Upper Body HIIT Workout!

A couple of weeks ago I shared a lower body AMRAP workout. It’s one that I’ve done many times and definitely recommend to get a good sweat going! Today, in a similar fashion, I have a workout for you that combines some upper body work with intervals to get your heart rate up.

This is a perfect spring workout. One of my favorite things to do is take my workout outdoors and soak up some time in nature (aka my front yard) while working my body. The HIIT intervals can just be completed up and down your block! Use the walking time back to your house to catch your breath and get ready for the next set. Of course, if you can’t take it outside, it’s A-ok to complete this workout by hopping on and off the treadmill — just rest as needed!

Last Week’s Workouts

Well, happy Monday, y’all! For me, this Monday is a little more sad than most. It’s my first day back at school after a lazy Spring Break. After a week of sleeping in, I’m just now having to truly adjust to the time change. Such is life, I guess. BUT the bright side of that is that summer is coming quickly!

I feel a little bit uninspired with my workouts lately and I can’t figure out why that is. Most of my workouts are still a great time, at least when I’m in the middle of them. I guess I’m feeling like I’m not doing “enough” right now and fearing muscle loss with all of the running I’ve been doing this year! It also doesn’t help that it’s “shark week” and I’ve been eating everything I can get my hands on. 😉

Brooks Juno Review (The New Style!)

I need to be honest for a quick second. I’ve been trying to write this post for weeks — WEEKS! — and just haven’t taken the time to do it. Let’s all thank the Spring Break for giving me some time to actually breathe for a few days. #teacherproblems

A few weeks ago, I talked about some of the best sports bras for chesty ladies. While I was writing that post, I discovered that one of my favorite bras, the Moving Comfort Juno, had been updated by Brooks. Was Moving Comfort purchased by Brooks? It appears that way. Anyway, I was due for a new bra, so I decided to order the Brooks version and compare it to my trusty Moving Comfort.

Is a traditional gym absolutely essential to living a fit and healthy life? No — in my opinion it’s not! Let’s take a dive into some home gym essentials that can give you the same great workout offered in a traditional gym.

Home Gym Essentials

Over the years, my fitness journey has changed and evolved as other areas of my life have also changed and evolved. In the beginning, all my time was spent in boutique studios hiding at the back so no one would notice if I didn’t know what I was doing. When I moved back home to start teaching, there were no studios, so I joined a traditional gym. About a year ago, my in-laws gifted me with their old treadmill, so I decided to cancel my gym membership in favor of saving ever-precious time. Now that we’ve moved to a new city and finally gotten settled into our new house, I’m still working out at home and only at home. It’s proven to be one of the greatest decisions I’ve made in this busy, busy season of life.

Lower Body AMRAP Workout!

Today’s Wild Workout Wednesday is a little different than the last few I’ve linked up for! I’m giving you a Lower Body AMRAP Workout that can be done in 30 minutes. In the last few months, I’ve been so busy that I’m all about maximizing my time with my workouts. I need to be DONE in 45 minutes or less so I can move on to the other things I need to tackle during the day.

Like I mentioned on Monday, I go through phases with my workouts. Sometimes I want to write them all myself. Other times I want a schedule to follow that allows me to mix and match. And then there are still times in which I don’t want to think at all about my workouts and just pop in a DVD so I can be bossed around by someone else for 45 minutes. This is one I created for myself a few months back. It’s sure to work up a good sweat and leave those legs a-quivering!
