Fit Tip: Add Plyometrics to Strength Training

I'm constantly looking for ways to make my workouts more efficient and varied, and when I come across something that works, it makes me even more excited for my next workout. A workout that inspires me to work out again — yes, please!

Lately I've been mixing plyometrics into my strength training regimen and it has been a fun change to my typical workouts. Adding plyometrics will allow your body to burn more calories, just as it does when you add intervals of jumping or skipping to a walking workout.

Integrate jumping exercises like jump squats, jumping lunges, jump roping, or good old jumping jacks after you've finished a set of whatever you're working on with weights. Jumping intervals of 30 seconds to one minute will do the trick.
