You’ve read my post on How To Conquer BBG, my BBG Q & A, my review on 2.0 and even my review on 3.0. Today, you’re going to see exactly what a weeks worth of BBG looks like for me. This has been a very much requested post, so I figured it was time!
While BBG has its own recommended schedule, in order to not go insane or get burned out, it is important to make the workouts fit into your life, and your own schedule. It’s important to listen to your body and most importantly, to make each workout count.
Last week, I made sure to track each of my workouts, big or small, so that I could share it with you all! Hey, that rhymed 🙂
Here is what a typical week looks like.
Monday (LEGS): Monday morning I had planned on waking up and doing a long run (I had indulged a little bit too much the night before), but was completely exhausted so I opted for just taking Bentley on his 15 minute walk before getting ready for work. No matter what, I always try and do Leg Day on Monday’s. So for my lunch break, I headed to the gym to complete Week 37 Legs and followed the workout by walking on the treadmill at 4.0 mph for 20 minutes. I do this sometimes to get the lactic acid out of my legs! Days total workout time: 15+38+20= 1 hr & 13 minutes
Tuesday (LISS): Tuesday morning, I took my little sister to school, so my timing was super cut short and I wasn’t able to take Bentley for his normal walk. Then when I got to work, it ended up being a super busy day, which meant I wasn’t able to do my normal lunch workout. Needless to say, after sitting all day long, I was rushed home to get my body moving. I ended up running // walking on the treadmill for 1 hr. It consisted of a 10 minute up hill walk at 4.0 mph; a 30 minute run ranging from 5.4 – 7.0 mph; 10 minutes of uphill walking/running intervals; followed by a 10 minute cool down walking on a low incline at 3.8 mph. Days total workout time: 1 hour
Wednesday (ARMS): Wednesday morning, I was feeling really energized and well rested and ended up getting out of bed in time to take Bentley for his 15 minute walk. Because I had an event that evening, I knew that I had to workout during my lunch break. I ended up doing Week 37 Arms and finishing it with doing the stair stepper for 20 minutes. Days total workout time: 15+38+ 20 = 1 hr 13 minutes
Thursday (ABS): Thursday morning, I am not sure what happened, but I woke up NEEDING to run. So I got out of bed around 5:45 and went for a quick 2 mile run. Then during my lunch break, I really wasn’t feeling doing more cardio, so I did Week 37 Abs followed by 15 minutes on the stair stepper: Days Total Workout Time: 20 + 38 + 15 = 1 hr 13 minutes
Friday (Challenge): Friday morning, we were trying to leave early for Dallas, so I woke up, took Bentley for his 15 minute walk and went straight to my apartments gym. Once again, I wasn’t feeling doing cardio so I did the 1000 rep, Full Body Challenge. It kicked my tail! Because we were trying to get out of town, I wasn’t able to do any extra cardio. Days Total Workout Time: 15 + 45 = 1 hr
Saturday (LISS) Saturday morning in Dallas, I found a cycling studio so close to our hotel that I was able to walk to it. So I woke up and scheduled myself for their 10:30, 45 minute cycling class. Days Total Workout Time: 45 minutes
Sunday: Rest Day!
Moral of the story, no day is the same. Sometimes I am feeling it, sometimes I am not. Sometimes my schedule works out, sometimes it doesn’t. Listen to your body, and workout at a time that fits best for you that day. Just make sure you do it!
