After you’re locked in on your new diet, next you’ll need to focus on 3 key exercise groups: cardio, strength training and ab exercises. Look at a plan that has you at the gym about 3-4 times per week.
Cardio can be walking, running, biking, swimming….anything that gets your heart going. A minimum of 2 times per week for 30-45 minutes is what you want.
Strength training is vital because 3 pounds of muscle sitting around doing nothing burns as many calories as a jogging 1 mile. 30-45 minutes at least 2 times a week will do.
If you’re not sure what exercises you should be doing, our website has many workouts targeting different areas of the body.
Finally, ab exercises. Your abdominal muscles must be worked a minimum of 3 times per week. There tons of different abdominal exercises out there, so find a few that suit you and be sure to mix it up occasionally.
Trainer’s Tip: Every 2 weeks or so, switch up your routine to keep your body confused and engaged. Change up the weight, reps and exercises.
And that’s it! Get working and after 3 months of dedication you’ll have the results you want, but keep in mind, everyone’s different and results will vary.
