Split Workout Tips

Yesterday was our last day of warm weather, now its back to gloom and cold. I am such a person ruled by the sun, just like my mom. (even though my zodiac says the moon... still). I do love the moon since it sometimes can be so big, low and full but I need sun!

If you really want BIG results in your workout, do splits. Do a workout in the morning and a workout at night. The best way for me is to do my strength training in the morning and cardio at lunch/or after work.

The reason is I am a morning person (again like mom) and I need my focus for my weights as cardio is a breeze for me. I always feel the energy once I get started. But if you want a tip on cardio use sugar free full size Altoids.

Then put them in your jawline and breathe in the mint, it makes you come alive. I have done this for years as a runner and it works. Something about peppermint and the brain.

ST or Cardio when your at your best, do the one you least like or easiest last
Use Altoids
If you have time for a walk during the day 20 minutes really helps
Steps available use them and do them twice, who cares what people think. (I always tell people I forgot something, and really I have my workout lol)
