I decided to do this in a three part series so that you can start with your current fitness level and build up as you get stronger! These routines are a great way to get total body toning because they combine fat burning cardio intervals with intensifying strength intervals. Each level gets harder so move up at your own pace and track your progress along the way! Do these with a few days a week of whatever cardio you like, running and walking are my favorites.
Remember, the most important thing is to listen to your body, if something is too hard scale back or if you need an extra rest day take it. Don’t forget at least one total rest day per week! You can find demos for each of the strength moves on youtube too. :)
There’s tons more at home exercise plans here! :)
I’m Nicole, 5’4, and my highest weight was 208lbs. I now weigh 185lbs.
I’m proud of myself for getting this far, although I’ve not been working as hard as I could be, so it’s time to step it up a gear.
I feel I’ve still got about 60lbs to lose but who knows when I get there? I’ve realised that you have to have more than being thin as your motivation throughout this - it’s really exciting to see yourself reach fitness goals and this can often be even more rewarding than seeing the scale go down!
I seem to hit a lot of plateaus lately and it’s extremely frustrating but I’m NEVER giving up. Remember to fall in love with yourself at any weight, I’m covered in stretch marks and sometimes it gets me down but then I remember what I love about myself!
Good luck everyone on becoming super healthy and fit!
You go girl!!! Never stop striving to achieve your dreams
