Oprah Winfrey once said, “Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.” You’ve made it through 6 weeks of the Fit 5! I know this workout series has been a challenging one, but that is what makes it worth doing. I hope you are feeling proud and I hope you are sharing your success with others.
If you started with us on week 1, you should not only be feeling a sense of accomplishment, but you should also be noticing a change in your body. All the extra calories you’ve burned as well as the load bearing exercises you’ve endured should be having you feeling and looking more firm and lean than when you began. Keep up the good work!
As you embark on this week’s exercise program, remember that exercise has so many benefits beyond calorie burning (although we love the calorie burning!).
Today’s workout is designed to last 30 minutes and is developed so each individual can exercise at his or her own pace. Each exercise should be performed to failure—when you feel as though you can’t complete even one more rep—or to the max number of reps listed. For example if the exercise is squat jumps and lists a max of 50 reps, you should do as many reps as possible up to 50. If you complete 10 reps and find that you can’t do another rep while maintaining good form, then simply move on to the next exercise. If you can complete all 50 with good form, do so and then move to the next exercise.
If you get through all 5 exercises in less than 30 minutes (which should be the case), repeat the cycle until the 30 minutes is up.
Please note: Before adopting any new exercise routine, you should consult your physician.
