EXERCISE

The exercise portion of this program also centers on the number five. You exercise five days per week and the workouts are broken out in five minute sections totaling 25 minutes per workout. Keeping the workouts short makes it easier to stay on track and get those workouts in each day.

The book mentions the most overweight countries in the world, and the biggest commonality among them other than calorie intake is a sedentary lifestyle. The focus of being successful on this plan is half about what you eat and half about exercising.

Some of the body parts that you will be focusing on are abs, arms, back and legs. The workouts include cardio, warm ups, cool downs and some strength training to give you optimal results.
