YOU CAN HAVE A FIT AND HEALTHY BODY BY FOLLOWING THE FITNESS TRENDS SUCH AS AERIAL YOGA, TABATA, AND BARRE-FUSION.

Now every sports branch has a concept within each. We researched the most popular new fitness trends around the world for the Raillife readers. While aerial yoga stands out as the favorite exercise of Hollywood stars, the focus of the concepts named tabata and barre-fusion is making a large deal of muscles in your body active at the same time. If you want to make your body more athletic through short and non-tiring exercises then definitely take a look at these concepts.

Aerial yoga injects happiness
Aerial fitness classes where traditional yoga positions are executed in the air with the help of circus hammocks are especially popular in America. Aerial yoga, which has quickly became popular with the attention of world stars such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Mariah Carey and Britney Spears, promises a different type of excitement to the targeted masses.

In the aerial yoga concept, which stands out as an exercise method that targets to find the body’s orientation and to rearrange its energy with the power of gravity by the aid of a hammock, there are moves that contain advanced acrobatics, yoga asanas (yoga poses), dance, pilates, and meditation. Aerial yoga is a technique enriched by the support of these disciplines and using gravity to its advantage by gaining more flexibility with less energy that makes you earn more power and balance and makes you experience the inexpressible feeling of flight.

The benefits of aerial yoga are countless. It increases your flexibility and muscle power. It develops your coordination ability. It cleanses you of stress and relieves you. It stretches out your spine and rests your nervous system. It creates strength to store energy by clearing your energy. Thanks to this, your brain wave frequency dimensions, happiness and relief hormones reach a maximum level.

Your metabolism accelerates with the tabata protocol
One of the most conspicuous new sports concepts is Tabata. You use energy for a maximum of 20 seconds and rest 10 seconds repeating this for 8 times. Research shows you can burn 15 calories a minute doing these types of exercises. When this 4 minute fat burning exercise is executed successfully you will reach a result at least 4 times better than 20 minutes you spend on a treadmill. The Tabata protocol stands out as a ‘High Intensity Interval Training’ (HIIT). This protocol developed in 1996 in Japan by Dr. Izumi Tabata, bases itself on the fundamental of working for 20 and resting for 10 seconds.  

A workout done with the Tabata protocol increases the speed of your metabolism and your pulse no matter what the exercise is. Because it is an intensive exercise, your body needs to work more to adapt and follow the exercise. During these exercises, your heart starts pumping more blood. A quartet exercise system made up of 20 push-ups, squats, planks, and burpees is recommended for a tabata starting session. So, after 20 push-ups, squats, planks and burpees you have to rest 10 seconds in between each of them. Don’t forget to warm up for 5-10 minutes before starting the workout and doing stretches after its done.

Barre-fusion strengthens your leg muscles
Barre, which was born from the idea of exercising while holding on to a ballet bar, is one of the most popular fitness trends recently. The last trend is fusion: a combination of barre, fast fitness and some fun to make this interesting exercise more exciting and efficient.

Barre fusion offers much more than exercising while holding on to a ballet bar for those who want to burn calories with its quick moves that focus on strength, balance, and flexibility. You have the chance to activate every muscle in your body individually within the scope of barre-fusion. It is beneficial especially for women who want to have thinner legs to focus on this concept. For example, try standing up while resting your back on the ballet bar. Lift one of your legs while making it so that your toes point forward. When you lower and lift your body with your leg that is on the ground, you activate all of the muscles in your legs. The Plie move is probably the most famous ballet move. The most important reason to that is that it works your buttocks, quadriceps, and your hamstrings at the same time. Having a muscular and fit body is no longer a dream by doing the exercises in Barre-fusion workouts.
