BURST into Shape and a Chance to Win $400
For many reasons February seems to be a bit of a challenging month when it comes to sticking to our fitness goals.
Cold weather certainly plays it’s part — If you’re somewhere where temperature refuse to peak higher than the low 40s you’re probably more inclined to want to hibernate than anything else.
Yet exercise is one of the best ways to boost your energy and lift your mood.
One of my favorite ways to get my heart pumping and my metabolism revved up is through BURST fitness.
If you’re not familiar with BURST fitness you are going to LOVE it! BURST is a form of HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) with a focus on being explosive. The concept is simple: Alternate a high intensity BURST with a short period of rest and repeat for the duration of your workout. BURST is much more effective than a traditional cardio workout as it incorporates cardio with strength training. You can apply the BURST concept to your favorite activity or find a number of BURST workouts online.
The benefits of BURST are too many to list but one of the reason I love it so much is because you get more from a 20 minute BURST workout than a traditional 1 hour cardio workout. When you’re pressed for time BURST is the way to go.
Here is a sample BURST workout you can enjoy anywhere, at home, your dorm room, in the park. Use this workout to get you started with BURST or create your own with your favorite activity.
