Beginning a new workout regimen does not need to be elaborate.
Those who are making the decision to begin a new exercise program don’t have to be overwhelmed with what exercise to start with. Locke & Graber (2008) found that performing simple tasks such as doing 100 push-ups throughout the course of the morning or 100 jumping jacks before lunch yielded positive fitness increases from previously sedentary individuals. Therefore, if you want to increase your fitness levels, your own body weight and internal effort may be your best ally.
