Hopefully you got plenty of rest after your legs and abs workout.
If you're still experiencing some muscle soreness, be sure to stretch after today's 26-30 minute cardio workout. Consider taking a hot bath to help you loosen up - that's one of the best ways to reduce any leftover tension in the muscle tissues.

The Formula For Amazing Workouts
I want to talk about three things that you should do in order to make the most of your workouts:
1 Proper Breathing
Breathe in as you lower the weight, and exhale as you lift it. This will enable you to generate the best level of force as you progress through the workout.
For example, when squatting, you would breathe in deeply as you descend into the squat position, and then exhale as you come back up.
If you are bench pressing, you would breathe in as you lower the bar to your chest, then exhale as you push it back up.
2 Exercise Form
Unless you are using correct technique during your exercises, you will not see the benefits you're looking for.
Learn how to perform the exercises correctly, and then use good form. Don't try to handle so much weight that your form gets sloppy.
Good form is also an excellent way to prevent injuries.
If you focus on what your muscles are feeling when you exercise them, you can maximize your workouts.
You'll be able to perform your reps correctly and with more energy, which can allow you to do more reps on any given set.
Focusing also helps to avoid injury.
Keep those 3 quick tips in mind when you are working out. You want to be sure that you're making the most out of each workout you do so that you can get the results you're after.
