Four Week Lean Body Workout

One of the easiest ways to get started on a muscle building routine at the gym or at home is to have a plan.  The following plan is an easy three day plan that will hit all of your major muscle groups.  The weight you should choose is one that you can safely lift, but at the same time struggle to get to the last rep.  You want to really have to try to get to that twelfth rep and if you don’t make it, that’s okay!   In addition to this plan you should do at least 12-15 minutes of HIIT workouts between your strength training days.  One option is as follows: Monday: Strength, Tuesday: HIIT, Wednesday: Rest, Thursday: Strength, Friday: HIIT, Saturday: Strength, Sunday Rest Also, don’t worry about becoming bulky or gaining too much muscle!  It is not going to happen.  What you will see is the “toned” defined look that you are craving with some added feminine curves.  This complete workout can be done at a gym, or at home with your hiit sandbag or dumbbells with the exception of the Leg Day.  There are two options included for legs; one at a gym and one for at home.
