The Sweat app incorporates nine amazing programs that can be suitable for women of all lifestyles!
The workouts in these programs can easily be adapted to fit in with your current lifestyle. The programs are based around a weekly goal of:
- 2-4 x Resistance sessions, 5 sessions in BUILD
- 2-3 x Cardio sessions, including Low-Intensity and High-Intensity
- 1 x Active Recovery Session
- 1 x Rest Day
The Resistance workouts range from only 28 minutes to 60 minutes in length!
While the sessions mentioned above might seem like a lot to fit into your week, don't worry - there are still ways you can arrange your week to ensure you are reaching your goals!
For example, LISS and Resistance sessions can be completed on the same day, as can Active Recovery sessions. If you choose to do this, we recommend scheduling one in the morning and one later in the day to give your body enough time to recover in between these sessions. You are also able to break up your LISS sessions and complete them at separate times, such as going for two 15 minute walks throughout the day!
For those days when you're running really short of time, check out the Quick Workouts in the Sweat app, which range from only 15-20 minutes. You can find these workouts on the Workouts dashboard and completing them will count towards your weekly Resistance goal!
The Sweat app also provides a recommended weekly Planner to help structure your workout schedule. Simply open the app and select the recommended workout for that day! This can be easily changed to suit your busy lifestyle.
Below is an example of how your week could look:
- 3 Resistance sessions per week (Monday/Wednesday/Friday)
- 3 Low-Intensity Cardio (LISS) sessions (Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday)
- 1 Active Recovery (Saturday) and 1 Rest day (Sunday)
In terms of nutrition, the meal plans can be adapted to fit around your lifestyle as you can eat the meals at any time of the day, as long as you are not skipping any meals! The meal plans come with a weekly Shopping List, making it easy for you to prepare for your week ahead.
