According to Free Dictionary:
Now, let’s redefine it in fitness terms. Be your own groupie, your own fan, being your own cheerleader and get friends to root for you too. How, you say? Get a group of people with like minded ideas about fitness, who have similar goals as yours. Get the type of people who will root for you, not be jealous or bring you down, but the cheerleader types. And sorry, no sex involved… if you want to progress!
Now, with this fan club develop a weekly event that you can do together. I sprint with these people every week… additional people either come or go, but I have a great core group who applaud every effort I make. My Groupie!
In addition to having a groupie, the other subject I’d like to address is adding DRAMA to your workouts.
Are your workouts getting stale??? Haaaa! I bet they are. Here’s a little drama to add to your workouts.
Remember HIIT? High Intensity Interval Training.
There are several ways you can do high intensity without equipment, mix and match, change every day. Choose 3 exercises, and do 1 variation 5x.
- jump roping
- jumping jacks
- side burpies
- squat jumps
- ski jumps
- split jumps
- mountain climbers
- one legged mountain climbers
Intervals can be different variations:
30 seconds exercise, 30 seconds rest
30 seconds exercise, 15 seconds rest
60 seconds exercise, 30 seconds rest
My favorite variation is the first one but you can make it match what you prefer. Add some drama! It’s so much more exciting that way!
