Fitness Tips for Women – change it up!
  • Workout in threes: weight (in pounds), intensity (the speed) and volume (number of repetitions). Keep your body guessing by changing one variable per workout.
  • Don’t give up on the pullup. Use the plank to build up to a pullup - but don’t give up trying to do a pullup.
  • Row your boat or pedal your bike. Spend 10 minutes getting your energy flowing before you go to muscle building.
  • Short-circuit on your own. Blast fat away by doing a set of push-ups, jumping rope for one minute, then do squats and back to jump rope.
  • Cut out the refined carbs. That means breads, cookies, chocolate, white rice, cereal, honey and anything with corn syrup or sugar.
  • Eat five small meals a day or three meals and two snacks. Eating should be every three hours and don’t eat after 7 p.m.
  • Increase your high-quality protein such as chicken, turkey, low-fat Greek yogurt and salmon.
  • Limit your liquids. If you’re thirsty, drink water. If you need stimulation, drink black coffee. Skip the mojitos, sodas and caramel non-fat macchiatos.
