Here for you is a program which you can do, on your own and will help speed up your metabolism to assist with your weight loss regime. The first program can be done in a gym or outdoors, however some exercises may need to be modified depending on the equipment you have. This is good for fitness outdoors on your own or in groups
To start off with I suggest you do the weight and cardio on day 1 follwed by the abdominal and cardio circuit day 2 followed by a rest day or a day of light activity(your choice of something fun/recreational).
You can mix the order of training if you choose, but I suggest you do not have any more than 2 rest days in a row or 2 work days in a row, unless you are a seasoned athlete with a specific program.
Please adjust the the weights if they are too heavy, as it is preferable to complete the allocated number of repetitionsto gain the maximum benefit.
This also applies for the cardio. Try to attain to those numbers but I woud prefer you to lessen the incline than slow down the pace.
I look forward to hearing about your progress and results.
Yours in Health and Fitness,
