Get Fit in 2 Weeks: Week 2




How Fit Can You Get In 2 Weeks?! – Week 2

Get ready to see how fit you can become in record time! It can be done with strong efforts, consistency, and a program to progress with for a set time frame.

 

Let’s kick it up a notch by adding extra variations to last week’s fitness challenge.

 

Since this is only a 2-week challenge, I dare you to rev up the routine by intensifying the exercises with variations that offers your body a similar movement with an increased challenge. Keeping the routine fresh doesn’t have to be a completely different program or all new exercises. You can perform the same exercises that you are familiar with but change them slightly by giving them a little ‘face lift’ in a new variation for the muscles to be constantly challenged.

 

TIPS FOR CONTINUED IMPROVEMENTS:


After completing any great fitness program, challenge, or event, internal motivation seems to be at a high level. This is a great feeling to keep the momentum going and continue to progress to obtain greatness. Here are some tips that can help sustain your body’s improvements.

  • 1. Consistency to your challenge
  • 2. Change up the routine weekly
  • 3. Add movement variations
  • 4. Continue learning new workout styles, exercises, & meals to prepare
  • 5. Continue the challenge alone, with a friend, take on a new one, or create your own
  • 6. Reassess your goals frequently & make adjustments to them
  • 7. Reassess your ‘baseline’; recorded data taken prior to starting the program

EXTRA CHALLENGES


There are tons of fitness challenges out there for you to partake in. Perhaps you need a program that holds you 100% accountable for your time invested or something that rewards you for your efforts. Here are a few sites and apps to check out that offer some great workout challenges that you can incorporate into your future fitness programs.

 
  • Healthywage.com – designs & organizes only weight loss challenges and contests that participants can win money for losing weight!
  • Dietbetter.com – create a bet on yourself to achieve your fitness goals.
  • Gympact.com – an app that provides motivation to achieve exercise goals by giving cash to members who are meeting their goals, paid for by members who don’t follow through!
  • Sparkpeople.com – offers different team, individual, or group challenges with positivity & coaching.
  • Skinnyo.com – Find nearby challenges, in-home, gym, or specific workout goals to achieve.
  • Here’s week 2’s Fitness Challenge & a bonus Diet Challenge to incorporate.

    Diet and exercise go hand-in-hand. So if you want the best results, try to eliminate unnecessary ‘things’ from your diet and focus on consuming lean proteins, veggies, and tons of water.

     
    DIRECTIONS:

    Perform the workout provided in circuit format with no rest between exercises.
    REPS: Perform the appropriate number of reps/ day as listed in the chart.
    SETS: Perform at least 1 complete circuit. If your schedule permits, perform 2 or more sets!

    The whole circuit should take roughly 14 minutes to complete 1 set. Maximize your efforts for the time you put in!

    NOTE: The 2nd week of the challenge builds upon week 1’s workout by adding variations for an increased challenge.

    Engaging in an goal takes hard work, dedication, and commitment to see it through until you’ve reached your goals. So hang in there! If it were that easy, goals would not be something we strive to achieve. Believe in yourself and all that you can accomplish!

     

    Continue on your fitness journey. You hold the key to your path!

     

    Best Always, Maria

    Very intense program, Maria! This assumes that the person doesn’t need to rest and has to workout for 14 consecutive days. It can be possible, but they should have a healthy lifestyle (good food, good sleep, etc.)

    Thanks for sharing!
