Sets, Repetitions & Circuits | Common Workout Terms

Common workout terms (like common sense) turns out are not actually common…unless you are already a person who works out. Even then sometimes we just go through the motions not really understanding what it is we are doing. Here I break down three common workout terms: Sets, Repetitions (reps) & Circuits. We can think of it in this way: a…

Rests, Intervals & Intensity | Common Workout Terms

One of the most common things I gets asked about (other than how to lose weight) is to explain certain workout terms.  Rests, Intervals & Intensity are three of the most common and three things that I, personally, feel are needed in all workouts that actually WORK for fat loss. Rests Rests can come in between circuits or in between sets.…

My Favorite Health & Fitness Podcasts

You’ve probably heard me mention many times that I LOVE podcasts! Some of my favorites I’ve been listening to since 2009 – before podcasting was even a thing really. I’m happy they have gained unpopularity and I can listen to some of my favorite people for hours on end! I love learning and experiencing other viewpoints and podcasts are an excellent…

Recumbent Bike Intervals | Fat Burning Cardio Workouts

The recumbent bike is so often dismissed – in fact, I dismissed it for a long time – but once I realized it’s value as a low impact cardio machine, I’ve been hooked. The recumbent bike, when used correctly, can be one of the best forms of cardio for those of us with bad knees. We can get our heart…

Treadmill Intervals | Fat Burning Cardio Workouts

This is my go-to treadmill interval that I do before many of my workouts. If you’ve looked back at any of my January workouts, you will see that I usually complete 10-12 minutes of some kind of high intensity cardio interval work. This is partly because I get so bored on cardio machines and partly because sprint intervals in cardio…

Workout 30 1 Hour Spin Class | 31 Days of Workouts

I never intended for a spin class to be part of my workout, but I decided to challenge myself at it for (at least) a month. I want stronger, more defined legs so it is helping me with that goal and it is going to help me with my cardio as I cut that back and focus on bigger, stronger…
