Two calendars for March: the basic calendar and the beginner’s calendar!

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.

If you’d like to write about your experiences during the month or see how others are doing, please use the tag “BoP: March”. 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!)

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!

Stretch! But first always make sure you do some cardio before you stretch. Do 20-30 jumping jacks then get into stretches. I reccomend left and right splits for at least 30 seconds and no more than a minute for each side. Also your middle splits and gravity splits! Gravity splits are a fast way to get your middle splits if you do them for 5-10 minutes a day. What you do is lay on your back in front of a wide piece of wall. Scoot your butt up against the wall and do your middle splits against the wall. Hope that helps!
