We all have trouble “making time” for our workouts. Here is my tricks for getting training done every week with a busy schedule. Need an extra push for those glutes? Here is a glute workout that will help build your butt. Being pampered is a always a plus. You need to remember to take care of yourself and your skin. Follow me through a facial treatment at Atomic Beauty Company.

Structuring Your Training Week:

Make a list of muscles and how often you like to train them.
I like to look at workouts at four different levels of intensity:Level 1- Recovery DayActive, but low intensity day.  Taking a hike or a light walk are two examples for a recovery day.
Level 2- Isolation of one muscle groupNo compound or heavy lifting
Level 3- Moderate to Heavy weightHIT under 15 minutes
Steady State Cardio
More than one muscle group
Rest between sets
Level 4- High IntensityHIT, Heavy compound lifts, Plyos
Short rest periods between sets
Ask yourself these questions each day to help determine your level of workout for the dayHow do you feel?
What fuel have you put into your body today?  Is it a lot (like you would for a heavy day)? Is it a little, for a lower level, more isolated day?
What muscles have you already targeted in the last 48 hours?  You do not want to over train!
What do you have left for the week?  Is your schedule more flexible so you can move your days around, or do you need to stay to a tight schedule for the week?
