I'm a sucker for a schedule, a routine, a plan. Maybe it's the former teacher in me, but I just like to know where I'm going and what I'm doing when I have a goal. I think that is why I like the carb cycling programs so much. The plan is designed for people like me who want to lose fat and gain strength. People who already work out, but need to shake things up a bit to move past a plateau.
I like following the plan. For me, there is a great mix between running, HIIT, strength, and recovery.
Here's what week 1 looked like:
Monday - Speed burst and HIIT
Tuesday - Speed burst and LISS
Wednesday - Strength training
Thursday - More strength training
Friday - Active recovery yoga
Saturday - Strength training - leg day!
Sunday - I tried a juice cleanse
Do you follow a training plan or prefer to be spontaneous with your workouts?
