As I’ve mentioned before, I recently started weight training because I found that it has loads of benefits, not to mention that it gets your body into great shape. Before I added weight training to my exercise regime though I was doing at home workouts with Bodyrock every day. Bodyrock.tv is a fantastic website where you get daily workouts for free!
The workouts are made to be performed in your own home and require minimal equipment, so no excuses for putting off trying it out.
I’ve been Bodyrocking for about eight months and love it! The average workout is twelve to twenty minutes long, and, although that may not sound long enough to some of you, it manages to make you feel completely exhausted in just that short amount of time.
Bodyrock is High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) meaning that you workout to the best of your ability for a short amount of time and then take a short break before returning to it. The timings are typically 30 seconds workout, 10 seconds rest or 50 seconds workout, 10 seconds rest.
In order to achieve maximum results you must be ‘giving it your all’ though. I found that I’d much prefer to push really hard for 50 seconds than workout at an average pace for an hour anyway.
HIIT works best when you put 100% effort into it, and you will see results pretty fast. Bodyrock incorporates cardio with weight training and body-weight exercises, so you get a full body workout in just a short amount of time.
I strongly recommend that you give Bodyrock a try. You don’t need any equipment to begin – although after a while you may want to buy some free weights to increase your workout. It’s free every day though, so what have you got to lose?
Check out this video, it’s an example of a typical Bodyrock workout…
Although this video is being taught by a woman, Bodyrock isn’t just for ladies, so guys go check it out aswell.
For those of you who already love training but can’t always make it to the gym this is a fantastic alternative, and for those of you who are new to exercise the good news is that the instructors usually give alternatives to the tougher exercises for beginners.
