One of my goals as a trainer is to educate my clients and students so they can grow mentally as well as physically. It’s easy to just go through the motions but making the connection between your mind and body is important. This can also be an opportunity for you to learn how programming works and to learn vocabulary.
I want to start by saying that you do not have to workout seven days a week. Rest days are just as important as workout days, especially active rest days. An active rest day is a day where you make sure to move your body in some way shape or form. It can be as simple as a walk around the block, or more workout related like going through a longer version of your warm up, or even taking a gentle yoga class. I usually recommend five days of training and two days of active rest.
How to set up a workout routine
If you are looking for the top results you can get, training four or five days is going to be your best bet. So even three to four days would be great. I am going to offer five workouts presented in a Monday-Friday format. However, you can break them down however you would like. If you would rather split up your rest days you could do rest on Wednesday and Friday, or whatever works for your schedule. Keep in mind that with so many other coaches offering their services, I think it would be great to mix in something else if that makes you happy. So if you did calisthenics workouts on Monday and Tuesday, Wednesday would be a great day to throw in a yoga class. If it’s a gentle yoga class it can be used as an active rest day, if it’s a little more strenuous it can be used instead of a calisthenics class. Aside from that there is only one more thing to always check in with, your own body. If your body is asking for a rest day, it’s ok to take it even if it’s not in the schedule. Fitness is supposed to make you feel good, so take cues from your body when needed and make smart decisions.
Below is a four week workout program, 5 full body workouts plus a core workout. Included is a pre workout active warm up as well as a video of post workout static stretches. Always perform a warm up before your workout and a stretch afterwards to prevent injury and promote better results.
