Fitness has become such a passion of mine the past few years. But it wasn't until recently that I found what works best for my body. Exercising is not only good for you psychically, but mentally too. I feel like people forget how important it is for your head! I love this quote, you never regret doing a workout, and it is so true!
This is my ideal weekly fitness schedule! This does not always happen because of life lol, but I try to make it work even if the schedule gets switched around!
I personally love weight training. I have tried soo many different workouts- I've tried barre classes, pilates reformer classes, spin classes and dance classes. As much as I love those types of classes, I felt like I did not see the results I wanted.
I have found that weight training has been the workout where I see the most progress and overall toning. This is the strongest I have ever felt and my body is the best it has ever looked.
I try to workout 5 days a week. I focus on 2-3 body parts a day. I usually do 3 or 4 exercises for each body part I am exercising that day.
I do 3 sets (3 rounds) of 8, 10 or 20 reps (this is usually for abs) depending on the exercise!
I also recently bought a Peloton and I have been riding 2-3 times a week for 20-30 minute sessions. Also, this is what works for me! Every person is different, every body is different. The dumbbell weights I use and the number of reps I do, work for me. Don't rush into something until you are ready! It took me a long time to figure out what works for me and my body. This is only to help and maybe inspire you to keep trying to figure out what works best for you!
