If you want to mix up your training, a 15-30 minute swim sesh may be just what you’re looking for. Never thought about jumping in a pool before? Consider that everyone from elite level athletes to senior citizens utilizes weekly swimming to maximize their physical potential.
Do you know what a shoulder shrug is? If you just responded by making the classic “I don’t know” gesture (palms up and shoulders lifted up toward your ears), then believe it or not you’ve already got part of the movement down!
Add a circuit training workout to your strength-training routine to help you reach your fitness goals. Circuit training is a workout style that combines resistance and cardiovascular exercises into one workout session for a complete, total-body routine. Instead of performing your aerobic exercises such as walking, rowing and cycling separate from your strengthening exercises such as the bench press, leg press and crunches, you alternate the two modes of training for one, time-saving session. It can be altered, by time or amount of weight, to fit your fitness level and the workout is progressive as your strength and aerobic endurance improve.
