No Equipment Workout

No Equipment Workout

I’m getting ready for my 2-week vacation through Georgia and South Carolina. Which is why this particular workout uses no equipment.

I wanted to record a great total body workout that you can do anywhere – like when on vacation.

You see, I am a firm believer of working out when you travel (shocker, uh!).

Think of it this way, you didn’t spend the last X number of days/weeks/month/years to get to where you are to only throw some of it away cause of a one or two week vacation.

And, you will lose it.

Experts call it the detraining period and you can expect to lose both strength and aerobic capacity in a two week period.

I know, personally, I lose aerobic a lot faster than my strength.

So, I always make a point of doing some sort of run, or bodyweight circuit at least two or four times a week when away.

Mini-Band Workout

I have never really worked with mini-bands until we opened The Studio.

Now, I try to use them in every class I teach.

I love the mini-band!

And, I also love that it is cheap and lightweight, making it easy to go anywhere you do.

40-Minute Full Body Circuit

40-Minute Full Body Circuit

40-Minute Full Body Circuit

We are everywhere in this workout.

And by everywhere I mean we are standing, we are on the ground, our intervals are super short, and sometimes longer.

We do some cardio, some weights and some stretch.

We use our bodyweight and weights.

Like I said, we are everywhere.

It’s awesome, you’re gonna love it!

Netflix Series I Recommend

This list is TOTALLY unrelated to this workout, or any workouts for that matter.

But… I thought what the hell? Maybe people will find it interesting. Or not.

The Last Kingdom

About the Vikings trying to claim the last kingdom of England. Amazing acting, fight scenes, story line and the lead character is not too hard to look at. Just saying.

The Fall

Sadly there are only 3 seasons of this crime-detective show. It stars Gillan Anderson as the detective and Jaime Dornan as the serial killer. I loved this series.

The OA

I don’t even know how to describe this show, expect that it’s awesome. The lead is a blind girl who has gone missing for seven years ago, and returns home, in her 20s with her sight restored, as well as a few other abilities. Can’t wait for season 2.

Riverdale

I watched this cause we thought it was a joke. A series about Archie, Jughead and Betty – in today’s time? WTHell? But, it is good. Jughead is homeless, his dad is a Hell’s Angel type dude, Ritchie has an affair with a teacher and Veronica’s dad is a mobster in jail. This show is seriously addicting.

Jessica Jones

Jessica Jones is a marvel character – so if you don’t like super hero shows stay away from this series. But, I love it. She’s tough, she’s mouthy and she drinks like a fish. She’s basically my newest girl crush.

House of Cards

Goes without saying, House of Cards needs to be on any must-watch list, however I am finding the newer seasons not nearly as good as season 1 and 2. You?

Sense8

Loving husband and I are addicted to this show and can’t wait for season 2. The premise of Sense8 is that eight strangers from all over the world who can mentally linked to each other, and the secret government agency hunting them down. Some of the best acting on television can be found on this series.

Stranger Things

Wow, this series rock! It is a sci-fi about a lost boy, a government lab steeped in terrible secrets, a mother who won’t rest until her son is found, and a weird little girl with a fetish for Eggo waffles.

The Crown

I adore the Queen, and even more so after watching this bio-series about her becoming the Queen of England. She is one tough woman.

The Killing

This series has wrapped itself up, with no more new seasons, but don’t let that stop you from watching. If you love crime drama’s (like The Fall listed above), you’ll love this series.

Marcella

A British crime series about a very, seriously flawed detective. However, those are the kind of characters I like.

TRX Circuit Workout

TRX Circuit Workout

TRX Circuit Workout

If you know me then you know that I am in love with… my husband, my dog and my TRX.

In that order too.

Or at least until I can teach the TRX how to vacuum 🙂  Hehe, just joking.

However, that would be super cool if my TRX could vacuum. Just saying if the makers of TRX are reading.

Anyways, the reason I love the TRX so much is that it makes your body do all the stabilizing. This, in turn, makes more muscles work.

And more muscles working makes me VERY happy.

TRX’s motto is “Make your body the machine”, and that’s just what this workout does.

For 50-minutes we power through 15 exercises, for three rounds.

It is sweaty, awesome fun!

Total Body Calorie Torching Workout

Total Body Calorie Torching Workout

This workout I’m solo.

No loving husband. No funny banter back and forth.

Being solo was my choice, too. And a purely selfish choice at that.

You see I did not want to listen to 40-minutes of moaning and groaning. I love the man, but for for the love of Pete can he complain.

He also WAS OVER THE MOON that I filmed without.

So, it was a win-win for everyone.

 

Other Calorie Torching Exercises

  • Sprint intervals (running)
  • Tabata workouts
  • Spin classes
  • Burpees 🙂
  • Rock climbing
  • Skipping rope
  • Rowing
  • Kettlebell swing
  • Hill workouts

All Levels Strength HIIT

All Levels Strength HIIT

While writing this blog I had my two trusty companions right beside me.

Bella and my afternoon kombucha.

Poor Bella hasn’t been feeling good this week though. She’s hasn’t been able to keep her food down.

Which is not like her.

She has thrown up pretty much everywhere. Living room, dining room, bedroom and my slipper (true story).

She’s even christened the new Studio.

This morning, while teaching my early morning class, she walked into the middle of the gym during our warm-up, threw up and then walked out.

Alrighty then. Now there’s a GREAT way to start a class.

Thankfully my crew have a fab sense of humour and it was all giggles and laughs.

However, poor Bell’s is not feeling her normal self.

Here’s hoping that a couple of days of special food from the vet will have her back to her old non-throwing-up self.

The deets:

Tools needed: A pair of heavy and light dumbbells

Workout best for: home or gym

Level: beginner – advanced
