Here are five ways to rev up your summer exercise routine:
1. Pumping iron
>> Strength training not only increases muscular strength, but also improves quality of life and increases metabolism.
2. Doing “one hundreds” and “downward dogs”
>> A number of innovative instructors have combined Pilates and yoga positions for a fusion of mind/body workouts.
3. Basic training at boot camps
>> Boot camp franchises cater to the individual who wants their fitness served with a dose of fresh air and military-style instruction.
>> A popular 1970s nonimpact activity, it involves bouncing on a mini-trampoline.
5. Channelling your inner stripper
>> L.A. and New York’s hottest (and most daring) workouts include pole dancing, chair dancing, and cardio striptease.
