Workout with my weights and resistant bands, stretching my legs out with the band’s by doing several light moves, nothing crazy, nice & easy, lightweight & proven to help work the muscles better then doing squats or stretches alone.
It’s almost the end of the year, thank God, I hate the last month of the year (yes even xmas) & I hate the winter season even more, the temp has drastically dropped & not even running is warming me up in the mornings, its the time of year where you just want to hibernate.
So with that being said I get why people lose focus around this time of year, so it’s extra motivation for me & my home workouts which is where it all began 10 months ago when I started my fitness blogging journey, something that has got me through the year & has been my proudest achievement, regardless of whether I’ve lost alot of weight or not because for me the most important thing when I started this was to find something new I was good at & making it my own, finding a new hobby that I loved & enjoyed & lastly something that could help me get through my dark times which it has.
When you’ve found that something do it everyday for the rest of your life!!!
As you can there’s a difference, but I ain’t trying to be skinny, I just want to be fit, healthy and happy and as long as I have fitness I’m on the right track.
Just one weight & loads of little moves, you can add pretty much anything to a workout 💪🏋️♀️
4 moves in one, as part of my arm workouts which can be a bit boring but having a routine set & your own moves can make it that little bit better.
Here I am doing up to 10 x 3 & often add another move from time to time.
Attempted this move which looks easy but it involves using your upper body strength to get yourself back up & pick up weights which is optional. Such a great move to build muscle, tone your upper body, have better balance & burn calories. Hard at first but just like with any move, the more you do the more you get better at it.
(10 reps x2)
When you haven’t got time to fit in exercise before of after work. Well you can do this which only takes 10 minutes a day.
* 5 moves in total
* 1 minute per move
* x2 reps = 10 minutes
What’s 10 minutes a day in the morning? Plus it makes you feel good about yourself & keeps you positive throughout the day.
Add 2 minutes or another rep & again it’s still under 20 minutes, with or without weights (before I had weights I used tins of beans, worked just the same) 💪🏋️♀️
