It’s that time of the year when I dread hitting the gym at my normal time, right after dropping the children off at school. I usually spend about 1 hour doing an active workout and 15 minutes stretching. However, once January 1st hits, I usually do as many home workouts as I can until mid February when the resolution exercisers decide to ditch the gym.
I like to plan out my workouts and being that today was my leg and ab day, I designed a fairly quick and efficient workout to perform at home before we had painters arrive.
Warm Up: Run Stairs 3 minutes.
Legs: 5 rounds 30 seconds work, 30 seconds rest before moving to next exercise.
- BOSU Squats with 20 lb Kettlebell
- Walking Lunges using Bodyweight
- TRX Jump Squats
- Hamstring Curls on Stability Ball
- TRX Reverse Single Leg Lunge (Repeat on opposite leg)
- One Arm Kettlebell Swings with 20 lb bell
***You don’t need the equipment I have to perform these exercises. Standard squats are fine. Reverse lunges are a good substitution for the TRX lunges. You can use dumbbell for stationary squat instead of the swing.***
Abs: 5 rounds 30 seconds work, 30 seconds rest before moving onto next exercise.
- Decline Punch Plank
- Decline Walking Plank
- Decline Shoulder Tap Plank
- Decline Spiderman Plank
*** I used my stairs to help with decline. You can do these flat on the floor***
I had a decent calorie burn after this workout:
