Everyone’s motivation is high to get in shape. I say use it and get a jump start on your workouts!
A few tips on your New Year’s fitness plans:
- Keep your goals simple: Go to the gym 3 times a week, or run 2 times a week, or eat 5 servings of vegetables a day.
- Be realistic: If you know your schedule only allows for 3 workouts a week then don’t kid yourself in saying that you plan to go every day.
- Stay positive: If you miss a workout or eat a bad meal, it doesn’t mean that you completely failed. Get back on the program and move on.
- Make one workout goal and one nutrition goal: You have to address both for good results.
So let's get workin out!
Beginner Workout: Do all exercises in a row for 1 round. Do 4-6 rounds with 1-2 minute rests in between. Longer rests can be taken if needed.
Pushups on step
DB Curl and Press
15 reps. Max out advanced versions if possible, then finish with regular pushups.
10 reps over and back.
Max out reps.
12 reps. Max out advanced version if possible, then finish with regular step ups.
12 reps each side
Do 3 patterns out and back once.
For some beginners this can be a VERY intense workout. If you are a beginner, but only weigh 135 this may not be a big deal, but if you are 200 plus, be sure to take more rest as needed.
If the intermediate workout gets too easy for you gym studs and studdettes you can do the more difficult versions as shown in the videos or just move faster and you should die in no time.
Good luck and make it a great year for fitness!!
