OK, so you’ve made up your mind to get in shape. What next? You must have a plan. “Fail to plan and you will plan to fail,” as the saying goes. Keep a basic monthly calendar for your fitness plan somewhere visible, perhaps, on your refrigerator. That way, every morning when you get up and walk into the kitchen, you’ll see what your daily fitness appointment is that day. Treat this as an important—a cannot-be-missed meeting. It’s that important; and yes, you are worth it.
You don’t need a gym or any fancy equipment. All you need is your imagination, a little fire in your stomach and determination to grind it out.
If you’re truly serious about getting fit and shredding some weight, we recommend you try working out at least 5 days a week. Consistency is the name of the game. Get yourself some cool, comfortable workout gear and a good pair of running shoes. The last thing you’ll need is a pair of dumbbells (or a 2-liter bottle, a heavy book, brick or jar lying around your house if you don’t have the equipment). Generically speaking – the average male uses 10kg dumbbells whilst their female counterparts use 4kg.
Next is the workout plan. We’ll break down a week for you to give you an idea of how it works. The goal is for you to take this format, get creative, and build your own plan.
