Kathy Smith's Matrix Workout

Story at-a-glance -

  • It is important to incorporate both aerobic exercise AND strength training into in your fitness regimen. Both types of exercise accomplish important, yet different results in your body.
  • Each pound of muscle can burn up to 50 calories per day, so it is easy to see the benefit your body can have with muscle mass and the work it does for you without you even thinking about it.
  • Well-rounded exercise programs include movements in multi planar directions such as front to back, side to side and rotational.

As well, this helps you to be strong in the tasks that you perform every day.
