I don’t miss the gym as much as I thought I would at this point.During the beginning of the “stay at home order,” I missed having access to all forms of workout equipment.
I also missed teaching spin class, going to Barre3 and just having my own space during the down times at work.I’ve developed a new love for doing more HIIT workouts and incorporating body weight exercises.
While I always liked HIIT workouts, I used to do them only twice a week. Now I am doing them about 3-4 times a week in my “shed gym.” When it comes to body weight exercise… I HATE them. Or hated I should say.Lately I’ve been loving them a ton ever since Heather Robertson released her ‘Mash Up HIIT.‘ There was a point where burpees came in for the next move and I was about to modify to something else, but I said nope… I’m going to do it.
Towards the end of the workout she had another set of burpees and I was [again] about to modify and I said “NOPE, I’m going to do it”
I was surprised that I was able to push through both sets of burpees.
I mixed in some of Heather’s workouts, like this workout.
In four weeks, I lost about 6lbs, a few inches and felt so much stronger.
Here is what my fitness routine currently looks like:
Mondays: Mash Up HIIT
Fridays: Shoulders & Triceps [Virtual HIIT Bootcamp]
Saturday: Total Body Cardio HIIT [Virtual HIIT Bootcamp]
Not every week is exactly the same; sometimes I do a whole week of just my Virtual HIIT [Bootcamp] and others I’ll mix in some of Heather’s workouts.
But for the most part it looks like the above layout; focusing on strength twice a week and cardio/ HIIT workouts 3-4 times a week.
On some of my rest days, I’ll do Yoga or a Barre3 workout; it varies depending on my mood. 😉
There you have it!
