Don’t get lost in the sauce!
Sometimes thinking about what you’re going to work on in the gym can get overwhelming and a little confusing. I’m here to help!
Let’s break it down.
First, you NEED to know : after you’ve worked out a muscle, it takes 24 hours for that muscle to stop burning calories.
Imagine if you were going to work for a 24 hour shift with no potty break, no snack break, no water break and you had to stay standing the entire shift. How would you feel after? Like you would need 48 more hours of rest before doing another shift like that, right? EXACTLY! Same thing goes for your muscles. Each time you work on your abs, your abs complete that 24 hour burn and still need 2 more days of rest before you should work them out again. SO, what muscles to work on when? Easy.
Think about every day life.
When you PUSH something, you are automatically using your CHEST, TRICEPS and a little bit of your SHOULDERS.
Anytime you PULL something, you are automatically using your BICEPS, BACK and a little bit of your SHOULDERS.
So IF you go to the gym 5 days a week, your week should look like this:
Day 1: CHEST, TRICEPS
Day 2: LEGS
Day 3: BACK, BICEPS
Day 4: CORE
Day 5: SHOULDERS
5 Minute Warm Up
30-45 Minutes of Strength Training (the days specified above)
15-20 Minutes of Cardio
5 Minute Cool Down
See?! Easy! Don’t get lost in the sauce! Keep it simple!
