HIIT trend doing it correctly

Posted by Anne Marie Parr on May 7, 2017 at 10:05 AM Comments comments (0)

From IDEA

Learn how to teach safe HIIT classes that utilize all intensity variables and get your clients res...

Bodyweight Exercises part of your program

Posted by Anne Marie Parr on December 4, 2016 at 7:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Found an Article on Importance of Bodyweight Exercises

Originally appeared at jasonferruggia.com.

 

Bodyweight exercises need to be part of your program if you want to get jacked. But not just pushups, sit ups and high rep calisthenics. That’s beginner stuff that won’t build any real muscle.

Never Do This Exercise... Plus: The 5 WORST Exercise Mistakes That Are Destroying Your Metabolism, Keeping You Flabby, Weak & Injury-Prone by Shin Ohtake, Fitness & Fat Loss Expert, Author of MAX Workouts

Posted by Anne Marie Parr on July 26, 2016 at 10:25 AM Comments comments (1)

 

Surprisingly, not all exercises are good for you. In fact, research has discovered that doing crunches, sit-ups and other ab-targeted exercises will NOT help you get flat, washboard abs.

There is so much HOT YOGA out there these days, love to share what the HOT Yoga Dr. suggests.

TIP: What do you mean when you talk about ‘connections’ in yoga? Is it physical, metaphysical, cosmic?


It’s such a huge metaphor. So, in this email we’re talking of your hot yoga "interconnectedness".
