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!
Leg day–ah, it brings a smile to my face.
I’m pretty well known for giving tough leg workouts. A lot of my female clients look forward to leg days with me after seeing their progress and results! So you’re in the right place if you want to tone your legs and get some nice definition 🙂
Now, don’t worry–this isn’t going to kill you. We are going to do some leg exercises that’ll create a nice foundation for your legs to build of off and get stronger from. These aren’t all exactly beginner exercises, either (it’s a bit of everything!), which is good if you’re trying to get out of beginner stages! This’ll give you a taste of what else is out there in the fitness realm.
I know how hard it can be to workout the legs at home sometimes, so I am giving a full leg workout, at home, that you can do with a couple bands/weighted items!
As if plank alone wasn’t enough, today I am going to share with you a plank workout! Planks are great at building the core while working your total body. With these plank variations we will be working the WHOLE core. It’s a quick workout that will leave your abs crying.
While planks are pretty hard when you’re first starting off, regular planks can get a little.. boring. So working on plank variations is always a fun challenge and will make your workout more interesting.
We’ll be working out the whole core. This workout can be for any fitness level, as all the exercises can be modified on the knees.
Have fun! 🙂
Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful start of the week, and got some good workouts in! I was able to do both a back workout and a sprint workout on Monday and realized during my sprints that beginners probably didn’t know how to start sprinting. Or why to start sprinting.
Sprinting promotes fat loss and keeps muscles
Since sprinting takes such a toll on your body, and it’s energy systems, you burn more calories in less time. This means that if you’re short on time, you can get a quick workout in and reap some good benefits.
I get that sprinting can look intimidating (you’re running as fast as you can for the most part), but it’s always worth trying new things. And this can help you to reach your goals faster than you’d think 😉
Make sure you eat a snack beforehand and allow it some time to digest–nothing worse than puking on a track, am I right? (Thankfully haven’t been there)
Let’s do this!
I’ve created a little pin that has everything you need so it’s all in one place for your workout 😉
Upper body workouts become an addiction after you start to see your muscles peeking out. I used to passionately dislike upper body days; legs were so much easier and I could push myself the hardest through them. But, upper body is very difficult for most women at the beginning of their fitness journey. This is because we do not have the same hormones our male counterparts have, who can almost automatically do pull ups towards the beginning of their journey, which stinks >:( BUT, never fear, we can totally get there! I love to work with my clients on progressing to pushups and pullups, and in order to achieve those goals we have to work out the whole upper body. So let’s start with a back workout 🙂
