My Personal Exercise Plan

Everyone knows that exercise is good for you. However, actually doing exercise is another story. Why is this so? There can be many reasons why some of us don’t exercise on a regular basis. One of those reasons could be a lack of time and planning. In this post, I will show you my exercise regimen and how it is possible for me to complete an effective workout in 30 – 60 minutes a day.

I divide my exercise program into 2 parts – resistance training and cardio training. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, I do resistance training. On Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, I do cardio. I rest on Sundays.

I do my resistance training at LA Fitness. I use the circuit training concept, alternating upper body exercises with lower body exercises. Each exercise consist of three sets. I try to choose exercises that work on several groups of muscles at the same time – for example, the rowing machine which works your shoulders and arms. Usually, I am able to finish this circuit/resistance training in 30 – 40 minutes, resting one minute between different exercises.

As mentioned earlier, I do cardio on alternate days, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. I like to do cardio early in the morning when it is coolest. Depending on how I feel, I will go walking outside, ride my stationary bike, or walk in the pool at LA fitness. I try to exercise for 45 to 60 minutes – and more occasionally. Instead of walking or riding the stationary bike at the same pace the whole time, I use interval training – alternating a slower pace with a faster pace. For example, I will walk or bike at a slower pace for 2 or 3 minutes and then walk at a faster pace for 30 to 45 seconds. My goal is to be able to walk 10,000 steps or 5 miles during my cardio workout. Interval training allows you to burn more calories in a shorter period of time.

This exercise program works for me. Each person must come up with his or her own individual exercise plan, based on their preferences and schedule. I am able to stay toned and keep my weight under control with this plan. As with any good exercise plan, remember to eat a healthy diet and get plenty of sleep.
