1. Interval Training. Whether it be walking, running, swimming, bicycling or using your elliptical, add interval training to the physical activity. Rather than maintaining a steady pace, by dividing your workouts at around 2-3 minutes, where you switch from high and low intensity, you are challenging your muscles. Thus, keeping them guessing and on their feet. This is also a great way to boost your metabolism.
2. Push Ups have always been the simple and reliable workout, that helps in strengthening your chest, shoulders and arms. Depending on your experience and strength, however, beginning parallel to the floor, attempting to push of your whole-body weight may not seem so easy. So, begin by pushing off the kitchen island. Slowing as you improve, get lower and lower, using a desk, then a bench. When you graduate to the ground, don’t rush, begin with your knees bent, before you attempt the big leagues.
Something to keep in mind, before you decide to skip Monday’s workout, due to the stressful day you’ve had: Physician Monique Tello often prescribes exercise to her patients as a way to improve their cardiovascular health, weight loss regime, stress management and moodiness. The benefits of exercise are therefore numerous. Specifically, exercise can boost brain function as the increase blood flow provides more oxygen and nutrients to the brain. It also releases hormones that aid in the growth of brain cells. The best workouts however, are those that various parts of the brain, i.e. Co-ordination, rhythm and strategy.
Lately, as one perceives going to the gym as more of a chore rather than a benefit, working out can feel boring. A new fitness trend therefore bringing passion to working out is Aerial Silks. Aerial Silks are a type of workout done by climbing, wrapping around and dropping from a fabric suspended from the ceiling. Not only is it a pleasure to watch, but it provides a full body workout, that aids with strengthening, toning and flexibility of the body. A few celebs that have embraced this workout as part of their fitness regime are; Russian supermodel Natasha Poly and actresses Lena Dunham, Troian Bellisario and Vanessa Hudgens.
