The New Year is coming, and with that comes plenty of New Years Resolutions in regards to health and fitness. As the new year hits, gyms will be packed with those looking to hit their workout goals, and fulfill their New Year's resolutions. If you’re someone who is looking to get back into the gym and lose weight in the new year, here are some helpful workouts that will help you stick to, and achieve your new year's resolution.
Let’s be honest, of all the people who are setting out to lose weight in the new year, only a fraction of them will reach their goals, as the rigor and commitment of a weight loss program can often be too strenuous. Walks are a great starting point to ensure that you don’t burn yourself out, especially early in the year. Studies show that by just walking a few minutes per day, you can lose body fat, improve cardio, strengthen your muscles, and plenty of other benefits that can be achieved by just walking regularly. This is a great starting point, especially for those who have gone without cardio workouts for some time.
H.I.I.T stands for high intensity interval training, and is a fantastic way to burn calories and fat in a short period of time. If you’re a more experienced exerciser, H.I.I.T is a fantastic way to immediately start losing weight. Some great, simple exercises to implement in your H.I.I.T workout are push-ups, jumping jacks, burpees, high knees, and really any form of bodyweight exercise that will increase your heart rate.
If you’re working out at a commercial gym and are looking to implement equipment into your H.I.I.T workout, look no further than the SledMill. The SledMill’s console has a built in H.I.I.T setting so you can do an entire sled workout using H.I.I.T intervals, and by using accessories like straps and a parachute, you can truly get a full body H.I.I.T workout all in one machine!
Finally, a good core routine is essential to losing weight in the new year. Let's be honest, good health is often associated with a flat stomach, and this is an area that many people focus on when assessing their weight gain/loss. Core exercises burn fat and calories, and are also associated with better back health, and improved posture. However, one of the main drawbacks to ab training to many people is the prospect of having to get down on the floor to work your core. At the abs company, we make sure you don’t have to do that, and that your ab workout is the highlight of your workout.
With our Ab Zone products, we provide a wide range of core training options, each of which are fun, innovative ways to train. If you’re training at a gym, look for an AbSolo to burn your core. On the AbSolo, users have a fun, competitive workout that completely engages the entire core, and you can even compete against your friends! And if the majority of your workouts are going to be taking place at home, look no further than our flagship product, the Ab Coaster. This machine allows users to work the abs from the bottom-up, and is a tremendous alternative to the traditional sit-up.
If you’re somebody who is looking to lose weight in the new year, these workouts are great options for individuals of all fitness levels and abilities. You can start by simply walking, and work yourself all the way up to doing high intensity interval training by the end of the year. May all your fitness dreams come true in 2022!
