Pole Fitness is the #2 ranked best exercise you can do!
Long gone are the days where using a pole meant you were being paid to take your clothes off. As it turns out, the second best workout you can get is on a pole! Pole Fitness classes have been popping up all around the country and are becoming mainstream. Working out on a pole builds strength, coordination and balance and is both a strength and cardio workout which creates full-body fitness. Plus it's FUN!!! 250
What's #1? 205 Parkour - which is a method of running and jumping over and off obstacles.
Unless your doing circuit training or a specific dvd, do your abs/core exercises first, then your strength, and then cardio LAST! Why: Because you'll put everything into the strength/ab exercises if you do them first. Your muscles will not be as tired, and it will reduce the likelihood of injury.
This is something I saw written by a personal trainer. He sets his workout like this: Abs Strength Cardio
Also, it has been said it takes you 15 minutes or so to burn fat. If you follow a workout this way, and have 15-30 minutes of strength & abs in, by the time you hit cardio your body is burning fat!
Ingredients: Spark People, Strength training, Cardio, Blogging, Goals, Setbacks (yes, everyone has them). Directions: Mix all ingredients and allow them time to blend together. Set oven temperature for fat burning. Place on a baking sheet and spread all ingredients evenly until it's ready. Once it has baked (time varies depending on altitude and climate) remove from the oven and examine. Add new goals and continue baking. Share with a friend. Enjoy!
I reached my goal (actually past my goal weight) today. I wrote a blog about it and thought of this recipe for success (with more detail in the blog)
