I love a brand new week . . . fresh start, blank slate, so many opportunities!
My favorite way to begin each week is by creating an intentional to-do list. I do this in the ‘notes’ section of my phone so that I can refer back to it to revise/edit throughout the week. I start by thinking of 3 words that I really want to embody that week. This week, I chose intentional, productive, and humble. Every time I check my to-do list over the course of the week, I’ll be reminded of my intentions. I encourage you to give this a try this week!
I also like to start my week with a good workout . . . this sets the tone for an active and productive week, and I LOVE feeling accomplished before even getting to work on a Monday morning! Here is today’s Back & Biceps workout . . . I’m doing this one, too — do it with me?!
Here are some of my T O P T R A I N I N G T I P S:
- Choose a moderate weight. The last couple of reps should be challenging. Push yourself . . . growth happens when you’re uncomfortable!
- Slow down your movement and focus on the mind-muscle connection. This takes practice, but the exercises are far more effective when done slowly and in a controlled movement than quickly and without control.
- Keep your heart rate up! I love to superset exercises to cut back on rest time, and I try to keep my rest time at a minimum throughout the entire workout. You can rest when you’re done!
Hope this helps! Are you working out with me today?! As always, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions and/or comments!
Here’s to a happy and healthy week!
