Body Weight Training
No equipment workouts are gaining in popularity as more people gravitate towards the more primal aspects of physical fitness from practices used in the east for centuries. They are easy to learn, require no training, and can be done anywhere. Pushups, pilates, pullups, lunges, planks, and more are the cornerstones to maintaining a fit body using only body weight as resistance.
High-Intensity Interval Training, or HIIT workout burns calories quick with short bursts of highly effective movements that shock the body into peak fitness. Several methods of fitness incorporate HIIT, including pilates, Crossfit, and many boot camp classes. Many companies are also utilizing the method, with a guided workout available at 20 to 30 minutes per routine.
