So this week I’ve been working all over the place traveling to Chicago, Dallas and NYC. In all three locations I’ve been shocked by the sudden decrease in temperature. 50 degree weather in Dallas in September is unheard of! That said I have a sense of urgency to get a few more outdoor workouts in before it’s too cold. As I shared last week, working out at my local park is one of my favorite End of Summer/Early Fall Activities so I made up a special workout to do this weekend. To complete the workout, all you need is an open space, a 50 yard hill and a park bench or sturdy chair (no weights or other equipment required). I designed the workout as a total body HIIT (high intensity interval training) circuit so you can repeat the series below as many times as you’d like. I recommend doing it 2-3 times for a full cardio and strength training workout. It should take you ~30 minutes to complete…
Happy “Keep-it-Tight Tuesday!” Last Sunday, I survived a triple header teaching 3 classes in 1 day = Boot camp, TurboKick and Indoor Cycling. My legs are on fire today which tells me that the workouts were effective. I’m especially proud of the boot camp workout I designed, so I wanted to share it with you guys! It’s a hardcore, 1 hour workout. To complete it, you will need 2 medium dumbbells (about 8 pounds each) and a step/low bench. Most of the exercises are complex movements, which means you work 2 major muscle groups at the same time – super efficient. Also, there are various cardio intervals included in each working set. Finally, I tacked on 5 minutes of ab work at the finale!
Be sure to stretch and drink plenty of water after the workout to prevent sore muscles. Enjoy and let me know how it goes! Lots of luv, Brit
How bout dem COWBOYS?! I’m starting my week on super positive note by celebrating a big (yet ugly) Dallas Cowboys victory over the New York Giants. 1-0 is a great start to the season! While watching the game last night, I had the idea to create a workout that would help me get a body like a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader (DCC)… Personally, I know several of the DCC ladies and let me tell you what, they work their booties off! I’m talking boot camps, hours of practices, strength training, hard-core dance rehearsals – it’s no joke. So, in the spirit of football season and in acknowledgment of the awesome bodies of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders – here’s boot camp style football field workout just a for you! No equipment is needed. The entire workout should take you about 45 minutes and expect to burn 600 calories. Enjoy and GOOOOOOOO COWBOYS! Lots of luv, Brit
