Youtube Workout Videos: My Favorites

What up y’all! Happy Friday!

There are times where I don’t feel like going to the gym at all. Yes, us Personal Trainers have our days, too. Long days and little sleep affects us just the same, and our energy levels deplete hella fast when we’ve been training others where we don’t feel like training ourselves.

Enough said, if I find myself too lazy to go to the gym after a long day, I go to one of my favorite websites–Youtube–and find a workout video that gets me sweating and feeling good!

Workout videos I like to do are very different from the workouts I make for myself–they usually involve kickboxing, pilates, HIIT and cardio (you can’t get me to do cardio willingly, mind you 😉 ).

Let’s get onto some of my favorite Youtube workout videos, which I believe will become your favorites, too!

Protein Powder: Why You Need It + What to Buy

There are affiliate links for the products I recommend. If you choose to purchase through my links, please know that I may receive some compensation for it.

What up y’all!

So you’ve probably heard one way or another that you should use protein powder, right? It’s all over Pinterest, Instagram stars promote it, and there are so many articles about protein powder and how you should have it with all of your snacks.

Let’s get some of the bulls%&* out of the way and get to some true facts you should know about protein powder, and I’ll give you some of my recommended faves below.

Protein powder will help you build muscle; NO, you aren’t going to bulk up, ladies–we don’t have the hormones to get as big as our counterparts unless we use steroids. Muscles aren’t something to be afraid of. In fact, that is what lets you looked tone and HOT! (and that’s what we all want, am I right? I know it is 😉 ).

And, to get that toned bod and nice definition, supplements like protein powder will make it easier to get there (and maintain it).

Home Gym Essentials: The Bare Minimum You Need

This post contains affiliate links.

There’s nothing better than having your own home gym! No excuses that you can’t get to the gym, because you have everything you need, right in the comfort of your own home!

Now, if you’re working out at home because you don’t like going to gyms because of all the “muscle heads” and onlookers, read my article here. There’s nothing wrong with gyms, and they have everything you would ever need in any workout you find, so don’t let others impact whether or not you go to one 🙂

Home gyms are good for when you can’t afford a gym membership, or as a supplementation to a gym. Again, gyms have everything you need, so it’s best to still go to one, but the things you can accomplish with a home gym are phenomenal.

COMFY Activewear Haul

COMFY Activewear Haul

I hate clothes shopping. Even if it’s for workout clothes. And I imagine that there are plenty other young ladies that feel the same way–they don’t want to be stuck in a clothing store only to find ONE thing after an hour search. Or is it just me? Yes? No? Oh well 🙂

SO, here are some clothes that I’d highly recommend for those that just want comfortable active wear that isn’t going to make them go nuts during a workout! There’s nothing worse than having a tight sports bra cramping your workout style.

All the clothes that I bought you can click so that you can buy them, too (isn’t that convenient? You don’t even have to go outside!). I personally found them in store, but to save the hassle of searching through rows and rows of clothes, it’s just easier to purchase them online. The links I list do not mean you have to buy them there–if you find a cheaper site, or you find them in store, go right for it! This is just to help you 🙂


Nike Womens Dri-Fit Racerback Tank Top Red M

This has become my new favorite workout tank. Maybe it’s because it kind of matches my hair (it’s hard to find clothes that flatter certain hair colors), but this tank is SO comfortable, and I love how it looks with the sports bra I’m wearing underneath.

9/10

 

Reebok Performer Singlet Shirt

I am in love with the back! It’s very pretty.

Size is M

8/10 (definitely need a different hair color, but a 10/10 if I was still blonde 😉 )

 

 

ASICS Women’s Racerback Bra, Abstract Nuage Print, Small

^^I need a L/G in order for it to fit my bust; just something to take into consideration, because I am a 34C 🙂

This is the closest sports bra I could find to the one I bought (I found this at Burlington Coat Factory for $7.99), so I am sorry that I couldn’t find this color on the web. If you can find it online please let me know so I can update it.

BUT, the one that I listed sounds exactly like the one I have, just different colors. Because it’s seamless, it’s very comfortable, and I wish they actually had different colors because I don’t have too much that matches neon. It’s always hard finding a sports bra that also looks “normal”, as there are some weird looking what-the-heck-is-this type bras that I have tried on, so it’s hard for me to find sports bras. This one is super comfortable and does not feel itchy whatsoever. I’ll probably buy more from the link above so that I have a solid black one, too.

 

I am 100% happy with what I was able to find. I did try on a lot of other tanks and sports bras, but I am very stingy on spending money on clothes. If I know I’m not going to wear it, because I’m not completely comfortable in it, then I won’t buy it. That simple. That’s why I like sharing what I find, because you’ll have some considerations when you want to buy more activewear!

Where do you buy your activewear?
