Today is a non-training day, but that doesn't mean it's a day off. I call this an "active rest day." You still have to perform both morning and evening cardio sessions and our 300 twists to ensure that your skin around the midsection maintains its natural collagen secretion to improve its elasticity.

Cardio on active rest days this week is 10 minutes longer per session than on weight-training days, meaning you have an extra 20 minutes in total to accumulate. You aren't expending the calories you would on a training day, so there is no need to worry about doing a little extra cardio so soon into the plan. The focus is on efficiency and quality, not only quantity.

Be sure to target between 70-80 percent of your maximum heart rate during the entire 40-minute cardio sessions. A heart rate monitor can help you gauge this.

Pay particular attention to taking in all of your supplements, meals, and fluid, because you need to apply 100 percentintensity, effort, and strength to power through tomorrow's workout.
