Completed Mini-Challenges

Weeks 1 to 3

30x3, 20x2

Guidelines:
If you aren't already exercising regularly, take these two weeks to start. Take at least 30 minutes a day three times a week to do aerobic exercise (cardio), and 20 minutes a day two times a week for strength training. If you're already active, add one more session of cardio a week and one more session of strength training (unless you already train every major muscle group every two days)
