Somebody needs to tell me how in the world it’s already the second week of June?! What the…?!
I know summer hasn’t officially started yet by seasonal calender standards but I bet many of you are already headed out to the beach, taking cruises in boats on the lake, tanning by the pool, etc. And don’t we all want to look bangin’….excuse me,…gorgeous and sexy for these summertime activities? I know I do!
While I do do know this phrase is VERY true…
….I do like to keep a semi-regular fitness schedule and be as active as I can during the week. Exercise is good for your heart and soul! Working out is NOT just about losing weight. Being physically active is important for a healthy and happy lifesytle. Period.
I’ll admit though, even I sometimes dread my workouts. They’re not ALL fun. It’s in those moments I remember mind over matter. I push myself to get a heart-racing workout in because I know at the end of it, I’ll feel better about it. Even if my body is saying otherwise and telling me it’s dying. I know better. It’s not dying. You gotta put a determined game face on and push through it.
Though I’m not much of a runner and I also don’t want to pay for a gym membership, I still get some great workouts in during the week. So how do I do this? Well, I’m pretty actively on my feet most of the day just because I think I have ADHD. I don’t like to sit down for long periods of time.
But I like finding free workout videos to watch online to vary up the types of exercise I’m getting as well as focus on different areas of my body.
I’ve decided to compile and share a list of some of my personal favorite workout videos I routinely use throughout the month to keep my bangin’–yes, bangin’!, be proud of what ya got!–body in shape. Enjoy!
5-Minute Fat Blasters: No Equipment Workout
This one is go-to quickie workout. It’s only 5 minutes. I think anyone can find 5 minutes during the day to do a quick heart-racing workout! Give this one a try. I usually run through it at least a couple times to really get my heart pumping.
Tone it Up girls–Beautiful Booty Workout
I was recently introduced to the Tone It Up girls’ website. They have LOTS of great workout videos and routines, so definitely check them out for even more great workout ideas. This one targets your booty. It’s not too difficult either, but you can feel the burn!
Total Body Barre Burner
Barre workouts are becoming increasingly popular as more barre studios are being opened up around the country. I found this one to be a great starter for those who’ve never even tried barre before. In the future I’d love to try more barre classes if I can!
5-Minute Workout For Sexy, Sculpted Arms
This arm workout may be short, but it’s intense! I can definitely feel my muscles getting worked in this one. You just need a couple of dumbbells or hand weights. You could even use some full water bottles or soup cans if you don’t have weights.
5-Minute Yoga Sequence
This yoga sequence would be good to do first thing in the morning to wake up your body and get you ready for the day or even after you’ve done some other workouts and routines to get a good stretch and cool-down.
