Week #2 Workout Routines:

In order to build a foundation and measure our progress, we are going to stick with the Lower & Upper Body Routines we did last week. These two routines are below.

Cardio Workout - Week #2

Cardio Workout - Week #2

You can run on the treadmill or outside if you'd like to do that instead of the above HIIT Cardio routine on the days designated as cardio workout days. If you choose to do your own cardio routine, try to do an interval run instead of steady-state cardio. For example, after warming up for five minutes, run at your max pace for 1 minute and then a moderate recovery pace for 2 minutes. You would repeat these two intervals for 10 rounds, or a total of 30 minutes. You can run outdoors, on the treadmill or use an elliptical, rower, stair stepper, spin bike, or arc trainer for your cardio workout if you'd like.

Good Luck #BarbellBabes!
