Congratulations! You have completed 4 weeks of the 8-week Fit 5 workout. Only 4 more weeks to go! As you reach the halfway point of the program, you should have a sense of satisfaction. Sticking to a new exercise routine isn’t always easy. I’m doing the program with you and I know I feel really good about sticking to it!
If you find you need a little more motivation, try keeping track of your workout success. Keeping an exercise journal is a great way to track your progress. Keeping a journal can also serve as an extremely effective motivational tool.
As always, each workout is designed to last 30 minutes and is developed so each individual can exercise at his or her own pace. Each exercise should be performed to failure—when you feel as though you can’t complete even one more rep—or to the max number of reps listed. For example if the exercise is squat jumps and lists a max of 50 reps, you should do as many reps as possible up to 50. If you complete 10 reps and find that you can’t do another rep while maintaining good form, then simply move on to the next exercise. If you can complete all 50 with good form, do so and then move to the next exercise.
If you get through all 5 exercises in less than 30 minutes (which should be the case), repeat the cycle until the 30 minutes is up. Please note: Before adopting any new exercise routine, you should consult your physician.
