What to do this week: When you are finished make sure you stay accountable to what you did and blog about it below in the comment section.

Tuesday (Wednesday for 2000 McKinney)  
Try doing more quick bursts.
2 minutes Slow (you can make this shorter if you want but if you are going all out the 2 minutes of lowering your heart rate will be good for the intervals)
1 Minute Medium
1 Minute Fast (Really push yourself for 1 minute)

Repeat the cycle  for 30 minutes or up to 45 minutes before stretching

Thursday (Friday for 2000 McKinney)        
30 Slow
30 Fast
If you are in the gym, switch exercise equipment (stair stepper, eliptical, bike, rowing machine, treadmill, etc.) every 5-`0 minutes

SATURDAY –  7am or 8am at Coppell Location
                      If you can not be there, we suggest you to legs, core, cardio on your fitness DVD or legs and cardio on your own.

If it just says cardio, you do not have to worry about slow, medium, and fast. Just push yourself and get your heart going for that specific period of time.

If you want to know how to figure out what speed you are going with your fitness level, here is a simple way to figure it out.
Slow – easily carry on a conversation
Medium – can only say one or two sentences without having to catch your breath
Hard – Can not talk

Also, 30 mintues is the minimum you should be doing. We have put the off-day cardio workouts as doing a minumum of 30 minutes. You can decide to do longer workouts as it will only help in your progress. What we see, though, is people thinking 60 minutes is too long (that is what the USDA recommends each day for weight loss) so they jsut don’t workout. Finding at least 30 minutes those off-days to focus on your health is something that you should do. If you can add more time, great.
