As of recent, I started to do a weekly email blast to my co-workers where I put out articles, videos, podcasts that I listened to and would help make us better coaches. So far it has been a wonderful way not only to keep up with the latest research but also to broaden my horizons. I thought I would do the same on here but keep it fun!
So happy to post a new Workout Wednesday post because working out has been so much more fun the past couple weeks!
One reason? A new playlist!
This playlist includes some of favorite jams for the summer and great tempo to run to.
Another thing that I have been loving is using going outdoors for exercise during the week. I have been sporting tanks and t-shirts during my runs to get some sun, and on Thursday mornings JT, our EXOS coach, has been taking us outside to do our circuit training or sprints. Fresh air and sunshine make it so nice!
Below check out what I did last week for my workouts and an Home Workout circuit that does not require weights. ENJOY!
It is no secret that I love to exercise and maybe even the point of too much. Exercise has been in my life consistently for as long I can remember. I had a gym routine by the age of 14 in high school. Some years I had a bad relationship with exercise (i.e. in college I did almost 3 hours a day) and now I have a good relationship with exercise (exercising 6 days a week but no more than 45-90 minutes most days). Though I have a great relationship with it now, I have been struggling with something the past few weeks that is different.
Music is a huge motivator for me. It motivates me to drive to work, motivates me to get ready for a night out, and definitely motivates me to get moving in the gym. Can you imagine a workout routine without music? With that said, I am always on the hunt for new music. Haven't made a new workout playlist in a while? I got your back. My January 2017 Workout playlist is live and here for you.
Exercise tends not to be an area that I form resolutions for rather I form new goals every month! Endorphin junkie over here! Even though I didn’t need one more go-to workout to add to my list, I found a workout program that is very new and exciting thanks to my twin sister Cristina. I want to share it with you all because it may just get you to start exercising if you don't. The workout is called DanceBody by Katia Pryce and it will rock your body. Hard. Which is good because I want her abs. Hard abs.
