Is it okay to workout when I am sore?

Yes! Working out again will actually help your sore muscles feel better due to the increased blood flow to those muscles. During the first 2 weeks of your new workout program you will be the most sore and then it should subside a bit. You don’t have to be super sore after your workouts to see results, being TOO sore can actually be a bad thing. If you notice you are getting TOO SORE, like can hardly walk kind of sore, lighten up your weights a bit until your body adjusts.

When will I start to see results?

If you stick to the game plan you should start seeing results within 4-6 weeks. However, it is important to remember that everyone is different and sees results at different times, don’t give up! Just keep working hard and the results will show.

How often do the workouts change?

The BEST part of the zbody app is that the workouts change every 2 weeks to always keep you guessing and relieve you of a boring workout routine! They change every 2 weeks because I like you to get a used to a movement and execute the techniques before switching them up on you.

Can I switch between home and gym workouts?

YES! That is one of the best features of the zbody app! You can switch back and forth by using the “My Program” tab on the side menu.

How heavy should the weights be? When do I increase the size of weight I am using?

The weights you’re using should feel challenging but you should still be able to complete movements executing proper form. As a general rule of thumb, you should be struggling the last 2-3 reps of every set. This means some heavy breathing, some pushing yourself, and some ugly faces! It’s not always pretty (;

Should we be incorporating cardio along with app workouts? And if so, how much?

The gym program already has recommended cardio inside the actual program but the home version does not. Cardio is OPTIONAL and not required to see results. Due to my workouts being pretty high intensity, you will already be burning a good amount of calories and fat. As a general baseline, I recommend my app clients add in cardio 2-3x a week around 20 minute sessions (if you are in gym program, this is already laid out for you.)

Remember you do not want to overdo the cardio because it can be detrimental to gaining muscle and can slow recovery time between workouts.

What equipment is needed for the at home program?

What is the workout schedule for zbody app?

The ZBody App workouts feature a 6 day split in both home and gym, 3 lower body days and 3 upper. The weekly schedule is laid out as: Booty, Shoulders, Chest & Triceps, Legs, REST, Booty, Back & Biceps. I recommend following this schedule as it’s designed with proper rest times the way it’s set up. If you need to change your schedule due to time or work constraints, please make sure to have at least 48 hours between training the same body part.

If you need to take an extra rest day or two, you can! The app will open back up on the day you left off on.
