With a new beginning comes the initial setup. The setup always gets me super excited because it’s a fresh start and a chance to try something new.
For TeamRH this involved signing up (with a discount code my friend gave me who does this too) and also setting up the app. Now, I did run into some difficulties here, probably from my own stupidity. I clicked yes to “Working out from home” and didn’t realise that a lot of the workouts they provide you actually require barbells.
I don’t have barbells. I don’t even have room for barbells. However, I do have dumbbells which, after a bit of research, I believe I can use instead a lot of the time.
I’ve also bought myself resistance bands. The thing I didn’t know going into this was that a “workout” is solely strength training. No longer will my yoga count as a workout, unless a resistance band is involved.
I’m looking forward to figuring out how to incorporate resistance bands into my at-home workouts as well as beginning to strength train with the dumbbells.
My plan is to strength train twice a week and yoga once a week; but this is a limitation in the app as you can only choose 3 or 6 times a week. I did find guidance on how to handle this 2 times a week workout.
It’s yoga tonight, rest tomorrow, then first strength day on Thursday!
