Fitness Tips for 2013

Fitness Tip #101

 

 

 

Did you know that jumping rope is one of the most strenuous cardiovascular workout you can give yourself?  Since it’s impossible to sustain a 30min workout with a jump rope try this instead:

 

 

 

·  Skip rope for three minutes. (A round in boxing is three minutes long.)

 

·  Take a minute off, and do as many crunches as you can.

 

·  Skip rope for another three minutes.

 

·  During the next minute between rounds, do as many push-ups as you can.

 

·  Back to skipping for three minutes

 

·  Do crunches for another minute. Repeat

Fitness Tip #103

 

 

 

Strengthen your cross-body core vector to enhance performance with a medicine-ball twist exercise.  Stand erect, take a hip-width stance and hold a medicine ball between waist and shoulder level with your arms extended in front of you.  Forcefully rotate your torso to move the ball from one side to the other, keeping your core erect and your glutes engaged to help initiate and resist the rotational forces.
