It’s the Intensity, Stupid
February 25, 2019
Any exercise, either with or without equipment or machine, can give you the workout of your life. It all comes down to intensity. From jumping jacks to the elliptical; from burpees to the humble stationary bike, it’s all about work in, work out! If it’s too easy, you’re not working hard enough.
Spinning every weekday
