Welcome to everyone participating in the Summer Slay!! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and doing this workout with me. I am so excited you are here! If you don’t know what the Summer Slay is, it’s 4 weeks of workouts and recipes from my girl Les over at The Balanced Berry. It’s totally free! This workout is part of week 4, but it is not too late to join. You can also do this workout even if you aren’t participating in the Summer Slay. All are welcome! Trust me, you don’t want to miss out on this awesomeness.
I am particularly excited about this full body workout because it is to the beat of the music. It’s SO MUCH fun! It’s one of my favorite ways to workout because you get lost in the music and just have fun! In the video, you will see me jam out a bit. Feel free to sing along or head bob, it’s just what happens when you are having fun during a workout!
Do the workout with me in the video below!! For your convenience, the workout and playlist are all included below the video.
Happy hump day!! It’s Workout Wednesday again already and today I have a lower body circuit for you. These are some of my MOST favorite lower body exercises, and they require ZERO equipment. Thes were the best because you can do them anywhere.
In fact, this workout I filmed while in Hawaii, you may notice the tropical background 🙂 You can take this circuit anywhere from a corner in the gym, to your living room, to the beach on vacation.
What do I need: a timer & a flat area to workout
Repeat this circuit 3 times
do each move for 45 seconds to 1 minute depending on fitness level
Plié jump squats
Backwards lunge (alternating legs)
Bowlers lunge (alternating legs)
If you do each move for a minute, this circuit will only take you 18 minutes. You will get a little cardio along with muscle toning. Do this workout 3 times this week and your legs will be ready for shorts in no time! You can use this workout alone or to compliment other exercise.
I demo/explain the exercises in the video below. Try this workout with me, the only bad workout is the one you didn’t do!
Seriously, how beautiful is this background?! I wish I could film here ALL the time. I miss Hawaii.
Thanks for joining me! What did you think of this workout? What kind of workouts would you like to see? Let me know in the comments.
Today I am sharing with you some strengthening exercises (including a plank series) that focus on core, booty and whole body. In honor of my half marathon this weekend, I’m dedicating this to runners, but this workout is for everyone!
If you are a runner these moves will not only aid in injury prevention, but will make you a stronger, faster, and more efficient runner. If you are not a runner, these are still great functional core exercises that will make you stronger and help make your regular workouts easier.
Honestly, I’ve tried a lot of foam rollers and this is my favorite for 3 reasons:
1. it is the perfect amount of firmness
2. it doesn’t loose firmness overtime because the inner circle is PVC pipe so you won’t have to be replacing the foam roller down the road
3. it is perfect size! Not too long and not too short. Easy to store and easy to take with you. What more could you ask for!
