Bodyweight Cardio Challenge!!

Not sure if have mentioned this enough, but I do not like cardio. Especially on any type of machine or when it comes to running. Yes, I do it, but do not like it. I would much rather prefer to so some form of bodyweight cardio. It’s not as boring, its multi-directional so works my body in different ways and it can be much shorter with the same benefits.

So as I sat at my desk for almost 8 hrs today, I decided I needed to get up and move and since it’s raining outside and I didn’t want to go do intervals on the treadmill, I decided to come up with my own workout.

THEN I thought, why not make it a CHALLENGE!!! Make it even MORE fun!! 😉

Make sure to do a warm up  before you begin!! I did some inchworms, spiderman t-ups, forward lunge extensions, hip rolls and hip extensions.

Then I set up timer online and took off! My goal AND yours is to complete this in under 10 minutes. I finished it in 8:46 seconds!! Now its YOUR turn!!! 

Come back and post your time and let me know how well you did! Get it done girls!! 🙂

All Bodyweight Workout Kicks BUTT!

Some of my clients and I did the Spartan Race a few weeks ago. It was a great time and I set a goal for us to finish in less than 2 hours and without the lightening delay of 40 minutes, we definitely would have made that goal! Kudos to my Fit Chicks!!

We were gone from Monday until Thursday late. I had early morning Friday and missed my Fit Chicks!! But I was pretty tired and still a bit sore from the Spartan Race. Yes I STILL have bruises and it was 11 days ago!

So for MY workout I wanted something not TOO aggressive but enough to get my body moving, my heart rate up and work my entire body. Here is what I came up with:

We rested for 1 minute half way through, so after round 2. It was rough but good!! Felt good after and was glad I had done it.

NO equipment necessary which is good for a travel workout!! Enjoy!
