I Did Two-A-Days (Workouts) For A Week And I Would Do It Again

on

Always find a new way to challenge yourself! Last week I did 10 workouts in 5 days and it was great.

Two-a-days refers to athletic training sessions that are done twice a day, typically for a certain time period. If you think for even a second that this is something you’d want to try, DO IT=)

Before this last week, my “two-a-days” knowledge was limited to a day here or there but never for a set amount of time.  I went into this sans experience or a plan but I did it and it felt great!

Two-A-Day Tips:

  • Do focused workouts, that way you won’t run out of muscle groups or get bored. (My workouts are below.)
  • If you’re hungry, eat. For this experimental week I followed a strict workout routine and not a strict diet.
  • Make a time frame for your workouts, I choose 45 minutes. (If doing HIIT or circuits, this may change.)
  • Prepare to have the best sleeps. Last weeks sleeps were too good!

Two-A-Days for 5 straight days is no small feat so be proud of yourself and give this week and challenge a strong effort!

The workouts:

Monday- Run/Walk and Bike Ride

Tuesday- Abs and Biceps and Abs and Triceps

Wednesday- Walk and Bike Ride

Thursday- Abs and Back and Butt/Leg Circuit

Friday- Shoulder Circuit and Leg Circuit

This whole challenge was made up as I went along. I didn’t really know what to expect but I was excited to see what happened.

Wednesday proved the hardest day for me. I woke up tired but determined and walked for the set 45 minutes even though I wanted a rest. And let’s face it, that was my 5th workout of the week already. No wonder I was tired!

I enjoyed the week and learned some things along the way. This was a great challenge!

I would love to do this again, make more of a plan, and maybe even track and write about it with more how-tos! Tell me what you want out of it and Happy Monday!
