I based this on the Blogilates calendar, but added an extra cardio day and moved the rest day to better fit my schedule. I'll decide on the exact workouts to do week by week. Here's a look at some of my favorite (all FREE) routines in each category, as well as my schedule for this week.

High intensity interval training (HIIT) is probably my favorite type of exercise. Here are some great examples.
FitnessBlender's HIIT videos, like this Kettlebell HIIT
Nike Training Club Get Focused arms workouts
Nike Training Club Get Focused legs workouts

And finally, as an example, here's what this week's workout schedule looks like:
