A new full-body dumbbell workout from Back On Pointe!

A new full-body dumbbell workout from Back On Pointe!

New for April: Endurance Edition!

The directions are simple: find the current date on the calendar, see what workout(s) it asks for, and pick one from each section listed for that date.

For example, if today it says “Arms” and “General,” I’d find an arm workout and a general workout to do today. (The Endurance Calendar also has “stretch” as a category; I do not have any stretching routines, but simply take about ten minutes to stretch out and relax when stretching is called for, or try a yoga video online.)

If you’d like to write about your experiences during the month or see how others are doing, please use the tag “BoP: April”. By all using this tag, we can see what others are doing during the month and send others encouragement along the way. Let’s all support each other on our journeys! (If you’re not on Tumblr but still use these calendars, feel free to update us on the Back On Pointe Facebook Page or the Back On Pointe Fitocracy Group!)

During the month, remember that you should take as many rest days as you need, modify any workouts that you cannot do, stay hydrated, get more low-intensity cardio, and eat well.

Have fun!

p.s. Any of the calendars can be modified. If you are training for a half-marathon, feel free to count that as your cardio on cardio days. If you’re sore in the arms from helping a friend move, substitute a butt workout instead. It’s all about you!
