Remember to do some Cardio before you work out to get your heart rate higher.
This can include: running (both around the block or on the spot), skipping, jumping jacks, etc.
Also, Make sure to do each repetition and set for EACH leg when the workout requires it (ie. Walking lunges,
calf raises and Leg raises).
Always, Rest for at least 45 seconds in between each set.
Rotate days when you do Upper Body and Core & Lower Body. Try to work out 3-4 times a week.
Finally, record what you are able to do. In the chart is a suggested amount of times that I ENCOURAGE you to
do all of. If the repetitions are too high, lower them, but always try to do 3 sets.
If it helps, try to make your own chart with dates and how many repetitions you were able to do, then see if
you can do more the next time! Goodluck!
