Thursday Fit Challenge

If I workout with a sweat-shirt on will I burn more calories?

That sweat dripping off your body is not necessarily more fat melting. Your heart rate increases because blood vessels dilate to increase blood flow to the skin to help your body cool down, not because more calories are being burned. Think about it this way, you burn the same amount of calories sitting in a sauna for 15 minutes as you do sitting in a chair. It’s the intensity and muscle challenge from exercise that produce the burn, not the temperature of your atmosphere. So my suggestion…where what feels comfortable ;)

Monday Fit Workout

12 Moves in 20 Minutes

AT HOME CIRCUIT

I know that all of us have access to a gym to workout, so this workout is dedicated to you ;0 If you’ve gotten bored with your old workout favorites like lunges and push-ups, use this guide to spice up your workout. You only need one set of 12-pound free weights (although feel free to bump it down if you’re a beginner, and always be sure to work to your comfort level).  Perform each exercise 20 times, taking breaks as needed. You may have to work up to 20 reps, as well as work up to finishing the program in less than 20 minutes. Happy Sweating!

It may PAIN you to continue but it HURTS much worse to STOP

Tips:

1. Any of these exercise moves can be modified.

Questions:(answer by leaving a comment)

1. Do you workout at home or the gym?

I workout both, if I had enough equipment at home I would prefer to train at home always.

2. Why are your concerns with owning a gym membership?

3. Are you more motivated at the gym or home to workout hard?

I workout harder at home, not as many distractions.
