Before beginning the program, please take a few minutes to complete the fit test to get a benchmark on your fitness level. At the end of the 12-weeks we will re-take the test to see how much we've improved!Unlock
Welcome to Phase One!
The first phase in our 12-week plan is the foundation phase. In this phase, we focus on foundational exercises to ensure we are able to execute each exercise with good form.
Please note, being able to execute exercise does NOT mean you need to be able to execute every option of every exercise with good form. Nor does it mean you have to be able to do every version of every exercise. As long as you are able to complete your chosen exercise (or exercises) with good form by the end of the 4 weeks you are ready to move on to the second stage.
About the Workouts
In phase one, your workouts are set up in a circuit style. This means you will complete all of the reps of one exercise, then immediately move on to the second exercise completing all reps, then moving on to the third exercise and so on.
When you've finished the last exercise you will rest for up to 2 minutes, then depending on what level you are, you may go back and complete one or two more rounds of the circuit.
The number of rounds (or sets) you do in this phase depends on your level.
Beginner: 1 round
Intermediate: 2 rounds
Advanced: 2-3 rounds
While you only "need" to rest between sets, if you need to stop and take a breather during your exercises, please do.
During phase 1, it is recommended you complete a minimum of 2 workouts each week, but 3 is ideal.
Choosing to do them on non-consecutive days whenever possible is recommended as it allows adequate recovery time between workouts.
At the end of the four weeks, if you don't feel ready to move on to the next phase you can continue with these workouts for an extra week or two.
Choosing your difficulty level
Feel free to "mix and match" your workout to make it perfect for you. Maybe you need to do the beginner version of a push-up, but can do the advanced version of a wide squat - go for it! You can do different difficulty levels and different numbers of reps depending on your abilities/strengths. Just make sure you keep track in your workout notes so you know what version of each exercise you are doing each time you complete the workout.
You are always doing the opposite workout than you did the previous time, so you are always doing workout A, B, A, B, A, B regardless of how much time there was between workouts. That means if you are doing 3 workouts/week, one week you will to A, B, A and the following week you will do B, A, B.Unlock
For each WOWM video, I will indicate what phase, which workout, how many rounds or sets, how many reps, and which difficulty level I am demonstrating in the title to make it easy to find what you are looking for.Unlock
