body weight workout
5 posts • Page 1 of 1
Hey, I really appreciate the site. I'm just starting to work out again (did the Level 4 - Day 1 today). I've worked with weights regularly in the past and do pushups and crunches occasionally but haven't stuck to a workout plan in a while. I'm not overweight and in decent shape, so I'm working on building muscle rather than weightloss. My idea is to follow your plan and run on the off days (4-8 miles) and then take one day of rest from both each week. I was also thinking I would incorporate a core workout on one of the days. I realize the plan described here does use the core, but I want to target it a little more. Would it be better to do this workout on my pushup/pullup/squat day or my running day? I was thinking it would make more sense to do it with the pushups/pullups/squats so that my core can rest more on my running days. Thanks!
I was thinking about it a bit more and I'm thinking of incorporating a core specific workout into the rotations you've laid out rather than do it separately. For starters, I think I'll just try adding crunches or maybe sit ups... With level 4 I'm thinking 6 or 8 in each round for day 1, 15 in each round for day 2, and 41 for day 3. I'll update the thread once I've tried it out or change my plan.
Hey just checking back in. I added sit-ups to the workout like I had planned, and it's been going well. I kind of stopped following the numbers I had originally layed out for reps, and just sort of add some more every few workouts until it feels like the right amount. Really enjoying getting into better shape! Thanks.
