Lunch Time Leg Workout

Another lunch time workout for Jax and I while Marlie slept. On the menu today: LEGS! Doing legs at home is a lot easier than you realize. You don't need any fancy equipment like a leg press machine, stair master, or a squat bar to fire up your lower-body muscles.

This one had my glutes on fire and I was so happy about it. You can do this circuit anywhere—your living room, a hotel room, a park — as long as you have some weights and space around you. That makes this workout the ultimate zero-excuse leg burner.

I used a 25 lb dumbbell for this workout and if you want to ramp it up you can add a band to the glute kickbacks and monster walks


3x

DB squat to straight leg DL x 12

Glute kickbacks x 20 each leg

Goblet squat with 4 pulses at the bottom x 10

Single arm DB lunges x 12 each leg


HIIT Finisher 3x

Monster walks 4 forward and 4 back x 4

sprawl to squat x 12

Oh Baby! Babywearing workout

As a mom, it can be hard to find time to workout and once you do find the time, sometimes the kids don’t want you to even put them down. That is why I am thankful for my Ergo 360 so I can wear my little one and do a workout.

It is fun to get creative and try to fit in as much as you can in the time you are give. I love a good challenge.

If you do not have a baby, don’t worry you can trade the baby for a pair of dumbbells or a kettlebell!

I warmed up with 4 laps around the football field with the kids in the stroller (~.75 mi)

then I went through—

3 rounds of:

lunges x 20 (reverse lunges if you have knee issues)

Good mornings x 15

Side lunge with knee drive x 10 each direction

Dips x 15

then

I finished with a 3 mile run.

  • if you hate running or can’t run, try biking or going for a long walk!


Oh baby! Good luck

Oh baby! Good luck

Burn Baby HIIT workout

As a busy mom, I’m always looking to create workouts that are quick, burn a lot of calories, hit the whole body and make me feel good!

This workout is all of that and I am excited to share it to you this week.


High intensity interval training {HIIT} is proven to be one of the most effective forms of exercise for burning maximum calories in a short amount of time. Hence why it’s my go-to if I’m short on time. I also like to add it at the end of a strength-based workout to help create that “after-burn”. (burning calories hours after your workout)


You can do this at home, in a hotel room, or at the gym.

No equipment required (I recommend adding a band)
