Keep your motivation and interest high by remembering these simple tips:
• Set Goals For Yourself that are challenging but realistic. Remember, it may take a few weeks to be able to complete the entire workout easily, or to see changes in your weight or fitness level. Just five minutes of exercise, done several times per day, can change your health. Break your overall goals down into small, measurable steps.
• Record Your Progress by using the charts provided at the end of this booklet.
• Celebrate Your Successes – even the small ones! Give yourself incentives for reaching each of your goals, and reward yourself often.
• Take Setbacks In Stride. If you miss a day on your schedule (or even a week), it’s not too late to get back on track. If you are having trouble sticking to your goals, review them and make sure they are realistic. Make adjustments as you think they are needed.
YOUR WORKOUT WILL CONSIST OF THREE PHASES:
To prevent injury and maximize performance, we recommend that you begin each workout with at least 5 to 10 minutes of exercise that gradually increases your heart rate and warms up your muscles.
Stretching exercises are always an important part of any exercise program. We suggest that you do stretching exercises for your calves, hamstrings, hip flexors, triceps, shoulders, quads, and back.
Aerobic and Muscle Toning Workout
To gain the health and fitness benefits that you seek, the warm-up should be followed by 15 to 20 minutes. Build up to this amount as your current fitness level allows, and progress at a rate that is comfortable to you. As your fitness level increases you may want to gradually increase the length of your workouts to a total of 30 minutes per day. Start with 2 or 3 workouts per week. If losing weight is one of your goals, you may want to gradually increase your workouts to 5 or 6 days per week. More frequent workouts and longer durations require the body to burn more calories and use stored fat for energy.
Towards the end of the aerobic and muscle toning phase of your workout, return to a basic movement and gradually slow down the range of motion and tempo. Complete your workout with some gentle stretches. This allows your heart rate to drop gradually back toward its normal resting rate.
Life has teams that naturally bump heads: Chrissy Teigen vs. Twitter trolls, Kanye vs. T. Swift, and devout weightlifters vs. cardio enthusiasts. Working on your fitness can be daunting when you have two different camps telling you what’s best.
But is one really better than the other? These two forms of exercise offer different benefits and can come together for the greater good — a strong bod and stellar health.
