Okay, you’re right. It’s not COMPLETELY different, but after all these years I still think Monty Python is funny, and we are doing something KIND OF different this week, so I went for it. 🙂
It’s CUTBACK WEEK again, yay!! And that’s a great time to shake things up a little – maybe try something kind of different! – because we’re taking our intensity down a notch.
This week’s “different thing” is SPLIT DAY training. You’ve probably heard of it before. Simply put, it means that you train individual body parts on split days, rather than your whole body every day.
You might have noticed that I rarely train this way. I do have some “body part” workouts, but probably 85% or more of my workout videos are full body. That’s because – if I’m being completely honest here – I’m sort of lazy. Split day training requires a fair amount of planning ahead and the work itself can be quite intense and rigorous. And even though I love me some strength training… I’m just not that dedicated. 🤣
But in the interest of showing YOU different types of training – because maybe you’ll love this so much you’ll want to train this way even longer! – we’re giving it a bit of a go this week, starting with full body work and then finishing the week with split training. Let me know what you think!

On MONDAY, we’re starting the week with a quick, all-new STRENGTH LADDER that targets and tones all our major muscle groups in every plane of motion. This is a perfect workout to do with light weights during cutback week and heavy weights on a more intense week. The SUGGESTED STACKER is a fun standing abs workout that’ll really challenge your balance.
TUESDAY’S Let’s RUN podcast is a brisk WALK + RUN with one minute intervals while we chat about how to best meet your weight loss goals – should you go on a diet, or change your lifestyle? I share my thoughts and I’d love to hear yours!
WEDNESDAY’S workout is the start of our introduction to split day training with a fun and fast-paced UPPER BODY + ABS HIIT routine. The 20-minute video moves along quickly and you’ll really feel that upper body burn!
On THURSDAY, we’re tackling the LOWER BODY with a short and sweaty high-low workout that includes quick cardio intervals and long, tough bodyweight strength. The SUGGESTED STACKER is all about those #bootygains with some challenging single leg work.
And FRIDAY, well… you know we’re doing ABS, right? This WEIGHTED ABS routine targets the midsection with core stability exercises meant to tighten and tone the internal and external abdominals and obliques for a total tummy burn. The SUGGESTED STACKER is a favorite of mine – a reverse intensity walking workout with short, challenging bursts of heavy weight work.
