    Bad-Lister Boxing:

    Made the bad list again this year? Alternate speed boxing for 30 seconds with fast feet for 5 min everyday.

    Make the Good List!!

    • Do all of these exercises as a circuit.
    • Move from one to the next for 3-4 sets of 15 repetitions.
    • Running in place and bad-lister boxing for 30-45 seconds during that portion of the workout.

    *Remember to always check with your physician prior to beginning an exercise program. Warm up by light walking or jogging around the house or in place for 10 minutes, stretch through your major muscle groups holding each for 20 seconds. Keep your belly button pulling tight toward your back and spine in neutral position.  Exhale through the contraction and inhale on extension.  If that becomes confusing just remember to breathe. Cool down by walking or jogging, bringing your heart rate near resting rate for about 10 minutes. Again, stretch major muscle groups holding each 30 seconds for 3 sets.  If an exercise is too difficult, causes pain, discomfort or is confusing discontinue. Check in with me if you have any questions.
