Hey TTTers, 
As I’m currently in Denver, Colorado for FitSocial, I’ve asked my good blend, Katie, if she would write a guest post for me! She is not only one of the nicest people I’ve ever met, her blog is fabulous! Thank you SO much Katie for posting while I’m away :)

Hi there Trendy Trainer readers! My name is Katie and I blog over at Daily Cup of Kate where I write about food, fitness, and finding balance and happiness by taking life one cup of coffee at a time.
I was thrilled when Caroline asked me to write a guest post for her while she is living it up in Colorado (jealous!) Like Caroline, I am a big health and fitness enthusiast and love sharing my workouts with others. My favorite workouts are simply the ones that use minimal equipment and can be done in the comfort your own home. (I don’t know about you but my gyms weight room smells like dirty socks and typically is filled with a bunch of grunting meat heads which just isn’t my cup of tea coffee).
So, I am here today to give you a taste of some of my own workouts. Enjoy! 

I love performing this workout once a month to see if I can beat my previous times. Simply run/walk one mile and record your time. Then set a timer for 60 seconds and perform as many pushups as you can. Rest for 30 seconds, and move on to burpees, sit-ups, and squat jumps. Finally, hold a plank (on elbows or hands) for as long as you can and record the time.

Tabata workouts are the best because you can achieve maximum results in minimal time. Plus, they are over before you know it! Create your own by picking an exercise and setting a timer for 20 seconds work and 10 seconds rest. Complete the exercise as hard as you possibly can for 20 seconds and then rest for 10, repeating 8-20 times total.

I tend to go on a lot of weekend trips away from home during the Summer and Fall months and this is the perfect workout to do because its quick and requires absolutely no equipment.
Working the upper body and pairing it with bursts of cardio takes this workout to the next level!
Like what you see? Head on over to Daily Cup of Kate every Friday for a new fun and challenging workout!  Thanks again Caroline for letting me take over your blog for the day!

  1. I'm so glad I met BOTH of you ladies at the Healthy Living Summit! I also like workouts I can do with just weights either at home or in my apartment gym because it's just more comfortable not being surrounded by ginormous dudes. Not that it should matter…but it's just one more thing preventing me from wanting to strength train!
