The 3-2-1 workout plan came into existence because of its portable moves and flexibility. Most celebrities are on the move every time and cannot always access the gym. Consequently, they cannot really carry heavy gym equipment or workout with them. For this, they require light portable equipment to carry when on the move. The effectiveness of the 3-2-1 workout plan is revealed in the fit bodies of the celebrities.
The 3-2-1 workout mixes resistance training and cardio into a single workout plan. According to the name, the workout plan goes like, three cardio exercises, two resistance exercises, and one core exercise. The layout of the routine is:
● Cardio exercise 1 and resistance exercise 1- The first cardio exercise is a warmup. It consists of, three-minute light cardio session like jogging, jumping or using the elliptical. The first session of the resistance training should consist of bench presses, squats and shoulder presses.
● Cardio exercise 2 and resistance exercise 2- The second cardio exercise should last 10 minutes. It should alternate between high and low intensity switching every two minutes.

● Cardio exercise 3 and core exercise 1- The third cardio session should be a repeat of the second cardio session. The final set of the 3-2-1 should consist of five core exercise at 30 reps each. Example of core exercises includes, sit-ups, crunches, leg raises and dumbbell side bends.
