Date is set, and the plan is in place. You should actually know at least the first 30 days of your plan and what days you have time to work out. Now, to get in to planning those days , lets take a look at the exercises you will be doing. Tip #3 – Types of Exercise Some of the things to consider: Have you worked out in the past? If yes, what did you enjoy? Group Fitness Options Yoga Options Cardio Options Recreational Activities Freeweight Options Bodyweight Options Big Box Gym Rec Center Personal Trainer Options Youtube (? please use extreme discretion here) If you are just starting out, I would recommend no more then 4 days/week and no more then 60 minutes per session. The best example of a training week would be free weights Mon/Thur and Cardio Tue/Friday. This would give the body optimum time to recover and rest since it isn’t used to the rigorous activity it will be experiencing. If you have never planned a workout before, we highly recommend the imuscle2 workout application. For less then $5 on apple or android, it is one of the most complete exercise apps we have ever seen.

Bored with your same old AB routine? Abs not getting as sore as they used to when you work them out? Try this mix of strength and endurance exercises that is sure to get your heart pumping, and your abs burning.Since exercises are performed in a quick fashion, it also doubles as a perfect circuit routine to help build your cardio. Focus is on all of the core muscles front and back. This intermediate routine can be done at home (if you have access to a yoga ball and medicine ball ) or in the gym, while easily substituting items not available with things you can find around your house. We recommend doing the entire workout routine top to bottom as fast as possible(2-0-2 rhythm). Keep track of the time closely resting 20 seconds between each set, and 30-60 seconds between exercises. As always, make sure to stretch and warm up for at least 5 minutes pre workout, and cool down and stretch after workout. Have fun and be safe!

Who doesn’t love tacos right? The problem is, most tacos that you buy at resteraunts are made from unhealthy GMO induced corn and cooked in dirty corn oil.
