Everyone knows you can’t transform your body overnight. If you commit to the principles and plans I have prescribed you can transform your body for the rest of your life, only it won’t take you a lifetime to start seeing results. Featured in this article are tips and healthy habits, from a simple nutrition plan to workout ideas.
Now these numbers aren’t made up, they are based on new scientific research from the University of Connecticut that shows you can lose up to 10 pounds of fat per month without feeling hungry or deprived. Like any other physical activity working out has to be approved by a physician, who gives you the go ahead to start your activities.
Working out gives you an edge over belly fat, stress, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Working out has also been attributed to helping persons stay focused, motivated and happier. For the best results we suggest your workouts should be anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Let's get started!
One Week Routine
Each day we will focus on different muscle groups with one rest day during the 5 day schedule. Before starting any exercise be sure to stretch and warm up for 5-10 minutes. This is necessary to help reduce injury and get your muscles conditioned to start working out.
Monday - Lower body: squats, lunges
Tuesday - Upper body: Pull ups, push ups
Wednesday - Rest
Thursday - Lower body: jump squats
Friday - Upper body: shoulder press
** Always do abs throughout the workout, that’s the only muscle that be be worked out every day.
