Workout Plan Stage 1
This first stage is all about getting you moving. We recommend 30-45 minutes of low to moderate intensity exercise 5 or 6 times per week. Walking is the most common form of exercise in this stage, but if you would prefer to use an exercise machine, that is acceptable. Your goal should be to keep your heart rate above 65% of your maximum and maintain that for 30-45 minutes. Remember to start slow and listen to your body. You should feel challenged but not completely exhausted. Next week we are going to add in some warm-up exercises to your routine.
BIKE, TREADMILL, ELLIPTICAL, OR WALK
