Now that summer is sneaking up on us, it can be hard to remember those New Year’s resolutions that we started on in the beginning of the year. It can be overwhelming to get back on the horse and find a new fitness routine, however with the warm weather on its way, it’s most important to prepare for some fun in the sun in our healthy bodies. Here are six different styles of workouts that might work for you and should be considered.
High-Intensity Interval Training
High-Intensity Interval Training(HIIT) is based on sets of different workouts that last for seconds or minutes at a time with short periods of rest in between. This style of workout is optimal because it doesn’t require any equipment and is great for people who are short on time and have very busy schedules, but need to get a sweat on.
One of the more popular methods of working out is HIIT, which stands for High-Intensity Interval Training, is a favored method due to it being convenient for busy schedules and the overall benefits of short bursts of exercise.
It’s been found that in Australia, 50% of adults don’t even make their minimum walking requirement of 2.5 hours of weekly brisk walking, which has some serious impact on their long term health. By integrating HIIT workouts, people get all the movements and exercise that they need and don’t have to spend lengthy amounts of time doing it either. There are several different types of HIIT exercise, and these all include 1, 4, 7 and 10 minute workouts. There are varying movements in these routines that go for different amounts of sets, but overall they have shown to be effective in improving metabolism, muscle strength, and heart health.
So, if you are one of the the many people out there that can’t seem to find the motivation to get into an exercise routine, it might be beneficial to check out a HIIT program. These workouts are short on time, but big on impact and will definitely show results over time.
CrossFit workouts have been popular for some time now, as they are usually done in large groups of people who are motivated and wanting to workout together. This style of fitness workout is best for the type of person who gets bored easily, because with CrossFit each day there is a different thing to work on. There can be weight training, endurance training, rope climbing, and all sorts of other activities. CrossFit is for you if you love to socialize and get a sweat on, but if you like to work alone you might want to try something else first.
Barre Workouts are somewhat of a newer trend, as they often can be compared to a mix of pilates and ballet combined. Don’t be fooled into thinking that they don’t take much energy to do, because at the end of the day they can be quite strenuous and really hard to complete, but won’t leave you winded. If you’re the type of person that needs to feel the burn though, this might not be for you.
The beauty of yoga is that it is both extremely relaxing, as it requires its participants to learn how to breathe deeply as well as build muscles. It is extremely popular with the type of person that likes to get a nice, slow workout in as opposed to something that is fast and consists of high intensity workouts. If you are someone who likes to find their zen while breaking a sweat, power yoga should be at the top of your list to try.
Boot Camp Classes
Let’s face it, it’s not always easy to get to the gym and stay motivated while you’re there. That’s where boot camp classes come in, as they are there to help you keep your eye on the ball and not lose focus on your fitness goals in the process. However, if you’re someone that doesn’t like to have someone yelling at you to get to work, this could be a very frustrating choice of workout.
Cycling is a great outlet for people who have a lot of energy to burn, but no where to bike outdoors. It can be difficult to get started in a cycle class, but once you do so you’ll find it will be one of the best workouts that any place has to offer. Not only that, but it can be fun to take part in a class where everyone is suffering on the same level as you are.
