A workout to hit all spots and be done in 30 minutes! All you need are some dumbbells and you are ready to work!
Well Hi there everyone! Today is my first day back after a glorious 5 days of being off. Hope the kids are refreshed and ready to tackle 3 weeks until Christmas break.
I finished off my last day of break being more productive than I was on the other 4 days. I don’t know what it was, but I just couldn’t get in the groove. I had many things I could have done, but had no desire over the weekend.
After hanging out with my mom and decorating her tree yesterday morning, I came home to finish up some Christmas presents I was working on! They are actually going to be given out soon as it’s something you can use before Christmas, but being I had 7 to make, it took more time than I realized! Aaron is also building me something I have wanted for our basement (it’s sort of my Christmas gift), so I painted 2 coats on that! I finished out the day teaching class, preparing dinner for tonight (Chili!) and working on this post with Benson on my lap and the Christmas tree in front of me. Glorious times, you guys.
Now that I just blabbed about nothing, here’s what you are here for! I love creating at home strength workouts that get the most bang for your buck. I am all about efficiency and feeling the burn. This at home strength workout will do just that. You will finish in about a half hour (depending on how many breaks you take), but will feel it the next day!
At Home Strength Workout
You will complete each circuit 2 times, with each move lasting 1 minute. Please remember to watch your form. Choose weights accordingly since you are doing it for one minute. Weights that might be “light” at the beginning will be heavy by the end, so be careful! Never be afraid to start lighter and work your way up if you need to. Take breaks and drink water when needed! Always consult a doctor before beginning a new fitness routine!
Here are the links to the specific videos for this workout.
- Squat Jumps
- Leg Extensions
- Lunge, Pulse 3, and jump– for this, you will go into a lunge and pulse 3 times while you are down before performing a jump like in a jumping lunge. This video is a jumping lunge, so just add 3 pulses in between each!
- Plie Squat and Pulses– I like to throw in 6-8 pulses every 8 or so squats
- Lunge with Front Kick- alternate
- Walking push ups
- Tricep Dips
- Overhead Press
- Hammer Curls
- Reverse Flys
- Back Row
- Bicep Curl
As always, let me know if you give it a shot! Have a great Tuesday, everyone!
