The most important thing to remember is that nothing happens overnight. As long as you stay consistent in the gym / at home, you will see consistent results with your body. Make sure to keep a positive & clear image of what your ideal body will look like a few months from now. Make sure to keep a workout log, download a free one here.

Okay, let's get going. We'll start you out easy, because your body will have to adjust to the extra activity. This will be your first 6 week muscle building / fat burning workout program:
