I am so excited to share one of my workouts with you today. I feel like it has been a while since I posted one and I really need to get back into the workout posts.
On Saturday I was looking to do a quick workout before Marc’s parents came in town for his Birthday but I didn’t feel like going to the gym.
I knew I wanted to use weights and I needed the workout to be quick and effective.
I started out with a 5 minute warm-up alternating between jogging, Jumping Jacks, high knees, butt kicks. I then completed this workout:
Quick Full Body Toner
10 SQUAT TO SHOULDER PRESS
15 SUMO SQUAT TO UPRIGHT ROW
REPEAT 4-6 ROUNDS (4 rounds is about 20 minutes, but you can always add on 2 rounds to make it about 30 minutes) Rest 30-60 seconds between each round and cool down at the end with some light stretching.
I really loved this workout because it was challenging, quick, and effective. My heart was pumping the entire time and by the last round I needed to switch to knee pushups because I was so fatigued. My legs were sore the next day and I didn’t like lifting my arms over my head because my shoulders were wiped.
I used 12 pound dumbbells during this workout, but next time I will go for the 15 pounders!
For all you moms out there this is a great workout to do during nap time!
