Today is your last day for excuses that you can’t exercise, or you’re too out of shape, or two old, or whatever. This is the routine that I give to my beginning diet and conditioning clients, which anyone can do on their own level. In seven short minutes, you’ll fuel your metabolism to the point that your body will burn more calories long after you complete this exercise. What’s more, the “endorphins” – the “feel-good hormones” that result from exercise, begin to flow after 7 minutes of exercise. Here’s the routine:
Minute #1 – Warmup – 30 seconds of neck circles (15 seconds in each direction) followed by 30 seconds of arm circles (15 seconds in each direction)
Minute #2 – Warmup – 30 seconds of seal claps followed by 30 seconds of hula hoops (15 seconds in each direction)
Minute #3 – Cardio – 60 seconds of marching, stepping as high as is comfortable for you
Minute #5 – Flexibility – 60 seconds of side lunges
Minute #6 – Combining cardio with strength and flexibility – 60 seconds of squats
Minute #7 – Cooldown, hug yourself while bending down, followed by a big upward stretch and thanks to the Almighty!
Do this every day, and wait and see how good you feel! G-d bless for great health, LB
