Besides improving your quality of life and lowering the risk of major health issues, working your body will help you look fabulous and toned. Here are some tips for getting the most out of your workouts.
- Focus on your total body, not just certain areas where you want to look better. Circuit training is a great way to do this. Work different body sections individually and once the circuit is complete, start all over again.
- Work your core. Don’t forget that your back is part of your core . In addition to those crunches, back strengthening exercises are a must in every workout.
- Stretch before and after. Foam rolling before your routine will help give you better performance. After you are finished, stretch each muscle group and hold the stretch for at least 30 seconds.
- Add cardio. A great way to do this is to mix in some short interval bursts throughout the workouts with protocols like Tabata.
Finally, make sure you leave a couple days in the week for rest. Your body needs time to repair and rebuild.
