Discovered a basic 4 week fitness plan that looks good, and I am starting to like. It’s on the MyFitnessPal.com blog I frequent, but that blog is also full of lots of other stuff, making it kind of hard to keep track of the plan posts. In addition the YouTube videos embedded on each blogs posts sometimes do not work for me for some reason. So I created this page for myself to keep track of the plan links. I will continue to update as MyFitnessPal publishes them.
The 4-Week Fitness Plan to Increase Strength
3 days a week: Day 1 (lower body, especially hips), Day 2 (upper body, chest, arms, back), Day 3 (core). On off workout days, you can add optional 15-30 mins cardio (walk, bike ride, run/walk), 1-3 times per week.
Each workout has four exercises and is organized in an “A” set and a “B” set. Begin with the “A” set and alternate between “A1” and “A2” for the designated sets and reps. Once the “A” set is completed, move to the “B” set and complete in the same fashion.
- Day 1, Week 1
- Day 2, Week 1
- Day 3, Week 1
- Day 4, Week 2
- Day 5, Week 2
