Check your steps - week 3

This is the third week of your ACTIVE BODY program. How are you doing? Your goals are:

To do resistance exercise that builds and preserves muscle and makes you look toned three times a week for 8 minutes.

To do ‘cardio’ or aerobic exercise that gets your heart rate up for 30 minutes three times a week, or 1.5 hours a week

Or achieve the same by increasing your daily steps by 10-20% – we’re aiming for 14% or 2% increase a day.

On your COGNITION Dashboard tick the days you do resistance exercise and enter the steps you do each day, or every other day if you’re going for three sessions of cardio exercise a week.

Please complete this and work out your plan for Week 4. If you didn’t manage to get it together in Week 3 don’t despair. Go for it in week 4. The most important thing is to keep steadily increasing your daily activity until being more active becomes a habit. At the end of week 4 you’ll see how’ve you’ve improved your activity over the month.
