Welcome to a brand new week of workouts!
This week we have six workouts on the agenda. Get ready for a fantastic week of exercise to strengthen your body and improve your overall health and wellness. If you are brand new to BenderFitness workouts, remember that you can modify the exercises to suit your personal needs. That can mean doing a lower impact variation of an exercise, or adding weights to increase the intensity of the workout.
Any easy way to modify an exercise, is to take the plyometric (jumping) version of the exercise and make it low impact. For example, Squats can be substituted for Squat Jumps, or Alternating Lunges for Lunge Jumps. Side Planks are very challenging for most people, so if you aren’t quite ready for the harder variations, hold a static side plank. Remember to listen to your body and adjust as needed.
As you progress through these exercises you will build strength, endurance, power and overall fitness. When you stick to your program you will see and feel your body growing stronger. Before you know it, you will be pushing through these workouts for max reps without rest breaks.
This week’s schedule includes HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), LIIT(Low Intensity Interval Training), and Yoga. You will also get in a few Total Body Workouts, along with a Lower Body Workout and Core focused workout.
