My Weekly Workout Regimen
I established a points system for myself and mark on my calendar how many points I get each day.
I aim to reach 100 points each week (starts Mondays, ends Sundays).
1 set of reps of each workout is set to equal 1 point so here are some examples...
25 push ups = 1 point
15 squats w kettlebell = 1 point
25 kettlebell swings = 1 point
10 pull ups = 1 point
1 mile = 5 points
My usual heavy days are 16-20 points (4 sets of 4 workouts or 5 sets of 4 workouts). If I need to catch up to the 100 at the end of the week, I might do a 3 mile run and then do a 16 point workout.
Lately, I dialed this back because I listened to Ben Greenfield's advice of not overworking my muscles so each week I strive for 100 but usually end up with around 80 but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Recovery is just as important and Ben Greenfield gives some amazing tips on recovery (he is a triathelete/obstacle course runner/CEO/physical trainer with a focus on longevity through alternative means like cold thermogenesis and laser treatments.
