First the book, then the workout.
- The revolution starts in the mind (pretty much, the learning before the workout information: How to get results, what to eat, committing, etc.)
- The time for action has arrived ( a 12 week workout plan)
I actually read the whole first part, which if you know me is unheard of (I never read, whoops) and learned A LOT! Great information for anyone starting to workout.
My focus is now on the second part. I love this section! Julia gives you 3 workout plans that you do for 4 weeks each (totaling to 12 weeks). Each week has one rest day and 6 workouts which include upper body, lower body, total body and then two ‘furnace workouts’ (short bursts of hard, fast cardiovascular trainings).
Each exercise then has it’s very own page. It goes through the steps to complete the exercise, tips, what equipment you should use and the target area for the exercise. I love that it tells me all of that. I think that is so helpful especially when you are new to working out.
Now, since you guys are awesome, I’m going to share with you part of the first workout in her book.
If you are also looking for some motivation or are a beginner to the whole workout thing I definitely suggest you get your hands on this book ($22.10/paperback).
Now its your turn: Do you usually use plans when you workout or make up your own workouts? Do you usually do groups of exercises like the ones above or work on one exercise before moving on to the next?
