The amount of rest time between sets could be an important variable affecting strength workout results, with optimum rest periods ranging from 30 seconds to five minutes, depending on the goal.
Healthier Choices: Summer Sanders' Daily Routine
Four Olympic medals may have cemented her spot in swimming history, but Summer Sanders has only begun to make a splash. After retiring from swimming post-Barcelona Games in '92, Sanders moved on to television, hosting Nickelodeon's Figure It Out (yes, the show that slimed contestants!) and NBA Inside Stuff. Today, as a health and fitness advocate, Sanders is dedicated to helping people make "easy choices for a better life" (such a greatist, right?). After running the Nike Women’s Marathon for Team Safeway, Greatist caught up with Summer to talk perfect workouts, milkshakes, and being an active mom and role model.
Are you a greatist, too? Tell us about your #imagreatist routine in the comments below.
