Few physical endeavors will challenge your mettle as much as obstacle course racing (OCR). Held in open rural areas as well as urban environments such as stadiums, courses are peppered with diverse obstacles designed to test total-body strength as well as muscular and cardiovascular endurance.
Strength training may seem like daunting affair that should be attempted only by those brave enough to enter the weight room; however, the fact is anyone can become stronger anywhere using different types of equipment. This workout will take you through the basic principles of strength training to yield improved strength, endurance, balance, and energy levels, and boost metabolism, maintain muscle mass, and prevent bone loss.
There are few things more disappointing than leaving the gym with a dry t-shirt. Lucky for you, this cycle strength workout will help you work up a sweat quickly. Hop on the bike and make the wheel hum as you work your legs and get in your cardio, then hop off for a strength and/or flexibility-building portion and a finisher move. It’s especially great for people who want a well-rounded workout, or for cyclists who wish to gain more muscle without skimping on their cardio.
We're dedicating this month's workout to the current and former brave men and women of our military. Make this workout a part of your regular routine to achieve total body strength and endurance as you get in amazing shape, then take on our annual “Murph” Challenge on Memorial Day Weekend.
We’re upping the ante with this month’s workout, so we hope you’re ready to step up (and row, dip, and mountain climb)! Start with cardio, perform 3-5 rounds of these four basic gym moves on the versatile Freemotion Step machine, and finish off with another round of cardio for a full body workout that will hit every major muscle group.
