Clock your Cardio
Cardio is not the most exciting thing to do at the gym. I’m the last person you’ll see sitting on a cardio machine for 45 minutes at a steady pace. However, getting the heart rate elevated and getting a good sweat is important to overall health and fitness. I’ve tried to find different ways to get my cardio in that don’t require minutes on end of steady state walking or stair climbing (but I will do it if I have to!)
Lower and Upper Body Workout

I LOVE squats. I think squats are one of the best bodyweight movements. They challenge the entire body, utilize multiple joints, and can be modified in so many ways. I figured what better time than to start a new challenge than the beginning of a new month! Are you ready for 30 days of killer legs?!
