Happy hump day, y’all! I’ve received requests from a few of you to share my workout routine. For the last year, I have been working hard to make working out part of my daily schedule and getting back into shape. I typically exercise four or five days a week depending on my weekly schedule and do a combination of cardio, weightlifting, and strength training.
Every week looks slightly different due to events and other things coming up, but for the most part here is my workout routine. I am by no means an expert, but I have had a lot of people ask about my workout routine. I hope this helps give you some ideas and inspiration!
I start my workout with a 20-30 minute cardio session – either on the elliptical, treadmill, or stationary bike. After warming up, I head over to the open exercise space and set up any equipment I need for Kayla Itsines’s BBG program. Mondays are leg day so I will set up and bench and grab a medicine ball to complete the leg workouts. Occasionally I will use the machines instead of doing BBG, but for the most part, I like to stick to BBG.
I start my workout with a 20-30 minute cardio session and then either go to my gym’s PumpRx class, which is a barbell class using light to moderate weights with lots of repetition, or the TreadRx class, which is a treadmill intervals class. If I go to the PumpRx class I usually do my cardio session on the elliptical or treadmill, and if I do the TreadRx class I will do a warm up on the stationary bike. I used to go to my PumpRx class every single Tuesday and Thursday, but now that I found the TreadRx class I try to mix it up. I am not much of a runner, but I do like the TreadRx class because it is coached by a trainer and done in intervals, so I find it to be easier and more fun than just running on my own.
On Wednesdays, I teach skating lessons after work so I can’t make it to the gym. But when I am teaching skating lessons, I am typically moving around on the ice and moving with the skaters.
My Thursdays are usually the same as my Tuesdays.
Friday is usually the day I don’t go to the gym because I have plans with Corey or friends. Since I am so good about going the rest of the week, I usually don’t mind having the night off. If I don’t make any plans, I will hit up the gym to do a quick 30-minute cardio session.
I also teach skating lessons on Saturdays and hit the gym before or after lessons. If I got before skating, I go to PumpRx or if I go after, I do a 20-30 minute cardio session and the BBG full body workout (usually done on Fridays in the BBG booklet).
Sundays are my rest day or I do an at home yoga/stretching session. It feels nice just to stretch so I take this easy day to stretch all of my muscles and prepare for the week ahead.
