Start Slow And Finish Strong.

This Sparked Me!

When I workout in the first 5 minutes i start slow and in the last 5 minutes i push myself to finish strong and not let up on my workout intensity. For example if i go for a 45 minute run, I walk for 5 minutes before i start jogging then the last 5 minutes i sprint.

Don't forget to add on a 2 minute cool down period after your workout.
