In one of our recent blog post 5 Ways to Burn More Calories During a Workout, the more muscles you use, the more fat/sugar you will burn. Total body workouts where you choose big groups of muscles (complex exercises) are the most effective. Try these exercises that will get the whole body working:
Start in the box position with knees into hips. Drive the right leg out to the left, sitting back on the heel of your left leg. Return to the start position and repeat to the right.
This is great for your arms and abs! Start standing, drop hands to the floor and walk out as far as you can reach. Walk the hands back and stand. To progress add a jump or a jump and turn 180 in the air and walkout in the opposite direction.
Great for the glutes! Squat down and bring your right leg behind the body and out to the side (8pm on the clock). Return to standing and repeat with the left leg (4pm on the clock). Again to progress, add a jump and rotate round facing the other way.
See how many reps you can do of each in a 40 second time frame. Rest for 20 seconds then repeat 5 times! Try these exercises with one of our trainers!
Post Workout Nutrition:
Always eat protein and a small amount of sugar from a natural source to help with recovery. Fruit is great source of sugar from a natural source. Also, remember to hydrate! We can lose at least 2 litres of water a day and even more when exercising. We need to replace this to keep the body functioning efficiently.
Sleep at least 7 hours a night to aid recovery. This can have a negative effect on hormones and cortisol release, which then stimulates fat storage, which we don’t want.
