I am pretty fit. I run 20 miles/week and I do strength training for 40 mins 2-3X/week with 15 lb to 25 lb dumbbells. I have been on this regimen for more than a year. And even with this level of fitness I find the #2 suggested workout to be pretty intense for a beginner.
Sit ups for TWO MINUTES? TWICE?? I would have a hard time doing that now. I usually do two sets of 30 pushups in my usual routine, so I wouldn't consider two sets of 25 pushups to be a beginner's level of exercise.
Heck, maybe I'm not in as good a shape as I thought..... :(
