Remember our two goals yesterday? Today we have two new goals: Identify which are your strong and weak muscle groups. Second, we want to continue building on the workout routine that we have already started.
The definition of routine: A regular course of procedure. Regular is the keyword here, my friend. What we start, we continue with.
You need to answer the following questions for the future progress.
Do you find it easy to run long distances at a fairly slow pace? Or do you prefer quick and fast sprints?
Do you easily gain weight around the stomach (the good old beer keg and waist handles syndrome)?
The key exercises will be strenghtening your core and increasing your cardiovascular abilities. In short, we want you to be able to keep up the pace when working out, we will focus on HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). It’s time to step up the workout regime a bit.
Time to work those arms..
And let’s give the legs some attention..
A brisk walk for 20 minutes. I’m guessing you have a lunch break that you want to make the most of. Don’t we all want a longer lunch break. Well, fit in this 20 minute walk.
You just had your dinner and let it digest for a while. Or you just arrived home from work and are starving. All I need is 10 minutes of your time.
We will continue with the core workout, as follows:
You have just completed day 2 of the 42 day workout.
Add your progress to your diary. Mention what you found difficult and what came easy to you.
The intensity you will continue with depends entirely on own personal progress. You are only competing with yourself. Keep picturing that beach with you swaggering down it with headds turning to check you out.
You are already well on your way to become more fit.
See you tomorrow. 😉
