What Does An Liver Body Type Mean to Me?
Exercises For The Liver Body Type
When you’re planning your exercise routine, make sure it incorporates plenty of cardio like jogging, using an elliptical machine, and walking fast are all examples of aerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise activates your immune system, helps your heart pump blood more efficiently, and increases your stamina over time.
Research is showing that Interval Training (Anaerobic) is the best way to condition your heart and burn fat. So this means instead of jogging, walk steadily for an hour and alternate short bursts of high-intensity exercise with gentle recovery periods. This type of exercise, also known as burst training, can dramatically improve your cardiovascular fitness and fat-burning capabilities.
Rounding out your exercise program with a strength training routine will ensure that you’re really optimizing the possible health benefits of a regular exercise program.
Core strengthening exercises are also a great idea. Your body has 29 core muscles located mostly in your back, abdomen and pelvis. This group of muscles provides the foundation for movement throughout your entire body, and strengthening them can help protect and support your back, make your spine and body less prone to injury and help you gain greater balance and stability. Exercise programs like Pilates and yoga are another good idea for strengthening core muscles.
Once you join the program there is extended information about this in the last module so that you can transition into your body type eating plan 🙂
