LFcodes_200x395.pngWe all know the key to a well-rounded workout regimen is muscle confusion, but what about when your confusion begins with how to properly use the equipment?

But fear not, fellow exerciser, because now there’s an answer to your workout worries: LFcodes.

6.25.13TakeaSwim.jpgIf you're looking for a break from high-impact exercise like running and plyometrics, add a day or two of swimming laps to your fitness routine. Whether you’re cross-training, training for a triathlon or looking for an exercise that’s easy on the joints, a pool workout may be just what you need.

Cardio: Swimming requires deep breathing, which improves circulation and helps you to develop your aerobic base.  You’ll notice your heart rate increase from the rhythmic breathing and range of motion. Deep breathing also promotes healthy blood pressure levels.

It’s finally summer and adults and kids alike are hitting the court for a pick-up game of basketball with friends, neighbors or coworkers. Depending on the intensity of your game, basketball can be a great total body workout with all the benefits of a cardio session at the gym. You don’t have to be a pro to play, but there are a few things you can do to improve your game and get more out of court time.

Strength Training: Shooting the basketball involves chest and shoulder muscles. If you haven’t shot a ball in a few months your muscles will be talking after your first game. Start doing pushups on a regular basis to strengthen your shooting muscles. Begin with 10 and work up to 3 sets of 20 each day. If traditional pushups are too difficult, start on your knees and work up to performing them from a full plank position.
