it's all one sided full body workout

As a mom of 5 girls, I find I am constantly seeking balance in my life. With a hectic schedule, I am always looking for ways to balance my daily schedule. It got me to thinking about balance in my workouts. It is easy to develop imbalances (right/left asymmetries) as a result of past injuries or just because you have a naturally dominant side. When you perform a bilateral exercise, your stronger side compensates by taking on more of the load than your weaker side. By performing exercises that challenge one side of your body at a time (unilateral exercises) you prevent muscle imbalances from developing, improve your core strength, challenge your brain (your nervous system builds new brain synapses) and prevent injuries. What’s not to love about that?!

Get ‘er done full body workout

Resistance training is such an important part of any exercise routine because it is the one thing that allows you to build lean muscle. Why do we like lean muscle, you ask. Well, for me its two fold; one-muscle is metabolically active so your metabolism gets a boost and helps you burn fat (yippee!) and two-muscles help keep you strong for all your daily functional activities. It’s like we say, HEALTHY LIFE, HAPPY LIFE! Total body workouts are always a winner for me because I am hitting all my major muscle groups in one workout. You throw in strength/resistance training with some cardio and abs and you have hit the trifecta!
