Here is your Wednesday Workout Exercise:

Pick Up Sticks

 Pick Up Sticks

What you'll need:
 A mat

Targets: Abs, butt, hips, and quads

  • Stand with feet hip-width apart, arms by sides.
  • Lunge forward with right leg, bending right knee 90 degrees, left leg extended behind you, and reach right hand to ground beside right foot.
  • Return to start, switch sides and repeat. MAKE IT HARDER: Jump up between lunges and switch legs in midair to alternate sides or take shorter steps and lunge faster.
  • Do 10 reps per leg
This is a zero-equipment, no sneakers required, all energy-boosting cardio workout that tones from head to toe.

Its time to get those legs back into shape for Spring!!!

Eat a post-exercise snack

Ideally, you should have used most of your stored glycogen to finish your workout. You now have a window between 15 minutes and one hour after exercise when your body is at its peak to absorb nutrients (up to four times better than at any other time). You want to eat a small snack during this period that is four parts carbohydrates to one part protein. The high carb content is because your body wants to replenish its glycogen stores as quickly as possible. This will speed up your recovery and make you less sore. A little protein kick starts muscle resynthesis as well. Keep this meal very light, under 300 calories, and it should allow you to recover and keep you from getting hungry until you eat a proper meal, two to three hours later.
