Welcome to February—the month where weight loss and fitness resolutions go to die. (No, seriously—家居卖场纷纷触电 颓势中再寻生机 because that's the day that most people just completely give up on their fitness resolutions.) Here's the good news: We've come up with a 21-day shape up workout plan that you'll love so much, you won't wanna ditch it.
Here's how it works. Each week, you'll do six workouts (none of them last more than about half an hour!):
-Two total-body toning routines
-Two fat-blasting interval workouts
-Two easy recovery sessions

The research also suggests there maybe a value in finding a job through an internship. Interns who accepted a job offer had higher salaries than those who had received an offer but refused it. Those interns who did not receive an offer had lower salaries still. The gap between these groups had increased three years after graduation.
