Movement

What should be incorporated into my workout routine?

Whether you’re a novice taking the first steps toward fitness…

Or an exercise fanatic hoping to optimize your results…

A well-rounded fitness training program is essential.

Soooo with that being said, you may want to consider adding more variety to your workout routine.

Here’s some inspiration:

Aerobic Fitness

Examples of aerobic exercises include walking, jogging, running, biking, hiking, climbing, spinning, cardio machines, dancing, water sports and various MMA training regimes.

Strength Training

Strength training is the process of exercising with progressively heavier resistance for the purpose of strengthening the musculoskeletal system.

It is also referred to as weight lifting, weight training, body sculpting, toning, bodybuilding, and resistance training.

Core Exercises

Core exercises are those that use your trunk without support, like push-ups, sit-ups, and abdominal crunches.

These exercises strengthen and train your lower back, hips, abdomen and pelvis to work together for better balance and stability.

Balance Training

Balance training refers to a type of training that focuses on the ability to maintain proper posture over the body’s base of support.

Stability Training

Stability training refers to performing exercises while on an unstable surface with the goal of activating stabilizers and trunk muscles that may be neglected with other forms of training.

Flexibility Training

Flexibility training includes stretching exercises for the purpose of increasing one’s range of motion.

Remember: prior to training, a warm up should be performed at a low intensity for 5-10 minutes.

This increases the temperature of the muscles and decreases the risk of injury.

Whether you create your own fitness training program or enlist the help of a personal trainer, your overall workout routine should, in my opinion, include several elements.

Although it isn’t necessary to fit each of these elements into every fitness session…

Factoring them into your regular routine can help you promote fitness for life!
