05/16/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal : Monday

There are many studies that show that interval training increases your best cardio capability. 

We also understand that when you do strength training, you need to work multiple body parts.  If you are working your glutes, add a shoulder press when you rise to the start position.   If you are doing a push up, raise your back leg 18 inches off the ground to work your glutes and leg.  If you are doing biceps, try doing the move while balancing on one leg.  That kicks in your core and balance while working your biceps.

When doing cardio, try sprints instead of a steady pace for twice the amount of time.  The rise and fall of your heart rate, burns calories faster!  Try a Spinning class for a great interval training opportunity.

Be creative.  The sky is the limit.  Have fun and keep it fresh.
