My Weekly Workout Regimen
Always on the Go
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been a busy person. The busier I am, the more I find my workouts suffer. While it’s definitely normal to miss a day or two here or there, the key to experiencing visible results is to create a workout regimen
but if you want to experience visible results, the key is to create a workout regimen
Right now, my workout inspiration is looking and feeling my best for my wedding day! So, my weekly workout regimen is designed to help keep me at my optimal weight while also building and toning muscle.
Here is a look at my daily workout routine:
On Mondays, Nick and I head over to the UFC gym where he trains me. I do 50 minutes of high intensity interval training (HIIT) which consists of:
10 minute warm-up run
2 minutes cardio step jumping up and down on the tire
2 minutes of flipping a tire (40 lbs) back and forth across the gym
2 minutes rope swings
2 minutes roundhouse kicks left leg
2 minutes roundhouse kicks right leg
Repeat the above two more times (a total of 15 minutes should be completed of resistance training)
5 minutes of core, ab, and oblique exercises
Stretch for 5 minutes (yoga movements)

Tuesday i devote to cardio, doing 22 minutes on the treadmill that includes intervals of:
1 minute at 3.0 mph
1 minute at 5.5 mph
1 minute at 7.0 mph
Repeat the cycle above for 22 minutes
3 minutes of stretching
Resistance training with Maria Leguizamon at Columbian Mafia Fit a which lasts 60 minutes
I do a 50 minute HIIT class at Psycho which consists of lower body and abs. This class is super intense and includes squat jumps, burpees, lunges, step ups, jumping jacks with weight, and a ton of core workouts. The last 10 minutes of class is yoga so it’s great for a cool down!
I finish the work week with 25 minutes of cardio that includes intervals of:
1 minute at 3.5 mph
1 minute at 6.0 mph
1 minute at 7.5 mph
Repeat the cycle above for 25 minutes
5 minutes of stretching
I attend a Pilates level 1 class.
Rest day and hang with the family! However, some of our favorite family activities are swimming and hiking so we still get some exercise in!
So there you have it; my weekly workout routine in a nutshell! When creating your own routine, make sure you scale your workouts for your experience and strength levels. Under or overdoing it can be equally as problematic, so be sure to find the right balance for you!
