I’ve been sharing the LA Fitness # MoveMoreBurnMore 90 Day Plan blog posts for workouts and nutrition. In case you missed any, start here for the Part One Workout post and here for the Part One Nutrition post.
Today I am linking up to the next two parts of the 90 Day Workout plan because I think that even if you aren’t ready to commit to a structured plan, it’s good to know what to expect and how to progress. If you HAVE committed, I hope this helps you on your journey to living a healthy, fit life.
Part Two of the 90 Day Workout Plan moves on from the set of workouts assigned in Part One to more complex, difficult routines and moves intended to build on the muscles you developed in the first two weeks of the program. Why? Because it’s important to change up routines and continue to challenge your body and mind in new ways, maximizing your ability to change, adapt, and grow.
After two weeks of part one (of this or any exercise routine,) your body will start to grow used to the motions and movements, you’ll notice they are getting a lot easier, your stamina is better, and you should be ready to move on to something new. CLICK HERE TO READ PART TWO.
Part Three of the 90 Day Workout Plan takes you through days 30-45, or to the halfway halfway point in the #MoveMoreBurnMore workout challenge. By this point your body will finally be through the difficulty of adjusting to the hard work of a fitness routine, and you might find you actually crave a workout.
Part Three graduates into heavier weight, lower rep dumbbell exercises designed to build more lean muscle. Why? Because lean muscle keeps burning calories even when you’re just sitting on the couch among many, many other health benefits. This is the point in your training that, if combined with proper nutrition, you will really be able to see a difference. By the end of the 90 Day Plan, your friends and family will be able to see it as well. CLICK HERE TO READ PART THREE.
If you’re unfamiliar with working out at the gym, this #MoveMoreBurnMore workout plan is a great guide. Don’t be embarrassed to print out the workouts and bring them in with you. The most fit people at the gym are carrying notebooks, books, or are tracking their progress on a fitness app, so take a page from their book and get in the habit of exercising with a plan and direction. Your workout will be much more efficient if you follow a well-designed daily plan, especially if the designer is an expert.

Don’t have a gym membership? Consider a workout DVD series that progresses in difficulty. I started with Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred (it’s an Amazon #1 Bestseller for a reason,) or you can try something more intense like P90X. Committing to an exercise DVD (or an app like NTC which I cannot recommend enough because FREE,) will bring all the same health benefits of increased lean muscle and decreased body fat without the gym price tag.
