I'm just going to shed light on some moves you might have forgotten about or didn't realize would benefit you as much as they could.
Don't let the number on the scale get you down
- Body Weight Workouts- People think that the only way you are going to get results is by going to a gym with a ton of equipment. That is really not the case. I have trained various women from the comforts of their own home and have seen amazing results. So don't use the lack of money for a gym as an excuse. Below is a great living room workout you can do from the comfort of your own home.
2. Plank- This is one of my favorite moves that you can do anywhere. It is great for those who are in excellent shape or those just starting out. You can hold it anywhere from 20 seconds- 1 minute. This move is wonderful to do right away in the morning to keep your abs in nice and tight if that is not in your morning routine it will work anytime throughout the day.
3. Tabata Training- Tabata training is all about burning those calories after the fact. Tabata was found to be effective at increasing ones cardio respiratory system just as much as running 6 miles daily. The great part about tabata is it is only 4 minutes long. The work part is 20 seconds and the rest part is 10 seconds. You will repeat either 1-4 moves depending on how difficult you would like the workout to be. Below are some great tabata workouts you can give a try this week!
1. Jumping Jacks
3. Squat Jumps
4. Mountain Climbers
4. Interval Workouts- When working out you need to change up your pace. You will start slow & then go fast, or slowly build speed up from a slower pace, then medium, to a full out sprint. When doing an interval workout you can do this via cardio, or weight lifting. As far as intervals go you can range them from 30 seconds to 3 minutes. Depending on how hard you want to push yourself you can vary how long you run for or do the lifting routine for. Just make sure you get your rest into your routine. Rest is typically 30 sec.-1 minute. Below are interval times you can choose to use in your workout routine.
Work / Rest
3 Minutes / 1 Minute
2 Minute/ 30 Seconds
1 Minute / 20-30 Seconds
30 Seconds / 10-15 Seconds
