Spring Fitness Plan
Now that my ski season has finally ended with my trip to Quebec last week, I’m shifting into my spring fitness plan. A fitness schedule can change with the seasons and if you recall my winter schedule, it was very ski intensive with a minimum of four days on the ski slopes.
At some points, I was on the snow for eleven days straight. But now that there is no more skiing for the season, I will require a different schedule for fitness for the next few months until the summer program when my outdoor swimming pool will be opened.
So here is what my spring fitness plan will look like;
Monday – martial arts forms
Tuesday – martial arts weapons
Wednesday – weights & super stretch
Thursday – martial arts forms
Friday – martial arts weapons
Saturday – open activity (eg., rollerblading)
Sunday – weights & super stretch
As you can see, four days of the week will be martial arts with either my empty hand forms or weapons training. I need to be outside for the weapons training because of the space requirements so if the weather is too wet one day, I’ll simply switch days to do my forms which I can do indoors.
The martial arts represents my cardio as well as flexibility elements of my workouts. Of course, my two workouts with weights will form my strength training component. So overall, there is still a nice fitness balance over the course of the week.
My Saturdays and Sundays might be switched around sometimes too if I end up with an opportunity to do some type of social fitness activitiy with others which could include rollerblading, cycling or hiking which are of course all weather dependent.
The above fitness activities are in addition to my daily, weather dependent, walks with my two Lhasa Apso dogs Chester and Roxie. These walks normally take about 30 minutes. So in total, we are looking at 30 minutes to an hour of physical activity at the minimum per day.
This spring fitness plan is basically like what I would do for my autumn schedule after the outdoor pool closes for the season. I’ve already entered the respective fitness activities into my iCal calendar to remind me each day since I will likely need a reminder as I transition into my new schedule.
New Year Resolutions
What about you? What are your plans for fitness this spring? I hope you haven’t given up on them in case they were part of your New Year resolutions. If so, make an effort to revisit them as we head into a new spring season.
Since we all want to look good in our summer clothing (and swimsuits) plus get healthy, start your fitness plan now if you are not already on one.
Again, feel free to comment below what you will be doing for your spring fitness.
On another note, I’ll be coming out with a new Motivational WebTV episode soon with video footage from my trip to Quebec City last week. If you missed the last episode, catch it at Persistence video.
