My recommended FE-Life workout for today is an active-rest cardio routine. You will only need running shoes
- Target Muscles: legs, heart
- 1-10 Difficulty Rating: 5.5
- Workout Time: 30 minutes
Ensure that your muscles are warm; I recommend doing the Moji warm-up.
Either on a track, or using Google Maps if you want to use the road, measure out one, three-quarters, one-half, and one-quarter-mile distances. Run one mile, rest for one minute, then run three-quarters of a mile, rest for one minute and so on. Increase your speed each time you do a new run; the quarter-mile stretch should be done at almost a sprint pace.
If you have an injury or joint pain, consider doing a cycling or swimming set of distances instead.
Go for a brisk walk or a casual jog of at least two-miles a few hours before or after the workout.
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.
