WELCOME TO WEEKS 3 & 4 OF YOUR TRAINING PROGRAM

Great job in completing weeks 1 & 2. Regardless of how you performed over the last two weeks, now it’s time to look ahead and work hard for weeks 3 & 4. Your results are a direct reflection of your efforts and focus.

You should have noted your weights and reps on the Notepad app on your phone, or a small physical note book in weeks 1 & 2. Please refer back as you move forward. Again, each workout your goal is to increase in reps or weight. Free your mind and focus only on what you’re doing in each workout.

 

Round #2: (2 weeks)

 

GOAL: Exercise as many muscles a day as possible with repetition over the week to induce rapid change and development. Aims are to develop new lean muscle, muscle balance and to develop correct movement patterns.

You will notice the exercises are broken up into letter groupings. Perform each letter grouping together. So A1 and A2 are performed back to back until all sets and reps are completed. Then you move onto the B grouping, and so on.

Rest for the time noted for each exercise, and when the time is up, complete your second set under the same letter grouping. After the full sets on each exercise are completed you can rest for the time noted, then move onto the next exercise.

MONDAY - A DAY

TUESDAY - B DAY

WEDNESDAY - REST (10,000 Steps)

THURSDAY - A DAY

FRIDAY - B DAY

SATURDAY - Shoulders & Glutes

SUNDAY - REST

**10,000 Steps: Here you want to ensure you get in 10,000 steps on these days. Preferably this is done outside, but the treadmill is fine too. Total steps through the day can go towards this goal. There are many iPhone apps that will track your steps if you do not have a fitbit (don’t go buy one if you don’t have it).
