Workouts To Get Lean And Fit
Start by jogging at a low speed. You can run on a trail, on the road, or on a treadmill. When your body gets warmed up, start running at a higher speed, but do not sprint. Depending on your fitness and endurance levels, you can slow down or stop after running for 1-2 minutes. Catch your breath and then start running again.
