Skipping + Bodyweight HIIT Workout

skipping.bwLast Saturday was a bit of a manic day for me. Priorities were pretty much: Lou-walk, spray tan, inordinate amount of washing, pedicure then mad dash to a wedding (spectacular wedding by the way, but that’s a story for another day). Anyway, I knew I wouldn’t have time for a proper workout, but I also knew that I really needed to do something. Situations like this are tough, and the easy way out is just to skip your workout altogether. But we all know that the easy way usually isn’t the best way, right? Right.

tabatatuesdayjuly
You know what’s enough to turn even the most hardened among us into a quivering mess? Tabata. It’s bloody hard work – let’s just get that out of the road up front.

Monday…. again. Now I don’t know what kind of evil sorcery is at work here, but I’m pretty sure Mondays are rolling around faster and faster every week.

Our weekend was pretty jam-packed…. mainly filled with eating and drinking, but I did force her to work out with me both days so I’m not feeling too guilty. Or guilty at all if I’m completely honest with you.  [Read more…]

Lower Body Burner

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again – there’s something very impressive about strong glutes and legs. Forget the thigh gap, because seriously what good does that actually do you in the real world? Wouldn’t you rather know that you can kick stuff? Run if you were being chased? Climb a 6-foot fence because you were locked out of your apartment? (yep, that happened this week). [Read more…]

Happy Hump Day my darling Team!

I actually truly despise the term hump day. It brings some really ugly images to the forefront of the mind… but recently I’ve been trying to make peace with it, given that the rest of the world seems intent on making it an acceptable way to greet people on Wednesday. [Read more…]
