21 Day Exercise Plan – 7/07 – 7/28

Recap

The last 21 days went well. Not a ton of weight loss, but some fat went away. I want to reiterate that you cannot rely on working out to manage weight. Weight management is about diet, rest and exercise. There are other factors that impact diet as well like stress management and your physical condition such as thyroid activity. So following my plan may not benefit you. If you are looking for some help with a personalized wellness plan then talk to some real trainers – Jennifer Coles on facebook or email Matt Altomare.

The Plan

This plan is set up to have three sessions over 4 days. Each session focuses on a different part of the body. You do session A then B then C then have a rest day and repeat. Session A and C starts with the same warm up and all sessions end with the same cool down.

  • Warm up (A and C only)

    Start on the treadmill. 2 minutes at incline of 1.5 and speed of 3. Then a steady jog starting at a speed of 4.5 and raise the speed .5 every minute till you reach a heart rate of 180.

  • Cool Down

    Swim 8 laps in the 50 meter pool. Resting about 1 to 2 minutes between laps and stretching during the rest period.
