Hello! Welcome to Brides Made Fit podcast, I am your host, Jennifer DiDonato and this is episode number 23. So thanks so much for joining us. Brides Made Fit is an ordinary choice in only in-home personal training service for wives to be and Brides Made Fit podcast is everyone's source for heath and fitness information and entertainment. So thank you so much for joining us today. Once again, I just want to thank everyone out there who has been sending us e-mails and comments. We have our videos pretty much up on a majority of all of video hosts and websites out there. So we always get a lot of comments on those too along with e-mails that comes to me. So this episode is inspired you, the viewers out there. Well, one of the viewer particular e-mails me and she had a particular question about being a beginner workout. So that's why today's workout is going to be the perfect workout for the beginner. I just want to read what she wrote in a nutshell. Her name is Dona and Dona writes, "I am considerably over-weight and I have been watching your podcast but they seem like exercises that I should do after I loose the weight. Now if I don't have much time to dedicate to working out, should I be focusing on cardio until I loose the weight?" Dona, I am going to answer your question and that would be, "No, you don't want to only focus on cardio. You want to make sure that you are doing your cardio along with watching your nutrient, being consistent at all of those, and three, you want to make sure that you are incorporating in the strength training but you want to do it properly because you are a beginner." So we are going to get started but first before we get started on the movements, I just want to point out what we are going to be doing today. This is going to be like a circus style training. For beginners who are working out, you could be or have been away from working out for let's say, 10 or 20 years, or you are just starting up here and you haven't even touched away. What's really important is that we do want you to get a good workout but we also want to make sure not injuring yourself because a big deterrent for people starting a program is that they know, "Well Jesus, while I do those weights, I am going to be so sore the next day." Then they feel like it's such a big let out and they feel like they can't do it but yes, you can do it. You just to make sure you are doing it right and doing it smart. So then you can carry it on and have it become a part of your lifestyle and not just be like, "Oh! That's such a drag. Every time I workout, it's sore." So the key thing here is this is going to be circus style training where we are doing movements back to back. Then also, there is going to be total body movement to keep the heart rate up because elevated heart rate means we are burning more calories and that means we are going to burn more fat. Then also, you want to use lighter weights, not easy weights but lighter weights in higher repetition. So we are going to do about 20 repetitions of these movements because the more you are doing that, you are strengthening up your joints and your muscles. So then later on as your program progresses, then you can start with the heavier weights and really kicking into gear with the people who have been doing it for a longer or acquire more conditions. So let's start with the first movement. I want you to get a set of dumbbells. I want it to dumbbells that are challenging, when you lift them, but I don't want them to be -- you can only do five of them and then they are just killing you. So I want you to pick up weights, maybe you will need 3 pounds, 5 pounds, even 10 pounds, depending on health condition you are. We are going to do a movement which is a single leg step-up to bicep curl. So you can use a step at home, you can use your porch, you could use a stool, anything that you can use that can elevate you up on to a surface and then using the dumbbells for the bicep curl. The reason why we
