How varied is your weekly workout schedule? Cross training means working out in a few different ways so your body and mind don’t get too familiar with doing the same-old-same-old. Keeping yourself challenged, basically.
Cross training is not a new concept, but it’s still strongly tied to current trends in the fitness industry. Hands down, suspension training is the hot new trend in body-weight workouts. One reason is because you move your body in unique ways compared to other, more traditional forms of exercise. Plus, with suspension training, you can put a whole new spin on exercise. Interval training is about going hard for a short bout, around 30 or 60 seconds, then taking it easy for about the same amount of time. Then repeat. There’s one really good reason why interval training helps boost cross training: It’s hard, and so it makes sense to do it for a shorter amount of time than other cardio styles, like a long, slow run or bike ride, for instance. Let’s say you have an hour to work out. You could do interval training for half that time (that includes the warm-up) and reserve the rest of your time for weight training or yoga or stretching (or all of the above).
