The Perfect 35 Minute Workout
by: HERB DALY JR
Most of the physical fitness trainers, and coaches agree that
doing some sort of resistance training, and cardio training, sets
up a good foundation for all around fitness. What most people
like to do is alternate days. M-W-F do resistance training and on
Tues-thurs-sat do aerobic training or some other variation.Now
this is not a bad thing but it can be very time consuming and for
people who have real busy lives it might be hard to make this
kind of commitment.

I say why not do both in one training session? Now I am not
saying to do both in the same day. I am talking about doing a
workout for about 30-40 minutes that gives you resistance and
cardio for that time frame. Instead of making them separate,
combine them into a more efficient workout.

Another words you perform a resistance exercise, it could be your
own bodyweight, weights, cables, tubing, it doesn't matter.
Immediately after this is completed you perform a cardio
movement. It could be running in place, jumping jacks, squat
thrusts, anything that is aerobic for about (30) seconds, and
then continue on to the next movement. Doing say 6-8 resistance
exercises and in between (30 seconds of aerobics) for let's say
3 sets. Now these 3 sets are without resting you are continually
moving for roughly 35 minutes.

Let me give you an example: Let's use weights. 1}.10 reps of
lunges, then run in place. 2} 10 reps of squats, then run in
place. 3}.10 reps of bicep curls, now run in place. 4} 10 reps
of dips or pushups, now run in place. You can choose any exercise
you want just hit all major bodyparts. Like I said choose 6-8
resistance exercises and 30 seconds of aerobics and do at least
3 sets alternating. This is fat burning exercise.

Believe me when I tell you this is not for the faint of heart.
You will be breathing heavily quickly. The beauty is it saves
time and cuts workout time in half. When I first tried this I
did make it thru the 3 sets but it wasn't easy. If you have to
stop do so. Catch a breadth and then complete it. You will
gradually improve as you keep doing this exercise protocol.

Now for the people who don't have weights at home or do not want
to do this at their local workout establisment, or are just
looking for a change of pace, I have found the perfect
alternative. A complete system for under $50. For men and women.
You get a 3 cable color system for tension, a video to follow
along,a manual, and travel bag. It's very portable. And the
workout you get in 35 minutes is fabulous. The name of this
product is {BODYLASTICS}. You should really check this out.

When I am pressed for time and want a killer workout this is
what I use. So I get both resistance and cardio in (1) 35
minute workout. I highly recommend this product for people who
want a gym in a bag. Excellent for people who travel. Give it a
try and please let me know what you think.
