Full-Body Weight Training

Welcome to my first workout post! I'm so excited to start sharing my favorite ones with you guys. I'll be posting cardio, strength, intervals, pool workouts and more! What's great about them is that most of them can be done in your house, your garage, or your backyard if you don't have time to hit the gym. 

Here's one I'm heading off to do right now. It's a strength-training, full-body workout. It's a tough one, so get ready!

·      5 minutes intervals

o   1 minute sprint, 1 minute active recovery

·      2 minutes road speed

Equipment: 2-12 lb. dumbells, 1 jump-rope

Set #1 – repeat 3 times

·      60 bicycles (abs)

o   10 slow and controlled

o   50 fast

Set #2 – repeat 3 times

Nicely done! Don't forget to stretch - your hamstrings and quads got plenty of work. Also, drink lots of water and put some protein and complex carbs in your body as soon as you can. Stay tuned for more workouts and information on what I like to refuel with after a tough workout :)
