Total Body Day!

Today’s workout is a total body workout that can be done at the gym or at home. Instead of doing 8 reps of each, I am going to do each exercise for one minute and do 3 or 4 rounds. This is just so I can do lighter weights but more reps. Also, make sure…

Cardio Day!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, but today we need to make up for all those extra calories we ate yesterday.
