The Internet is a treasure trove of information and content. Here’s a sampling of health and wellness related items that caught my eye this week. Enjoy!
We all want to know that we're making progress in our workouts. To that end before and after pictures have historically been a valuable tool. But do they cause more harm than good?
Boost your cardiovascular capacity and shorten your workout time with High Intensity Interval Training.
Great things can happen when we take ownership of our path by recognizing that we are responsible for our experiences.

I've mentioned this before, but how you use your time away from the gym dictates your progress as much as any workout program.

Getting after it with some Treadmill Sprints

Sprints are a great way to incorporate HIIT into your routine. Here I'm using the treadmill and doing a 15 second sprint with 45 second recovery. If you don't feel comfortable hopping on/off at a high rate of speed, you can increase the incline and reduce the belt speed. You'll still work at a max output while varying your training stimulus. www.vitalifit.com #wednesdaymotivation #hiit #hiitworkout #treadmill #treadmillworkout #treadmillrunning #sprint #vitalifit #educate #engage #empower #fitness #workout #workoutroutine #workoutmotivation @excellenceinexercise
