  • Quick HIIT Bodyweight Routines

    We know that a home gym is not always realistic for everyone. Maybe you're not in a space yet that has the room, or maybe you just prefer paying for a monthly gym membership to swap sweat with everyone at a gym. (Too far?) Whatever the reason may be, what is certain is that sometimes there is just not enough time for either. HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) might be your solution.

    To preface this post, have you seen our blog on the benefit of just 10 minutes of exercise a day? It's true! We're not making that up. While the guidelines recommend that adults get a minimum of 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 min) of aerobic activity a week, these do not have to be consecutive hours of exercise. Gone are the days of one hour workout sessions, for now, we have HIIT! HIIT helps get all the heart-pounding benefits of cardio, without the extra time. Don't forget, the guidelines also include 2 or more days of strength training. HIIT can help you there too, both using body weight and/or equipment. Keep reading for some quick routines to start (or end) your day right!  Continue reading

    You may be wondering, what is a BODYCRAFT Jones Machine. How is it different from the traditional Smith Machine. Or thinking, I’ve used a Smith Machine for years, why change now. Stay tuned, this post will answer those thoughts and more.

    We will tell you why you should avoid a Smith Machine. We will inform you of an independent study completed on a Jones Machine vs. a Smith Machine. And finally, let you know the best way to use a Jones machine to its full advantage.

    To define a Smith Machine, it is an exercise piece similar to a power rack but the barbell is locked within the steel rails. This allows for only vertical or near- vertical motion. This makes any exercise on a Smith locked into a fixed plane, and does not allow for free weight or even free weight-type movement. Due to this main feature, the Smith often puts the body in unnatural positions. This can not only limit the benefits of the exercise, but may even cause injury. (More on this point later).

    What Makes the Jones Machine Different?
