The Art of Starting Slow

Let's be real, Helen Mirren is all of us in this quote on how to start a workout regimen

Helen Mirren

“Buy yourself a fabulous workout outfit. Put it on and do four sit-ups and take it off and get in the shower … My thing with exercise is start really easy, just so you only do three sit-ups, you know? Then do four next week and the next week do five. Start really easy.” – People, April 2015

In all honesty, shes not actually far off. It's tempting to decide you're going to start a workout routine, and then go all out for the first few days. The trouble is you burn yourself out! While Helen's plan is probably too slow for most people, it's good to be realistic. If you're just starting out with a workout routine try one of these great workouts for beginners!
