Need a plan for your next workout? How about your next seven workouts? Oh, we’ve got a plan for you! Like I said yesterday, I do well when I have a specific course of action, so challenges like Sara Haley‘s FBG-exclusive challenge are perfect for me. Plus it starts with super-short workouts and builds over the course of the week — but you’re never doing more than 30 minutes! Perfect for moms trying to fit it in whenever you can, right? Right!
How the Workout Challenge Works
Most of the exercises require no equipment, but you will need free weights for a few of the exercises in this workout. Try 8 to 12 pounds, depending on the exercise and your level of conditioning. You’ll do each exercise for 30 seconds, rest for 15 seconds and then repeat. That means you are doing each exercise twice. On Day 1, you’ll begin with four exercises because the first two are warm-up exercises. Each day after, two exercises are added, one with a cardio element and the other conditioning. This means that on Day 1 you will be working out for just 6 minutes and by Day 7, your workout will be 30 minutes! There are descriptions and pictures for each exercise, as well as modifications (M) for a few of them. Please use these if you are pregnant, injured or the exercise doesn’t feel quite right to you. Never hesitate to modify, modify, modify!
