Jumpstart January Challenge Blueprint

Thursday, January 02, 2014

I am planning to participate in the Jumpstart January Challenge. I am posting my intentions here along with the links to the videos that I keep losing, so I don't have to keep rethinking what I am planning to do.

Day 1 - Wednesday
Cardio: 8-min Cardio Intervals

Strength: Makeup for Day 7 abs video if didn't have time after Karate on Tuesday

Day 2 - Thursday -
Cardio: Walk 30 mins or Rest
Strength: 9-min Lower Body Sculpt

Day 3 - Friday
Cardio: Karate (45 mins)
Strength: 7-min Arm Shaper with Dumbells

Day 4 - Saturday
Cardio: Walk (30 min)
Strength: 12-minute seated core workout

Day 5 - Sunday
Cardio: Walk (30 min)
Strength: 10-min Pilates Thigh Workout

Day 6 - Monday
Cardio: Walk or Rest
Strength: 9-minute Arm Workout with Dumbells

Day 7 - Tuesday
Cardio: Karate (45 mins)
Strength: 15-min Abs video

According to the original schedule, Days 1 & 7 without the 30-min cardio are on the weekend, but I have more time then, so definitely want Saturday/Sunday to be cardio days. Karate is Tuesday/Friday. I tend to work late Monday/Thursday. So, I may shift a day so that Day 1 is on Thursday, not Wednesday even though that means I'm doing a lower body workout on the same day as karate (which tends to be leg intense)

    I need to think about what to do for the Week 2 bonus video and when to include it. I'm torn between adding one of the 10-minute Cardio kickboxing videos or the Pilates beginners workout.

    I'm leaning towards the kickboxing, which would make a natural warmup on Mondays, yet still keep that day relatively short. The big question is when to do the 2nd time. Probably Saturday.

    Today is day 7 for me (I started a wee bit early). However, I'm taking it off and doing Day 6 & 7 tomorrow. Being sick is for the birds.
