So here I am at the last day of the first two weeks of the new workout plan. I made it through, I am not injured and am building up enthusiasm. After punching through a leg workout I have come to a decision that I want to change my workout schedule once again. Rather than doing 30 minutes of cardio on the treadmill every other day I want to do just 10 minutes each day at a higher pace. It will be the warmup to the strength training session. This certainly doesn’t leave out taking nice calm walks during or at the end of the day, but doing it early in the morning seems to lead to a greater appetite throughout the day.
It has been proven that we get more out of small sessions of intense cardio than we do from long drawn out ones. Along with this it has also been proven that strength training burns more fat than cardio. Where you find lean muscle mass you will also find less fat. It also accounts for better muscle to bone connectivity, a healthier immune system and better overall health.
So the new routine will look like this:
Monday- 10 Minutes Cardio, CHEST Routine
Tuesday- 10 Minutes Cardio, BACK Routine
Wednesday- 10 Minutes Cardio, ARMS Routine
Thursday- 10 Minutes Cardio, SHOULDERS Routine
Friday- 10 Minutes Cardio, ABS Routine
Saturday- 10 Minutes Cardio, LEGS Routine
Sunday- Day of Rest
I will continue in the same path of doing just one set of each exercise but will gradually raise the weight to the point where doing just 12 reps is a challenge. When I feel comfortable enough I will raise the the sets on each exercise to 2.
I warned you that although I put together a routine that things may change and after just two weeks of positive thinking and concentrated efforts of physical exercise I am already moving forward.
