This weight-lifting aficionado started their journey in January 2019. Joana's regimen consists of morning workouts 4-5 times per week, and each week day hones in on a different muscle group! while she switches up her workouts every 4-5 weeks, here's her general breakdown (take notes for inspo!):

Mondays: legs
Tuesdays: back and biceps
Wednesdays: yoga or rest day
Thursdays: legs (glute focused)
Fridays: chest, shoulders, and biceps

Whether you're just starting to work out, getting back into working out, or are already getting after it, Joana has one main piece of advice: Motivated or not, just keep doing it! 💪💪
