Some Sample 30 Minute Workouts

Hopefully you read "How much time to get in shape" or watched the video before coming here.... So lets talk about some sample 30 minute workouts, the 1st is a full body routine, if you have never stepped foot in the gym this is the recommended way to go. If you've been bouncing in and out or just want to try something different the 2nd "split" is recommended. Your training split refers to what you train on specific days, so here we go:

Format is:  
Excercise: 1st set target reps, 2nd set target reps, 3rd set target reps
Max: refers to as many multiple repetitions as you can do.
Super set: Means you will do the exercise and immediately do the next exercise with no rest. 
Triple set: is three consecutive exercises, or 2 super sets.

If you don't understand the lingo here in, hit me up and I will explain it better.
