Banded HITT Circuit. Great way to get cardio in, burn those pizzas when you’re in a rush. I did each exercise for 30 sec, 30 sec rest, repeat the entire circuit 5x -side step into jump squats
-in and out squats
-squats into alt. leg reverse kicks
-jumping jacks squats
-box jump squats
Capped the day off with a killer 50 minute interval session. ️
Felt great after a long day at work.
Now to chill with the family before bed.
Have a great night all!
Finally back in my favourite place after 4 days. Been too busy with life and school assignments to work out. Plus I was so unmotivated in getting my assignments done that I told myself if I finished everything over last night, I’ll reward myself with a morning workout session and here I am after rewarding myself with another sweaty session. Could definitely feel the effects of not working out for the past 4 days
Whats the key to success at a new place?
I have said it before, explore and get yourself moving!
Today we walked over 20k due to apartment hunting!
We have been walking A LOT and closing the rings for our goals ;) We have found that walking is more than easy here and bikes are a most!
What about your city? Can you not use the car? Can you walk instead of using the metro the entire way? Can you use the stair instead of the lift/elevator?
Make changes, explore, move on! ———————-
Cual es la clave para llegar a tus metas?
Ya lo he dicho antes, explora y MUEVETE!
Hoy caminamos al rededor de 20km ya que estamos buscando apartamentos!
Pero el lado positivo es que hemos cerrado todos los círculos y hemos logrado nuestros objetivos ;) Ya nosotros sabemos que caminando en esta ciudad se llega a todo lados y que la bici es indispensable, y en tu ciudad como es?
Puedes andar en bici? Puedes no utilizar tanto el carro? Puedes andar mas tramos en vez de agarrar el metro? Puedes subir las escaleras en vez de agarrar el ascensor?
Cada paso cuenta, solo falta que te muevas!
Yo lo veo como un reto: puedo cerrar todos los círculos?
Ahora te toca a ti!
Berry bliss bowl after scrolling through my feed yesterday reflecting on how I've changed and developed over the years, I realized I haven't made a smoothie bowl in way too long. So here it is, my classic favorite berry bowl with a twist. I love banana based smoothies bowls, but sometimes I just want something lighter, so I bulked it up with Zucchini, more berries, and Spinach to add in those extra nutrients and antioxidants topped it off with some healthy fats to keep me fueled and this breakfast kept me full for hours! I'm jumping back on the whole foods train for the remainder of August and kickstarting healthy habits as summer outings have slowly become a little too frequent comment below your favorite healthy come back foods, I would love to hear
I recently purchased the @alexia_clark workout programme and after having done 4 workouts from it (both gym and home), I absolutely love it. I found out about this programme through @nikkigundy, who is an absolute queen and someone I’ve been following for the longest time!! Nikki switched from the bbg programme to the Alexia Clark one and has been consistently doing the at home workouts for a fair few months now! After watching her daily stories about how much she loves the programme and how both challenging and fun it is, I thought I’d have to try it I’ve always been active and able to go to the gym so I thought that it would be interesting to see if I could follow a programme So far, I’m loving how each workout is different and the fact that you can choose the length of the workout (lifesaver if you’re short on time!!) I’m also trying so many different exercises that I’ve never done before and the lil example videos that go along with them really help to get the correct form Alexia also has a ridgeback so um hello, best human ever (I have a ridgeback so might be slightly biased ) To sum it up, I have thoroughly enjoyed the programme so far and can’t wait to see how I progress in the next few months! Nikki is also a seriously funny, lovable, motivational character and if you’re not following her already...what are you doing?? #queenteam#workouts#workoutroutine#workoutmotivation#alexiaclark#alexiaclarkfitness#gymshark#fitnessfun#fitnessmotivation#gymsharkwomen#gymsharkgirls#workingoutisfun#weightlifting#weightliftingwomen#bbg#bbgcommunity#fitnessprograms#sweatittoshredit
Today is all about #mindsetmonday as I dive back into my normal routine. Mindset to not lose the momentum I gained while in Nashville. Mindset to get back into a workout routine as it’s been over a week since I last got a proper workout. Mindset to crush the goals I’ve set for myself, both health wise and financial wise. Mindset to share the gift of proper nutrition with all of you. Mindset to earn a trip to Disney World for me and my family. Mindset to possibly retire from my current day job and be able to devote more time to helping others work towards their health, fitness, and financial goals. Mindset to not let the small things get to me. And most importantly mindset to not give up when people show doubt in what I can and can’t achieve.
