Yesterday was the second day of my New Training Program 90 Days to Summer. This Training Program was inspired by the 75-Hard Workout/ Healthy Lifestyle Trend. I wanted to design a program that would keep me accountable to work out every day of the week without putting a huge toll on my body. So the main goal of this program is to keep soreness and inflammation to a minimum so that whoever participates in this program can go on a streak of 90 days f working out at different levels. I have programmed in active rest days on days after heavy workouts and have but in core days because most people find those the hardest (I Know I Do). This Daily blog will be a journal of how the day went and what changes I will make for the next program.
Day two consists of a Core Interval Workout plus a 15-minute walk. I designed this program to have a couple of core workouts each day for the sole reason that most people do not like to do Ab Workouts myself included. So the first thing to making anything a routine is to make it easy. These first couple of phases offer 1-2 exercises for non-core days and a 15-minute core interval on Core days with a 10-15 minute walk or cardio session.
One of the things that I learned later year is how to make things a habit from reading James Clears Atomic Habits. If you have not read it I would absolutely recommend reading it if you have bad habits that you want to fix or even good habits that you want to improve. But the
the first step is to make it easy and that is all about what these first 2 phases are about.Leave book recommendations in the comments!
The Purpose of this Program is to improve your aesthetics primarily but it also helps to improve your confidence. I think the big thing about people wanting to work out or live a healthier lifestyle is that it is a hard roadblock because it takes time to get the results we want. We are a society that likes to have things given to us instantly and we don't like to wait for things to come naturally. Fitness and exercise are things that take time you have to put in a lot of work. But doing so pushes us to live better in a physical state but also in a mental state.
The reason for me doing this program is so that I can prove to myself that I can go 3 months and do what is needed because even as a personal trainer there are days that I don't want to go to the gym and I just want to lay on my butt. But when it comes down to it I want to show that I can push myself to do 90 Days of exercise.
Full Plank, Ab Crunch, Bicycle Crunch, Cross Crunch, Lying Leg Raise, and Single Leg (left and Right Leg Raise)
This interval took about 15-20 minutes and the difficult part were the cross crunch right after the bicycle crunch. The Single leg raises did not engage the core as much as I wanted it to so I will change those to another core workout like Heel Taps and Reverse Crunches. After one whole session, I think reorganizing would be best in this order:
Full Plank, Ab Crunch, Heel Taps, Bicycle Crunch, Reverse Crunch, Cross CRunch, and Lying Leg Raises
Total Calories Burned:
In this 40-minute workout, I burned 250 Cals between the core interval and also the 15-minute walk. I burned 125 Cals for both workouts, The goal is to try and burn at least 300 Calories in each workout. For my total active calories burned in the day was 715 Cals which brings my total to 1,671 Cals from 02/28-03/01.
