Welcome back! I am posting today with something that has been haunting me for weeks. We are all about balance, true; and about real foods, fair enough. And what about fitness? Well, we are all about what we will call in this series, real fitness too!
What does that mean? Well, that means we are traditional when it comes to building strength and we recommend and prefer fitness exercises that build strong muscles and bones from within.
Our stars are:
- Martial Arts
- Body weight exercise
- Dancing – Ballet, Jazz, Yoga, Zumba, Barre
Yes, I know I am leaving out a lot of popular fitness trends and techniques. However, we quote these four as our favorites, because they build strength from within. Martial Arts, such as Kung Fu, and Yoga are number one and two due to their specific mix of mindfulness, breathing, flexibility, and strength building.
Body weight exercise and Dancing made the list because of their focus on building strength from within, through repetitive movements and routines. Dancing will typically involve flexibility training while you need to add some stretch routine for Body weight.
You could make any HIIT or Tabata HITT or leave them as is. Any of these are great cardio and will get you strong from within!
