Today's question of the week comes from blog follower Tami. She asks:
I have been following your blog and attempting eating clean for a long time. Doing really well at it now, although it's taken me a long time to get here for some reason! What I'm wondering about is your workout routine? I read in an article where you said you train your glutes 3 times a week? I'd love to hear what your training program looks like right now. :) Thanks so much!
You must be referring to the latest Oxygen Glutes Special which hit stands this week. I do train my glutes 3 times each week. Lately, when doing glutes I have been thinking more about what muscles I will need for the uphill portions of my runs. It really helps me get my mind into the muscle. As for the rest of my body, currently I train 2 body parts every time I go in the gym.
Day 1: Biceps & Triceps
Day 2: Shoulders & Calves
Day 3: Back & Chest
Day 4: Legs
Day 5: Abs & Glutes
**I add more glutes on 2 of the other days just for an added hit.
I complete 2 different exercises for each body part, and 6 sets of each exercise. I have been increasing my reps lately
As for my cardio, my 1/2 marathon training is underway. I'm using a 3-day 1/2 marathon training program, which includes 2 shorter runs & 1 longer one (p.s. look for a 1/2 marathon plan in an upcoming newsletter). This weekend my long run will be the Scotchdale 20km with my friend Giselle. I also throw in the occasional lengths swim in the pool especially since it's been so hot!
