Yes, you read the title right! I'm going to share with you my new fitness focus for November:
quick endurance circuit training
Let's break it down:
- QUICK: Only 30 minutes out of your day, 2 times per week
- ENDURANCE: These workouts boast high reps with moderate weight for muscle endurance and...
- CIRCUITS: Circuit training itself brings cardio into your weight workout so it will provide you with an endurance double-whammy
*BONUS: The constant movement of this workout and its engagement of large muscle groups can boost your anaerobic capacity, too! What's anaerobic? It is a certain process that your body uses during exercise for quick fast movements (example: 100 yard dash). Contrast this with aerobic exercise that is more like a 1-mile run.
Please consult with your doctor before starting any exercise regimen, particularly if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, lung disease, or other chronic conditions. Additionally, the advice I provide here is not the same as individualized exercise planning from a one-on-one personal trainer.
Do you ever get tired of the same ol' cardio regimen? I know I do. I hope this helps mix things up for your holiday season.
