Quality Over Quantity

When I tell people I exercise about 20 minutes a week,  I am often met with looks of skepticism.  As I have said time and time again, less is more.  It’s all about quality NOT quantity.

Here is my workout from last week.  I have been working out 3 times a week and have split up my workouts as follows:

DAY ONE:  Multi-Joint Exercises

DAY TWO:  Spinal Exercises

DAY THREE:  Single- Joint Exercises

I love doing Spinal Exercises on DAY TWO because in addition to strengthening and creating traction for my spine, it gives me some much needed extra rest between my Multi-Joint and Single-Joint workouts.
