Tips to keep in mind for your workouts:
Before we get going, let’s go over a few tips to help you get the most out of your workouts.
Tip #1: Warm-Up
Some of the workouts in the 7-Day Workout Plan include a warm-up. When a workout does not include a warm-up, jog in place or do jumping jacks for a minute or two to get the blood flowing.
Better yet, grab a free printable page of four 5-Minute Warm-Ups you can use to ensure you warm-up properly for your workouts.
Tip #2: Put in the effort
Give it your all when you workout. Not 80%, not 90%, but give it a full 100% effort or more. What you get out of your workouts is what you put in. So if you want to build lean muscles or drop the weight, you need to work for it.
If you need to take a break, try not to stop. Instead take a few seconds to move a little slower, but keep moving. Then pick the intensity right back up again.
Tip #3: Move and breath right
Be mindful of your breathing and don’t hold your breath. Holding in your breath can raise your blood pressure and lead to dizziness.
Also, focus on doing each movement with proper form to prevent injury. For a reference of common exercises and movements, click here: How-To Guide for Exercises and Movements For Your Workouts.
Tip #4: Sweat to some tunes
Upbeat music helps keep you motivated and helps get you through even the most strenuous workouts. So go to Summer 2017 Workout Songs Playlist for tunes to help you crush your workouts!
Tip #5: Make time for active recovery
It’s important to give your body time to recover. That’s why active rest days are included in this 7-Day Workout Plan, so make sure to take those active rest days.
Notice how the word active is in bold? That’s because it’s not a “sit on the couch” kind of rest day. It’s a day to do something that gets you moving, although not as intensely as you would during the workouts in the 7-Day Workout Plan. But the activity should be something that raises your heart rate for 30 minutes.[clickToTweet tweet=”Looking for quick workouts you can do at home no matter what your fitness level is and in 30 minutes or less a day?

Tip #7: Stretch
At the end of each workout in the 7-Day Workout Plan, take a few minutes to stretch. An ideal time to stretch is right after you workout, while your muscles are still warm, so it’s best not to put it off. Plus, if you do it then, you’re less likely to skip stretching that day.
Try using foam rollers in your stretching routine. Rolling out with these babies is like giving your muscles a mini-massage.
Tip #8: Refuel
Follow each workout with healthy protein and healthy carbs to replenish depleted energy. Ideally you want to do this within 20 to 30 minutes after you finish your workout. For a list of our favorite protein powders, check out these Fitness Resources.
Tip #9: Remember this important tip
I saved the best tip for last. HAVE FUN!
You’re more likely to stick with an exercise routine if you enjoy it. So make sure to keep a positive attitude throughout your workout and it’ll go by sooner than you know it.
