.
My 5-week Workout Program looks like this:
- Monday: Run + Abs
- Tuesday: Legs + Abs
- Wednesday: Run + Upper Body Circuit (Bicep, Tricep, Shoulder)
- Thursday: Back + Chest + Abs
- Friday: Run + Abs
- Saturday: Total Body
- Sunday: Rest
Since today is Tuesday, I did the Legs + Abs Workout. I was so excited to begin this new program that I hit the gym around 6 am! See Leg Workout V for today’s full workout! And yes….a piece of the BCx Boot Camp Workout Program was included!
Getting fit and healthy will not progress on its own. You are the only one who can get it started and keep it going!
You will heal. I will help.
