Calendar #9 DONE!! Keep up the great work girls. You CAN do this!
I turned 50 (!!!) this week and if I can do it, so can you. I believe in you. See below for my take on all the calendars I’ve completed so far.
January: Barre Sculpt & Strong = very enjoyable and a great way to get started on a calendar. Each workout is about 20-30 minutes and they are definitely ones I come back to because they use your muscles in a very different way.
February: Strong & Lean = great way to start building up on weights. I started with 3-5 lbs to avoid injury and build up my muscles.
March: Serious Strength = this is the month I could really see my strength building and overall improvement in my fitness. Easily moved to 8-10 lbs weights after February!
April: Muscle Max Out = this one is where I saw the most change in my body. I love the “no repeat” workouts! By the end of the month I was using 15 lbs weights and starting to see results.
May: 28-Day Shred = lots of GOLD workouts that are fun and go by fast. This is the month I could really see the benefit of stretch days and realized how much I love Pilates.
June: Lift & Punch = lots of variety on this one. HIIT, Barre, strength, it’s all in there and I’m starting to figure out what I like and what I don’t, what my body likes, and when to rest.
July: Boost Your Immunity = this is a GOLD calendar and the workouts are long. You have to have time to do this one to be successful at it but it’s got some great workouts. For some of the workouts, you need a step to complete them, so either substitute or get yourself a step for maximum success.
August: HIIT It Hard = this calendar has a lot of repeats but it’s fun to see progress from the beginning of the month to the end. I substituted GOLD HIITs for the split days because I don’t like stopping and starting. You’ll really up your cardio game with this one.
September: Fall Firm Up = I highly recommend this calendar for anyone. It’s got super fun workouts and an excellent variety of weights and cardio. No special equipment is needed besides hand weights. I loved the variety of this one. It was perfect for going into this busier time of year and a can definitely see new definition in my arms, chest, and legs. Try it!
1. Go at your own pace but push yourself. You can do more than you think!
2. Take rest days when they are listed. Your body will respond better in the following days for better results.
3. Make room for stretching – if it sounds boring, do Pilates. Pilates will stretch you while you challenge your muscles too.
4. Substitute as needed, either for soreness or enjoyment. I don’t do yoga so I sub other fun workouts in and have found some real gems that I go back to over and over.
5. Have fun! There’s so much variety on GHUTV you can’t help but find something you love. ROCK on!
