Alternating Types of Workouts

2 Types of Workouts for Maximum Fitness

If you are looking to improve your workout routine and get to your fitness goals, let's explore the two types of workouts you should be alternating between throughout the week.

First, we focus on strength, building muscle and getting your heart rate up. Think high-intensity interval training here. This doesn't mean spending hours in the gym, but doing effective workouts that allow you to really challenge yourself through cardio and strength training. Personally, I love indoor cycle, running and lifting. Both of these get my heart rate up and I love sprinkling them into my weekly workout routine 2-3 times a week.

Type 1: Cardio & Strength

  • Cycling

  • Running

  • Circuit Training

  • Strength Training

In order to balance that, we need to also focus on low-impact workouts. These include movements that allow you to sculpt, lengthen and tone. Movements that allow you to consistently activate your core and work on your flexibility are just as impactful.

Type 2: Lengthening & Toning

  • Pilates

  • Yoga

  • Barre

  • Sculpting

The combination of these two types of workouts create a beautiful balance in your workout regime. Feel free to mix up the workout style to find what works best for you. Remember to alternate before type 1 and type 2 will maximize your results. Most important, enjoy your workouts, they are meant to make you feel good!
