Teresa’s Fit Moms Workout Routine!
I train shoulders twice a week! I have one leg day, one chest day and one back day. I pick 4 exercises per body part and do 3-4 sets of 10-12 reps with heavy weight.
I love to run! The worst part about running is to start. Give yourself 3 months and you will love it!
Whey protein, fish oil and a multivitamin.
