Total-Body Benefits of High Intensity Metabolism Boost & Core Strengthening Workout
Metabolism Booster : Your metabolism is the process your body uses to make and burn energy from food. You rely on your metabolism to breathe, think, digest, circulate blood, keep warm in the cold and stay cool in the heat. It is true that raising your metabolism helps you burn more calories and increase weight loss.
Strengthen & Activate your Core : Having a strong core can help your body’s performance in daily activities, sporting activities and can even help prevent injuries. The function of your core muscles is to stabilise your joints, which reduces wear and tear and helps to protect structures throughout your body. You cannot strengthen your core muscles just by doing regular sit-ups or by planking. Sometimes your superficial muscles can compensate for weak core muscles. Teaching your body to activate your core muscles can improve and allow your body to function at it's full potential.
Think of a strong core as your body’s support system – the muscles that help you stand taller, move more smoothly and potentially even lift more weight safely. By stabilizing your spine, your core muscles provide you with a strong, stable foundation for everyday activities like lifting heavy objects and assisting with movements that require balance and coordination. A strong core may also help boost your workout performance too, which could translate into both a better fitness level and faster results.
Targeted workouts can be great for engaging and strengthening the core, but total body workouts also help you build core strength too! Aim for a mix of training that works your core in a multitude of ways, including exercises that involve challenging the core muscles.
Remember that It takes time and consistency to start seeing good results and to achieve a full body transformation. The bottom line is 'it has to become a lifestyle' or the weight and body fat will eventually come back if you stop exercising. That is why we say '20% Exercise and 80% Nutrition!' Eating a healthy balanced diet accompanied by regular exercise is essential in maintaining physical and mental health and well-being. Not only are these effective in preventing excess weight gain or in maintaining weight loss, but healthier lifestyles are also associated with improved sleep and mood.
Together exercise and nutrition can...
- Make you feel happier
- Help with weight loss
- Strengthen your muscles and bones
- Increase your energy levels
- Reduce your risk of chronic disease
- Improve your skin health
- Definitely help your brain health and memory
- Really help with relaxation and sleep quality
