Yes, all of these workouts are mine, I change it up quite a bit. But, check out my top 10 favorites that provide the best results by clicking the picture.
While watching the news this morning, I was reminded of this fact that’s quite simple and applies to most things in life. If you keep doing the same thing everyday, you’re only going to get the same results. This also applies to our bodies in a very big way.
Sure, you love the way your body looks today from your running routine, but why wouldn’t you want it to look even better? More cut? Stronger? More toned? In order for your body to keep changing, your workouts MUST also change. Plus, there’s the benefit of maintaining motivation, beating bordom and staying excited for each workout.
In a nutshell, your body will plateau when it adapts to what you’re asking it to do, so you’ll stop seeing results when you stop challenging it. Variety is the spice of life and confusing your body so that it can’t adapt will produce continuous results. Here’s an example of a week-long workout schedule that you’ll see and feel.
Sunday-Yoga for Strength-This will challenge your strength from head to toe while stretching your entire body out in preparation for the week. There’s also a flexibility workout option included. Check it out here.
Monday-Kickbox FastFix-NEVER MISS A MONDAY; Cardio is almost always a must for Mondays to balance out the extra calories we usually take in over the weekend. Do one or all three 20-minute workouts depending on how much time you have. Check it out here.
Tuesday-Extreme Shed and Shred-Circuit traing must also play a role within your workout routine and this program doesn’t disappoint, it’s fun, challenging and gets your heartbeat up. Check it out here.
