Completed Mini-Challenges

Weeks 1 to 2

Do 3 cardio workout a week

Guidelines:
Do all your cardio workouts for at least 20 min at a time. Brisk walking, incline walking, jogging/running, elliptical machine, stair-master, cross-training or an aerobic class counts. Make sure you sweat at the end and your heart rate goes up. For begginers do a steady state cardio. Steady state cardio is where the speed, resistance and incline of your workout doesnt change. Do at least one interval cardio workout if you are more advanced.
