Marketing, one of those things that can create confusion especially in our world of fitness. Here is what I think are some of the phrases we hear in fitness that may confuse consumers. We have all seen it from the words "toning" "lean" "weight loss" and the most infamous, "long lean muscles". Also "six pack abs" "bigger", "stronger", "shredded", and just get "jacked". I don't know if you noticed, but marketing words used as my examples definitely target specific genders.
The dreaded “C” word, cardiovascular exercise or cardio for short. This is often done as part of some resolution you’ve made around New Years to lose weight. Or punishment for that juicy hamburger you ate last night.Did you really need that extra serving of fries? Come on, you know that answer.
So as I have recently posted, I have been sticking to a three day a week full body workout with cardio days mixed in. Still, as I am such a big proponent of mixing workout up, today's and tomorrows workout have been changed.
Tools for your resistance training program…the Peripheral Heart Action System. Don’t worry…if it sounds scary, it isn’t! This is simply another way that you can perform your resistance training and it’s a variation of circuit training (Circuit training adds in the “cardio” portion of your workout so you get more bang for your buck!!)
