We’re all given 24 hours each day, and sometimes it can be a struggle to make the most of those hours. Creating a consistent exercise routine is one of the best ways to get your body in shape. However, finding your routine can be a struggle. Case in point, I gained about 10 lbs last holiday season and struggled to lose the weight when the new year started. To help lose the weight, my wife and I started experimenting with different routines until we found the one that worked best for us. Now that I’m confident in the routine I wanted to share it with everyone else.

3 sets of the following. The quantity is for you to decide.

Odd Days
