This is Week 6 of my BodyRock.tv workout series! Four more weeks to go after this workout! Today’s workout is structured a little bit differently. Instead of Cardio Intervals in between each exercise, we are doing 30-seconds of Plank in between each exercise.
It’s important to change the types of challenges you are presenting your body. This routine combines isometric exercises with plyometric exercises. In the plank position you are challenging your body to maintain one static position, and the your muscles are maintaining a contraction without changing length (isometric). During the plyometric exercises your muscles are shortening and lengthening in a short amount of time with a jumping movement.
Both types of exercise will improve your strength, but they challenge your body in very different ways.
I hope you enjoy today’s workout! I will be posting a Week 6 BodyRock Workout schedule. I will also be writing about my experience running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon, so be sure to check back!
