Staying active is a big part of my life. It’s become even more of a focus as an adult since my job is sedentary. Today I’m sharing my workout routine. I change it up often, but this is the most current.
I’ve been following the 5-Factor Fitness routine, which prescribes five 25 minute workouts a week broken down into 5 minute segments: warmup, two strength exercises, abs, and 5 minutes (or more) of cardio.
My Workout Routine
Here’s what a week of workouts looks like for me at the moment:
Monday: Chest, quads, upper abs + 1 hour brisk walk
Tuesday: Hamstrings, back, obliques + 3 mile run
Wednesday: Cardio day – walk, run, or elliptical
Thursday: Chest, quads/hams, lower abs + 1 hour brisk walk
Friday: Shoulders, back, transverse abs + 3 mile run
Saturday: Biceps, triceps, total abs + 1 hour any cardio
Sunday: Rest day
The rep schemes in this program are designed to create a tight, lean figure, rather than a bulky one, which is my personal preference. I love how easy it is to follow since you just need dumbbells and a bench. The results are amazing for a five week program. Definitely check out the reviews on Amazon if you’re interested.
Staying Motivated and Prepared
- I workout when I have the most energy. Recently that’s been 10am or 4pm.
- Having everything in my gym bag the night before ensures I don’t have an excuse to skip out on my workout.
- Staying hydrated and sleeping well help me recover. I sip on 3 liters of water each day and it’s lights out by 9:30pm.
