I hope you're excited about a bright new month and a chance to set and achieve your goals. My goal for March? I am going to CRUSH it at the gym. I have a medical procedure at the end of the month, and initially, it made me feel discouraged. It was easy for me to think, "It's not worth working hard because I'll just have to take time off to recover soon anyway." I could see myself wallowing and letting the anxiety interfere with my workouts and life. Instead, I'm choosing to do the opposite. I'm going to use this as motivation to work hard doing the active things I love so when I'm back in the game, I'll be starting from 70% instead of 0. Will you join me? Let's make March an awesome one, and a great push towards whatever goal you're working towards.
Here is a workout calendar for March, which is a variety of strength, cardio, core and rest. As always, feel free to modify or shuffle according to your unique needs. Talk to a doctor before making any fitness changes.
6: Tempo cardio: warm up 5-7 minutes at a moderate pace. Maintain a steady, moderate pace and incline for 10 minutes. Increase your speed to an uncomfortable, but manageable speed and hold for 10 minutes. Take it back down to your base pace and hold for 10 minutes.
20: Speed blitz: warm up for 5-7 minutes at a moderate pace and incline. Increase your speed every 5 minutes, so that by minute 25, you are sprinting. Hold this speed for 2 minutes, then gradually decrease it back down. Cool down and stretch.
My post baby bod plan launches NEXT WEEK! These are the steps I took to safely resume exercise after Liv and P were born, build back lean muscle, and increase my energy levels. It includes a comprehensive 12-week fitness plan, and our tester group experienced incredible results. It will be available next week, along with the launch of postbabybod.com, which will be packed with info for prenatal fitness and nutrition from myself and a handful of experts and friends. I hope you'll join us for the virtual launch party, and would love your help spreading the word to any friends who may be interested.
Sending lots of love and healthy wishes to you! xoxo Gina
