MadeFitTV has for everyone so much of health and fitness information, and entertainment, and whatsoever, fit bodies don't just happen, they are made. So let's get started, let's make it now. So I want to say Happy New Year to everyone. This episode is awesome, this Episode is 79, and we are doing the Starter Workouts for Beginners Part II. Okay, and we did a starter workout back when it was brides madefit video blog, episode 23. It still has a lot of awesome moments on there, because I wanted introduce people to exercising, if you haven't really done it before. So you know, I just want to tell everyone out there who has been working out for long time, stick with it, do this workout with us, we'll see what you can do, and may be what you can improve on, because some of these movements may be a little bit beginner for you if you have been exercising for a long time, and may be you are more than a athlete. But you will be surprised, you know, just add a little bit of weight, and you can make the movement a lot more challenging, and then may be something new that you have never done before, so try it out. But for you beginners out there, I just wanted to do this episode for you, because it is something that will help kind of jumpstart your new year resolution, new life resolution, and get a really awesome workout that you can do at home. So number one, I am going to just pick these up just to show you, I want you all to get dumbbells, okay? I know that a lot of times I don't want you usually using a lot of equipments, but standard, you should at least have a pair of 10 pound dumbbells in your house. If you are a little stronger, if you are a guy, may be 300 pounds, 6 feet tall, full of muscle, at least have a set of 20 pounders in your house, at least. Just have it, girls, 10 pounds, not 5, if you already have a 5, it's awesome. We get 10 pounders, because even if they are too heavy, you can use one of these, you know, equaling 5 pounds on each arm for the movements that we are going to do today okay? Work for any movements for that matter. So lets get started, first movement, we are going to use is going to be without the dumbbells, it's going to be core. Now I am going to be doing this with you, so I am going to tell you when to pause the tape, --- pause the podcast. You are going to be doing three sets of these, okay, and you are going to rest for 60 seconds to 90 seconds in between, so get your watches out, and I am going to tell you when to pause it, and you are going to be resting and doing them along with me when you watch this. Okay, number one, it's going to be for the core, kind of all around body, this is going to be called the full plank. So I am going to have you get on your hands, and your toes, okay, I want you to make sure that you are not dipping your stomach down your butts are not up. I want your body to be nice and leveled, you want to tuck your abs in, and ready, we are going to hold this for 30 seconds, and go. Okay, so your hold get in nice and tight, abs tight, back is tight, and you're going to feel in the arms. Now if this movement is a little too advanced for you, you can go ahead and come down on your forearms, or just not even hold it for 30 seconds, only hold it for 15 or 20 seconds, but I still want you to finish out those 15-20 seconds. We've got 10 seconds left in this one, so keep holding, keep the abs tight, if you are dipping down, bring those hips back up. I want you to keep it nice and tight, like you have a bottle of water on your back you don't want it to break. Alright, that was 30 second, good job. Now if you want to mix it up, you can even bring your knees alternating for 30 seconds. So go ahead, and I want you to pause the tape, I want you to rest for one minute, and I want you to do it again. Okay, next movement, we are going to do,
