Ah the epic battle of working out. When life gets busy, it’s easy to put working out at the bottom of the list. Many people think that if they don’t have a solid hour to set aside for a good workout, then it’s completely pointless. FALSE! While long workouts are certainly beneficial, they are not always necessary. Sometimes, you can get a greater fat burn in a quick 30 minute workout! “How” you may ask? Keep on reading…..
While doing the same workout over and over may be healthy for you, eventually, you will stop seeing results. If you want a toned body, you’ve got to try new workouts and change up your routine. Long workouts are great, especially for cardio. For the greatest results, boost your heart rate up by walking for 3 minutes and running for 5. That 3 minutes will give you a nice little rest, while the 5 minute run will force your heart rate to go up faster than a standard jog… burning more calories. For on-the-go days, a quick work out can give you the same results. The only catch? You’ve got to give it your all! Look up HIIT circuits (high intensity interval training). This is a mix between body weight training and cardio. On these days you can choose between arms, legs, abs, or a full body workout. If done properly, you can burn a crazy amount of calories! You also get the benefit of after-burn (burning calories once you’re done working out).
All in all, it’s important to incorporate both into your weekly workouts. Keep your body on top of its game by switching things up!
