Fit For Thought: Exercise is Not Complicated…

Hey ya’ll! Happy Friday to you all! I am glad to be at the end of this week. It feels like the days have been going by so fast. I promise you I am waking up and going to sleep within a few short hours of one another! Lol!



Recently I was talking with some friends about exercise, and how sometimes people tend to make it more complicated than it really needs to be. From our conversation I learned that a lot of people would love to be more consistent with their visits to the gym, but they don’t really know what to do when they get there.

I cannot tell you the amount of foolery I have seen while working out in the gym! I have seen people lifting too much weight, people with improper form, people holding onto the treadmill while in incline mode, and a whole bunch of people just making stuff up! Lawd it is so sad, but have no fear! I have compiled my “go to” simple to follow exercise routine for a person of any level to share with you!

Warm up: 10 minute warm up jog on the treadmill followed by a dynamic warm up (Complete each exercise for 30 secs: arm swings, jumping jacks, squats, knee pull downs, and alternate bent over toe touches).

Workout: Complete each exercise for 3 sets and 10-12 reps (reps may vary depending on desired results). Squats, bicep curls, lunges, overhead triceps extension, straight leg dead lifts, crunches/abs (3 sets/25 reps for abs).

Cool Down: 2 minutes backward petal on seating bike followed by full body stretch.

Make sure to complete the workout in that order, and rest 30 seconds between reps 1 minute rest between completed sets. It is great for a beginner or a more advanced athlete.

…So the next time you want to go to the gym, and are not quite sure what to do, remember this workout. You’ve got this! I believe in you! I hope you have a fabulous and fit Friday!
