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.

Welcome To Week 8. Are You Ready For Your Test Bueller?

Week 8 is the perfect time for a couple re-tests.  You have performed admirably throughout the trainer, and now is the time to see the hard work pay off.

To test overall improvement.  Repeat week one’s Baseline test, and Week 4’s workout.  Hopefully you posted your scores in the comments or group page as a benchmark. If not, no biggy, but you should start for more validation of your hard work.

Step 1: Warm-Up

Step 2: Re-test Baseline Workout:

Baseline Test:

1. Push-Ups or Knee Push-Ups (How many can you get in 1 minute?)
2. Squat or Chair Squats (How many can you get in 1 minute?)
3. Plank or Knee Plank (How long can you hold the plank?)

Please post your score at the bottom for benchmarking purposes.

Step 3: Workout:

8 Minute Meltdown #2

1. Bear Crawl (Forward 10x and Backward 10x)
2. Seal Jacks or Stationary Jacks (10x)
3. Hip Pulse (10x)
4. 3 Push-Ups, 3 Squat Hops or Squats (Repeat circuit 2x)
5. Ab Crunch (10x)

Step 4: 4-Minute Total Core (See 4-Core Tab)

Step 5: Stretch

Welcome To Your First 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

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…

Intermediate: 33 minutes / Advanced: 36 Minutes

Step 3: Pick a Four Minute Total Core Session

Step 4: 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!

Food Prep and Recovery Day!

The first food prep date may seem overwhelming, but after a couple times through, you’ll get the hang of it.  And in no time, this will be a life changing habit.  Follow your food prep guide download and ask questions when needed.

Just remember, food prep is one of those things you just have to do.  It’s literally a master key for weight loss and best health practices.  So in the spirit of fitness, “Just Do It!” 😉  

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

Post what you are cooking this week down below.  We would love to hear from you.
