So Spring is on its way and it won’t be long until the clocks are going forward bringing us those longer lighter evenings I am sure you have all missed….I know I have.
But the only problem is it means you are going to lose an hour and as time is precious and I am sure most of you already struggle to make enough time in the week to train as much as you would like I thought I would devise a workout to help you double up on your exercise in the same amount of time.
In this workout we will use your rest period as an “active rest” this means you will carry out a core or abdominal exercise or a cardio exercise in your rest period as you catch your breath. This means we can fit more into your workout and get your burning more calories in a shorter time. Win Win
