Welcome to a new installment of the FitERin30 workouts: Beat the Winter Blues!
This fun, 30 minute workout combines high rep, light resistance training with high intensity training that will raise the heart rate and make you breathe harder, all the while causing a surge of wonderful happy chemicals called endorphins, as these flood your system you will be beating those winter blues away!
The functional training elements of this workout are high intensity, you go as hard as you can for as long as you can in 1 minute.
When you combine this kind of workout with the high rep resistance machines you will cause an increase in your testosterone (yes for ladies too) and growth hormone levels, this will in turn inhibit the production of cortisol which is a stress hormone linked to abdominal fat and therefore create the perfect environment for FAT BURN!
That’s right, not only will this workout beat those winter blues and give you an uplift but will also burn fat too!
30 minutes of this workout will be far more efficient than pounding the treadmill for an hour!
Always start with a warm up!
Warming the body does not necessarily mean getting hot and sweaty but it does mean preparing the body to move and warming the muscles, increasing blood flow and breathing a little harder. Ideal warm ups will mimic some of the big joint movement that you are going to do in the workout itself.
- 3 minutes on the treadmill at a power walking pace
- 10 squats
- 5 lunges each side
- Arm Circles
- High knees
Once you are warm and ready to go this workout will soon have you breathing harder!
