#66days – Remotivation

Welcome to ‘Week 4 – Remotivation’ of #66days.

You’ve passed phase 1; Excitement & Determination, Regret and Anger & Jealousy.

You are keeping up your healthy nutrition, you have introduced yourself to the gym environment and you’re starting to surround yourself with the right kind of motivation.

I’m proud of you. And you should be too.

During this week, you’ll find your energy levels are starting to rise, your stomach bloat is deflating and you’re feeling determined.

This week is all about remotivation so we’re going to take advantage of it.

I’m going to give you another workout:

Introduction to Squats

This post will take you through the correct way to perform a squat (check out the introduction video) and also provide you with a beginners workout plan.

So this week, you can either head to the gym once and do your usual cardio workout along with your new squat workout…

Or you can head to the gym twice; once for the cardio, the other for the squats, it’s up to you, I know how difficult it is to squeeze a fitness routine into an already busy schedule, whether that’s work, kids, travelling etc, so get the whole workout done in one day, or split it in half, it’s your choice.

If you’re choosing to do it in one day, the whole workout will take 40 minutes and will consist of:

10 mins warm up

10 mins squat workout

15 mins cardio (treadmill or rowing machine – try to mix it up each week)

5 mins cool down

Otherwise, it’s the usual cardio one day (30 mins) and a squat workout the other day (25 mins).

You may feel I’m not giving you much of a workout yet, but gradual planning is one of the keys to success. If you pile on too much at the start, you’ve going to burn the candle at both ends and it becomes harder to stick to.

And as I mentioned in the first week, nutrition, nutrition, nutrition. Working out is a vital part of your fitness journey, but nutrition is the top priority.

So, keep to it. You want this, remember. No one is telling you to do this. You want change. Enough is enough. Use that remotivation you’re feeling and work hard for yourself.

You can do this – you have it in you.

I hope this post helps you during your fourth week of your #66days. Any questions you have, get in touch.
