6 Workouts for Intense Interval Training
posted on Tuesday February 23rd 2016
Hey There Pretty Birds,
I’m so exited to share my latest fitness session with you. I’ve been slowly upping my fitness game, and I’m gaining more strength and endurance. While satisfied with my slow and steady progress (I am an self-admitted #WORKINPROGRESS, nothing more, nothing less), I was lagging in my anaerobic fitness and needed to elevate my training there. Anaerobic exercise is short-lasting, high-intensity activity, where your body’s demand for oxygen exceeds the oxygen supply available. Anaerobic exercise relies on energy sources that are stored in the muscles and, unlike aerobic exercise, is not dependent on oxygen from (breathing) the air (Spark People). My trainer Kirwin always says that this kind of training really helps you in everyday life, like when you are at the airport and have to load your luggage on the conveyor belt, grab your children and run for your flight. It’s definitely helped me, the other day I leisurely walked home with two shopping bags full of fruits and veggies. Hey, mangoes, sweet potatoes and pears weigh a lot! So if you feel that you need some extra strength and endurance, why not try these six exercises? Let me know if they impact your fitness in anyway or if you just feel like a fitness goddess doing them. I hope both! Enjoy!
Stay tuned for more episodes, check out these and similar arm exercises on the NTC APP, and get ready for some serious fitness!
