If you read my previous post on fitness crazes, you’ll see that I’ve never been a huge fan of them. Sure I’ll try them out, but there are often too many things wrong, and not enough things right with them. So, instead, I tend to focus on the basics and create my own healthy workout routine. If you’re thinking about doing the same, here are a few of my favorite exercise techniques that we all should know. Try them out, remember them, mix and match them to your heart’s content. Trust me, I doubt you’ll be bored anytime soon.
Technique # 1- The Jumping Jack
The old school jumping jack is one of my all time favorite exercises because it is so effective on so many levels. It allows your body to stretch, get an aerobic workout, improve your coordination, and work your core, upper body, and legs all at the same time. What’s not to love about that? Plus, it doesn’t take much time. Just one minute of jumping jacks in your routine will up the level of your workout significantly, trust me.
