Here are some fitness tips from Pamela that may help your workout!
1. Add an intensity interval to your cardio routine such as alternating between a medium intensity for 2-3 minutes and a high intensity for 1 minute. Continue the interval approach for your entire cardio session.
2. Stretching is an important part of your overall health & fitness program. Stretch after your body is warmed up and hold each stretch for 20-30 seconds without bouncing or movement.
