Spring Into Shape For Summer – Week Twelve

May 21, 2018

You did it! Can you believe we’re at Week 12?! But remember with fitness, you can’t start and stop.  In order to maintain results and health and fitness benefits, it’s a forever thing!

Change Things Up:

This week, change around the sequence or order that you are performing your exercises. For example, if you always do your cardio first, this week, do it after your muscle conditioning. Or if you do cardio and muscle conditioning on alternate days, this week try doing both cardio and muscle on the same day. If you have been doing your resistance exercises in the following order; Legs, Upper Body, Core – this week, try doing all your leg exercises first, then your upper body exercises next and finish with your core. By altering your workout sequence, the stimulus to your muscles will be very different and it will feel like a completely different workout.

We’re honing in on the finish line of our Spring into Shape for Summer Program. But remember with fitness there is NEVER a finish line.  Two weeks left to take everything to the next level.  And just as the quote says above – taking the time to do the things necessary to be your best, says a lot about you as a person!  So stick with it no matter what!

Cardio

This week, try hill training.  It will develop your strength, power and overall fitness.  If part of your program includes walking, running, or cycling, find a short hill (about 100 meters long) and perform 5-10 hill repeats once this week.
