Want to know a big secret?
I workout EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.
You’re probably thinking “Why would anyone want to do that”
Well…I don’t go to the gym to ‘look good’ I go to the gym because I LOVE IT! and workout out helps me relieve stress.
I want to start incorporating fitness into my blog more and I know a lot of millennials or just older adults in general don’t have the time to spend hours at the gym and would much rather work out in their own space at home.
Here are some things that I recommend and use basically every day at the gym to get in a hardcore workout and will have you burning at the end!
1. RESISTANCE BAND
Resistance bands specifically work for activation – No matter what muscle you are working, it’s super important that you’re activating it using resistance bands. These babies help you build muscle AND tone up! If you want to grow the booty and get rid of inner/outer thigh fat – this thing is your BEST FRIEND, like seriously, go and get this right now.
2. MEDICINE BALL
These balls work with almost every exercise and body part! Lunges, squats, cardio, core, arms, booty, legs. This piece of equipment is the simplest and most effective way for training to lose weight and build strength and plus….throwing a ball super hard against the wall or the floor is pretty satisfying!
3. YOGA MAT
After a broken wrist AND elbow – this thing is my saviour in the gym. If you get sore wrists or elbows from doing pushups, planks and other abdominal exercises this baby gives you amazing support PLUS you won’t go slipping everywhere which is always a plus
4. TRX STRAPS
You can literally do any exercise you want with these straps, they are so versatile and anybody can use them no matter what level your at. TRX straps engage your WHOLE body. You can perform more than 300 exercise on this thing and you can do it from ANYWHERE YOU WANT! I know you want this! Go and get it! don’t be scared!
5. PEANUT BUTTER OAT PROTEIN BALLS WITH CHOC CHIPS
Yes! You read that correctly! These goodies are SOOOOO YUM!! AND HEALTHY! You can take them for lunch, a snack, dessert and a post workout snack!
I don’t generally believe that you need to have dumbbells or kettle bells to do a good workout – in fact, I RARELY use these! and if you are working out at home, you can easily find some food cans or your dog to lift up if you need some weight!
Soon I’ll be posting some workouts you can do with these pieces of equipment you can do at home AND in the gym!
GET EXCITED PEOPLE!!!
