March Madness Time

March is an exciting time for college basketball fans, but you can use this month to prepare us for the spring and summer seasons. Before you know it, you will be packing up your long sleeves and sweatshirts for summer clothes. Let’s be ready for it!

Increase Intensity – If you are not using HIIT workouts during your weekly exercise routine, March may be the perfect month to sprinkle some fast-paced, sweat inducing workouts into your plan. Toning up and shedding those last few pounds before you start shopping for this season’s bathing suit and beach clothes will give you more confidence. Increasing the intensity and adding more cardio-driven exercises can help prepare us for some fun in the sun.

Contract Your Muscles – When looking to add definition and shape to our muscles, it is vital to emphasize form throughout the length of our exercises. By making sure our muscles are engaged and tense during the exercise will create a harder muscle. Focus on slowing down the negative phase of each exercise and staying tense as long as possible.

Recommit to Your Core – Sometimes we forget about our core. Our weight lifting may take precedent and your ab routine falls to the wayside. This March, try carving out a set time in your routine each day for ab exercises.

When spring break and summer months creep up on us, you will be ready to show off your beach bods.
