What types of workouts does the Strong Girl Fitness Plan include? What can I expect?
The Strong Girl Fitness Plan contains an 8-Week Workout Guide that contains 4 Phases of progressive training–meaning you will do the same workouts for a given day for two weeks before moving onto the next phase. Each phase challenges your body in a different way, so that you can build muscle and torch fat.
The calendar inside the Strong Girl Fitness Plan will tell you what workout you will do every day. There are 4 days of workouts per week with the option of adding in bonus workouts (cardio, abs, booty) if you choose. The daily workouts are split by body type and are made of strength and resistance training exercises. Each workout should take about an hour or less to complete in the gym. If you choose to extra reps or add optional exercises you may be at the gym a tad longer.
You can complete these workouts anytime throughout the day. The sample meal guide in the Strong Girl Nutrition Plan will give you examples of how to structure your diet and macronutrient intake around the time of day you workout, so that you can get the best results.
Strength & resistance training….does it bulk you up? Wait, is there a difference?
The Strong Movement™ Strong Girl Guides Fitness Plan explains this answer in detail. However, you will not turn into the hulk unless you are injecting testosterone into your body and taking steroids! So quit believing that myth, will ya?
Can I workout at home?
The Strong Movement™ 8-Week Workout Guide of the Fitness Plan was designed to be completed in a gym or fitness facility. I believe in surrounding yourself with like-minded, active people (& other Strong Girls!) to help reach your fitness goals. Getting to the gym is the hardest part, but once you’re there, you’ll be in the right mindset to kill your workout! Remember, you are there for you–not any one else and not to have a selfie sesh (although, please check in with Strong Movement hashtags when you do!).
There are variations of the workouts you may perform at home. However, if there are enough requests, an At-Home Version may be created. You can also check-out our FREE 1-WEEK At-Home Workout Here!
Are The Strong Movement™: Strong Girl Guides suitable for everyone?
The Strong Movement™: Strong Girl Guides were developed for girls of all ages whether you struggle with your weight and body image or have been working out your entire life. Strong Girls are new moms, athletes, women just getting into fitness, women making a new lifestyle change, high school girls, college students, college grads, professional women, fitness fanatics, women who want to maintain or just want more energy and confidence! There is a STRONG GIRL inside everyone! Just make sure you are in good health, no current injuries and have complete clearance from your doctor!
What if I’m a beginner and have never worked out?
This is exactly why I created and wrote all of the Guides in the series! I wanted to help women learn how to properly workout at the gym to get the results they want. There is a description of every exercise in the book. There will also be YouTube videos created and sent to you in 2016 as a supplement to these descriptions. The workouts in the Strong Girl Fitness Plan are adjustable to your level. I encourage everyone to challenge themselves to see the best results. You can raise or lower the amount of weight to adjust it to your level. You can also add or decrease the amount of sets you perform.
What if I’m experienced in the gym or already a workout junkie?
Great! I’m excited for you to challenge yourself with the Strong workouts and take your body to the next level.
