How’s everyone feeling? Good? Last week I was kind of hitting a slump with my routine. Feeling unmotivated and searching for more consistency in our day to day. A big thing for me is feeling productive, whether that’s personally or professionally. One of the items on my to-do list is pushing my body and getting a good sweat in at some point in my day. Since getting into a routine with fitness I automatically feel like my day is won if I get a workout in. With all of this time spent at home it’s been a challenge to get creative with our workouts! We usually try to incorporate at least two days of strength training sessions a week with moves that challenge both Dave and myself. Since it looks like we will be working out from home for a while, I thought it would be fun to share three circuits that we’ve been doing at home that challenge us to move our bodies.
Dave and I both do these workouts and just make them more challenging (depending on each other’s strength) with heavier weights, higher reps, or fewer breaks. These circuits are a great combo of cardio, arms, legs, and core work. You’ll definitely feel the burn! I usually use 5-10lb weights depending on the move and Dave will use anywhere from 10-35lbs. #showoff
AT HOME FULL BODY WORKOUT
CIRCUIT 1: repeat 3x
12X squat press
20X weighted jumping jacks
30x alternating step ups with a switch at the top
CIRCUIT 2: repeat 3x
20x alternating kneeling to stand with weights at shoulders
20x alternating bicep curls with sumo squat
20x forearm to plank
CIRCUIT 3: repeat 3x
15x side plank dips on each side
20x alternating lunge with arm extension
10x man makers (alternating back row with push up – so 5x each side)
Adjust to your own strength with fewer reps and lower weight and see what you can do! This is a BODY BURN. Dave and I also filmed a video of this workout which you can find on my IGTV!
I’ve recently received a few questions about Dave’s favorite workout pieces and two items that he loves (and has multiples of) are the lululemon 7” Pace Breaker (he wears a medium) and the Metal Vent Tech Short Sleeve shirt (he wears a large because he has a bigger chest/shoulders). One of our tasks since we’ve been home is to go through our clothes and our exercise clothes needed a serious overhaul. We donated a ton of pieces that were showing too much wear and stocked up on some new items from lululemon! I love a good crop tee and grabbed this short sleeve in two colors (wearing a 4) and restocked my favorite WunderUnder leggings in this light grey and also the incognito camo—I needed some lighter options for summer. Other favorites include the Cates tee (I have in 3 colors!) and these tie-dye Align leggings! Sometimes just snagging a few new pieces to wear during your workout motivates you to get your booty moving. I’m always checking lululemon’s new arrivals to see what makes me feel excited to work out. It’s the little things!
A big thank you to lululemon for sponsoring this post!
