A few weeks ago I shared “How to Make a Habit of Exercise” and all about my fitness journey. Now, if I miss a workout, I really notice a difference in my day. I can’t say that I enjoy the process every time that I work out, but afterwards, I’m always so glad that I did.
My preferred method of exercise is running. However, during the winter, I only do at-home workouts, as it’s too cold to go out and run. Even when the weather is warm, I don’t run every day. I’ve found that cross training is so beneficial for building strength and endurance at running!
Especially given the current circumstances, when many are staying in with the quarantine, the options I’m providing today are perfect for fitting in that sweat session while at home. Exercising is not only a means to get fit, but it’s also a helpful mood booster and stress reducer through tough times!
You do not need to go to the gym to get a good workout. I love exercising at home using free YouTube videos and have seen some fantastic results from doing so.
Please excuse my dirty mirrors, haha! Apparently I need to add those to my spring cleaning list. 🙂
*Please use your best judgment and talk to your doctor, if necessary, before beginning a workout program. Most of these workouts are not beginner workouts, so please don’t take them on if you have weak joints and unless you are prepared and able fitness-wise.
My typical weekly workout schedule looks something like this:
Monday: Insanity Max30 Cardio
Tuesday: 30 Minute Strength Workout
Wednesday: Insanity Max30 Sweat or Strength
Thursday: 20 or 25 Minute Cardio and 10 minute Abs
Friday: Insanity Max30 Friday Fight
Saturday: (20 Minute Strength plus 10 Minute Abs) or (30 Minute cardio plus 10 minute abs or Resistance Bands)
I have done all of the workouts below multiple times and can attest that they are great ways to break a sweat, build strength and cardio endurance.
I hope you find this list helpful! What are your favorite workouts? I’m always in need of new ideas!
