Cycle Interval Workout
Undertraining is better than overtraining. It is a mistake to think that harder training will pay off immediately. Instead, you’ll get nothing but bodily discomfort and the idea to skip yet another session in a gym. Keep it in mind if you want to try the training plan you’re going to read about below. The effect is so quickly there that you’ll feel like doubling or even tripling workout time.
It’s so difficult to avoid overtraining, though. So great the drive is to lose as many inches as possible just in a few weeks. And that much effort was simply wasted. Week and half of daily workouts takes all the strength and emotions, and you look really haggard. According to scientists, if you feel weak, your immune system is weak. And there is nothing mysterious about it: muscle energy is limited. Long and excessive workouts deplete the muscle energy completely forcing them to “steal” it from the rest of the body. That’s why we need reasonable exercises.
Today let us introduce you to a cycle interval training that lasts just 30 minutes. If followed regularly and precisely, the result is guaranteed.
During 30 minutes you have to rotate three exercises.
- First – moderate treadmill running for 3 minutes (you can try any active aerobics instead).
- Second – 30 knee pushups.
- Third – 30 reverse crunches. Lie on the floor with your arms under your head or along the body. Extend your legs straight up in the air with a slight bend in your knees. Roll your hips off the floor and pull your knees to the chest and slowly return to starting position.
Adjust the tempo for pushups and crunches to you current physical shape. For the fist session, try to complete as many cycles as you can. Later, you must meet specified time frame. Pushups train not only hands and breast but also abdominal muscles. As you start doing reverse crunches, you’ll feel your abdominal muscles have been already involved.
