HIIT run workouts: interval #1
If you love to run, as I do, then I think you’ll enjoy this new workout series I’m calling HIIT Run Workouts. You’re probably always on the lookout for new ways to switch things up and keep your runs interesting. Variety is really important to keep your workouts fresh and inspiring. To kick off this simple and effective HIIT run workout series, I’ve combined running with some simple, classic bodyweight exercises. The beauty of this workout is that it can be done anywhere: at home, at your favourite running spot like the beach, or at the gym.
The best exercise for older women
The two questions I get asked most often about exercise are: what’s the most effective exercise for weight loss and what is the best type of exercise for older women? The answer I always give is that the best exercise for any goal is the right combination that works for YOU! And that’s not a copout, it’s simply the truth. A lot of experts will tell you that you have to change things up once you’re over 40, or over 50. There’s a common belief that what used to work for you won’t work anymore, now that you’ve reached a “certain age”.
The thing is, you should always be changing and evolving your workouts if you want to make progress, no matter how old you are.
Keep it simple, with plenty of variety
As everyone in the Wendy’s Way community knows, I’m a big believer in keeping things as simple as possible and exercise is no different. Don’t over complicate it, if you don’t need to! Yes, strength training is important, but having some aerobic fitness is helpful too. Flexibility is also pretty handy. The most important thing tho, is to find a combination of activities that you enjoy doing. The bottom line is: if you don’t enjoy it, you won’t keep doing it and consistency is the key to results.
