Muscle Confusion Workout

A couple of weeks ago my computer’s hard drive fried on me – right in the middle of formatting this video. I cried. It was sad to see my old friend Mac give it’s breath, and take my work with it.

However, my BFF did not let me down. When I got a new hard drive put in and started the slow process of putting all my files back on the drive lo’ and behold there was the video.

Still there, waiting for it’s final edit. Waiting to be released it into the world.

Well… here you go world, meet one of my new favourite workouts.

Muscle Confusion – All Levels Workout

Loving husband had a ROUGH time with this workout. He was very tired and was wondering, near the end, what he did wrong in life to be saddled up with a personal trainer for a wife.

I, of course, remind him every day that he is damn lucky to have me. And he, of course, rolls his eyes every time.

I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy forever. Click To Tweet

  • A kick a** leg workout
  • Stronger legs

  • A core workout without having to do one damn crunch

15-Minute Total Body Stretch

15-Minute Total Body Stretch

When I was younger I used to scoff at the whole stretch/yoga thing. While I did the typical after workout stretches with my clients and classes I was never really committed to maintaining any type of flexibility program personally.

I thought I would be young, agile and free from tight muscles and tendons forever. Ha! Then I entered my mid-life.

It’s Fine to Have a Tight A**

While it is admirable to have a tight behind, or tight and toned thighs, what is not so charming is the inability to touch your toes.

Tightness in the muscle, tendons and fascia happens through age, overuse, underuse as well as injury.

When we age, we lose some of the water in the tendons, making them stiffer and more susceptible to injury.

When we overuse a muscle we can create muscle tightness because it is always in a contracted state. And when we underuse our muscles, such as sit in one position for long periods of time (like me sitting here writing this blog), we create muscle tightness as a result of the restriction in movement.

All of this can add years to your body, as well as decrease your quality of life.

 How Much Stretching?

This can all be avoided, though, with a regular stretch program – and with a HUGE emphasis on the word REGULAR.

Because tissue is elastic in nature it will always go back to its original length. So, stretching once or twice a week will not train that muscle to stay in the new lengthen position you are asking it to stay in.

This is even more true after the age of 40.

To really see changes in your flexibility, and keep your body agile and young,  you need to stretch every day.

Aim for 5 minutes a day to start and work yourself up to 15-30 minutes. The key here is consistency.

Total Body Stretch For All Levels

Join loving husband and I in this total body stretch routine. It’s perfect for all levels of flexibility, and a great addition for after your workout as well as first thing in the morning.

15-Minute Ab Workout

15-Minute Ab Workout

This was one of the funniest videos to film with loving husband. In this particular workout we have a lovely debate about what words you can and cannot say on YouTube.

You would think, after being married to me for 21 years, he would remember that I suffer from severe verbal diarrhea.

Words just come out and the wonderful thing about YouTube is that there is no censorship.

In my defense, though, I don’t really believe the word I say is one that needs to be censored. Watch the video and judge for yourself.

If workouts were kids, this one would be the good child. The one that does it’s homework, goes to bed and cleans up its room without any nagging.

In other words: it’s a functionally sound, total-body, great for all levels strength workout.

It’s the perfect go-to workout when you want to train, but you don’t feel like killing yourself (however loving husband would disagree. He was very tired after this workout).

Total Body Sculpt

Tools Needed:

  • A pair of light, moderate and heavy dumbbells
    • Beginners: 3lb – 10lb
    • Intermediate: 5lb – 12lb
    • Advanced: 8:lb – 20lb

35-Minute Bodyweight HIIT Workout

35-Minute Bodyweight HIIT Workout

35-Minute Bodyweight HIIT

Today’s workout is the PERFECT workout to do if you are:

  • Travelling and have no access to equipment
  • In need of a cardio workout
  • Looking to strengthen the legs (especially the glutes)
  • Wanting a good core workout
  • Feeling down and need a smile on your face

This workout only uses your bodyweight and is suitable for all levels.

It is also loving husband’s first harder workout with me and I wish I had a dollar for every time he moaned, groaned or rolled his eyes at me – cause after this 35-minute workout I would have had enough cash for a visit to the ol’ spa.

Loving Husband

I won’t lie. This workout almost killed loving husband. But, it’s not because it’s a super hard core workout.

It’s really because he just has not been working on his cardio lately and he is getting over a really bad cold that lasted for almost two months!

So, nonetheless, two-minutes into the warm up he was already huffing and puffing.

However, he was a great sport and he did his very best (albeit sometimes the wrong exercise at the wrong time). And that’s all a wife and a trainer can ask for.
