Hi, thinking of downloading a couple of the Davina McCall 7 minute workouts from iTunes as have heard good things about them - can anyone tell me if you should do it every day, or have a rest day in between or do it 6 days a week? Thanks
gamerchick how many do you do if you do it 5 days a week? I'd been doing warm up, then 3 "bits" then the stretch so it came to just over 1/2 hr - couldn't keep that up 5 days a week but maybe I could if I did less? am I missing the 7 minute point by doing 1/2 hr of it? !
It depends. Sometimes I do just one 7 minute.. or I'll do 14 or I'll do the full half hour. For eg sat and Sunday I'll do the half hours and Monday I'll do 7 minutes to get rid of weekend stiffness. Tuesday I have off the workouts and just do the warm up.. Wed and Thurs I'll do 2, Friday off apart from warm up ( the warm up is brill to start the day) and back to Sat and Sun.
I'm the same.. sometimes you just can't be arsed to do half an hour and 7 minutes are over before you know it. I would have given up by now I think if I just went whole hog and it's so good for anxiety it's worth keeping up.
I do like what it does for the backside though, I keep admiring it in the mirror
Thanks - it's in sections on iTunes, any recommendations for which sections to try first? And I can't see a warm up section, might that be included in the first section do you think? Just don't want to pay the full £12.99 until I know if I'm going to like it
I work out every day and if I'm doing 7 minute fit as part of my workout, I do at least 5 sections. Other people do a couple of sections 3-4 times a week.
What is important is knowing your body, knowing when to rest a muscle group and building in enough challenge.
Perhaps start off with a combination of two (fat burner and box fit will give you a good cardio workout but bear in mind that fat burner requires a weight iirc, ultimate fat burner is weight free). Aim to do both 3-4 times a week. If you like it, get one of the resistance based ones or the abs and mix it up a bit. If you definitely still like it, get the rest!
Ed, the personal trainer puts combinations up on twitter and facebook and if you ask him for advice, he'll get back to you really, really quickly. He's a lovely chap. Bendy too. You'll see...