Who’s ready for Tuesday Zumba? We start the party 6-7pm! Bring your friends and forget you’re even working out! . **Summer sessions are almost over! But don’t despair! We have our fall classes lined up and ready to go. Register today! Link to sign up is in our bio.
Lets talk about working out! I want to know what do you love and what do you hate?
I am team everything but I have to say that running is the only thing I never get bored off! ♀️♀️
Find what you love first!! For me is so easy to explore the city by just running around! However, if you like doing weights or circuits you can go to different parks ;) ————————
Hablemos de hacer ejercicio, que te gusta hacer que no te gusta?
A mi me encanta hacer de todo la vdd! Eso si, lo único que he hecho toda mi vida y todavía no me canso es de correr ♀️♀️
Primero: encuentra lo que te gusta! Por ejemplo a mi me encanta correr y explorar la ciudad, si me pierdo en ella jajaja
Pero hay personas a las q no le gusta correr, entonces pueden ir a un parque y hacer circuitos allí!
Esto es cuestión de gustos, no de obligaciones
HAPPY MONDAYYYY MY BEAUTIES!!!!!
For most of my life, I have always dreaded Monday and I know I’m not alone! I used to hate the fact that a new week was starting up and that meant I had to go back to school just to manage my way through. Mondays always meant 5 more days of “just getting by” until Friday when I could finally spend the weekend focusing on the things I loved!
I was living my life on autopilot without any real passion.
Last January I made an official decision to change the path of my entire future. I switched from wanting to be an elementary teacher to holistic nutrition and I haven’t looked back one day since!
I now look forward to waking up every single day and I cannot wait for Mondays because that means it is a new week to start working on what I am most passionate about!
If you have ever been in a position of deciding whether to go after your dream job/passion or to take the safe job that you know you’ll make at least okay money doing... I get it and I’ve been there! But making the decision to follow my dreams is the best choice I’ve ever made #livepassionately#happythoughts#tiucheckin
I’ve never in life had a workout where I had to literally sit for a good minute and catch my breath, drink another 750ml water before I could stretch and cool down until @sarahs_day ebook when I see results I give myself a high five and say yeah you worked for it! Just gonna sit for the rest of the evening because I’m not sure if I’m even able to walk great start to the week! Did yours start off like mine?
The sport that brings me so much pain has all of my love.
I won’t lie and say that I’m not heartbroken that I have to be on the sidelines once again. But I also understand that mindset and perspective is everything. Whenever I catch myself feeling hopeless, I stop and change my negative thought into a positive one. When I come back, I WILL be STRONGER.
Not my best time but I set my mind to run 6 miles today and I did it!
Ever wondered what the best, most effective way to loose fat is? With so many different options and opinions out there it can be confusing to anyone out there trying to get in shape for the first time
The simplest answer is, there is no “best way” to loose fat. Each person responds differently from program to program and from exercise to exercise.
The most effective exercises are those that require your body to perform multiple movements on multiple planes with added weight. The extra weight will require you to burn more calories to perform the movement and therefore is better suited for burning fat than non baring weight exercises. It is important to choose a weight that is challenging but not so heavy that you struggle to do all the reps
For so long it has been assumed that long cardio stints like walking or jogging on a treadmill or bike at a low intensity were the most effective way to shed fat. During low intensity exercises fat does provide an energy source. However, since we burn more calories per minute at moderate to high intensity the total number of calories expended during a moderate to high intensity workout is greater than it is during a low intensity workout of the same duration
Another benefit of training at a high intensity is the fat lost after your workout. This depends, in part, on the exercise intensity during the workout. After a high-intensity exercise, the rate of fat oxidation is higher than it is following low-intensity exercise. A great way for individuals to achieve this is to perform the exercises at a high intensity and the circuit be broken up with periods of rest. HIIT training is a great way to perform high-intensity work and help decrease body fat percentage. Here are a few tips to consider when setting up a HITT circuit
1. Set up the full circuit beforehand
2. Make sure you have a timer handy
3. Set up each station in a way that it doesn’t take long to go from one station to the next, avoiding too much rest
4. Choose exercises that are functional and hit all areas of your body (continued in comments )
