What Gets You Pumped?

Sometime last week my husband posed the question, “So, what gets you pumped?” He was meaning to ask how do I get motivated for a workout. And he was so serious-faced about this question, I had to giggle to myself a little. Maybe because as husband and wife we don’t tend to ask such interview-ish questions. “Excuse me, wife, please…

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.…

Workout 31 Renegades + Back | 31 Days of Workouts

Here we are at our last day of these workouts – with one of my favorite exercises (I think I say this about them all, but oh well!! 🙂 ) – – – Renegade Rows. These things are a plank and row combination that is so killer it’s hard to get through 10 reps on each side. Of course, it…

Workout 29 Hot & Toned Legs | 31 Days of Workouts

This is a serious leg workout. Anytime there are kettlebell swings and SLDL (single leg deadlifts) in one workout….sweet goodness it means you’ll be breathing heavy the entire time. Many leg workouts are focused on increasing strength, but this one is make up of dynamic moves that will help you burn tons of fat too. Make sure you bring the…

Workout 28 Presses + Pull Ups | 31 Days of Workouts

As I was editing the graphic for this one I realized I did a tons of press exercises in this chest workout. Weird. I’m sure I’ve done this many times before but never noticed everything ended with “press”. Using cables with chest workouts doesn’t always go well because it seems the cable weight is either too light or to heavy…

Workout 27 Rest Day 1 Hour Hike | 31 Days of Workouts

Technically the Abs + Butt workout was a rest day (kinda), but I guess I needed one on this day too 🙂 Like I keep saying, do something for at least 30 mins – walking, yoga or a hike. Just make sure its something that’s not too strenuous or intense – the body needs rest. I did a 1 hour…
