Spring Into a New Workout Routine

Even if you increase the incline of a treadmill you are still running on a flat surface unlike any road you’ve ever run on. Varying the speed and intensity throughout a workout is an effective way to burn more calories known as interval training. Traffic and other environmental obstacles force the outdoor athlete into an interval training regiment. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/04/fashion/04best.html?ref=nutrition

 Get outdoors with these endurance workouts.

*These workouts are designed to replace the cardio portion of your workouts.  Make sure to continue your strength training regiment 2-3x/week.

Create some excitement and added challenge by taking your workouts out of the gym. According to the New York Times, indoor training is a good venue for staying in shape when you absolutely cannot go outside but doesn’t provide an equal workout. The inherent variables in outdoor activity force our bodies to utilize more muscle and energy.
