5 Pounds to Go

5 Pounds to Go

 

Looking to begin the new year by ditching a few pounds? Use this powerful cardio program to strip body fat in eight weeks with a specific plan to lose 5 pounds.

 

Five pounds doesn’t necessarily seem like a lot of weight, but sometimes those first (or last) 5 pounds are the hardest to lose. For the next eight weeks, do cardio four days per week with a rest day between most workouts.
