I am proud to say I have developed a high quality fitness program and it doesn’t take hours to get you fit! It takes 30 -45 minutes 2 to 3 days a week.
Here are the components
Warm-up: take a 5 – 10 minute walk or jog and perform a few functional movement exercises .
High Intensity Training : 8 minutes, 30 seconds on/ 30 seconds off. This morning we did BURPEES! Very effective and doable! You can jump rope, do mountain climbers, sprint, jumping jacks. etc. JUST GO HARD, ALL OUT FOR THOSE 30 SECONDS! You want to become breathless (anaerobic) , then you have 30 seconds to recover. Repeat 8 times.
Studies show that High Intensity training (I am happy to improve all of those points. How about you?)
- Lowered body fat
- Improved muscle tone
- Firmer skin and fewer wrinkles
- Higher energy levels
- Improved athletic speed and performance
- Boosted sex drive
Strength Training: We usually do 3 sets of strength training in 30 second intervals, Push-ups, DB Rows, Lunges, Squats, Tricep Extension etc.
Core Training: This is the long and lean portion of my program. So effective! Your body has 29 core muscles located mostly in your back, abdomen, and pelvis. This group of muscles provides the foundation for movement throughout your body. It is so important to keep these muscles strong to support your back and improve your balance. I love Foundation Training, created by Dr. Eric Goodman. This training strengthens and stretches your muscles…very time efficient! Love it!
It is also so important to take the best supplements that you can. Take care of your self.
