Welcome to this week’s workout schedule! We have an excellent week of workouts on the agenda. We are starting off strong with my Brand New Total Body Sculpt & Burn: Tabata and Strength Training Workout.
Grab some dumbbells, and a bottle of water, and you are ready to go for Day 1! It’s intense, but I think you are going to enjoy having our special guest, Janelle, demonstrate some great modifications throughout the workout video.
For Day 2 we are moving on to the Extended Plank Workout. It’s a low impact workout routine. You can always incorporate some of the Wrist Friendly modifications that Janelle demonstrated in our Day 1 workout routine, if your wrists need a break. Plank exercises can also be performed while holding onto dumbbells, or pushup bars, or with your forearms on the floor. Keeping the wrists in a neutral (instead of flexed) position, reduced pressure through the carpal tunnel.
Day 3: We have a 15-Minute Total Body Workout Routine on the schedule. When focusing on quick, but intense workouts, it’s great to complete compound exercises that incorporate multiple muscle groups. This helps build overall strength. If you are up to it, grab some dumbbells, and add a quick 5-minute arm workout to this routine.
Day 4: Today we have a Total Body 20-Minute HIIT. This is a fun and challenging routine for your entire body. It will give you a great burn, while helping you build strength and endurance.
Day 5: We have another 20-Minute Per Round Total Body Workout on the plan for today. This routine alternates dumbbell and body weight exercises. The resistance training, is a great way to add some muscle sculpting into our workout week. Grab some dumbbells, and a sturdy chair or stability ball. If you don’t have a chair handy, you can also perform the exercises, while lying facedown on the floor.
Day 6: Wind down the week with a 15-Minute Total Body Workout. This short, but effective routine can be completed once, or repeated to amp up the intensity.
Day 7: Rest! You’ve earned it!
