We’re wrapping up the weekend and for many of us, Saturday and Sundays are rest days. This is a good time to give your body a break and take advantage of letting your muscles fully recover. It’s also a time to prepare for the upcoming week of training.
Days & Body Parts
It’s been said we don’t plan to fail, yet we fail to plan. So we encourage you to take this time to plan your workouts for each body part for the rest of the week. Below is a sample workout schedule:
→ Monday: Chest and biceps
→ Tuesday: Back
→ Wednesday: Abs and calves
→ Thursday: Legs
→ Friday: Shoulders and triceps
Now that you have your days planned out on which body parts will be trained it’s time to plan the details of each workout. For this example, we’ll use Monday’s workout. See the sample workout for chest and triceps below:
→ Bench Press: 3 sets x 8-10 reps
→ Incline Bench Press: 3 sets x 10 reps
→ Cable Flies: 3 sets x 12 reps
→ Dumbbell Curls: 3 sets x 10 reps
→ Preacher Curls: 3 sets x 12 reps
You can now start planning the details of your other workouts based on the chest and biceps workout above. You can write this down in a notebook or use your iPhone or Smartphone (Notes or Note Pad). Or you may just look at this prior to your workout. The goal is to have a plan.
