Weekly Workout Routine

:: shop the post ::

Oh hey, Friday! I’ve gotten a lot of requests on what my workout routine looks like so here I am for this week’s fitness post. I am in no way (no way) a fitness guru/trainer, this is just what works for me and how I workout.

My workout routine is actually pretty much the same for every day, shocked? Probably not. I hate complicated routines and my schedule works really well for me!

I work out for roughly 60 minutes a day (except the weekends), but sometimes it’s a little less/more. I am currently on Week 4 with the Bikini Body Guide by Kayla Itsines. I’m already seeing results and her workouts are really easy and (almost) fun! It takes me about 30 minutes to finish one workout routine/day of hers. She only has you workout routines Monday, Wednesday, and Friday but I do Week 1/3’s full body workouts on Tuesday and Thursday.

It might sound a little confusing, but here’s what my workout looks like broken down by day!


Monday, Wednesday, and Friday:

  1. BBG Daily Workout – 30 minutes
  2. Ab Workout – 10 minutes
  3. Boxing (at-home 15-minute boxing workout) – 20 minutes

Total: 60 minutes

• I grab my phone and pull up iBooks and follow all the instructions for today’s workout. I normally have The Office or some other TV show playing while working out otherwise I get bored and exhausted more easily! I repeat my BBG workouts on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

• I’ve been using this ab routine every day for the past few weeks and it’s my all-time favorite. I talked about it in this post and how much I love the routine. It’s really easy and goes by fast, plus you definitely see results. I have a tiny outline of abs but I feel that my core is stronger. If you want more ab workout ideas, check out this post with a few of my favorite routines!

• I have a boxing bag in my basement that I use for 20-ish minutes. I’m probably only boxing for 10-15 minutes since I take 30-second breaks every few minutes but this is great for strengthening your core, arms, legs, and getting in a little bit of cardio.

• I go through like, 5 different workout clothes every week. My new favorite set from Fabletics is this one, super cute! And, everything is 70% off for this weekend only #score

• A reader commented this out in the comment section, but I would highly reccomend stretching after every workout! I do a quick stretch guide, probably about 5-10 minutes long, for my arms, legs, and core. You can check out this video for an easy guide 🙂

Tuesday and Thursday:

  1. BBG Full Body Workout – 30 minutes
  2. Jog – 25 minutes
  3. Ab workout – 10 minutes

Total: 65 minutes

• I like to get in some extra cardio/strengthening on my “off” days for BBG, so I use the full body workout from Friday. I’m used to these workouts so I find them easy but when you’re first starting out, you definitely feel sore from yesterday’s workout. If you’re just starting out with exercising, I’d take it easy and only workout a few days a week (until you get used to it) 🙂

• We have 18 acres, so I run/walk/jog until I get tired, haha! I can normally get to 25 minutes. I will also walk if I’m not feeling like running!

• I get in another ab workout, as well. Since this workout is so quick, I find it pretty easy to fit into my schedule. I do this ab workout every day!

Saturday and Sunday:

  1. Ab workout– 10 minutes

Total: 10 minutes

I don’t like working out on the weekends since it’s the weekend, so I only fit in my ab workout. Again, same workout from the other days!

    I’ve always been curious about boxing and the workout benefits. Recently I’ve heard so many more people rave about it – so perhaps I need to give it a try!

  • Nicole Feliciano

    I always love seeing what other fitness buffs are doing. Love the mix of things you work on.

  • Jessi

    I really need to get a good routine going. I will start and then stop and then not do it for a week. It is terrible.

  • Debra

    I really need to get back to exercising everyday or at lease a few time a week. I have gotten so busy it been hard to fine time.

  • Cynthia @craftoflaughter

    Sounds like you have a routine down pat. I combine my workouts with running. I have been really considering adding boxing too

  • Heather

    I need to get back on track! I have heard good things about BBG! Everyone that I have heard that tries it has seen results.

  • Amanda Love

    Having a routine makes it easier. I think yours are great! Thanks for sharing your routine, I got a few tips and exercises to add to mine.

  • Angela Tolsma

    I also hate working out on the weekends but I love doing a small something that keeps me going, usually just a walk with my husband. Your workout plan is pretty awesome, I love that you have a mix of things, I get bored so easily I need to switch it up lots!

  • Laurie Albanos

    Your dedication is inspiring. An hour a day? Wow! I’m going to set my goal for 30 minutes three times a week and work from there. I’ll keep your post as my inspiration.

  • Di Hickman

    Love boxing for cardio. Your workout routine sounds great however I notice no yoga or stretching? Maybe you just didn’t mention it? I always advise at least one day for mobility/flexibility/yoga

      I normally stretch right after a workout, but I don’t really consider it part of the workout! I’ll add that in the notes though, because I agree! I only do yoga occasionally, maybe a few times a month 🙂

  • Reesa Lewandowski

    it sounds like a great routine, thank you for sharing with us! I need a new workout!

  • Tereza

    Well done on creating such a regimented workout! You look wonderful so it definitely works:) I’m doing BBG too, how hard is it tho!! x

  • Cecilia Cannon

    good for you! this looks like a very manageable schedule that all of us could do. thanks for sharing your insider tips!

  • Blythe Alpern

    I just changed up my workout schedule after trying the Jillian Michaels 30-day Shred. It didn’t work at all for me so I decided to go back to my favorite mix of pilates and cardio. I’ve heard great things about Kayla’s products but have yet to try them. Sounds like they working out great for you.

  • Jeanine

    Sounds great. Right now I do a lot on my new tread mill but I NEED to get into doing a bit more and really working me out!

  • Haley Bradley

    I am so glad you have found a routine that works for you. I think that is the best part of any fitness routing!

  • Nikki Arnold

    This sounds great! I only seem to get about 30 minutes in a day haha, but I also use a work out video and a 10 minute ab workout. I like to have my workout memorized so I can do it while I’m watching a show, so I feel like I’m multi tasking.

  • Brittany

    I really need to step up my workout game, I’ve been seriously slacking the last couple weeks. I really need to take a page out of your book and make a weekly workout routine that I can stick to. Thanks for sharing.

  • Amy

    Loved reading this! I love how you broke each workout down. I have exercise induced asthma so exercising gives me anxiety, but I try to ride my bike every day!

  • Kiwi

    You look like you have a really organized workout regimen. I need to get my own so I can do better, of course I want to have a better body by summer!

  • Kecia | Momerish

    I have to keep changing up my routine or I will get bored. I like seeing how you do it!
