No doubt you’ve heard this phrase before because it’s relevant and powerful in every area of life: “Work smarter not harder.”
You wouldn’t work more hours for the same amount of money, so why would you workout longer in a way that produces a lesser result?
As a fitness professional for the past 17 years, I’ve seen it over and over again in a gym: the cardio machine people head to their machine of choice for 45 minutes to an hour. The upper body people (usually guys) do their same curls and bench press routine. Yogis go to yoga.
All of this is fine. There’s no judgement here. But if the goal is a combination of health, a lean body, confidence, stamina, strength, and flexibility, there’s a better and more efficient way.
Traditional workouts tend to take 60-90 minutes to get through all parts of a circuit including cardio or something like a yoga class. I believe ALL forms of fitness, like yoga, are totally viable and should certainly be incorporated.
