I believe that it’s good to have role models, and I love being around others who are awesome at what they do. Their passion rubs off on me and keeps me going. Hopefully, this blog will inspire you to get moving, stay moving or will inspire you as an athlete to add home workouts to your routine. It’s my goal to prove that it really doesn’t take a pile of money to get & stay strong and healthy. But it does take determination, self-motivation and a plan.
Up to this point, I haven’t really thought much about how I plan my workouts. It’s usually done by what looks good enough to suffer through or how I feel that morning. I realize, though, that I need to schedule my video selections so that I work every part of my body at least once each week. I also need to sprinkle in some yoga & pilates.
Each YouTube or iPad App workout will now fit into this rotation:
- Cardio Workout – 20-60 minutes – kickboxing, low or high impact aerobics, tabatas, HIT training – The I want to die… give it all you’ve got, Captain type of workouts.
- Upper Body – plus a 10 minute quick cardio session
- Abs and Cardio
- Lower Body - plus a 10 minute quick cardio session
- Total Body Sculpt and Tone with or without cardio
- Pilates or Yoga
Repeat … Repeat… and Repeat…
I think that this should add some methodology to the Get Fit with iPad madness and will allow me (and you!) to get fitter, quicker because the routine changes everyday. I can’t guarantee that though, so don’t come after me with knives and pitch forks (or bad reviews and comments) if it doesn’t work.
On the note of inspiration, what does inspire you to keep going when the waters get rough? What makes you just keep swimming?
