A Napping Baby Workout

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a workout, so this post is long overdue!! I know my blog has kind of been all over the place lately with the addition of my kiddos, me being a new mom, and staying at home. But the real heart of it has always been exercise: what people are doing, how to fit it in, what I like doing, what I want to try etc. With that said, I’m planning on sharing more workouts! Yay!

I’ve always been a fan of short efficient workouts. And these days, they are my go-to. Squeezing in a workout during naptime really is the best….it gives me a good mental break as well as the physical benefits. And honestly, I’ve noticed the biggest change in my body when I added in some HIIT type workouts. SO here ya go, get that sweat on!

Perform each exercise for 30 seconds each & repeat 3x through. Form tips and exercise explanations are below! {I used 5 pound weights, use something that feels tough the last 5 seconds of each exercise}

Below are some links to exercise demonstrations….maybe I will get fancy soon enough and do my own videos!!!

Down dog Push-ups

Curtsey Lunge with Chest Press  (perform chest press instead of a front raise)

Cross Over Jacks

Plank Up Downs

Back Lunge with Hop & Press (Add a hop with your front leg as you bring your legs parallel)

Twisting Mountain Climbers

Bridge with a Chest Press

Squat Jumps

Thanks for stopping by, I’m hoping to share some easy at home workouts more often & film some videos too! If you complete the workout, use the hashtag #fitgirlpwworkout, I’d love to see your check-ins!

Barre at Home in 10 Minutes

Hello there!

Today I’m coming at you with a quick at-home barre workout. Those of you with you kiddos know that some days all you have is 10 minutes. I love being able to get out of the house and making it into the studio for class, but I also like the option of doing something at home-even if it is for 10 minutes!

It’s almost impossible to get some alone time at home- so C & D are helping me out with the mini photo sesh! 🙂

The lovely people from SimplyWorkout sent me the “You Had Me at Barre Shirt” as well as my sticky socks! {these are so lightweight I’ve been wearing them around the house lately). My pants are Beyond Yoga (my favorite) from last winter.
