How to Design your Week of Workouts

I keep seeing many of you signing up for strength workouts back to back or high intensity workouts back to back.

Working out is amazing! My workouts are my sanity, my antidepressant, my saving grace. At The Mix we are all about finding what you love.

If Strength training is what love that's awesome!

If you are doing Strength Training workouts and you are truly getting to muscle fatigue and challenging your body at each workout then you are reaping huge benefits:

-Boosted metabolism

-More durable body

-Better Posture

-Less body aches and pain

-Improvement in sports and in your daily activities

If you want to get these benefit then you have to give you body time to recover in between workouts.

If you are doing strength workouts two or three days in a row you are just breaking down your body and you are not building that lean muscle mass that creates that boosted metabolism and other benefits mentioned above.

So how do you design a week of workouts that is ideal for:

Building Strength

Boosting your metabolism

Feeling good

Preventing Injury

Follow these simple guidelines

-Find what you like

-Schedule in 2-3 strength workouts each week with at least one whole day in between

-Schedule in some high intensity cardio in between

-Schedule in some yoga or other balance and flexibility/mobility work in between

-Listen to your body and rest when needed.

Here are two examples of a well balanced week:

Example #1

Monday - Cardio Core

Tuesday - Mix Total Body

Wednesday - Dance Cardio or Cardio Core or Yoga or Rest Day

Thursday- Yoga

Friday - Mix Total Body

Saturday - Rest Day

Sunday- Yoga

Example #2

Monday - Pilates

Tuesday - Relax and Restore

Wednesday- Dance Cardio or Cardio Core

Thursday - No Equipment Strength

Friday - Yoga or Rest

Saturday - Mix Total Body or No Equipment Strength

Sunday - Rest or Yoga or Relax and Restore
