My Workout Routine

My Workout Routine


Getting fit has always been a part of my life since I was 12 and now, it seems to be a very big part of my life. Over the years, I’ve been trying to incorporate the perfect fitness routine to fit with my everyday life. Since the new year, I think I may have figured out the perfect routine. Thought I’d share it with you in the hopes it may help you with your fitness quest (or not).

A.M. – HIIT session and front, oblique and lower abs.
Lunch – Leg and butt day.
Evening – Yoga.

A.M. – HIIT session and core abs.
Lunch – Shoulder day.

A.M. – HIIT session and front, oblique and lower abs.
Lunch – Arm day.
Evening – Yoga.

Rest day or TRX suspension training in the A.M.
(This depends on if I have any plans starting Friday right after work)

Rest day.

Working 9-5, sitting down all day, I always feel like a slump. I dislike sitting on my bum all day and decided that I wanted to be more productive during my hour lunch. The gym is only a 5 minute walk which is great! Going and working out at lunch was a good idea for sure. It helps me to de-stress from any work stress and to prepare my mind with a fresh start ready for the afternoon. Cardio in the morning, lifting weights at lunch. An hour is enough to fit in a lifting session, getting clean and getting back to work.

There are times where I have to run errands in town or go out for a team lunch. In that case, I would lift weights in the evening instead. Trying to find the perfect routine has made me realise that I need to be flexible at times.

A routine takes a while to adapt and finding one is a trial and error. You have got to learn to never give up. I will get my dream body I’ve always wanted!

Do you have a fitness routine?

    This is pretty similar to my own routine. I am trying to do yoga every morning, even if it is just 10 minutes.

    I'm impressed that you manage to work out three times a day! I never have time at lunch to workout as I always have work to do/ emails/ errands etc but I do try and work out 5 times a week generally cardio based though x

    Wow this is impressive! I used to live close enough to the gym to go in my lunch break but not anymore, which is really annoying 🙁

    Your fitness routine sounds very busy. At the moment I'm doing Insanity and I enjoy it a lot, for me it's easier to have an workout that I can do at home.

    Wow your routine is very inspiring! I have never had a proper gym routine before so this year I set about creating one. I go three times a week- tuesday, thursday and saturday and do 40 mins if im in the gym, pushing myself as hard as I can or a 1 hour class. Its not much compared to a lot but for me, I am working harder than ever before and love it! xxx

    I adore how you manage that. Sure you will benefit from it soon. Give me some inspiration to make some sweat as well. 🙂

    Wow, what a workout routine. I am working out two or three times with my Personal Trainer and then another 1-2 a home once I have my gym equipment shipped to Switzerland. I am also planning to start Yoga to improve my posture and flexibility.

    I'm super impressed! I'm struggling going 4 times a week, and you're killing it 2-3 times a day, 6 days a week, plus blogging and work! I'm going to call you superathlete!
