Today’s challenge…try something new, or revisit something you haven’t done in quite awhile. Maybe it’s taking that class at your gym or rec center you’ve always thought about, but never went. Maybe it’s trying a new type of workout: circuit training, yoga, Tai Chi or spinning. For me, it’s yoga. I used to go regularly a few years back. But fell behind in my practice (cause it’s a bit pricey). But, today I will do a few poses. Luckily there […]
About one week left to go!! Today’s workout is structured around a medicine ball. We’ll tackle a full body routine with a little extra resistance to help us reach our goals. Select a medicine ball that will give you some resistance…but not too much. Do 45 seconds of each of the following. Repeat the circuit 3x: Squat with overhead press Alternating forward lunges with rotation Alternating elevated pushups (under one hand, roll to the other, etc.) Supermans – hold the […]
Today is cardio day! The challenge today is 45 minutes of cardio. Your choice. You can do one activity for the full 45 minutes, or break it up. I’m going with 20 minutes on the elliptical, 10 minutes on a rower, 10 minute jog and wrap it up with 5 minutes on jump rope! Get that heart rate up fitfam!
For those of you following along at home, how are you feeling? Me…I’m beat. But the journey moves on. It’s Day 21 of my 31 Days of Fitness challenge. Today’s workout is legs and core. So get ready to sweat…and barely stand afterwards. Leg and Core Workout: **No jumping a round. Work your way down the list. Move onto the next ONLY when you’ve finished every rep 100 Lunges (50 ea leg) 100 Crunches 100 Jumping Squats 100 Russian […]
Grab your jump rope! We’re working on our skipping endurance today! Only 4 exercises, but they should effectively workout head to toe. No jump rope, or not all that coordinated? No problem. Jump as if you had one in your hands. 2 minutes of jumping rope 20 reverse lunges 10 Hindu pushups 10 plank builders (low plank to high plank, high plank to low plank = 1) x5
Day 19 is here! Today is an activity of your choice. Do something you love. Or try something new. Go for a run. Try a yoga class. Find a fitness related activity and commit to at least 20 minutes of movement today. Today, I’ll get my ass kicked by Wilkins Santiago with a 60 minute boxing conditioning workout. Leaves me in a puddle of sweat and barely making it to the car.
Let’s start this day off right! How about a nice circuit to get the upper body and core fired up? Let’s get to it. 30 second hight plank 30 second low plank 30 second mountain climbers 30 second pushups 30 second inverted pushups 30 second dips 5 rounds!!!
Day 17…boxing day! Boxing and boxing conditioning are the only forms of training where I feel I’ve given it my all. I went for 8 rounds today on the heavy bag and some shadow boxing. Three minute rounds with a one minute rest break between. Keep that body moving as best as you can and keep those punches flying! No heavy bag? Shadow box it out! Jabs, crosses, hooks, upper cuts…just keep them coming and keep your body in motion.
We’re at the half way point. Let’s keep rolling…stay with it. Today we will focus on cardio and foam rolling! Start with 20 minutes of cardio – your choice. And then let’s finish with some good old foam rolling. Foam rollers help with pre and post workout flexibility my initiating self myofascial release. Self myofascial release works on the fascial system (the tissue that surrounds and wraps each muscle in our body). By gently rolling on the foam, […]
