When I opened my agenda yesterday, I noticed a quote that seemed to stick with me…
At the beginning of each month, my agenda offers a new quote and the quote for January is “start something new.”
All day yesterday I couldn’t get this quote out of my head. Like I said, it stuck with me and I couldn’t help but think that I really should apply it to my life – I should try something new.
So, after a lot of soul searching, I’ve decided that I’m going to try a new training routine.
As you know, I am a big lover of GPP; however, a couple of months ago I started to feel like I needed a change. So, I stopped doing my 5 – 6 GPP sessions per week and began to follow a 5 day bodybuilding split.
I have been doing 5 workouts per week which include chest and triceps, back and biceps, shoulders, and two leg days for over 6 weeks now, so I knew now would be a perfect opportunity to start something new in this aspect of my life.
I like to follow a training routine for anywhere between 4 – 8 weeks and since I’ve been doing the same 5 workouts for almost 8 weeks now, I know it is time to change things up and try something new.
I took yesterday off from the gym as I had a busy day of school and studying, so today is my first day of this week getting back to the gym and I will be starting my new program.
I have decided to start my very first upper/lower split! I will now be going to the gym 4 days a week and training my upper body twice and my lower body twice.
I always get nervous trying something new at the gym, such as this new training split, but hopefully my body will benefit from it! I know my legs have gained more mass since training them twice a week, so hopefully my upper body will do the same.
Once I get all 4 of my workouts planned out, I can share them with you so if you’re in need of a new workout schedule, you can follow along with me!
How many days of the week do you train? Have you ever done an upper/lower split before?
What is something that you can do new this month?
