Answer is Fitness - Cicruit Training, Foxboro, MA

There is no shortcut to true fitness and safe weight loss. Combining strength and cardio via circuit training fitness is a rock solid path to physical fitness success.

With circuit training it will excite you to the max. Your heart rate will start pumping up and strengthen your muscles at the same time. Moving fast and quickly through each station to work your muscle groups with little to no rest in between stations is a challenging task. You will find yourself engaging as you switch up the sequence looking forward for the swap out to different stations. The alternating push-ups and squats will give you a heart pounding and catch-up your breath as you move on to the next station. Others are wanting to make it more challenging as such they switch from station to station faster in order to boost the intensity. It depends on you because you have the option to choose a workout at your own comfortable pace.

Circuit training does the trick if you are looking for a full-body workout. Work at your own pace. You will enjoy the benefit of muscle building and toning together with an intense cardio workout. More importantly, this is more effective at weight loss and overall health that is equivalent to the amount of cardio your body needs.

Importance of Improving Cardiorespiratory Endurance (CRE)

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 23, 2021
Answer is Fitness - Cardio Respiratory Endurance Training

The ultimate path to cardio respiratory endurance is by improving your body's efficiency to distribute oxygen. Cardio respiratory endurance, or CRE, also known as aerobic fitness, involves performing exercise at a moderate level of intensity for an extended period. A good routine is starting with a warm up of the muscles, followed by exercising at least 20 minutes and finishing with a cooling down period to return the heart to its resting rate.

Aerobic exercise is different from anaerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise is usually running, jogging, swimming, bicycling or even speed walking because all of these activities get your heart rate up and generally use larger muscle groups. Naturally, your breathing increases as your heart rate climbs and your lungs fill with oxygen. This oxygen is filtered through bronchioles first and then heads to the alveoli (tiny sacs in the lungs that resemble bunches of grapes) where the oxygen is then diffused into the blood. From there the oxygen goes straight to your heart. The heart then sends the blood along with the oxygen and other nutrients throughout your body. Once the oxygen is inside your muscles it burns fat and carbohydrates for fuel. The more fuel the muscles use the more fit we become and the longer we can exercise.

The two types of exercises listed above differ mainly by the duration and intensity of muscular contractions involved. When you begin jogging, running or swimming the glycogen is broken down to produce glucose (sugar), which is then broken down using oxygen to generate energy. Carbohydrates such as fruit, bread pasta and cereals are common sources of glucose. These foods are broken down into sugar in our stomachs, and then absorbed into the bloodstream so that we can read a book, remember names or run a mile.

It is best to exercise beyond 30 minutes (up to 40 minutes or longer) at a moderate intensity since the body begins to metabolize fat after 30 minutes of aerobic activity. That's great news for those of us interested in losing weight since the glucose is used up and the body begins fat metabolism instead. Regular aerobic activity will improve your body's consumption of oxygen.

You can build your cardio respiratory endurance effectively by engaging in Answer is Fitness aerobic activities every day of the week. Even if you are playing a game of basketball, raking leaves, cleaning your house or chasing the kids around as long as you do it for 30 or more minutes. Improving your cardio respiratory endurance will help you burn fat, reduce your blood pressure and reduce stress.

Ab Workout Common Mistakes

Joseph Coupal - Friday, February 19, 2021
Answer is Fitness - Ab Workout

Ab day is never your easy day. Training abs requires dedicated work. Unfortunately, some of you are working hard but not getting the most positive effect from your hard work. It is wise to know which exercises are best and that there is a distinct difference between abs and core exercise.

Our "abs", or what we refer to as our abs is actually one muscle- our rectus abdominus muscle. It is one small part of the whole area between our rib cage and our pelvis that we know as our "core". For now, let’s talk about that six-pack, or your abs. This may be the area of the body where most people make mistakes in training. So we will go through a few basic ground rules for training our abs:

More is not better! Your rectus abdominus is made up of fast twitch muscle fibers. That means that it responds best to low reps such as 8-10 at a time. Your best bet is to do 3 or 4 sets of 8-12 crunches for your 6 pack. That's it. You can train your deeper core muscles after these surface ones are tired but that’s a whole discussion in itself.

Abdominal training should always come LAST. Some people think that you should train your abs first while they are "fresh" in order to get the best results. It’s o.k. if that’s the only thing you are training that day, but if you are doing another body part- do that first. Your abs provide structural support for other exercises. If you tire them out, you will not be able to perform your best and may hurt yourself in the process.

Remember diet is the key. No matter what you are doing in the gym, the only way to really get definition in your middle is by watching what you put in your mouth. Eating smaller meals often throughout the day will help turn your keg into a 6 pack!

Keeping your mind focused and making sure you stay consistent with your workout routine is the best way to get quality ab workout results. If you feel as though its a bit harder to get motivated then check out our excellent group exercise programs. They provide a lot of support and fun activities to get you into the spirit of working out.
