My recommended FE-Life workout today is a brick. You will need running shoes, a bicycle, and a hill.
- Target Muscles: heart, legs
- 1-10 Difficulty Rating: 7
- Workout Time: one hour plus
Ensure that your muscles are warm; I recommend doing the Moji warm-up.
Run up the hill (alternatively, you can run up a long flight of stairs), then walk back down; rest for thirty seconds. Repeat the sequence nine more times. After finishing the tenth round, go for a moderate five to seven-mile bicycle ride.
To make the workout harder, increase the number of running rounds, and or use a shoulder sandbag to add weight. To make it easier, do fewer rounds.
I post a new workout each day of the week. Clearly, “rest days” are prudent in anyone’s workout schedule. My advice is to select four or five of the workouts I recommend in a week, and do them over four or five days—one workout per day; rest on the other days. I always list the target muscles each routine calls upon. It would be wise to choose workouts that address the entire body over a given week.
