WorkoutIntroduction


Workout plans are the backbone of any fitness goal. They provide a blueprint for changing our body composition. Attaining the proper workout plan that fits with your body type could mean the difference between creating a habit or failure within one month (see New Year's Resolutions). Creating a habit can be formed in 66 days. Actually achieving a habit with regards to your fitness regeme requires the proper tools such as a self contract, goals sheet and of course, instruction.

The Tools for Success


To begin you will need to understand some basic concepts of strength training. Once you have mastered some basic information (such as sets, reps and intensity) we can move on to the tools such as a 1 rep max, body fat calculator and basal metabolic rate (BMR). These tools help us know what weight we should start with during our workout, how many calories to ingest during the day and what the normal range of body fat is for my demographic.

Workout Rules

Workout Plan Rule 1: Circuit training should include both weights and cardio

Circuit training is the best method of fat loss exercise you can do besides HIIT (high intensity interval training). Combining these methods in one workout will yield the best results. Just doing cardio in your circuit training wont help build muscle. Muscle is responsible for burning more calories at rest and helping you achieve the best body composition you can. A new term in bodybuilding is 'circuit sets'. These are sets don't include 'a rest interval' until the end of the circuit. For example, one circuit set could be bench press jumping to seated row to lunges and then rest for a specific time. That would be one circuit set.

Workout Plan Rule 2: "If you do not use it, you will lose it"

The principle of reversibility simply states that if you don’t use it, you will lose it. Unfortunately the gains you fought so hard to achieve will quickly be lost if you stop exercising. Your metabolism will return to pre-exercise levels, your gains in strength and endurance will diminish and even if you don’t deviate from your nutrition plan, you may find yourself regaining some of the lost weight. Our bodies are very plastic and love to adapt to new and exciting experiences. However, the adaptations must be maintained. As a rule of thumb, if you must cut back on the frequency of workouts, bump up the intensity. Exercise as hard as you can 1 to 2 days per week and if possible complete a short 8-minute circuit (one full set of all the exercises) on another day. Even one full round of the circuit can help you maintain your level of fitness and keep you motivated. You have worked so hard to gain it, try not to lose it.

Workout Plan Rule 3: Warming up: Going until you sweat

Warming up is integral to preventing injury. After jogging, biking or another type of aerobic exercise for five minutes you will start introducing synovial fluid which acts as a lubrication for your joints to protect cartilage. This fluid is the reason for a proper warm up. Static stretching before exercise can actually increase the chance of injury before a workout. Dynamic flexibility exercises should be completed such as hip and arm rotations. These dynamic stretches are the most important aspect of any workout.



Your warmup workout plan: Start with jumping on the bike for five minutes (go until you sweat) and then immediately proceed to the abdominal mats where you can perform fifteen arm rotations (without bringing your arms above your head), followed by trunk roations and finally one more minutes of quicker lunges.

Workout Plan Rule 4: Mix up your workout routine every two to three weeks

Switching up your workout routine is almost as important as an after workout meal (see workout principle number 5). Switching up your plan will help prevent any plateauing that could occur. This will help with motivation and also results. This doesn't mean you will have to change it drastically but instead of doing bicep curls you may want to do concentration curls instead. This simple change will force your muscle to adapt in a different way and get stronger.

Workout Plan Rule 5: Pre-workout, during and post-workout meals

This is the most crucial aspect of changing your body composition. What you do outside of the gym will determine your results. Depending on your goal you should be ingesting different meals. For muscle mass a pre-workout meal should consist of simple carbohydrates combined with some fast absorbing protein such as whey protein isolate. These simple carbohydrates will help release insulin which helps bring the whey protein to the damaged muscles. If you are training strictly for losing fat a pre,during and post workout meal could look like this: 20 grams of whey protein isolate in water. Just having protein present will help save your muscle and make your body attack fat storage tissue (adipose).
