I am going to post the weekly workout so I don’t hold anyone up who is just dying to get started on it…but I’m posting it with a caveat that there are not many explanations for the exercises. Tomorrow I am going to play with my phone and try to post some pictures and (just maybe!) a video or two. If you have any questions in the meantime, always ask me-either call, email, post a reply or catch me on Facebook. You can also Google most of these exercises-I tried to stick to popular exercises that would be easy to find. This workout is total body, and is a strength/cardio combo, as most of them are. It is also fairly leg intensive, which is great for caloric burn. The legs contain large muscle groups, which use up a lot of energy. Bonus!
Also…I don’t know if people are working out at a gym, at home, or a combination of both. Or if people are working out at all 🙂 So if you need modifications because you do not have a certain piece of equipment, or if most people are looking for body weight exercises they can do anywhere, please let me know! There are countless modifications to all exercises, so we can work with whatever you have!
Happy sweating!! 🙂
