Give Plyos a Try: A great way to improve muscle power is by incorporating plyometric exercises. Some examples include box jumps, jumping squats & plyometric push-ups.
- Alternate lower then upper body. 20 box jumps, right into 20 pushups, then 20 jump squats. Complete 3 rounds. Do this 3 times/week.
Intervals: Interval training is a great way to burn calories in a short period of time. Intervals can be done outside or on your favorite (or least favorite) cardio machines.
- Find a hill close to home. Run up full speed for at least 20 seconds then walk down for 20 seconds. Start with 5 rounds, eventually working up to 10 rounds.
- For a treadmill, raise the incline to 5% and run at 5 MPH for 20 seconds then walk for 20 seconds. Do this for 5 rounds, eventually working up to a 15% incline and 10 rounds after a few weeks.
