Pro Tips Pro

  1. Don't work too hard in the first 5 minute piece. Remember this workout requires patience and discipline.
  2. Break down each piece as a separate challenge to be completed. Approach each one as a stand alone workout - don't think about the next or the last workout.
  3. The 2 minute rest is important - keep moving slowly after each 5 minute piece and have some sips of water after 60 seconds of the rest period.
