week six – beginner 

HOW IT WORKS

Every week, you’ll receive 2 strength training workouts, 2 cardio workouts and 1 challenge workout.

These should be completed on opposing days (in other words, one assigned workout per day), but if you are crunched for time, you can double up a strength training workout with the low-intensity cardio workout – just make sure you complete the cardio workout second.

We do not recommend completing the high-intensity cardio workout on the same day as another workout.

DAILY WARM-UP

METABOLIC WARM-UP

Complete before every workout.

STRENGTH TRAINING

DAY 1

HOW IT WORKS

Complete two rounds of each superset (C1, C2). Have your weights ready and perform exercises 1 and 2 back-to-back.

Rest for 30-60 seconds between sets and repeat for each following round. Your weight should feel challenging but doable with good form. If you can’t complete at the minimum number of reps assigned, your  weight is too heavy.

If you can complete 3-5 reps more than the maximum number of reps prescribed, it’s too light. Record the weight you used, and sets and reps in your
workout journal and try to do a little better next time by lifting heavier weight, performing more reps, or taking shorter rest breaks.

CHALLENGE WORKOUT

SWING + CORE WORKOUT

HOW IT WORKS

Record the number of reps you completed in your workout journal or VLT and aim to complete more reps in the same amount of time next time.

KETTLEBELL:
Set your workout timer for 5 minutes. Choose a kettlebell weight that is challenging but doable for 10 reps. Complete as many kettlebell swings as possible in 5 minutes, resting as often as necessary and keeping good form.
PLANK & SIDE PLANK:
Set a workout timer and hold as long as pretty. Record your time.
