Copy and save this post if you want some help with your weekly fitness routine. It is long but it has tonnes of good info here for you.
You may have grand ideas about getting back into fitness or improving your training this but you are spinning your wheels as you don't know what to do at the gym.
Most people I speak to, including friends and colleagues, tell me that the biggest issue they have at the gym is feeling like a deer caught in headlights. They don't really know what to do outside of the classes.
They end up doing a "little bit of this" and a "little bit of that" before leaving feeling underwhelmed and more frustrated.
As a result of this I have provided a full week of training ideas complete with videos and demonstrations. You can use this for up to 1-3 months to get fit, lose a little bit of weight and do something positive for your health.
Below is the simple layout of a weekly program complete with videos and combines weights with cardio to give you a well-rounded fitness program that can be used for fat loss, toning or general fitness. I have even included home workouts to help.
Day 1: Weights Day 1
Day 2: Cardio
Day 3: Weights Day 2
Day 4: Cardio
Day 5: Weights Day 1 Again
On week two you would do the weights day two twice and the weights day one once and keep switching week to week for 4-8 weeks.
If you have only got a 4 day week you would do the following:
If you only have 3 days. Pick 2 weights and 1 cardio and do plenty of walking or pick 3 weights and do plenty of walking in between.
Try not to perform weights on consecutive days as these are full body programs designed to work a lot of muscles and it needs recovery between sessions.
If you are not a member of a gym try this:
Day 1: Home Strength Workout 1
Day 2: Home Cardio Workout 1
Day 3: Home Strength Workout 2
Day 4: Home Cardio Workout 2
Day 5: Home Strength Workout 1
On week two you would do the Home Strength two twice and the Home Strength Workout one once and keep switching week to week for 4-8 weeks.
If you only have 3-4 days, follow the same layout as the gym workout above.

I love helping busy men and women fit health and fitness into their demanding careers and get results without having to give up their lives to do so.
