How to Create a Workout Schedule

Tips to take that blank page and create the perfect workout schedule for you! Create: Guudmorning!

This post is a part of Back to Basics Week, a week where we share fabulous how-to and beginner’s content to get you and your fitness kicked off and up for fall!

There seem to be a lot of “rules” when it comes to working out—when to, when not to, what to do, what not to do and in what order—which can be off-putting to those just starting out. If you don’t know how to do it properly, what’s the point of doing it at all, right?

There is no right or wrong when it comes to fitness, especially if you are just starting out. Yes, there is a correct way and an incorrect way to throw hundreds of pounds up over your head, but if you are new to exercise, anything you do is going to be positive for your health. Don’t get trapped in the thinking that even something so small as walking around the block isn’t worth the effort. It’s always worth it. There are some general guidelines, however, which you can easily use to structure effective exercise into your life, even if you’ve never so much as curled a dumbbell.

Here’s the thing with working out: there are a few rules, but you have enough flexibility that no two people’s workout schedule looks the same. The important thing is to find the right combination that allows you to stick with it. There are three general components to an effective exercise plan: cardio, strength training and flexibility.

    Developing your own workout routine can be a bit difficult for some, and this post is really helpful. And better to keep track of everything so you’ll know your progress.

  2. Lynn says:

    It’s always the commitment and dedication to do and follow your workout and diet plan.

  3. This article is a big help for keeping track of workout routines. Personally, even on my rest days I like to keep myself moving with simple chores. I either clean the house or go for a walk around town. It’s important to keep your body active.

    When you know what’s good for you, you can always find time to fit in a good workout. It does not matter what time of the day it is, as long as you put in the work. I sometimes sneak in some weight lifting before work. Sometimes I do it after work. Don’t forget the cardio, though.

  5. Denmark says:

    I truly believe that creating a workout schedule is really important as it also teaches us to be committed into doing it!

  6. Shane says:

    What’s important is you enjoy what you’re doing. If you do, you can slip it into your schedule any day of the week. Do it at least three times a week.

    Just find time to exercise. It can be just walking, jogging, or just keep moving. Cleaning the house is good too.

  8. Sharon says:

    There are also certain exercises which you can do in your office chair. Long walks also are great exercise. Cleaning the house too. There’s no reason not to move your body.

  9. Denmark says:

    Thank you so much. This is quite basics but still really informative.

    This is a wonderful information. Having your own fitness schedule is up to you. All you need is that you really are dedicated about being fit. Eating the right amount of foods rich in amino acids can help you lose weight and build more protein in the body.
