EXERCISES THAT WORK TOGETHER

When we workout, it is so easy to get stuck in a routine rut. Whether it’s running or weightlifting, everyone has their favourite. But it’s important to make sure you keep your routine varied in order to ensure that your body really responds to the exercise, and to avoid injury from over training the same muscle groups.

So here are ONE LDN’s tips for workouts which complement each other, to make sure that you get the most from what you put in:

Swimming & Weight Training

Swimming is an aerobic low-impact sport, and therefore is the perfect ying to weighlifting’s yang, where weights are all about putting the body under tension in order to grow the muscles. Swimming encourages blood flow which in turn helps to eliminate lactic acid build-up, common for weightlifters.

Spinning & Pilates

Pilates focuses on toning the core strength as well as balance, which is vital if you want to be successful when it comes to spinning. Pilates will also help to loosen any tightness in your legs so as to help ensure speedy recovery on your rest days, and maximise your performance.

Cycling & Running

Cycling works out the core and the legs, building up power as you increase resistance. Stronger leg muscles have a direct impact on your running speed, so cycling and running can be a fantastic way to cross train.

Yoga & Running

Running is a high impact sport, and sometimes the repetitive movement involved with running can create an imbalance in the body, Yoga counteracts these factors with stretching movements which alleviates tension in the back and knees and elongates your tissue fibres.
