How do you maintain the body you worked so hard for during the busy times of the year? I call it the nuts and bolts. These are tune up exercises that don’t take much time and can be done in or outside of the gym but give your heart and muscles that boost they need. Its like the homework you had while you were in school or the extra 15 minutes of practice on the piano you added to your regular time to get that extra edge. 15-20 minute blasts of specific targeted exercises make a big difference in maintaining the proportion you need.. To get a list of these “nuts and “bolts’ exercises check out my Jump starter kit on smallsfitness.com.
