We hear you — it’s hard to start. And the last thing you want to do is go too hard, too fast. There’s a risk of injury, and, more importantly, discouragement. We commend you on starting anew, and we’re here to help.Below, we’ve crafted an effective 20-minute workout for beginners. It starts with a cardio warmup followed by three sets of strength exercises for a well-rounded, full-body routine.Aim to do the whole sequence two times per week to start. After a few weeks, up the ante with a longer routine, more weight, or both.

To perform, simultaneously step your right leg out and, with your right arm bent at a 45-degree angle, bring your right hand above your head. Return to the start and repeat on the left side. Go as fast as you can while maintaining good form.
