At Girls Gone Strong we recommend a balanced approach to training that incorporates strength training, metabolic conditioning, cardiovascular training, and restorative training. Workout routines for women that use a combination of these four types of training ensure your long-term health and happiness.
Below is our recommendation for how much of each type of training a women’s workout routine should include each week in order to achieve a balanced training program, where the goal is to look good, feel good, and feel healthy and strong:
Two to four days of strength training
One to two days of HIIT (high-intensity interval training)
One to two days of MIC (moderate intensity cardio)
Restorative activities as often as possible
There are a few different workout plan structures that you can use when you’re strength training depending on how much time you have, your experience, your goals, and what you enjoy doing.
