5 Tricks to Jumpstart Your Fitness Regimen
So 2013 is the year. You're getting off the couch and back into fighting shape. We've got your new rules to live by if you want results that last
Your first moveJanero has a simple move that even the least fit of us can try to get started. "Fitness beginners can start with something as simple as sitting at the edge of a chair with feet placed shoulder width apart and knees at a 90-degree angle," she says. "Once in position, stand up and squat back, repeat 15 to 20 times slowly. This form is the foundation for the perfect squat."
Janero recommends doing 2 to 3 sets of squats every other day to get your lower half ready for more intense exercise. She also recommends starting with some basic cardio, either walking or light jogging. "If you don't run a 5k the first month or two don't worry," she says. "The important part is just being active. You WILL get there."
