You made it through week 1! Now, it's time to kick it into gear and really push yourselves. This week is more about individualized muscles, so you may not feel quite as sore as you did this last week because the workouts are focused more on one muscle rather than working so many at a time. This is to give you somewhat of a break from those super-tired muscles, while also continuing to strengthen and push forward. Weeks 3 and 4 will be hard, so enjoy this week! You are doing great!
This is SO true! Is this not enough motivation for you to push through for these 4 weeks and then continue so others can notice?!
Here's the schedule - notice the HIIT workout increased 5 minutes :) The only things that changed are the strength workouts - so if you need a review of what steady state/HIIT are - go to the first post!
Strength workout #1:
Side to Side Lunges w/ Front Raises:
Strength Workout #2:
Pushups: You can either do regular pushups or on your knees

Hold each pose for 1 minute resting for 15 seconds in between each for 2 total rounds
Sunbird: Switch sides halfway through
Triangle: Switch sides halfway through
Side plank: Switch sides halfway through
