Welcome to Week 11
Spring is here! I'm so excited! I actually got to take a few of my workouts outside this week. Being able to spend time outside improves my mood so much! Another thing that comes with spring is the notion that summer (and bathing suit season) is right around the corner. Time to buckle down and really commit to this! I'm going to commit to one more repeat of each circuit! What about you?
Are you starting your spring cleaning? Have you thought about the products you are using? I know I hadn't really before I got pregnant with my son, but since then I've made a big change! Keep an eye out this week for an important blog post about some healthier alternatives to household cleaning products. It is a shame to spend so much time on your physical fitness and hurt your health through something as simple as cleaning your home.
We focus so much on the visible benifits of strength training but it goes to much deeper than that! Here are some facts from the Mayo Clinic. Strength training helps you:
I would like you to help me choose the workouts for the next favorites week. Therefore, I'm going to include a poll at the bottom of each "Weekly Workout" post on the blog. Please vote for your favorites each week and help me choose the workouts for our next Favorites Week!
This Week's Workouts
Finally, below are this week's workouts. This week I've included quite a bit of combo moves. Combining muscle groups will make this workouts even more efficient :) #25 is our standard full body Tabata style workout. I'll use this one to introduce a few new combo moves. #26 is our standard 4-3-2-1 with 4 minutes of heart pounding plyometrics, 3 minutes of lower body (this week its all about the butt), 2 minutes of upper body, and 1 minute of core stability. #27 is a 40/20 split of super sets. This week's a little different than the past few super set workouts though. This time I have 20s of an isolated muscle group move followed by a 40s combo move that builds on the same type of motion. I'm really excited about this one!
