Egy blog egy boszorkányról és konyháról, életről és módról, izomról és építésről, zsírról és csökkentésről. Magamnak: mementónak, és mert szeretek naplót írni, fotózni; másoknak: örömre, ötletnek, olvasgatásra.

Freeletics (Aphrodite, kiegészítés)
You recently joined Freeletics. Good choice! You are about to become fitter and better looking than ever before! We want to introduce you to one of our workouts: Aphrodite. It is very well suited to get started. Aphrodite is tough. Like all of our workouts. But no worries, you can and will make it!
Aphrodite does not require equipment. There are no mandatory breaks. That means you are supposed to make as few breaks as possible and to keep them as short as you can. In general, it is important to complete workouts with the exact same order of exercises as stated in the description and to work through them as fast as possible.
You can find all workouts as well as tutorials explaining the single exercises in the “Workouts” section of our website.
You might need more than one attempt to get through your first workout. That’s totally normal. It’s also totally normal to be sore all over after your first attempts. It’s actually the first big challenge to complete a full Freeletics workout. Also, it makes sense to repeat the first workout a couple of times to get used to it. Your improvements will surprise you.
And don’t forget: Quitting is not an option.
There is one more thing and we need you to take it seriously: Yes, we don’t quit before we’ve reached our goals. Yes, we are willing to work hard for them. And yes, we will all become unbelievably fit. But – and this is very important to us – our health always comes first. At the beginning, this might mean that you can’t complete entire workouts. But never mind. You will improve quickly.
Don’t get us wrong. It has nothing to do with quitting. Freeletics is very intense and there are dangers to it - like to every intense type of training and especially at the beginning or after you haven’t been training for a while when your body is not yet accustomed to it. Before you got used to the intensity, the greatest danger lies in strength exercises such as pullups. If you are not even able to perform the easy versions absolutely controlled and with proper form anymore, it is simply too much. In fact, people who are already in shape but who have no Freeletics experience have to be just as cautious as totally untrained people. The intensity changes everything. Give yourself some time. We want you to get fitter than you have ever been before. But we don’t want you to hurt yourself the first time you train Freeletics. Don’t confuse that and give yourself the time necessary to adapt.
In general, we recommend you to train Freeletics at least four times per week. In the first weeks, three times are fine as well to adapt to our workouts.
Freeletics is really tough, especially at the beginning. Workout times exceeding an hour are totally normal. Also, don’t be discouraged if you can’t make the workload from week one. It is all part of the process. You will improve much faster than you think. Thousands of our athletes have done it before you. YOU can do it as well!
If you have a specific goal such as losing weight, building muscle, getting stronger or getting a better endurance, you should get the Freeletics Coach. Simply because it works. Our Coach is a fast and proven way to get the results you want to have. You will not have to worry about anything anymore. Simply follow the plan and give it your all and you will have great results. In the same way, thousands of others have been successful before you.
But we are honest with you: If you just want to try out Freeletics or if you just want to move a bit once a week, you don’t have to get the Coach. The free workouts will work fine for you.
