Longer Workouts vs. Shorter Workouts

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…..Chelsea Crockett- HIIT

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!    

XOXO,

Kick Belly Fat to the Curb

Sometimes I feel like no matter how much I run, my stubborn belly fat just won’t go away! If you cut out foods that are high in fat and incorporate these tips into your next run, you can kiss that belly fat goodbye!

  1. Mix up your pace: Interval workouts are a surefire way to boost your metabolism. Instead of running at one set pace for your whole workout, alternate between running at a fast pace for about a minute and then running at a slow pace for 2 and a half minutes.images (3)
  2. Turn up the time: Just doing crunches wont wittle your waist away. You have to put the work and the time in! Every 5 minutes of running at a ten minute mile pace burns about 45 calories, so think about that during your next run and it will motivate you to go just a bit longer!
  3. Kick up your knees: One way to strengthen your core is to do one minute intervals where you run with high knees. Concentrate on using your abs rather than your leg muscles and get those knees as high as you can!

I cannot wait to use these tips on my next run! I am so ready to kick belly fat to the curb.

XOXO, Chels
