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!!!

My best friend who is a track and cross country runner told me about doing the Lying Abduction (or Adduction) exercise while you read. But you can do it while watching TV as well. I love doing this because then I feel more time-efficient!

12 minute, body weight only workouts...pike squats, jump squats, reverse planks...all while on a 30 second interval timer. Do what you can for 30 seconds and move on to the next workout. Do cardio before and stretching after to avoid straining.
Good examples of the ones I am doing on found here...www.bodyrock.tv
