Sweat: Exercise Detox!

I am really for February. January is always such a long and depressing month: the days are long, and the excitement of the new year fades with each past dated party invite. February, on the other hand is just a baby of a month where no subject is too taboo. I'm excited. For the month of February my friend and I are attempting a detox of sorts. One month of no alcohol, and no junk foods. One month, just to restart!

Exercise is an important component of any detoxification process. Aerobic exercises helps release toxins through the breath, and through perspiration. Aerobics are my guilty pleasure. I love the high energy. The Tracy Anderson Method combines an aerobic dance routine with a muscle toning routine to redesign the body. 

Dance Cardio, and Urban Rebounding are among the best exercises for body detoxification. Jumping on the mini tramp allows an exerciser to work out at a higher gravitational force witch helps to strengthen and rebuild muscle tissue.  While dance cardio requires an element of mental engagement to follow along.

Follow along, to this quick 15 minute Cardio and muscle toning routine!

Here are some detox benefits of urban rebounding and dance cardio:
  •  Strengthens the glandular system
  •  Helps to increase circulation and oxygen flow.
  •  Conditions and strengthens the heart which allows the resting heart to beat less often.
  •  It provides an extremely effective 'no impact' exercise
  •  It increases metabolism which assists the body in burning more calories.
  •  Increases the performance of both the heart and the circulatory system
  •  Stimulates the flow of lymph fluid through the lymphatic system
  •  Enhances digestion, relaxation, sleep patterns, nerve impulses and muscle fiber
