5 Benefits of a Full-Body Workout for Strength Training, Bethany, Connecticut

Strength training isolated muscle groups is a great way to target problem areas and carve out the body you want, but it’s time-consuming and not always practical. Let’s face it—most people don’t have time to work out every day. But a full-body workout allows you to multitask at the gym. Performing functional movements that target several muscle groups at once will help you tone up and slim down faster and more efficiently. CrossFit Bethany provides a range of CrossFit® classes in New Havein County, CT, with a focus on strength training and a full body workout to keep the body challenged and deliver results.

Interested in transforming your exercise routine and body? Here’s how a full-body approach can benefit you.

5 Benefits of a Full-Body Workout

1. Burns Calories Efficiently

It’s no secret that full-body exercise burns more fat than cardio alone. The combined aerobic and strength training in a full-body workout helps torch calories faster than doing cardio and weight training separately.

2. Builds Muscle Consistently

Isolated workouts leave the rest of your muscles idle while you focus on one specific group. However, movements that work out every muscle allow you to be consistent, never neglecting a single muscle.

3. Combines Weight Loss & Strength

4. Delivers Results in Less Time

The efficiency of a full-body workout means you can achieve the same results in less time. You can get a complete calorie-burning, muscle-building workout in just 30 minutes.

5. Offers Versatility

Strength training your entire body incorporates workouts like weight lifting and yoga classes to build endurance, strength, and flexibility. This type of exercise regimen is designed to give you the skills and agility needed to perform a variety of physical activities. Whether you want to try biking, paddleboarding, or Pilates, full-body workouts prepare you for anything and allow you to work out anywhere.
