Creating Your Workout Schedule
Now that you know the requirements, you can mix and match them to your existing schedule and personal taste. Pick your days off and stick to them. For some, the weekend may be the easiest time to take a break. For others, certain days in the middle of the week may work best as rest days.
Come up with a weekly schedule, write it down like you would your work schedule, and stick to it. Not everyone’s will look the same, but a common example is:
Monday: cardio, strength training (upper body)
Wednesday: cardio strength training (lower body)
Thursday: cross training
Friday: cardio, strength training (lower body)
Building a workout schedule is easy—it’s sticking to it that’s hard. Look at your workouts like appointments and think of yourself as your most important client.
Do you stick to a regular workout schedule? Or do you fly by the seat of your pants once you enter the gym? —Kelly
