April Week 1 workout plan

Hi friends! I’ve loved reading about your April plans. I’m also loving all of the blog April Fool’s jokes… Young House Love FTW – I’m still snickering about it.

What’s on the agenda for fitness this month? I have something fun coming up that I’ll announce later this week, but in the meantime, here’s a weekly workout schedule to follow along if you’d like. (Of course, check with a doc before making any fitness changes.)

All of the workouts and info are below to make it easy to find in one spot. Sunday was counted as an off day, but if you got in a workout, consider it extra credit or add in another off day throughout the week. As always, shuffle and modify as you see *fit* πŸ™‚

Sunday: OFF

Monday: APRIL FOOLS WILD CARD! Anything you like.

Here’s a challenge for you: take a couple of minutes today to write down your fitness plan for the rest of the week. You can post it in the comments if you’d like, or just keep it in a visible place at home as a reminder!

Hope your April is off to a great start. I’ll have lots of Easter pics to share tomorrow, too πŸ™‚

    Great workout for the week. I am on my last week (week 12) of James Wilson’s plan. After that I plan to follow along with your workouts.
    I miss the meal plan for the week post. Can you fill us in tomorrow on that? Xo

    I love love love when you post workout plans like this. I love working out but lack serious creativity to make up a weekly plan for myself with enough balance. Thank you!

  15. Hey,

    I love your blog! I was wondering, do you have your hump day booty burning video written down? I just want to make sure I am doing the right amount of lunges and squats or did you do it by seconds?

    Thank you!

    Hi! This is my first time checking out the blog (I asked google a question about a Polar Heart Rate Monitor and your page was one of the links!) Anyways, I love the recipes and your workouts and advice!! I’m a native Arizonan (Tucson) and Its awesome to come across blogs where were from the same place!

  18. Thanks for posting the workouts in this format-very helpful!

  19. Awesome! Love your workouts and plans as usual! I’m able to jump right in today and follow the rest of the week because Sunday was my rest day and I did Chest/back/legs Monday.

    Thanks, Gina!!

  20. Thanks for the Booty Burner! I did that plus the Upper Body HIIT Blitz from last month. Great workout all while my baby is napping! πŸ™‚

  21. Melissa says:

    I did the arm and ab burners after my cardio last night…wow! My arms were seriously shaking (that bicep combo is deceptively difficult)—I’m waiting for the DOMS to settle in!

  22. I did the HIIT and Steady workout this morning. I was literally dead by the end of it. Love it when that happens πŸ™‚ Thanks!

  23. Have to say this is my favorite way you have organized the weekly workouts! So easy to go back to this and reference the ideas for the week! Thanks:)
