Here is a simple program to introduce high-intensity interval training (HIIT) into your cardiorespiratory exercising. Please know, however, that HIIT is not advised for beginning exercisers and should not be used more than twice per week—steady-state cardio should be used on other days. PLEASE CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE BEGINNING ANY NEW EXERCISE PROGRAMS.

This link takes us to an excellent, effective beginning exercise program using body-weight movements and only takes about 7 minutes to complete. It is a brief, 1-page PDF document we can print and use. PLEASE CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE BEGINNING ANY NEW EXERCISE PROGRAM.
Cardio before or after strength training? Well … depends on your goals.
Many opportunities exist to get the required physical activity we need for healthful living. Gym, exercise machines, and weights are not necessary. It is all about movement. Just move. PLEASE CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE STARTING ANY EXERCISE PROGRAM.
