Stay in Shape this Winter! My Winter Workout at Central park and Benefits of Strength Training

Central Park Winter Workout

Central Park Winter Workout: Michael Gonzalez-Wallace Author of Super Body, Super Brain shows how you can stay in shape in the winter

Are you getting ready for the Holidays? I am! I am flying next Sunday to my beloved Spain and spend some quality time with my family. New York City is a phenomenal city but sometimes gets really cold in the winter so that is why it is important to stay active in the winter. I normally combine my Super Body, Super Brain Workout with some cardiovascular training and circuit training including resistance, plyometrics. One of the most discussed questions i get asked in my speeches is this one: If i don’t use weights is it strength training? Yes. Is Yoga strength training? Its everything involving muscular resistance either with additional weight or your own body weight Is running strength training? Yes! I wanted to share a definition of Strength training with all of you:

a method of improving muscular strength by gradually increasing the ability to resist force through the use of free weights, machines, or the person’s own body weight. Strength training sessions are designed to impose increasingly greater resistance, which in turn stimulates development of muscle strength to meet the added demand.
