Workout Wednesday at 7PM: Circuit Training

Join the movement with us this week for Workout Wednesdays!

This week we will be hosting a free AMRAP (As Many Reps As Possible) Circuit Training session on ZOOM. Download the app for free on any web browser or mobile device and click the link here at 7 PM Wednesday to join the workout.

ZOOM ID: 626-748-173

For this week’s workout, you will need small dumbbells for arm exercises. All other exercises are weight-based and incorporate your body through movement to create resistance. If you do not own dumbbells, you can alternate with other household objects at this time such as water bottles or laundry detergent.

The coronavirus has changed daily life around the world in so many ways: the way we shop, the way we work, the way we socialize, and yes, the way we exercise. If you usually work out, or if you are craving more activity now that the globe is on lockdown, you might be wondering, where and how can do accomplish this?

Exercise is more important than ever during this pandemic, especially when it comes to reducing that funk so many of us are in right now. Physical activity improves mood and well-being and reduces stress and anxiety.

You can also use exercise as a way to organize your day. Our daily lives can be more stressful when we do not have a schedule, and exercise can be an anchor.

Do not feel pressure to turn your microphone or video options on, as this is all about your health and healing during this time. If you have a question during the workout, please feel free to speak up! Please listen to your body and alter any exercise as needed. If you need any personalized advice on how to change a position after the session, please contact me directly at info@partners-in-health.com.

January’s Fitness Tip: Resistance Bands

Resistance Bands are an easy on-the-go alternative to working out at the gym. These bands are cheaper than most regular gym equipment and are easy to travel with. Resistance bands increase flexibility and decrease risk of injury due to the ability to control finer movements.

A set of 5 resistance bands can be purchased on Amazon for a low as $10! This set here includes varying strengths to optimize your workout needs. This single piece of equipment is all you need to create a remarkable range of exercises for the entire body.

  • Efficient Workout: Loop Resistance Bands increase the effectiveness of your exercises. Ability to use for a range of workouts, from glute and hip activation, strength techniques to integrate seamlessly with every workout program such as Yoga and Pilates. 
  • Multifunctional: The resistance band can be used to exercise all parts of muscles such as arms, chest, abdomen, glutes and legs, also good for Physical Therapy, Recovery or to increase Mobility.
  • Gym-in-your-pocket: The exercise bands take up little space so that you can use them at home or carry on the way, such as in office, on a vacation, even can utilize while watching TV at home.
  • Constant Resistance: Whereas free weights create a gravitational force, resistance bands work on creating a constant full range of motion for each exercise. This improves your coordination and balance as you build strength.
