Yoga is known to effectively improve your flexibility while calming your mind and relieving stress. However, if you’re aiming to lose weight and have an overall healthy body, yoga alone is not enough. In fact, in one study, participants doing yoga for half an hour burned only about 120 calories while other exercises burned more, such as aerobics, which consumed at least 165 calories.
Cardiorespiratory training (Cardio for short) has many health benefits and as little as 10-20 minutes a day can:· Give you a stronger heart· Reduce your risk of heart disease· Reduce cholesterol levels (so you can eat more bacon…just kidding!)· Reduce blood pressure
HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a fitness training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps heart rate up and burns more fat in less time.

Drink Whey Protein before training
