Working Out

Here is the current workout that I’m doing with my trainer:

Cardio:

  • Aim for at least 30 minutes, 3x/week  (Right now, I’m doing about 45 minutes on the treadmill)
  • Treadmill–use at least a 2% incline
  • Stay within my Target Heart Rate to reach peak fat-burning potential
  • Mini-trampoline–do 2x/week @ 15 minutes each time (helps reduce cellulite)

Strength Training:

  • Do 2-3 sets of 20 reps for each exercise
  • Start out with 3 lb. free weights & work your way up
  • Alternate upper & lower body exercises (i.e., one day do upper, next day do lower, incorporate a rest day & then repeat cycle)
  • Incorporate squats, calf raises, leg lifts (I love doing these while watching TV instead of sitting on the couch.  I do calf raises while I brush my teeth & counter push-ups while in the kitchen!)
