Let’s talk about A and B workouts and how they can help you achieve your fitness goals in a fun and efficient way.
A workouts are high-intensity interval training (HIIT) exercises that are designed to push your limits and build strength. These exercises, such as sprints or cardio, are perfect for when you're feeling energetic and want to challenge yourself. And the best part? You don't need to spend hours at the gym to see results. Studies have shown that incorporating 20-minute workouts daily with different routines have a greater impact on your health and longevity than long continuous cardio movements.
Examples of A workouts:
- Strength Training
Yesterday, I had a 30-minute break in between calls and I decided to make the most of it. I hopped on my treadmill and focused on sprints during my break. It was an A workout and let me tell you, my body felt amazing afterwards. I was relieved that it didn't take a lot of time to complete, and I was able to get in an efficient workout for the day.
But, it's not all about pushing yourself to the limit. It's important to balance your workouts with low-impact exercises as well. That's where B workouts come in. B workouts are low-impact exercises, such as walking or yoga, that are great for recovery days or when you need to take it easy. These workouts help to stretch and tone your muscles, improve flexibility and keep you feeling balanced. B workouts could include yoga flow for flexibility, light pilates for muscle toning, or pelvic floor exercises.
Examples of B workouts:
The key is to focus on optimizing your workouts rather than maximizing them. This means incorporating both high-intensity and low-impact exercises into your routine and using better techniques for a strong body, rather than repeating the same motion for a long period of time.
A and B workouts are the perfect duo for a healthy and balanced fitness routine. Whether you're looking to challenge yourself or simply take it easy, there's a workout for you. So, get out there and have some fun with your fitness journey!
