If you can believe it, my arms and shoulders were still a little sore from that Jillian Michael's Yoga Meltdown DVD that I did in the beginning of the week.
Today I managed to finally fit a workout in. I wasn't going to go another day without working out because that's how that dangerous slide into not working out begins. And it's only January 7th! So, I found a workout on YouTube. My hubby was once again playing video games on the TV, so it's nice that I can find workouts on YouTube on my laptop.
Today I decided to find a bodyweight workout. What does that mean? It means I don't need any equipment except my very own body. Can't beat that. A free workout with instruction and no equipment needed.
The workout was around 30 minutes long and had 3 circuits with 4 exercises each. I'm not sure how long each exercise was. I know that there was a 1 minute break between each circuit. Each circuit was the 4 different exercises, done twice. So for instance, there would be one cardio exercise, then one leg exercise, then a plank version and then a situp. These are just examples. You do all 4 exercises for a certain amount of time, then you do them again, then you get a one minute break to get water, etc. Then you do another circuit. Then the one minute break and then the third circuit. So, each circuit is about 9 minutes each.
Here's what I liked about this video:
- There is a warm-up and cool-down.
- She explains each move before you begin the circuits.
- She explains body position for each move.
- She has ways to modify for beginners and advanced.
- There is a 1 minute break between circuits to take a water break.
- She has modifications if you would like to add hand weights.
She also had more videos that I might try at another point in time.
