You want to lose a size in 14 days without being on a severe diet and quitting your portion of chocolate or cookies?
Here is a solid workout plan that promises you to lose a size in 2 weeks, if you stick to it, of course.
Start at the beginning of the week with plan A, followed by power walks. The next day do the plan B, followed by running.
In week two, do the “make it harder” exercises and alternate speeds while running. Good luck!
