Between weight training and yoga, I love working out!
I don’t normally post blogs or information about my workouts but lately I’ve got a lot of women asking how I stay fit. And since I’m stepping up my workouts in the gym over the next week as I’ll be heading to Jamaica and spending 24-7 in my bikini, I thought I would share with you my current workout routine.
I don’t really have a specific workout regime. I train my legs at least twice a week, upper body once a week and sometimes fit in a day or two of yoga or another full body weight training day. I NEVER do hours of cardio. I lift weights, I workout fast and hard and I get in and out of the gym in under 45 minutes. The way I lift weights is my cardio.
HOWEVER… I sometimes do a HIIT interval for 4 minutes at the end of my workouts (otherwise known as Tabata training). That’s about as much ‘cardio’ as I’ll do. I want to be strong, toned, tight and fit and this is what works for me.
If you are new to working out, go slow. I don’t expect you to lift as heavy as I do, but I do encourage you to challenge yourself.
If you don’t have access to a gym and can’t do some of these exercises below, fit in some lunges, and do some extra squats or add in some hip bridges. Go at a pace that works for you!
I always finish my workouts with a quick ab routine. Today I held a plank for 30 seconds, then side plank for 30 seconds (both sides) and in-and-outs on the bench for 30 seconds. Then repeated this sequence.
I would suggest image googling some of these workouts if you are unsure what they are.
Going forward, I’ll share videos and give at home workout routines. If you’re interested in more blog posts featuring workouts and I get a lot of feedback, I’ll continue to share and help you out as much as I can!
Enjoy today’s workout!
