Spring is here! Now that the spring season has officially begun, it is time for a new fitness routine.
Although our weather here in the San Francisco Bay Area is still wintry, I am going to try and push through my spring fitness routine, and get outside more!
One of my goals for 2018 was to get outside more, so I am trying to integrate more outside fitness into my spring routine. Since this is our rainy season, I need to ensure I have an indoor back-up plan in place in case of inclement weather on an outdoor fitness day.
Monday: Outdoor hike for 30 minutes plus 15 minute stretch routine
Tuesday: Spin class
Wednesday: Swimming workout-about 4000 yards.
Thursday: 30 minute interval workout at home, alternating cardio drills, core work and strength drills. (my schedule on Thursdays is crazy busy-so I need to squeeze something in at home)
Saturday: Family Hike outside for 60 minutes
Sunday: Rest day.
The problem with my fitness routine, is that I need to add weights! So, as of right now, my indoor alternate workout for rainy days involves a one hour treadmill LifeFitness Course, and about a half hour of weights. This will help me integrate weights into my routine; unless we don’t get our weekly rainy days-then I need to re-evaluate this routine! Haha
As you know, in a typical fitness routine, there should be a good combination of cardio, interval, anaerobic cardio, core work, strength work (using body weight), and weights. This fitness routine addresses all of those components except for the weights; which I am hoping will naturally fall into my routine on rainy days.
What is your typical fitness routine during the spring season? If you like to workout outside, how do you incorporate weights into your weekly routine?
Thanks for stopping by!
A great balance for a workout. I love a good spin class. That picture is gorgeous. xo ~ Megan
I love your spring workout routine. Mine includes body combat and body pump class! Happy health! Xo, Nelli
My fiancé works at a fitness center in my city, so I’m lucky to have access to some of the best equipment and really wonderful personal trainers there! I’ve been just trying to work on toning lately, and instead of a particular style of exercise each day, I try to work out a certain part of my body! It’s been great and I can already see a difference 🙂
Love this post girl! This is a great fitness schedule. I’ve been really trying to focus on fitness this year and have been loving Vital Fitness Studio for my workouts.
cute & little
This is such a great routine – I love the variety! Swimming is SUCH a great workout.
This is such a great workout routine. Unfortunately all I have time for now is one Pure Barre class a week.
This just reminded me how badly I need to start something like this. Thanks for the motivation!
I’ve always wanted to try spin class but it looks intimidating lol
I love this routine! Working out outside is my favorite!
We need to be better about taking advantage of our local recreation areas for hiking and just getting outdoors! Thanks for the inspiration!
Wow! That’s a very demanding schedule. Will you be able to keep all that up with your already busy schedule? Adequate rest is important too! I’ve had similar ambitions in the past and burnt myself out with trying to do too much. There’s nothing wrong at all in keeping fit but doing too much isn’t always good for your health. Sorry. Just saying……Take care of yourself whatever you plan to do.
I love that you shared your fitness schedule! I love being able to get outside and workout this time of year!
