Week 2: Pick Up Your Intensity

You may be a little sore and a little tired, but week 1 was just your warm-up. Week two is where the rubber hits the road and you really start to put in the work. You may not always feel pumped to hit the gym, but your efforts will pay off.

Burn Up to 900 Calories Three Days This Week. Mentore’s fast-paced strength circuit is a brutal undertaking, hitting all your major muscle groups while keeping your heart rate elevated. You may barely be able to finish the series of exercises, but the good news is it only takes 45 minutes to complete.

Do Yoga on Your Rest Days. Those days you aren’t killing yourself with Mentore’s total-body routine, give yourself a break with a 30-minute, muscle-lengthening yoga session. You’ll need it.

Assess Your Post-Workout Foods. What you eat after your workout has the power to maximize muscle protein synthesis and minimize recovery time. Make sure you’re choosing the right snacks.

Make Sure You’re Hydrating Correctly. Staying hydrated (but not too hydrated!) is key to peak performance and faster results. Carry a water bottle with you and make sure you’re sipping regularly.
