Every once in awhile, I’ll come across a workout channel or website that I really enjoy. Even though I work out at the gym almost everyday, I still like the option of doing workouts at home. Some mornings I will put on a Barre3 workout and go through one of their routines. They have so many options. There at 10, 30, and 60 minutes options. There are workouts with and without props.
Many Americans do not exercise enough and have sedentary jobs as well. The CDC states:
“Key Guidelines for Adults
All adults should avoid inactivity. Some physical activity is better than none, and adults who participate in any amount of physical activity gain some health benefits.
For substantial health benefits, adults should do at least 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 minutes) a week of moderate-intensity, or 75 minutes (1 hour and 15 minutes) a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity, or an equivalence combination of moderate- and vigorous-intensity aerobic activity. Aerobic activity should be performed in episodes of at least 10 minutes, and preferably, it should be spread throughout the week.
For additional and more extensive health benefits, adults should increase their aerobic physical activity to 300 minutes (5 hours) a week of moderate-intensity, or 150 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity, or an equivalence combination of moderate- and vigorous-intensity activity. Additional health benefits are gained by engaging in physical activity beyond this amount.
Adults also should do muscle-strengthening activities that are moderate- or high-intensity and involve all major muscle groups on 2 or more days a week, as these activities provide additional health benefits.”
Barre3 is a great way for everyone to get in those recommended minutes of exercise. It can be done at home and there are modifications for most exercises if there are joint or mobility issues. Starting on June 18, they are offering free workouts sent to your inbox. All you have to do is register online here.
