I hope you all had a great weekend! We went for a quick overnight camping trip this weekend. It was great. We did some paddle boarding, fishing, hiking, and of course ate some s’mores!
Today I am starting off the week with a killer workout! I wanted to change my workout format a bit last week so I put together this workout and boy was it a hit. It was challenging in different ways. This workout can easily be done at home or at the gym.
For this workout you will be focusing on as many reps as possible in the time given. Set a timer and go!
Always start your workout with a warm up. I always start with a dynamic warm up to get the joints active and moving. Static stretching (when you stretch and hold the muscle) should be done at the end of your workout.
Rest when needed between each round.
Always cool down and stretch following your workout. I like to include some yoga stretches like:
- The Cobra
- Downward Facing Dog (pedaling out the feet)
- Forward Folds
- Child’s Pose
Have a great week!
It’s almost Friday!!!! I am so excited for a long weekend and the last week of school next week. I really enjoy my summers spending time with my friends and family. Summers are so much fun around our house. So I am looking forward to kicking off summer June 2nd! This weekend we are going to Portland to visit my dad and hang out with some of our friends. I love Portland. I love to shop in Portland, eat ice cream at Salt and Straw and browse the books at Powell’s.
Before the long weekend I wanted to get in a quick workout. This is a 30 minute boot camp workout that can be done anywhere. Grab some weights and set a timer for 30 minutes. Try to complete as many rounds as possible. You will be sweaty so don’t forget a towel and some water. I hope you all have a great weekend. Happy Memorial Day!
Start this workout with a cardio warm up. You can jog, bike, use the elliptical or row for 2-3 minutes. If you don’t have access to any machines you can do a combination of jogging in place, jumping jacks, high knees, and butt kickers to get warmed up.
After the warm up, set your time for 30 minutes and complete each exercise for 30 seconds repeat 4-5 times until the 30 minutes is up. Be sure to include a cool down and stretch following the workout.
- Burpee with a push up
- Overhead Tricep Extensions with weights
- Squat Jumps
- Upright Rows
- X Jumps*
- Hamstring Curls on a fit ball*
- Scissor Abs or Any Ab Exercise
*Ball Leg Curl: Start by laying on the floor with your feet resting on top of the ball. Your ankles will be resting on top of the ball. This is where you will start your curl. Lift your hips into a glute bridge, roll the ball in as close as you can contracting your hamstrings. Return to the starting position.
* X-Jumps: Reach down between your legs in a wide squat jump position and jump off the floor into an x in the air. If you need a modification alternating squats or jumping jacks will work as well.
Feel free to change or modify the workout to meet your needs.
