Fitness is becoming a larger part of American culture. However, there is a specific portion of the population who are looking for increasingly difficult workouts. This workout schedule is designated for this portion of the population.
I work out six days a week with one day of rest the first week of the month. Sunday is typically taken as my rest day. Cardio is done one Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Strength training is reserved for Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. All strength training days include an ab workout. My work out varies week to week in order to keep seeing results. For cardio on Monday, I use the Bowflex Treadclimber, set on a speed of 4.0 for 60 minutes. This burns up to four times the calories compared to a regular treadmill. Tuesday I use the “strength” DVD as included in the Insanity workout set. Wednesday I use “The PIT” workout which utilizes cage fighting and martial arts to increase cardio capacity. Thursday I use “Back and Biceps” included in the P90X DVD set. Friday I use “Game Day” DVD as included in the Insanity DVD set. Saturday I use “Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps” DVD as included in the P90X exercise program. On all strength days, I use “Ab Ripper X” a supplement included on the P90X DVD’s.
The second week of the month is focused on cardio. This week consists of a five day workout. Monday I use “Speed and Agility” an Insanity DVD. Tuesday I use “Vertical Plyo” an Insanity DVD. Wednesday I use the Bowflex Treadclimber, set at a speed of 4.0 for 60 minutes. Thursday I use “Game Day” an Insanity DVD. Friday I use the Bowflex Treadclimber set at a speed of 4.0 for 60 minutes. This cardio week allows for a break in strength training.
The third week of the month is a repeat of the first week. This allows enough variation for the first week to still be effective and can be repeated several times.
The fourth week of the month is focused on strength training. This workout routine is five days out of the week. Monday I use the “Back and Biceps” DVD in the P90X workout system. Tuesday I use “Back to Core” in the Insanity DVD program. Wednesday I use the “Chest and Back” DVD in the P90X program. Thursday I use “The PIT” workout. Friday I use the “Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps” DVD included in the P90X workout set.
Prior to finding these DVD’s my workouts were varied and proved ineffective. After finding these DVDs and combining them in a hybrid setting, the difference was blatantly obvious. While this workout schedule is challenging, the benefits and muscle discrepancy can be seen after a few weeks.
