Day 46: Don't Neglect Your Feet!

It's easy to take your feet for granted until something goes wrong. There are about nineteen basic muscles in the feet, of which eighteen are attached to the toes. When you wear shoes most of the day, your feet can't move freely. When that happens, they can become weak and vulnerable. Like the rest of your body, your feet need exercise to stay in shape. So, take your shoes off and get started with these simple exercises!

Day 42: Love Handles Be Gone!

The love handle area along your sides above your waist is a tough area to target. Fitness experts say that unless you play tennis, the internal and external obliques - the two muscle pairs that help you twist and turn - are largely unused in daily life. The result? Love handles. These two exercises will help you tighten your waist and get you on your way to a smooth silhouette. To see results, do each exercise two or three days a week, taking a day of rest between workouts.
