After realizing that the time was up, I went to him to figure out what the next step was pertaining to the exercise portion of my mission. He first asked me a few simple questions:
1. Has it been 6 full weeks yet? My answer of course was, yes.
2. Do your different body parts feel soar any more after you workout? I had told him that I am at the point where I will struggle to put the last few reps up but I am not soar anymore the day after.
3. Do you want to start a new routine? I told him that I was ready to shock my body once again to maximize my weight loss opportunities.
He saw how excited I was to switch up my routines to something new and he was ready to sit down and run over everything with me right away. Being that it was the end of the day, I had asked him to run through a general idea of what was going to happen, give me details for tonight, and explain in detail the rest of the workout routines tomorrow. He proceeded to tell me that I will be working out a different body part five days a week. Each week will be the same body part on the same day but with a different set of exercises.
Monday - Chest - I will be executing 5 different exercises at a set amount of weight for 5 sets x 15 reps.
Tuesday - Back - I will be executing 5 different exercises at a set amount of weight for 5 sets x 15 reps.
Wednesday - Legs - I will be executing 5 different exercises at a set amount of weight for 5 sets x 15 reps.
Thursday - Shoulders - I will be executing 5 different exercises at a set amount of weight for 5 sets x 15 reps.
Friday - Arms - I will be executing 5 different exercises at a set amount of weight for 5 sets x 15 reps.
Cardio & Abs - I will be executing my cardio routines and abs / core body routines on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday
He also explained to me that I will be feeling very sore the day after every workout. I welcome the challenge and I can't wait to see what results will come out of these new exercise routines. Well here is to another 6 weeks of hard work and determination.
