Wednesday Workout: 15 Minute Blast # 2 {Lower, Upper & Cardio}

Remember how I shared a quickie workout a few weeks ago that was actually one part of a workout I did {seemingly} months ago? Today I’m back with part two of that workout- same format (AMRAP 15 minutes & progression style with cardio at the end), different exercises,  but just as much fun 😉

The exercises in this workout focus on hinging and pulling rather than squatting and pressing like the first one did. I will also warn you that the cardio combo as the last 3 moves in the circuit are killer for the upper body!

15 Minute Blast #2

I think everything here is pretty self-explanatory: SLDL= single leg deadlift (you’ll do 10 on each leg), deadlift->= do 1 standard deadlift (both legs not single leg) and in the hinged position perform a double arm row and then come back up to standing position. If you need more clarification, please don’t hesitate to let me know 🙂

And with that, I’m out! I hope you all have a great rest of your week- I hope to check back in with you soon 🙂


Wednesday Workout: My New Favorite Format- single, double, hold

Good morning! For those of you in Boston or New England, how are you handling all the snow? Have you had some time off from work? I’ve had to work from home, but it’s been hard since I can’t access some things I need.  Luckily I have LOTS of blog posts I can write, especially thanks to all your suggestions this week! Thanks for all your kind words on my new format- I’m really enjoying the simplistic look and feel.

Today’s workout post has a dual purpose: to provide you with a new workout format AND exercises to do with the new format. I was initially inspired by Nicole when I saw her post this workout. I love how she took one exercise and did it 3 ways. My twist on this workout is to work an exercise in a singular way, then double (or normal) and finish with a hold; a progression, so to speak.
