Spring workout


It’s no newsflash: To create a body that moves energetically and without pain or stiffness AND looks great takes work.

What is new; to understand how to stage your workout program. It doesn’t take skill to just pick up a weight and start moving it. But it does take skill to move it in such a way that it helps you  achieve your goal objective. And for that, you may need knowledge about how to move that weight properly. A dysfunctional movement pattern doesn’t move you closer to your goal. Keep this in mind when starting an exercise program.

Spring weather is around the corner on the East Coast. The birds are chirping at 5:15 am and the days are getting warmer (like this past weekend). You are feeling to get out and about and ready to start being active.

Shorts are out, leaves and buds are peeking out, flip flops are on…there’s a new beginning in the air; all at once at the same time. It is no wonder my inquiries for diet programs and workout sessions increase. The perfect butt, the perfect arms, shoulders, and a smaller midsection should be accomplished within 4 weeks. Doable? Yes, depending at which stage you are starting (250 lbs or 116 lbs).

If you are in shape, have been regularly working out throughout the winter months and need to change your program to reach warm-weather goals, here is a approach that does not only burn the greatest number of calories but the highest amount of fat overall. You can do this program in one 20-minute session by moving from one exercise to the next without rest. When you feel comfortable after the first round, complete a second or perhaps a third round. Use a jump rope and free weights. If you can’t jump rope, simply imitate the motion without the jump rope.
