Incorporate Strength Training

While you may spend a lot of time engaged in cardio workouts, you might want to incorporate strength straining for better results. You’ve probably heard it before, but more muscle helps your body to burn more calories at rest. While cardio is great for burning calories and improving cardiovascular health and endurance, strength training can take your training to the next level. If you’re a runner, weight training can strengthen your core and hip-stabilizing muscles and may prevent injury — try adding some lunges, squats, and planks to your workouts, for example.

If you find that you are in a fitness rut and not getting the results that you’d like, consider doing some weight training a few times a week!
