LIFESTYLE LETTER

Happy New Year! HAPPY NEW YEAR! It's officially t-minus two  more years until a new decade (time fly's, doesn't it?) Instead of a new year's resolution this year, (which statistics show that a whopping 8% of Americans actually keep), maybe try making and setting personal goals? Breaking goals down into weekly, then monthly goals can help keep you on track and organized. What do you want to make your goal this year? Is it working on your fitness? Traveling more? Reading more books? Don't just keep your goals to yourself. Tell others about them. Write them down; I have found that these practices will help you hold yourself more accountable for them. It will make your goals seem more "real".

This edition will cover this new trending topic, along with several other newbies you probably haven't heard of.   As our community continues to grow, more homes become available to purchase in our wonderful city. In this edition we cover an Open House presented by The Stacey Feltman Group in the beautiful bustling community of Hollyhock. The Stacey Feltman Group is one of Frisco's prominent real estate groups that offer purchasing/selling of luxury homes.  No matter what your goals are this year, we wish you the best in working towards, and achieving them.

INDEPENDENT LIVING • ASSISTED LIVING • MEMORY CARE


FIT + FABULOUS IN FRISCO WHY CROSS TRAINING IS ALL THE RAGE “ARE YOU DOING CARDIO OR WEIGHTS TODAY?” This is a common question you’ll hear among gym-goers. But it doesn’t have to be either/or. In fact, combining cardio with strength training is an excellent way to get a full-body workout that increases your caloric output, torches fat, and builds muscle. Shifting between different exercises and equipment with little rest in between maximizes your workout.  While cross training certainly isn’t a new concept, it seems to have reached much more popularity recently. Perhaps it’s because it is an efficient, yet highly effective workout, and most of us don’t have hours upon hours to spend at the gym each day.  There are many ways to integrate cross training into your workout regimen. You can incorporate strength-training circuits within your favorite cardio activity. For example, if you are an avid runner, you could do 30-second treadmill sprints followed by 15 push-ups and/or renegade rows (with 30 seconds rest between) for a total of 15 minutes. The same can be said for cyclists. You can alternate between 2-minute spin bursts and 15 clean and presses.  There are also many classes out there, and even gyms for that matter, that are based on cross training methods.  At Lifetime Fitness in Plano, there are a variety of classes offered that integrate strength and cardio training for a full body workout; H.I.I.T. (high intensity interval training), TRX (total body conditioning extreme), INSANITY Live, and our Alpha TEAM training just to name a few.  While these formats differ depending on the class, instructor, and equipment, the concept is essentially the same:  cardio interval and strength training circuits for a total-body workout, giving you the most bang for your buck. H.I.I.T. is one of my personal favorite workout formats. As a fitness instructor, I give my class a combination of heart pumping cardio (think burpees, tuck jumps, plyometric squats and lunges), while also hitting every  single muscle group with strength training (think deadlifts, overhead lunges, and push-up variations).  We alternate between quick 20- second drills and longer one-minute circuits with very little rest in between.  The moves are always different so that we are challenging our muscles in new ways, leading to potentially greater fat burn and accelerated weight loss.  12

Frisco Life | January 2018


If you don’t have a full hour to spend in the gym, here’s a H.I.I.T. workout that’ll help you torch calories and build strength in half the time. TABATA STYLE: 20 SECOND WORK, 10 SECONDS REST, 8 ROUNDS 1. SINGLE LEG DEADLIFTS, ALTERNATING LEGS EACH SET

Hold weighted bar with hands slightly wider than shoulders. Position the bar in front of upper thighs, with arms straight. Lift right leg slightly so your foot is just off the floor. Slowly lower the bar to ankle.

2. BANDED SIDE TO SIDE TOUCHDOWNS

01 02

Place the band just above your knees. Reach fingertips down to opposite toes, bending your knees, keeping core tight, and spine neutral. Explode up and repeat on other side.

45 SECONDS REST 1 MINUTE DRILLS: 2 ROUNDS 1. OH LUNGES, ALTERNATING LEGS

Hold weighted bar over your head with feet positioned shoulder width apart and slight bend in the knees. Keep the weighted bar directly overhead in line with the shoulder joint and take a big step forward into deep lunge position.

2. MEDICINE BALL PUSH-UPS (ALTERNATE HAND ON BALL)

01 02 03

Part 1 - Start in plank or push-up position, with one hand on the medicine ball and one hand on the floor. Keep feet spread fairly wide for stability, back flat, and hips down. Keeping body straight, bend elbows as you lower chest

3. MEDICINE BALL SKATERS

Hold medicine ball at stomach level, with feet shoulder width apart. Hop or step to the right on your right leg, swinging your left leg behind your right and reaching the medicine ball down to your left “floated” foot

45 SECONDS REST TABATA STYLE: 20 SECOND WORK, 10 SECONDS REST, 8 ROUNDS 1. TRX  KNEE PULLS

Put feet in TRX handles, shoe laces down (heels up). Walk the hands out so that you are in a perfect plank position; body one straight line, hands directly under shoulders, and core tight. Drive both knees simultaneously up to chest.

01 02 03

2. TRX AIR SQUATS

Hold onto the TRX handles with your arms extended and your feet slightly in front of your body, with weight shifted back. Perform deep squat with arms extended as you explode off the ground. Push downward with arms as you jump.

45 SECONDS REST, FOLLOWED BY 45 SECONDS OF BOX JUMP 3. BOX JUMP

Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, at a comfortable distance from the box. Drop into quarter squat, then quickly extend your hips, swing your arms, and push feet off the floor to propel yourself onto the box. Control the landing

As with any workout, always remember to warm up at the beginning, and stretch at the end for at least 5-10 minutes. Neglecting stretching can lead to injury and slower recovery. It’s important to keep our muscles long, lean and limber. Check the schedule at Lifetime Fitness Plano to try one of our awesome classes!
