Got a few requests from friends and my blog audience lately asking for My routine workout plan.
Recently, I’ve started attending H-Kore classes that evolve using pilate reformers. The class is only 45 minutes, but it core targeted and focusing on strengthening on the body, tightening muscles, burn fats, and improving endurance, plus jump-start on the metabolism. This is the perfect exercise for training up the perfect summer bikini body. Having a strong core is everything for me, giving that lately I’ve just picked up wake boarding and I’m regular for standup paddle boarding (SUP) and snowboarding.
My current workout routine…
Mondays: H-Kore Class – Although the class is only 45 minutes each, but every class worked intensively on core, legs, arms and back muscles. I have noticed that my core has strengthened and my balance has improved since taking the H-Kore classes. Most noticeably were my arms, they have definitely got stronger compare to 2 months ago. Although I’m not much of a weights or strength workout lovers, but I like the way my body is transforming to lately and I can definitely see it is toning up.
Wednesdays/Thursdays: I love my mid-week cardio exercises. It’s the best way to distress and wind down little of the stress I’ve piled up throughout the week. Ever since my training for the North Korea Marathon (Link of the article via HERE), I have fallen in love with running. I know a lot of people say it’s bad for your ankles and knees, but if you do it correctly, you can totally avoid those injured, and also running on the flat ground definitely helps with fat burning.
Every alternative week, I would try to schedule HIIT workouts into my week. Normally I do 15-20 minutes of interval sprints on the treadmill. (What is HIIT? It stands for High Intensity Interval Training, typically called ‘rest’ and ‘work’ periods. ) I often sprint at 14-17 kmph, which is often equivalent to 90-100% of our capacity, for 30 seconds and then rest my foot on the sides of the treadmill for 30 seconds while letting the treadmill to run, then jump back onto the treadmill for the next 30 seconds of sprint. The cycle repeats for 15 – 20 mins.
The benefits of HIIT: HIIT burns more calories during and after the workout than continuous aerobic training. If you want looking for something to tone up your body or reduce your body fats, I would suggest you schedule HIIT into your weekly workout plans.
Fridays: Fridays are my socials days! So no workouts on Fridays!
Saturdays/Sundays: Weekends are all about having fun and enjoy lives. If I feel motivated enough, I probably will slot in a cardio training on either Saturday or Sunday. Most of the time, I’m just out doing other sports with friends. I’ve been quite addicted to SUP and wake boarding lately. It’s a great way to get some tan during the nice summer weather and work on my core muscles and arms.
