So... I started working out this week - yay!
I convinced my husband (who, as an ex-football player, has a ton of experience with working out) to come up with a plan for me to easily fall back in to a routine. I can honestly admit that I'm not the "work out" type, so keeping it under 10 minutes was essential. He gave me a plan that did just that and I thought, "Ha! This is gonna be a breeze..." To my surprise, every workout so far has been under five minutes but it pushes me for every single minute! I love it! (I'll share what I've done so far at the end of this blog).
The plan is challenging enough that I don't feel like I'm wasting my time, yet, simple enough that I'm committed to keeping it up. I feel like it's a great option for someone like me who is ready to get fit and needs a starter plan that can fit easily into an already busy life! At the end of each day, whether I've done my workout in the morning or right before I go to sleep, I feel accomplished and ready to move on to the next day.
There is also a Beginner to Buff 30-Day Challenge found on AbbaFit's website (sign up for the newsletter to get emails when new challenges are posted) that uses simple moves with your own weight/resistance to get a more toned body. Another great solution for anyone looking to add a second workout to their day or a primary workout for someone just getting started!
Take a look at the plan below that I've been following so far and try it out! Tell me what you think! Like I said, it may not look like it but I got a GREAT workout each day in under five minutes!
