The ABC Workout, November/December 2018

As I mentioned in the original ABC Workout post, I plan on changing the program every two months. Considering I started it on August 21, 2018, it is time now to review it.  But first, a little recap.

Since August 21, I ended up doing 7 cycles of the ABC workout. That means I worked out 21 times in two months, or roughly every other weekday. That’s less than I expected, so it’s something to work on next time. For this round, I’m setting a goal of doing 10 rounds.

The workout was challenging but very rewarding. I definitely felt a difference in my strength and body. I also was able to increase the weights I’d been lifting by quite a bit. I definitely like this formula and I think it’s something I can stick with.

I’m adding a little twist this time around: the C workout will still be free, but I am going to focus on core/abs workouts. I will have a standard workout to go to, and have the flexibility to try different workouts if I want to add some variety. So here’s the new ABC Workout, starting tomorrow:
