It’s more about making fitness a lifestyle than anything else.
Mixing aerobics with strength training, Bullock, age 45, runs, bikes, and incorporates kickboxing into her regular fitness regimen. She likes plyometrics and using weights in her strength training workouts to get the best results from each muscle group. She’s found, like most women, that mixing your workout with different exercises is a good way to stay in shape and get outstanding results.
Plyometrics is a type of exercise that enables a muscle to reach its maximum force in the shortest amount of time. By stretching the muscle first and then quickly following with an activity that requires force such as jumping or sprinting, the muscle will produce optimum results. For runners, plyometrics is a great way to increase speed. For women who want to take their fitness to the next level, plyometrics may be the exercise regimen you need.
After a long cold winter, spring is near and summer will follow soon after. To get in shape for swimsuit season, consider a fitness program like Bullock’s that combines strength training and aerobics. Once you’ve become accustomed to an exercise routine that you enjoy, consider trying plyometrics or circuit training to keep things interesting. Most importantly, get out and get as much exercise and activity as you can handle.
