Do you find yourself overthinking your workout sometimes? I mean that one girl always basically does flying acrobat moves over there and you’re doing jumping jacks. But the secret is not to overthink your workouts! There is no need to feel overwhelmed by all the moves. Do you ever wonder why jumping jacks and pushups are still a thing? Because they work! Sure, there are impressive moves you can try out every once in awhile, but it’s always good to take it back to the basics. Remember where you came from! 😉
Countdown Workout, No Weights Required
This workout combines my 5 favorite moves that I bust out and do almost every workout because they bring results. The best part about these moves is that you can modify them to be easier or HARDER! Go through this workout with me once and then go through it 2 more times as quickly as you can to keep that heart rate up. We are looking to build strength and do some cardio at the same time! Each set should take around 5 minutes, and do it 3 times!
Talk about a full body workout. These babies will never go out of style. For maximum results, try elevating your feet. Or add a clap in between. If you are still working on your form and building strength, do pushups from your knees.
After doing ten of these I already feel the burn! Be sure to keep your glutes near your chair and only bend at the arms. I don’t want to see any hip thrusts ladies. We want to see those toned triceps. For modification, take it to the floor and don’t use the chair. Can you pulse at the bottom?
If you hardly have time to do anything today, the answer is plank. Take it down and plank for 2-3 minutes. Done! Worked the core, arms, shoulders, and glutes. You’re Super Woman!
Squats are just the best. Every girl needs to squat because it will get those legs and behind looking good. If cellulite is a problem for you in the leg region, these will also help to reduce the appearance…along with a really good diet!
The back side never gets worked enough. We sit on our bums nearly all day so it’s important to give them a little attention. Squeeze up through the glutes and feel your hamstrings power up too. Too easy? Try one leg bridge lifts.
Try out this workout with me and let me know what you think! Did you feel the burn?
