I think I’ve got this healthy food thing down to a science. I have lots of tasty, nutritious meals I can eat that keep me satisfied and give me ZERO digestive problems. Those symptoms were the main thing that were holding me back from getting serious about exercise, so now that they’re under control it’s time to work on my fitness. =)

As you may have seen, Ryan is doing his own fitness challenge. His is wayyyy too much for me. But I still want to get fit, so I’ve asked for his help in designing a plan for me. Here’s what he came up with:

Conditioning:
Bike ride 3 times a week 10 to 20 miles per ride
Bike interval training 6 intervals of 30 to 60 seconds with 1 to 2 minutes rest
Lower body:
Foward lunge 2 to 3 times a week 3 sets at 10 to 12 reps
Single leg squat 2 to 3 times a week 3 sets at 10 to 12 reps
Calf raises 2 to 3 times a week 3 sets at 10 to 12 reps
Side shuffle 2 to 3 times a week 3 sets of 20 to 30 seconds
Upper body:
Bench press 2 to 3 times a week 3 sets at 4 to 6 reps
Tricep extension 2 to 3 times a week 3 sets at 6 to 8 reps
Bicep curls 2 to 3 times a week 3 sets at 6 to 8 reps
Single arm db row 2 to 3 times a week 3 sets at 6 to 8 reps
Forearm curls 3 times a week 2 sets at 10 to 12 reps
Forearm extension 3 times a week 2 sets at 10 to 1
I’m probably going to fit everything into 5 days so I have the weekends off or for just “fun” exercise, like riding my e-bike or whatever other activities we do.
Our challenges begin October 1st, and we will be posting regular updates on our progress, along with what we eat to keep us going for all of this exercise. But as promised, I have also created a Facebook group that you can join here.
Eleven  more days until the fun begins!
