If you’re one of the many people who are feeling stuck in a rut with your current workout regimen, the good news is… THERE’S HOPE!
You might just need to mix it up, and I can help! 🙂
Use these 3 tips to elevate your routine to the next level:
1. Be Unstable: Use your entire body, and target your core, by performing exercises that engage stabilizing muscles. To do this use a stability ball, a balance board, a balance disk, or you could simply stand on one leg.
*Try this exercise – plank on stability ball . Hold for 1 minute!
2. Add Resistance: The more resistance that you incorporate with your routine translates into higher intensity and more calories burned. Some ideas for adding resistance include: carrying dumbbells while doing lunges, wearing a weighted vest while walking, and using resistance bands for upper and lower body exercises at home or when you travel.
*Try this exercise – squat with resistance band. Perform 20 repetitions!
3. Use Intervals: Interval training is an amazing tool for creating short yet effective workouts. Don’t worry, it’s not complicated. Interval training is simply alternating between different short bursts of activity.
*Try this exercise – :30 jogging mountain climbers, then right into :30 jumping jacks!
