Summer is almost here, and for many of us that not only means warmer weather and lots of time in the great outdoors, it also means dusting off the runners from the back of the closet and working on our fitness again.
Seeing as how you have all been diligently following your BT diet through the winter, and we know it’s about 70% healthy eating and 30% exercise, it should be easy to increase your fitness and quickly tone up a few problem areas with some nifty circuit workouts. When getting back into it I have three tips to help keep you going strong right through summer.
Super Circuits are my favorite way to train for overall fitness, as you can easily incorporate any exercises to design a workout that’s just right for you. Workouts don’t need to be any longer than 30-45 mins for excellent fitness results. For best results I recommend using an alternating body part formula, placing in a cardio burst every 4th exercise. Check out my example below.
Cardio Burst: Rower/Elliptical/Run – 90 seconds
Upper Body Push Exercise – 30 seconds
Lower Body Exercise – 30 seconds
Upper Body Pull Exercise – 30 seconds
Rest 90 seconds
You will complete four sets through in total. Round one will be a warm up round at about 60% intensity, and sets two, three and four will be at your maximum capacity as your “working” rounds. To incorporate this into the blood type guidelines blood type O and blood type B would repeat this with a new set of exercises for a total of 8 exercises and a 40 minute workout, blood type A and blood type AB would then go into some Yoga/Relaxation to de stress and relax for the following 20 minutes to complete a 40 minute workout.
