WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: Strength, Cardio, Core

WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: Strength, Cardio, Core

This workout will take you through a strength exercise for the whole body, then a cardio exercise to get your heart rate up, and then core exercise to strengthen and stabilize.  The suggested time is 40 seconds on and 20 seconds off, with a full minute rest between circuits which will take you to a 20 minute workout.  Double it and you are looking at a full hard core 40 minute workout.  Or if 40 seconds is too long for you, take it down to 30 seconds on and 15 off.

WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: Thanksgiving Morning Burn

WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: Thanksgiving Morning Burn

My best advice on  Thanksgiving is to get out and be active, but knowing that many people eat way too much and give into the tryptophan coma, here's a workout you can start your day off to hopefully offset at least some of your meal! This workout will get your heart pumping and the weight training will keep you burning calories for hours to come after your workout.  Push yourself a little harder and you'll be thanking me later!

The workout consists of tabata rounds with 45 seconds on, and 15 seconds off.

WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: Isometric Strengthening Workout

WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: Isometric Strengthening Workout

Isometric muscle contractions happen when the muscle fires up but there is no movement.  In other words, there is no lengthening or shortening of the muscle during the exercise, rather it is static.  While it might sound easy, these types of exercises will leave your muscles screaming!!  These are great exercises to be used during rehabilitation from an injury or for people with joint pain or arthritis, however, they are also a great change up for anyone's normal routine.
