Quick, But Not Easy, Workout

I love workouts that incorporate strength moves, and throw in some cardio too. That’s why this week’s video is just that – plus it’s a quick workout ;)

It’s total body strength with cardio portions that will definitely leave you out of breath.

All you need is a set of dumbbells.

Go through the routine 3-6x through, or however long/challenging you want to make it. Or get creative, and add in another circuit. If you do this, pick 1 upper body exercise, 1 lower body exercise, and a cardio portion to do for 1 minute. Leave me a comment with what you decide to add!

Let me know if you try it out & what you think. What’s your favorite exercise that requires just dumbbells?

Indoor Workout Perfect For Winter!

So it’s been pretty cold recently…and after snowstorm “Hercules” I really don’t feel like even stepping outside sometimes. Tomorrow’s high is 9 degrees…sweet!

That’s where I got the idea for this workout. No need to go outside (though props to all my fellow runners who are braving the elements!), and now no need to even step outside to go to the gym. You can do this workout at home, and you don’t need any equipment!

Check it out:

You can do as many circuits of this as you want, or feel free to add reps to each exercises to make it more challenging. Give it your all and no doubt you will be sweating by the end.

If you want to do this at the gym, I also made a handy-dandy printable for you!

Let me know if you have any questions, and what you thought of the workout :)

Do you incorporate interval workouts & bodyweight workouts into your routine?

What’s your favorite exercise to do if you’re limited on time?
