Try Tabata Today!

Good day to all!

I live for cardio! I love running, walking, biking, high intensity interval training or Tabata and Turbo Kick, but that doesn’t mean that these types of workouts are all my body needs. It’s crucial to find time for toning exercises as well. I think that’s why I love 3.2.1. so much, because I am able to do my favorite cardio exercises while I tone different muscle groups.

Not only is toning beneficial for creating long lean muscles, but according to Mayo Clinic, toning helps preserve muscle mass, it controls weight, it reduces the risk of osteoporosis and it decreases your chance of injury. So check out the Tabata workout and get your heart pumpin’. And then, follow the toning exercises for your arms, legs and abs. You need heavy weights, a mat, a timer and some water.

I hope you have fun! Let me know what your favorite form of Cardio is in the comment section below.

Stay Strong!
