Now is the perfect moment to design a workout routine to follow in the next few weeks and months.
First, because it’s always the right time to choose the healthy path. Second, due to the solstice. What? Think about it: half of the world is starting the summer, the time when people feel more like doing outdoor activities. The other half is welcoming the winter and, in consequence, getting ready for the bikini challenge.
Whether you want to enjoy the sun, to get fit for next summer, or just start taking care of yourself, apps can help you achieve your goals. No matter who you are, your background or your available workout time: there’s a workout app to meet your needs.
No more excuses. You might be busy, but you definitely have at least 7 minutes every day, don’t you? Try High Intensity Circuit Training (HICT).
ABISHKKING’s 7 Minute Workout includes a great list of validated HICT exercises and generates workout routines you can follow with a single tap. It will guide you through exercises and breaks, plus indicate when you have to start, when you have to stop, and the right pace to perform the exercise.
Just tap the button and start your 7 Minute Workout as often as needed to meet your goals.
Several studies have shown that High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is the most effective way to burn body fat. If you don’t have a lot of time to exercise and you want to reach your goals quickly, HIIT is one of the best way to make it happen.
HIIT consists of simple exercises you can do almost anywhere (like sprint running, stair climbing, etc.), all of which are short in duration and maxed out in intensity. You need a timer app like this one able to set the start and the end of the exercise and breaks as well as its pace. In addition, Caynax’s HIIT allows you to design your HIIT workout routine and track your progresses seamlessly. Merge it with your power of will and results will come in a few weeks.
