Circuit Training Workout
The best thing about circuit training is that it’s very hard to get bored with it. This workout is tough but moves at a lightning pace and challenges all the muscles in your body. A great fat burner, this workout is brilliant if you find that you aren’t pushing yourself at the gym or get fed up of repeating the same exercises.
Building muscle is extremely important when you’re shaping up. By building muscle you can even burn calories while resting. This doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll bulk up. Resistance training is all about strength, and investing time in your muscles will have lots of positive effects, such as decreasing your risk of osteoporosis, burning fat, and improving your athletic performance if you play sports. Give yourself a helping hand this year by adding a little muscle resistance training to your weekly workouts.
Adding in a routine that is fun and expends energy gives you the chance to end your week of exercise on a high. Get pumped up with this fun and energetic workout video that will burn fat and help polish those dance floor moves for when you hit the town of a Friday night.
If you want to feel the burn but don’t fancy the high-impact nature of cardio and weights, yoga is an ideal alternative. Widely practiced as a form of exercise that concentrates on enhancing your strength and flexibility, yoga offers the added advantage of being meditative. It can help with stress, your posture and general sense of wellbeing, a great way to get your mind in as good a shape as your body.
Get in shape by trying out these fabulous workouts. Mix them up so you can feel fantastically fit by the time your holidays roll around this year.
