Get your game on-add resistance to your training for upper-body and lower-body conditioning. Progress through three levels of resistance from light to medium to heavy. Then finish up each intense cardio workout with deep stretching for a balanced workout regimen. Resistance bands are the perfect addition and a favorite of fitness enthusiasts due to their versatility, joint comfort and ability to target muscle groups through controllable, constant tension. Tip: as you incorporate resistance bands into your routine, work out from a standing position whenever possible. This engages your core allowing you to exercise more joints and muscles throughout your body.
