Week 2, here we go!

Life happens and sometimes it gets really difficult to balance exercise with everyday tasks. The goal for this week is to adjust to an active lifestyle and make it work within your schedule. Don’t stress if you are taking a day off (just call it your day of rest) but make sure that you are still making time to train. If you need to swap days due to your schedule, feel free to do so but make sure that if you are doing medium to advanced activities, schedule a recovery day in between (easy activities are ok).

Day 1: Rest

Day 2: Newbies: Workout 20 minutes: bike, elliptical, treadmill. Beginners: Complete at least 20 minutes of NTC Get Strong Beginner Muscle Definer.

My activity: NTC Get Lean Beginner Hurricane workout

Day 3: Newbies: .25 mile jog (no walking!) at a comfortable and slow pace, do twice (can take a break in between). Beginners: 1 mile jog (no walking) at an easy, comfortable pace.
