Happy Monday and happy JULY! Days are flying. We finally have all of our furniture and household goods delivered and unpacked. Put away/set up is another story… but the gym is getting assembled today! Im so ready to get back into my regular routine. Unpacking is a pretty decent workout though according to my fitness watch lol
Do each exercise, rest for a minute, then repeat. Try to do 3-4 rounds total.
**180 squat jumps – Sit low, then jump and land in a 180* turn. Make sure you alternate to go both ways.
**Narrow Push Up – Do these against a counter/bench, on your knees, or standard toes on the floor. Keep elbows closer to your body instead of wide like a regular push up. Just make sure body is in a straight line from shoulders to knees/toes. No sagging or sticking your butt out.
**Mountain climbers – 20 total, 10 each leg. However you want to count it.
**Static lunge – Step one foot back behind you wide enough to lunge. Lower your back knee down into a lunge position, then back up, and back down. No stepping back together between. Do that 10 times and switch legs.
**Inchworms – Y’all know I love these 😉 Stand tall, bend to touch your toes then walk your hands out into plank position, then back into your feet, then stand or jump up again. 10 times.
Be sure you’re getting in a warm up and cool down. A few rounds of air squats, arm circles, butt kicks, jumping jacks, walking lunges, torso twists…just get those muscles warm before you put them to work. Then stretch out when you’re done.
Happy sweating! Lets start this week off right! Let me know if you have any questions about this challenge or other training options.
Hey Fit Friends! Just wanted to jump on here and let y’all know (if you aren’t following on Instagram or Facebook) that February’s FitCamp is FREE! That’s right. Freeee! It’s a short month so instead of a full 4 week paid program, like I usually offer, this will be a shorter 3 week workout schedule.
I wanted to give anyone that has been thinking of joining a GMF FitCamp the chance to try it out for the month with no commitment. Other than the shorter timeline nothing else is changing!
In February you’ll still get:
We will still be doing our workouts, you’ll still get your ebook guide with all of the nutrition info, recipes, workouts, and more, you’ll still get access to the private Facebook group for the month and the same online coaching by me! The whole shabang.
The thing is though, I’m opening the group up NEXT week! I’ll also be sending the download links out this Friday so if you’re interested in joining sign up now! All you need to do these FitCamp workouts will be a set of dumbbells and a chair or bench to step up on. The holidays are over and summer will be here before you know it, then fall and holidays all over again! Now is the time to get to work and build the habits that will make your year of fitness successful. You can join us by clicking here or up on the FitCamps tab above. Can’t wait for y’all to be a part of this!
Hey, Fit Friends! Happy Fit Friday! If you’re part of the free Facebook Fit Friends group then you’ve been following along with our January challenge. It’s Friday, TGIF! Time for a new workout. This week is a slightly modified FitCamp workout that I love and have been doing the last couple weeks. It will get your heart rate up, sweat pouring, and muscles burning. It’s a keeper.
Fit Friday Circuit Workout:
Complete 4 rounds of this workout! After each round rest for 1-2 minutes. Don’t wait too long but make sure you catch your breath and grab some water between. Spiderman Planks and Bicycle Crunches can be done at 10 or 20 total, or per side depending on your level. Also, Lunge Kicks should be done 10 on one side, then 10 on the other. Feet Circles, 10 circles in each direction.
If you have questions on any of this leave a comment or join the Fit Friends group on Facebook and we will discuss it there!
Remember, before starting a workout make sure you warm up with some dynamic movements (no static/holding it still stretches) Move around, get that heart rate up while warming up the muscles!
