Everyone wants a healthy and a fit body. But they barely have the time to devote to that goal. Well, if you’re one of those people, then we have good news for you. Contrary to what you might have believed, it just takes a couple of minutes on a regular basis to keep you healthy and fit.
This fall, work towards your dream body by adopting these latest fitness trends.
Time for a quick workout
We know how difficult it is for you to manage time and get 30 minutes from your busy schedule. Therefore, the quick 10 to 15-minute workout is one of the top fitness trends this fall. You need to work out intensely within this short period of time. This intensity will shock your body, and greatly improve your fitness. To reap maximum benefits from these exercises, workout for 30 minutes.
No more dumbbells
Dumbbells are the most common equipment you will see at a gym or fitness centre. But there are alternatives to dumbbells, and the workouts involving them. For example, you can use a resistance band to perform various muscle toning exercises. You can easily target your legs, arms, and back at different angles; something which is not possible with dumbbells. So, this fall, set the dumbbells aside. Use other alternatives to tone your muscles, by picking them up and moving them.
Use your body weight for toning
This fall, the trending fitness method is to use your own body weight for toning exercises. Instead of doing the standard squats by holding weights, you can opt for jump squats sans weights. You can use TRX for suspension training. These are sturdy anchored straps that give you the flexibility to use your own body weight for toning your muscles. It will also improve your overall fitness and core strength.
Use online workout videos
This fall, one of the emerging trends is watching online workout videos. It is the most convenient, economical (in fact, practically free!) and easy way of doing a workout. You can easily find many workout videos online and can choose from among them as per your need. You can search for cardio, yoga, bodyweight training, toning, dance, etc. and you will find many related videos. There are specific channels dedicated to fitness which you can follow.
Include Dancing in your routine
Dance is another top fitness trend that you will see this year. There are a plethora of reality shows promoting dance and fitness; inspiring people to go for dance workouts. Fitness dancing is one of the best ways of doing cardio exercise. It will not only burn your calories, but also help you tone your abs, hips, and back by specific dance moves. You can enroll yourself for a Zumba class or watch videos online, to do it at home. Bellyfit classes will also help you in toning your body. It is a mix of African dance, belly dance, Bollywood moves, etc. You will enjoy dancing while getting a fit body in return.
Balance training is quite useful for targeting your lower body muscles as well as abs. It improves your overall balance and provides better performance and functional movement in your daily life. Find a piece of equipment which you will be using while exercising, and you will have to balance yourself while sitting, standing or lying on it. For instance, try doing plank or crunches on a stability ball or use a balance trainer for squatting. Keep adding variety to your fitness program, keep challenging yourself; and you will see positive results before long.
Incorporate the learnings from these fitness trends into your daily routines, and watch yourself get that fitter and healthier body in no time!
