Good morning! I hope you’re all having a good week so far.
Today’s workout is one I did a little while ago when I was doing my one of many at-home workouts. Speaking of, when did I become such an at-home workout person?! I used to always go to the gym for my workouts, but I feel like now that we have a spin bike and some heavier weights I can get a pretty decent workout in at-home. On top of this it saves me SO MUCH TIME, which if you read my post on Monday, you’ll know that time is of the essence these days. Even though I want to get bigger and stronger muscles, having some additional free time is more important so therefore I cut my workouts short to allow for that. I don’t believe in the “I’m too busy” excuse trap because I feel that if it’s something we really, truly want to do we will make time. So I’m not too busy to get to the gym for long, intense strength training sessions, it’s just that I would rather do short workouts (but effective) so that I have more time to do other things.
Anyway, that rant really had nothing to do with today’s workout, lol 🙂 For this workout, you’ll just need a set or two of dumbbells (or a Kettlebell would work too) and a mat. You’ll then set your timer for 20 minutes and get to work, moving from one exercise to the next resting as needed, but trying to rest as little as possible so as to keep the heart rate up so that a primarily strength workout becomes strength AND cardio. Two birds, one stone!
I think all of these moves are pretty standard B2B exercises, but if you have questions don’t hesitate to ask!
Here’s to hump day!
Questions for you: Do you prefer at home workouts or do you prefer going to the gym?
