It’s time to increase the duration or frequency of your workouts. You want to shoot for about 150 minutes total of moderate to intense aerobic activity every week. Keep your interval workouts to no more than 3 per week and add another long cardio session (these are NOT strolls).

Have you been doing your strength sessions? If it’s been difficult working these in, try doing it during or after your aerobic workout. If you want to move up from bodyweight exercises, a band or tube is a lightweight option that you can take with you anywhere (hold it, put it into a pocket, etc). You can easily do strength intervals for biceps, triceps, back and shoulders. If you watch TV at night, these can also be done while watching your favorite show. Multitasking at its best! Also, do not forget to stretch when you are done!

If you have any questions on how to use the bands/tubes, feel free to shoot me an email.

Have a happy 4th!
