I thought someone minght need this so bad at this very moment, or the moment you’re browsing your dash and you stumble on this, feeling awful and at the bottom… Yes, you… Click the link, please if you’re in dire need of support and comfort, feel upset or sad. Please do, you’re not alone.
I got this original plan from this pinterest post, but disliked the sexy lady on the side judging me with her abs. So instead I replaced it with a calender so you can mark off each day!
My doctors hope that building more muscle tone will help me manage my heart condition, so I’m determined to do this. But considering I haven’t exercised in like, years, I feel like death after the first day.
You never realize how many 90 jumping jacks are til you hit like 45 and start to feel your stomach in your throat…
Anyways, it’s easily printable and I wish all those that wish to try to get healthier like me all the luck in the world.
Okay, here’s the thing - DO NOT push yourself to get to some arbitrary number that is listed in a workout plan. That way lies major health issues and injuries.
A good guide is to do as many as you feel like you can do comfortably (i.e you are tired but not ‘omg I am going to die’ exhausted) and then maybe do 1-5 more, depending on how difficult you find the action. (The more difficult, the fewer you want to try to do - again, trying to do things while your muscles are all exhausted is how you sprain and strain things because your form goes all to crap. So you want to push yourself WITHOUT your form falling apart.)
Then take the number that you managed and use THAT to set your next goal. You can have the number stated on the plan as your ultimate goal, but you might need some time to get there.
Also, this plan fails in the sense that your body actually needs recovery time in order to build the muscles and repair the damage you’re doing with exercising. Either take every other day off (to let your body rest and recover) or don’t do whole body every day - do legs/lower body one day, and upper body/arms the next. So while you’re working your lower body your upper body gets to rest, and vice versa.
Even the best athletes in the world have rest time built in to their plans, it’s just that necessary.
You’re very correct. I may have to take a second look at this plan and make sure it doesn’t do more harm than good.
You might want to divide daily workout plan into 2 or 3 sessions? I mean, 90 jumping jacks are already too much for the first day and on monday there is 150 of them! But making it all in 2 sessions at least might be easier to do at first. I’m no expert in these but it sounds more reasonable.
