I've finally got a post with a little substance for y'all! Who is excited?
Remember how a while back I purchased Insanity and began the program? I really liked it- the program definitely had me working up a sweat and feeling in shape, but truthfully, it was missing something. The program is mostly cardio, and I prefer running or spin as cardio to at-home options like Insanity. As much as I miss running and spin though, that wasn't quite what I felt like was really missing.
When I finally sat down and thought about it, I realized I missed the burn I use to get from my Body Works classes. That burn from really working my muscles. Strength training. That was the missing piece. So, last night, I changed things up and did a total body circuit that would help me feel the burn. I almost did my Ain't No Rest for the Wicked workout, but I really wanted to jam out to my favorite tunes and not have to pay attention to a timer, so I ended up doing what I'm calling the "Favorite Song" Workout instead.
To begin, pick out ten of your favorite workout songs. My list included:
Bring Em Out T.I.
Whatever You Like T.I.
It Girl Jason Derulo (Workout Remix) this is on iTunes but I can't find it on YouTube
Cruise Florida Georgia Line
Let The Beat Build Lil Wayne
Right Above It Lil Wayne
Opposite of Adults Chiddy Bang
The Show Goes On Lupe Fiasco
Live Your Life T.I. ft. Rhianna
What can I say, T.I. pumps me up. Must be the ATL thing. :D
To complete this workout, you will perform each of the following exercises for the duration of one song. Take rests whenever necessary, but try to push yourself! Your muscles will be fatigued by the end and I promise you'll feel the burn!
1. Jumping Jacks/ Jog In Place
5. Tricep Dips
7. Renegade Rows
8. Wall Sit
9. Shoulder Press
10. Mountain Climbers
Please note that I am not a certified personal trainer nor educated in any way about fitness. Always speak to your doctor and trainer prior to completing a workout if you are uncertain about anything. This workout was created for fun and has no fitness knowledge backing it up... I have no idea whether it will actually create results. (Doesn't that make you want to do it?!)
