I'm gearing up to start teaching group exercise classes again. I've been working out 6-7 days a week for 30-60 minutes depending on the day. I rotate between cardio interval workouts, cardio with strength training, kickboxing, running, and the Insanity workouts on DVD. I'm almost back to my pre-pregnancy weight, but still working on toning up.
I hope that through this journey, you've been able to find a way to fit in a daily workout. Being moderately active for most days of the week will lead to better overall physical health. I encourage you to step it up, try to get in 30 min at least 5 days a week. And if you are already doing that, then challenge yourself to a harder and/or longer workout.
Also, keep changing things up. Your body adapts if you have been doing the same routine - shake it up! Its good to shock your body by doing different routines and by challenging your muscles.
As always, consult a doctor before beginning a new routine and listen to your body. Take water breaks and stretch at the end of each workout.
Below you will find a few workout ideas. I've included a link to a beginner's running routine, a circuit workout, and a few tougher cross-fit routines (high intensity cardio and strength). Maybe it is time to change up your workout routine or just start a new adventure.
