5 New Workouts worth Trying.

(BlackFitness101.com) Eating right to improve your health isn’t just one way to stay healthy. Another great way to improve your well-being is with exercise! Most people know about the benefits of aerobic exercise, but here are some other fitness activities that will keep you in shape without getting too much cardio.

1) High-Intensity Interval Training:

HIIT is a high-intensity interval training that alternates between low and high intensity, with short rest periods. This type of activity provides an excellent workout for both cardio and strength. For example, you might start by doing 500 meters on a treadmill at a moderate pace before sprinting at full speed for 30 seconds before slowing down again to recover for 2 minutes.

2) Bodyweight Exercises:

Although some of these exercises might not seem like they’d be a good workout, they’re often highly effective. For example, push-ups are one of the best exercises for your chest and triceps. You can do almost any exercise with a dumbbell or resistance band, such as bicep curls or leg raises.

3) Yoga:

Yoga is another great workout that will help you reach your physical goals. The poses and movements you do in yoga often work on your body in different ways than a traditional exercise program does. It will also help you relax and improve your mental well-being. If you are looking for something a little more relaxing, then yoga is perfect. Some people find it hard to do at home because they need space, but if you have access to a yoga studio there are classes for all ages and abilities. Yoga is beneficial for anyone because of its benefits to your body and mind. Plus it really helps build flexibility so you can begin stretching before and after too.



4) Martial Arts:

Although some martial arts are purely for self-defense, there are plenty of others that have both physical and mental benefits. Karate, kickboxing, and mixed martial arts are examples of these types of workout activities. If you haven’t tried boxing yet you are missing out. It isn’t just for the boys either; women love it too. There’s an adrenaline rush that comes with it, and doing punching drills is great exercise. Boxing has taken off in a big way over the past few years and with the rise of MMA, many people want to get their cardio exercise through to this activity rather than running on the treadmill.

5) Pilates:

Pilates is one of those exercises that you might not think of as a sport, but it is. It’s a great exercise for improving posture and flexibility, but it also strengthens your core. You can even do Pilates at home with exercise equipment or bands. Pilates involves many different exercises including weight lifting, stretching, balance training, and more. The goal of the workout is to strengthen the core muscles as well as improve posture so you can get the most out of life as well as protect your joints from injury.

It’s no secret that different workout routines work for different people. Some really enjoy their time at the gym and others can’t stand it. Yet there are some who love both working out outside and the gym, but they are always on the look for something new to try. That’s why we put together this list of five new workout routines worth trying. Whether you are into boxing, yoga, or anything in between you will love at least one of these.
