This magazine is a great little quick guide. It will be on displays until May 18, 2010, so pick one up the next time you’re in the grocery checkout aisle.
Now, I don’t believe you need to buy everything you can that says “The Biggest Loser” on it just because it’s from the show. After all, they have professional marketers on their side. But, they do have some great tips to help you on your way. I especially liked this issue because it gives you snack ideas, a risk quiz to test your health, and some recipes that sound delicious!
But my favorite part about this issue is that it has a pictoral guide to a “Beginner Circuit Routine.” If you’re not familiar with the term “circuit,” it just means you’re doing multiple exercises in a short amount of time. Often, they’re set up in a circle around a gym. I went to a circuit training class a couple times and the one I went to did 10 exercises for 3 minutes each, alternating between cardio and strength training. The one in this magazine gives you 3 upper body exercises, 3 core exercises, and 3 lower body exercises.
Then it gives you a pictoral guide to the “Advanced Circuit Routine,” again 3 upper body exercises, 3 core exercises, and 3 lower body exercises. It also provides a pictoral “Stretch Routine” with 12 great stretches.
It ends with some simple, delicious looking meals, and a top 10 foods to buy at the grocery store:
- steel-cut oats
- fat-free greek yogurt
- pork tenderloin
