I’ll begin by saying, please check with your own doctor before beginning any exercise program. Please realize that correct form and proper rest are required for best results and in order to prevent injury. Immediately stop any exercise and seek medical attention if you feel pain, dizziness, faint, or can’t catch your breath. You are responsible for yourself and your health.
I have always loved working out. I even have my degree in health and education. As the new year rolls in, I know that many people make it a goal to get fit. Many people will join gyms and begin new routines. That is awesome and I actually love to see people trying to better their lives. One problem that hinders people who are not yet in the habit of regularly exercising is when life events get in the way it becomes easy to quit. When that baby is sick, or the in-laws visit, or the weather gets bad it’s easier to make an excuse because there’s no backup plan.
I want to give anyone out there a plan for those days or even for those who don’t have access to a gym. If you have any questions about any exercise, I would be happy to answer them. I am not, however, a personal trainer. I hold several exercise certifications, but personal trainer is not one.
This is a workout that you can do at home or at the gym. You can choose to do all or part of this workout. If you don’t have stairs, you can jog in place for 30-45 seconds instead.
Remember to rest, drink plenty of water, and stop when you need to.
