Weight Lifting and Cardio: Get Both When You Cross TrainAugust 30th, 2013
Sometimes, it’s hard to choose. If both options are excellent, how can you be expected to decide just one? We feel the same way about exercise. Cardio and strength training both have their own unique benefits, but it takes a blend of the two to really get a comprehensive workout (and smart nutrition for optimum fitness and health.) So at Smooth Fitness, we invite you NOT to choose.
How is that possible, you ask? It’s simple: start cross training. The beautiful thing about cross training workouts is that they allow you to incorporate cardio, fitness accessories, and strength training however you need to in order to obtain your results. They can be tailored to individual needs, meaning that your cross training workouts will accommodate injuries, illness, and any other physical issues you may have. So you don’t have to feel restricted or held back—because when you cross train, all you’re doing is giving yourself more freedom in your exercise.
Cross-training may be all the rage right now, but it’s anything but a passing craze. We think the many benefits of cross training workouts make it a valuable and effective approach to exercise that will definitely stick around. And from what we’re seeing, fitness enthusiasts love that they can use so many different techniques, fitness accessories and types of exercise equipment to get the results they’re looking for. The great thing about the fitness industry is that it’s constantly moving forward—new discoveries in health and technology can be continually applied to help us achieve better health and life long fitness.
