Thanks again for purchasing the Your Fitness Journey DVD.
As I mentioned previously, this DVD is different from other fitness DVDs. Most fitness DVDs will give you a 30 minute “butt blaster”, “tummy trimmer”, “killer core”, or some other workout routine.
After you watch it a few times, it becomes just that…routine. It’s the same old boring program over and over again. What’s more, they promise to give you killer abs, rock hard glutes, or some other outlandish promise. What they fail to tell you is the real truth and they fail to give you the straight scoop on what you need for success in your weight loss or muscle building journey.
Here’s what you will get:
- Over 80 exercises in 8 different categories that will allow you to build your own programs.
- Personal instruction on each exercise that you can refer back to forever.
- More fun from your workout programming because you have more to choose from.
- More variety to keep your body guessing as to what’s coming next.
Next, let me tell you what you’re not going to get with this DVD:
- A pre-defined workout program that you can follow mindlessly and become tired of in a few short days.
- A promise that you can just do 4 minutes of exercise and have instant six-pack abs or some other unreasonable expectation.
- A promise that you can burn fat in a specific area of your body by doing a specific exercise. That’s because you can’t. It’s not possible regardless of what that TV infomercial tells you. Your body decides where it takes the fat from, not you or the exercise you choose to do.
Here’s how you’ll use this DVD:
1. Before you even watch the DVD, pick a goal. Make sure your goal follows this acronym: SMART
- S – Specific
- M – Measurable
- A – Attainable
- R – Relevant
- T – Timebound
2. Pop in the DVD, watch the intro video, and then go to the Main Menu.
3. On the Main Menu, you’ll see 8 different categories of exercises.
4. When structuring your program, you can choose a couple of different methods:
- If you’re planning a full body workout, which I recommend, choose two or three exercises from each category. My recommendation is to alternate types of exercises, rather than doing all of the exercises of that type before moving to the next. For example, if you choose two pushing and two pulling exercises, do a pushing exercise, followed by a pulling exercise, then do the second pushing exercises followed by the second pulling exercise. Practice this type of program 3-4 days per week.
- You can also alternate days between lower body and upper body, working the lower on one day and the upper on another. This method will be more intensely focused on the area being worked but will require more days in the gym to be effective. If you prefer this route, choose 6-8 upper body exercises and 6-8 lower body exercises. Once again, alternate between types (i.e. pushing and pulling or squating and lifting) when building your program. Perform this type of program 4-5 days per week.
5. Make subtle changes to your program over time by swapping a few exercises of the same type at a time rather than making drastic changes every workout. It’s OK to perform the same program a few times to perfect the movements, but you’ve got to make some changes to keep it interesting and effective.
This should give you a good start to developing your progamming using the Your Fitness Journey DVD.
