...HOME & GYM WORKOUT VERSION...
Traveling today & don't have dumbbells? Why not fill up a milk jugs with water or use your & your mother's purse as a substitute ;)
Training Tip of the Day: Active rests... let's talk about them. In case you haven't notice, I'm all about them weights, bout them weights no cardio ((well maybe sometimes lol)) And now we will have that Meghan Trainor song stuck in our heads all day! There are ways to rev up the intensity of a workout without actually changing the workout ((exercises, sets, reps)) without adding extra time! We're all about training smarter not harder! Active rests mean that during your workout, instead of stopping to rest, you remain active, such as by doing light cardio, stretching or anything else that keeps your heart rate slightly elevated. To science geek out on you again.... when we weight train, we feel a "burn" which is a build up of lactic acid produced under an oxygen deficit. By actively resting, this lactic acid can be lowered or buffered by the presence of oxygen brought in through the bloodstream by an additional movement: the light cardio or stretching! Active rests help us burn more calories, increase strength and stamina, and lead to a "feel good" workout with that post-workout high.
Try out active rests with this workout, after you complete 1 minute of the movement, instead of sitting or completely resting, bop up and down on your feel a little bit! Let me know what you think :)
