You're Halfway There!
Strength, cardio, plus healthy eating -- that's the balanced approach that will get you lasting results. If you followed the workouts in the previous month, by now you're starting to see the difference. "After 30 days, changes in your body fat, endurance, and strength should be noticeable," says creator Joe Dowdell, co-owner of Peak Performance in New York City.
As seen in the October issue of FITNESS magazine, this "Lose Weight" workout is part of the "You Can Do It!" makeover plan. It corresponds to the blue instructions on page 84 through 87. If you'd like to get your workout plan delivered to your inbox each week, sign up for the 8-week "You Can Do It" makeover plan, and we'll e-mail you easy-to-follow guides every week to help you lose weight!
The first four moves will warm you up while focusing on core strength and flexibility. The remaining six will sculpt all your major muscle groups; do these in the order given, 5 through 10, then repeat twice. For best results, follow the weekly workout planner below.Your Week-by-Week Workout Plan
