Let’s face it— we are all busy these days. Even the most dedicated exerciser is concerned with maximizing their time in the gym.

Chances are you'll hear yoga, or that you have to run, or that you have to drink this, or that you have to bike, dance, spin— the list is unending. That is because we are all different and there is not a “one size fits all” for any of us.

The idea was that frequently stimulating muscles throughout the week was the best way to increase lean muscle without overtraining. By the 1960s, training philosophies began to change. Full-body routines gave way to training splits, where the goal is to work a muscle using multiple sets and exercises, and then afford the muscle with as much as a week’s recovery before it’s directly trained again.
We all like a good challenge and we all love a great ripped abs workout, right? Awesome. I've combined the two of them to give you the 1,000-Rep Ripped Abs Challenge.
Unlike most fitness trends that come and go, HIIT, which pairs performing high-intensity work (exercise) intervals with low-to-moderate intensity work (exercise) recovery phases, isn’t going anywhere because it’s based on a solid foundation of research demonstrating its powerful benefits. Put simply, according to current research, HIIT yields a broader range of health, performance and fat-loss benefits in less time with fewer sessions than the traditional approach of emphasizing continuous, steady-state, cardio exercise.
