Total Body Exercises are the key to this month's programs. By using muscles in both the upper and lower parts of the body simultaneously, you'll burn more calories in a shorter amount of time.
Work your abs as you do these exercises. Draw your belly button towards your back to stabilize, strengthening as toning your core as you build muscle.
Emphasize the big muscle groups: legs, back and chest. Arm and shoulder exercises are optional and will also incorporate some leg movement such as lunges, squats or stepping up to balance.
Do strength training every other day and cardio every day. Don't skip when time is short, even 15-20 minutes of exercise can make a difference and you'll feel much better for it.
