Week 1: Abs and Arms Day

This evening workout is targeting to boost metabolism and lose muffin tops.  In week 1, I wanted to take things easy, so I leaned towards cardio (the easy part for me).    Using interval cardio and weight training help keeping the heart rate up and the fat burning.

So…without further ado, here is the routine

0:00-5:00 Warm up (Power walking @ 3.5 mph, 0% incline)
5:00-7:00 Jog @ 6.5 mph, 0% incline
7:00-9:00 10 plank twists
Start in plank, dip hips to one side (keep your core strong; relax your shoulders), slowly return to plank
9:00-11:00 Power walk @ 3.5 mph, 5% incline
11:00-12:00 Power walk @ 5 mph, 5% incline
12:00-14:00 Power walk @ 3.5 mph, 5% incline
14:00-16:00 10 plank twists
16:00-18:00 15 triceps dips
18:00-23:00 Power walk @ 4.0 mph, 5% incline
23:00-25:00 10 plank twists
25:00-27:00 15 mountain climbers
Start in plank; bring right knee towards right elbow, return to plank, and then bring left knee towards left elbow.
27:00-29:00 15 triceps dips
29:00-31:00 Power walk @ 4.5 mph, 0% incline
31:00-32:00 Power walk with biceps curls (3lbs) @ 4.5 mph, 0%
32:00-33:00 Power walk @ 4.5 mph 0% incline
33:00-34:00 Power walk with biceps curls (3lbs) @ 4.0 mph, 0%
34:00-36:00 15 mountain climbers
36:00-37:00 5 chaturanga push ups (elbows in)
37:00-39:00 Power walk @ 3.5 mph, 10% incline
39:00-41:00 15 mountain climbers
41:00-42:00 5 chaturanga push ups
42:00-45:00 30 bicycle crunches
45:00-47:00 5 burpees with chaturanga
47:00-50:00 30 bicycle crunches
50:00-60:00 Stretch

I will try to find some videos for some of the moves, but meanwhile…ENJOY!
