The Sweat Scoop: June 2016


This month flew by faster than we could burpee! Check out our FHIT10 moments of June.

1. It’s no secret that HIIT workouts can whip you into shape in no time. One factor that plays a huge part in HIIT is the “afterburn effect.” SELF Magazine dishes the deets on afterburn and how it affects your body.

2. With so many fitness and nutrition buzzwords constantly thrown around, we may know a good thing when we hear it, but not necessarily what makes it good. This Greatist article explains all you need to know about one of our favorite buzzwords – antioxidants.

3. Why do you get your FHIX? To let out some pent-up aggression? To give your muscles the burn they love and deserve? How about to make more money?! reveals how HITting the gym three times a week is linked to higher pay for both men and women.

4. Just in time for Independence Day cookouts, we rounded up some of our favorite healthy summer cocktails. Get the recipes here. While you are sipping on your favorite cocktail, you may as well light up the grill and cook up some healthy veggie burgers. Check out Well + Good’s suggestions on the best frozen veggie burgers here.
