Isometric Burn Workout
I was going to do this workout last week, and on Thursday morning I realized that I overtrained my body a lot and I needed to take several days off. I’ve already written an article about avoiding overtraining, and I am going to write another one with more detail. More exercise does not mean better results and if you overtrain your body will break down muscle!
I decided to switch things up a bit, from now one I am going alternate the day where I will focus more on lower or upper body, but I will always include dynamic movement of a whole body.
Today’s workout was focused on the lower body, booty, legs, calves and abs and this workout was seriously one of the hardest I’ve done in a long time. This routine included isometrics mixed in with interval training as well as a time challenge. During the intervals there were no breaks so get ready to sweat and burn!
