Fitness is a part of our lives that can often take a back seat to all of the other responsibilities we have throughout the week but if you do it right you don’t need to spend hours in the gym to stay healthy and strong.
Below I’ve selected my best articles on creating and planning your own fitness routine to stay on the right track to having a healthy and strong body but still have plenty of time to spend with your family and friends (or watch Game of Thrones…).
How to Workout Quickly and Efficiently
Quick workouts don’t mean skimping on quality or sacrificing results. It just means getting more done in less time. Working out like this isn’t easy but it’s fun and it will help you to build a fit and healthy body no matter how busy you are. Here are some articles to help you get started:
Kettlebells are an awesome fitness tool. They focus on full body compound movements that help to build a powerful and healthy body. Along with calisthenics they’re my favorite tool for getting serious results.
They differ from free weights in that they are held by a handle that puts the center of gravity of the object farther removed from your grip. That means that as you use them they continue to shift throughout the exercise and force your body to adapt to this. That’s why they are fantastic for building full body conditioning and improving balance.
The kettlebell swing is hands down one of the best whole body exercises that you can do. It works out every muscle in your posterior chain and is great for conditioning as well.
Just one kettlebell can replace a whole host of expensive equipment that you don’t even need unless you’re a professional bodybuilder. Read on to find out how.
