Sweet workout and post snack!

Alright. I definitely had one of those mornings where I wanted to go to the gym (not my place of work, but an actual gym where I can partake in exercise where no one knows me). I mean I really wanted to feel that surge of energy after I finished. That sense of accomplishment.

It just took me 4-ev-a to get there! I had one of those mornings where I would be half way out the door and … woops no water bottle. No headphones. NO this. NO that. Blahh. It really discourages your workout. My goal is to be more organized.

Anyways. I finally made it and had a heart-pumping-sweat-dripping good time. After a little cardio warm-up I went into this awesomely sweet circuit. Try it out!!

TRX & Kettlebell Extravaganza!

Do this 3x through with no rest in between exercises. Next 2x through…

  • TRX jackknife 10x
  • Deadbug 25x
  • Plank 30sec
  • TRX mountain climbers 30sec/ TRX superwoman 30sec (I couldn’t find videos for these- basically you are putting the straps underneath your arms/chest/rib cage with the anchor point behind you. MC are meant to be a fast tapping action with your feet. Superwoman’s are slower with a wider stance of the feet.) I’ll keep trying to post videos for these!

Enjoy the workout and if you have any questions just ask 🙂

  •  Remember to always talk to your doctor before starting any new fitness routine. If you have any additional questions about form, I am sure a certified professional at your gym could help out and give some pointers 🙂

Now on to the sweet goodness that tasted like the tropics…

    Pineapple-Coconut Vanilla smoothie

    1 tsp vanilla
    BLEND and close your eyes… imagine this… 

    Yup. Perfection after an awesome and sweaty workout. Congrats. You deserve it!
