If you're looking for something a bit more challenging, try our Harder to Kill series.Over the course of our Back in the Fight 30-day fitness challenge, we'll be doing quite a bit of calisthenics, body weight exercises and running. We’ll also set foot inside the gym a couple of times to get you familiar with some key weightlifting movements, like back squats, overhead press and deadlifts.Eventually, you’ll want to transition into a workout program that incorporates bodyweight exercises, weightlifting, functional fitness and cardiovascular endurance for your long-term physical fitness. American Grit’s “Harder to Kill” daily workouts are great for that.Some of these workouts will require access to a gym with basic equipment, as we’re going to be introducing you to some weightlifting techniques. Lifting weights gives you better results, faster, and is a proven way of reducing fat and building muscle.Are you ready? Here we go!Every day begins with a warmup and ends with a cooldown stretch. The workouts are all designed to be done in under an hour.
