Workout #1

workouts 2

My wife belongs to a club which sent out workouts to help its members start a fitness program in the new year. These exercises do not require any equipment, just your own body weight to give you a complete workout of your whole body. They consist of half of the exercises in the scientific 7-minute workout. The big difference is that instead of doing each for 30 sec. in succession for high intensity, you do each exercise a specified number of times. Some look deceptively simple but are in fact quite challenging for couch potatoes.

25 Squats

20 Alternating lunges

10 Push Ups

20 Sit Ups

80 Bionic Jacks

Wall Sit 60 seconds

Repeat 3 or 4 times with a 1 minute break between rounds. However, unless you’re fit to begin with, you’ll probably need a longer break, and a likely pause in between the jumping jacks as well! Another workout will be issued next week so you don’t get into a rut and lose the training effect. Have fun as you lose some weight and gain some muscles!
