Workout Wednesday: Full Body Tabata Workout

Another Workout Wednesday Link up! I’m linking up with these great ladies to bring you another workout this week. And also these ladies! Such a good time to get such great workouts!

I’ve been LOVING teaching my fitness classes on Mondays and Wednesdays. This is almost exactly like the class I teach, but in shorter intervals. This particular circuit works the arms with strength moves, and the legs with strength/cardio moves. It is definitely a super sweaty one. Love it!

Each time through the circuit should take about 6 minutes. You can choose how many times you want to repeat the circuit based on how long you want to workout. You have probably seen most of these exercises before, but if not, look them up on YouTube OR ask me below in the comments. 

Have a great day!

Thoughtful Thursday: On Food & Training

I love food… I could eat it all day, really. I could. There’s not much food I wouldn’t eat. Vegetables aren’t my favorite, but I’m learning to make them in ways that I like them.

However, despite all this, people try to make eating so darn complicated. Truthfully- it shouldn’t be that hard…RIGHT!? (And yes I realize, the actual science & nutrition might be more complicated than I’m making it out to be, but to us average joes, hear me out!)

It helps to always look at food this way:

food

Food is the fuel we need to live our daily lives, workout hard, and smash our goals. 

The simple rules I try to live by:

 

1. Try not to eat 100% junk all the time. Living by the 80/20 rule is a pretty good guideline.

2. Eat some fruit and vegetables every now and then. Incorporate them into each meal you have. Soon enough it will be habit.

3. Eat when you are hungry and stop when you aren’t. Over stuffing yourself does not feel good, try not to scarf your food down so you can pay attention to the signals your body is  giving you. 

4. Treat yo’self. (I miss parks & rec already). You work hard right? A treat isn’t going to hurt you. A piece of pizza will not derail your diet, and you will not gain 60 pounds in one night. What hurts you even more is depriving yourself of food you crave and then going overboard one night and feeling terrible. 

That’s it. That’s all I strive to do when dealing with food. Lately I’ve been lifting some HEAVY weight and really power lifting, because of this, I’ve been super hungry! Therefore I’ve been eating more. Work out hard and eat more? I’m good with that. I’ve been trying to get in plenty of protein, healthy carbs…but there’s always room for a treat every now and then :-)

This has to be my new favorite!

Workout Wednesday

It’s Wild Workout Wednesday! I’m linking up with these great ladies to bring you another workout this week.

Do you ever feel like just a quick circuit workout? Honestly- most days this is how I’m feeling at the gym. I love quick effective circuits. My husband and I usually plan one for ourselves to do at the gym and we have been finding them quite effective lately, i.e., we are super sore!

Here is one we rotate in to our weekly workouts. We used kettle bells for the strength moves, but they could easily be done with dumbbells, or no weights at all!

I really like to alternate strength & cardio moves to allow my heart rate to come down, only to spike it up again. These always leave me sweaty like I ran 5 miles, so I’d say they’re effective! :)

If you do it, let me know! Happy Wednesday!

My March Bootcamp

Hey there! I hope you are enjoying my new site! The last couple days I’ve been moving my blog over to become self hosted. I did everything myself-which took me a little longer than I thought haha! BUT somehow, someway I did it. I’m of course going to be working on it some more, because I need to tweak it here and there.

Anyways- I’m here today to announce my brand new 6 Week Bootcamp Program that will begin on March 2nd. I’m SO excited to be offering this in a group format. The group format gives everyone so much support and motivation, instead of you doing it on your own.

I post videos and workouts/meals in the morning and then you can complete the workout as you have time. None of my workouts require equipment, so if you have room to jump around- you are good to go! 
If you are interested, please contact me below so we can chat more!
 

Workout Wednesday- TRX Tabata

Another Workout Wednesday! I really love linking up with these girls! I get some great workout ideas from them! 10912598_10152638558488785_954023868_n Yesterday I worked out a TRX Tabata that really had me sweating. I have loved doing more and more with TRX, Using your body weight is an awesome thing. This Tabata uses 3 different moves for legs, core, and a cardio strength move. I like combining these types of movements to mix it up and keep my body guessing. Untitled (16)

Sorry YouTube is refusing to upload my video today! If it ever happens I will update with it later. This was a great sweaty workout and my core is really feeling it this morning. The lunges are a great movement to really work on the legs and glutes! Enjoy- if you try it out, let me know!

This circuit really got my upper back and shoulders burning. I didn’t take much rest at all between each circuit so it was more difficult for me. If you want to take a break between each set that is fine! Modifications to your abilities are key! :)

If you try it, let me know! Have a great Wednesday!
