Step. Tread. Repeat.

If you’re heard it once, you’ve heard it a million times, “Never skip a Monday.”

Agreed.

Not only should you never skip, but you should make the most of your first workout of the (work) week. Personally, I always take Mondays to do a total body HIIT workout to shed the weekend’s sins and start fresh. Jumpstart your metabolism with this interval workout. Your rest is the time it takes you to get from the treadmill to the stepmill…but you better not dog it.
