Happy hump day friends! How are you? How was your Tuesday? I forgot to finish my makeup yesterday (I put on eyeshadow but forgot my eyeliner and mascara). It really wasn’t that big of a deal, but it was out of character for me and kind of a weird way to start the day. Fortunately, I got back on track and felt pretty focused the rest of the day
Hell week at Orangetheory started yesterday, and I am participating, so that will pretty much be my workouts this week. I wanted to share a workout I did last week though, which I really enjoyed. This is a quick total body workout, that incorporates small bouts of cardio. This workout can be done at home, using only a set of dumbbells. The type of cardio is up to you, but aim for higher intensity to get the heart rate up. If you are outside, a jog or run works well. If you are in a gym, your cardio machine of choice will work (I am partial to the rower for short bursts like this). At home, jumping jacks, burpees, jogging in place or any other cardio moves can be used. If you are looking for a more challenging or longer workout, the full workout can be repeated.
For each round complete 12 repetitions of each exercise, then 10 of each, and last 8 of each before moving to the cardio. After completing the cardio, move to the next round of exercises.
What workouts have you been enjoying recently? Do you prefer to workout at home or at the gym? Orangetheory friends, are you participating in hell week?
