A slow-paced total body workout routine for beginner’s is exactly what you need to begin your new exercise habit on the right foot. When you are first beginning a workout routine or getting back into your old fitness habits, you should start slow. Starting slow will not only help you best adapt to the new increase in your exercise intensity, but will also help you to prevent injury. Of course, an injury can set you back a bit and may further discourage you.

So take it slow. Learn a few exercises that I have posted below. Perfect the technique and take it from there. Believe me, there are many other, more advanced workout routines on Exercise Menu that you can advance to when you are ready 🙂
