31 Days to a Better Body: Day 19 – Bang for Your Buck
If you are like me working out is not a hobby it’s a necessity. While I’ve learned to very much enjoy exercising there are many many other things I’d rather be doing. Just keepin’ it real, yo’.
Since I don’t
want have a lot of time to workout, I spend my time doing exercises that give me the most bang for my buck. “Bang for your buck” exercise use a large number of muscle groups. Exercises like squats, deadlifts, lunges, pull-ups, push ups, kettlebell swings and other compound (more than one joint moves) movements. These “bang for your buck” exercises are best done while standing on my own two feet on a solid surface without the support of some odd contraption originally designed for rehabilitation. Machines, unstable surfaces, and isolations (one joint moves like in a bicep curl) can have their place. However, I’m trying to maintain a lean strong functionally fit physique in the least time possible so full body workouts that recruit a ton of muscle fibers and burn a bunch of calories are the way to go!
Do you feel like exercising is a hobby or necessity? Or both?
