Step 1: Warm-Up

Please try not to overlook this important staple to any workout program.  If strapped for time, try to move until at a sweat, but just remember the body performs best and is less injury prone when warm.  To maximize this philosophy, use the RundleFit Dynamic Warm-Up below before all workouts.

Turn It Up Tuesday: Aerobic Day or Active Rest Day

Using smart training practices means respecting one’s rest periods.  That means, for one’s “Fast Twitch” muscle fibers (the target with our main workouts), joints and nervous system to recover optimally, a rest day or two is needed. However, rest days don’t have to be lazy days.  In fact, active rest targeting “Slow Twitch” muscle fibers (which aerobic activity does) is a great change-up for burning calories and promoting recovery.  This on top of mobility and flexibility practices makes an ideal, in-between workout day.

Step 1: Warm-Up

RundleFit Dynamic Warm-Up Download 

or use the Warm-Up Section’s video.

Step 2: Cardio Workout:

Choose from the following:

Running, biking, hiking, stairs, swimming, basketball, soccer, frisbee, another sport, rock climbing, jumping jacks, burpees, high knees, skiing, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, hopscotch, bear crawls, playing with the kids or whatever keeps you moving for…

Beginners: 18 minutes.

Step 3: Stretch and Cool Down (See Stretch Tab):

Pick at least 6 stretches and hold for 20-30 seconds each.  It’s okay to go through the stretch series a couple of times.  For an amazing post-workout stretch bonus, try foam rolling.  This is the perfect recovery enhancer and can be done anywhere (even if you do not own a foam roller (check out foam rolling on Dr. Oz earlier this year!)

If you typically get sore after workouts, stretching immediately after a workout will help alleviate some of this.  As well, stretching POST-workout will help prevent injury, speed up muscle recovery and enhance overall fitness level. Go to the stretching section to get started on this recovery practice.

Feel free to ask questions below, or in the community area.  We would love to hear your feedback, as well as see group interaction.

Nice work today!  Keep up the great work and stick to your meal plan!  You rock!

Wednesday: Mobility, Core & Stretch

Today is a light workout, focussing on your total core strength, range of motion and ending with foam rolling and stretching.  This will help speed up recovery and loosen up sore, tight muscles.

Step 1: Dynamic Warm-Up

Step 2: 4-Minute Total Core: (Click the 4-Core & Stretch Tab)

Step 3: Stretch and Cool Down:

Pick at least 6 stretches from the Stretch Tab and hold for 20-30 seconds each.

Step 3: For Complete Fitness, Make Nutrition a Priority

* Be sure to follow up every workout with a high (lean) protein snack and clean carb (fruit counts depending on which meal-plan you chose).  As well, drink plenty of water throughout the day and after workouts.

* Follow your nutrition plan exactly and use the recipe board for substitutions for best results.  Let us know how we can assist you through your fitness journey.  Just remember, nutrition is close to 80% of the physical results, so don’t rely solely on exercise.

Don’t forget to relax after food prep, rest and recover. This will give your body time to repair and de-stress.
