The new year is always flooded with resolutions, goals and hope for a more productive year, physically, personally and professionally.
Almost always at the top of the list for many people is instituting some sort of weight management or weight loss system. one way to make those hopes a reality is to gather reliable information that will help you stay on track throughout the year.
It doesn’t matter if you’re getting healthy tips from reading a fitness book or an online article like this one, just as long as you’re doing something. The worst thing that you can ever do is quit on yourself this year.
But how can you stay on task for an entire year when you’re so busy with kids, school, career and the occasional vacation. Well, here’s two exercises that will help make your new year’s resolutions a reality. It requires only a pair of resistance band, and takes less than 15-minutes to complete eack workout. The workouts are short, but they are highly effective against fat.
Most gym goers, including me used to jump into an 8 week workout routine found on any website or fitness magazine. However, many such workouts are either way too advanced for the average person or it simply does not burn enough calories to make any real changes to your body.
“Beginners should never mirror a workout found on a fitness magazine unless it specifically states that the workout program is for beginners.
Resistance bands works well for both beginners and advance individuals. The reason why is because unlike other workout devices, you can change the intensity of the movement by simply changing your hold on the bands.
Beginners should perform the exercises below one time through, once per week. For the advanced individuals, execute the exercise 3 times through 2-3 times per week.
Circuit training with resistance bands (3 or more exercises required)
Circuit training with resistance bands is a great way to combine strength training and cardio all at once when you’re short on time. Traditionally, the rest period between exercises in this workout is very little if any, often with rapid movement from exercise to exercise. Choose three exercise that you can do back to back with the bands like a lunge, shoulder press, and dead lift.Execute each exercise for 8-10 reps than move to the next exercise until you complete the entire set.
Superset training with resistance bands (no more than 2 resistance band exercises required)
Superset workouts involves doing back to back exercises with no rest between sets. Basically, this type of workout maximizes training intensity and allows you to work several different aspects of the muscle at the same time. For best results, train opposing muscle groups first. This approach to training allows one muscle group to recover while the opposing muscle group is working.
