Early Morning + Summer Workout

9.jpg

These hot summer days can make it extremely difficult to get a workout in, especially if you workout at home and not a gym! Heat is so exhausting and can stop you in your tracks even if you have the best intentions.

If you have been plagued with the “too damn hot” summer woes then her are a few tips that might help!

EARLY morning!
If you are not a morning person then I know you just cringed! I used to HATE getting up early. I used to tell people I’d “NEVER” be a morning person! I used to dread morning workouts. Then one day my husband and I decided that we needed some more time together. With all the kids activities and our busy schedule we were in desperate need of us time! I mean time to talk not fall asleep on the coach (I know you know what I mean). We decided to start getting up at 5:45 to do a morning 2 mile walk. We loved it from day one and surprisingly within a few days I was a morning person. We now get up at 5am six days a week and have zero regrets! The first Saturday we got up at 5 was amazing! By 9am we had done a 5k, did outdoor painting, did our weekly shopping trip, went to Starbucks and cleaned the pool!

Not sold on early? No worries the workout below is the perfect “wake up” workout! You can do it anywhere (so if you travel it’s great) and you can do it according to your schedule!

Want to be extra challenged?
Complete the workout 3-6x
Do the workout as fast as you can with short breaks between each set.

You can also write down how fast you do each set and try to beat your time each day!

It’s summer so be sure you STAY HYDRATED! I recommend this Hydro Flask! It’s amazing and keeps water icy cold all day long even in the hot sun.

I stumbled upon this workout a while back and honestly forgot about it. It just popped up again and I’m starting it NOW! Join me if you want some booty pop!

These butt lifting exercises use body weight and multi-directional movements so you can target all of the muscles in your glutes.  Together the best butt lifting exercises will perk up your booty quickly.

Plus, the rep count strategy we’ll be using will help lift and tight the butt, not build mass in your legs.

GearBunch Legging Love!

GearBunch is the best place on the web to find the leggings you’re longing for. It’s with great pride that we offer all-over printed apparel and accessories of the highest quality — and for an affordable price. We start with the best possible quality of fabric and use high-end printers and machines to create leggings with an unmatchable level of quality and comfort. Browse our products below, and once you complete your order on our website, the printing process begins — and your all-over printed items will be at your door in a matter of days.

Who doesn’t love a great pair of leggings? I know I do! Recently I received a pair of Gear Bunch leggings and from the first wear I was in love!

Colorful Dead - Sugar Skull Leggings - GearBunch Leggings / Yoga Pants

What’s GearBunch? It’s a great online store that has TONS and TONS of different prints of leggings, but GearBunch is more than just leggings, they have hoodies, shoes and more!

unnamed-12I received these GORGEOUS sugar skull leggings! OMG! Swoon right? I LOVE the Day of the Dead and sugar skulls, I have them everywhere {my instant pot is even decorated in sugar skulls…its a serious obsession!} from the moment I saw these I knew they were meant to be mine.

unnamed-13

Every time I wear them I get so many compliments! In fact on more than one occasion someone who has inquired about them ordered right then and there!
These leggings are soft and comfy…like I’m talking you will want to live in them! My sugar skull legging are perfect for a gym workout, a grocery store run, a long car ride or just lounging with the kiddos watching Coco…again day of the dead and sugar skulls ;)!
There are a ton of to choose…colors, style and length!

Some of my favorite legging categories:
Skull Leggings & Skeleton Leggings There are a ton of different styles to choose from!
American Leggings I LOVE the Ronald Reagan Leggings SO much!

 

Below I’m answering some very important legging questions!
The specs: 

Fabric is 82% polyester, 18% spandex
Four-way stretch
Squat Proof
Elastic waistband
Precision-cut and hand-sewn after printing

Squat Proof?

Yes! I tested with a dark pair of undies and you could a slight darkening, but my leggings are mostly white so I would NEVER wear colored underwear under these. Always opt for a white, nude or thong when wearing lighter leggings!

Camel Toe?

No! Because of the seam there isn’t any in the slightest! Don’t know what cameltoe is? Google it…#beaware

Sizing:

The Gear Bunch leggings go from XSmall – XLarge, and their sizing chart in my opinion is pretty spot on. So check your measurements and the chart and order your size from that! These leggings are full length and high waisted on me (I’m barely over 5ft so pretty much everything unless it’s super low rise is high on my waist.

sizing chart

Price:

These are a bit on pricier side at $87.99 but I personally feel them are worth it!

Quality:

These are made with a 82% polyester + 18% spandex fabric with a really nice
Four-way stretch. These are honestly more luxurious than a lot of the other leggings I have. There has been zero seam splitting or fraying after all the wears and workouts they’ve been through. A pair of my very expensive, very well known brand frayed after just a few wears.

Some other favorites from GearBunch:

I want to extend a HUGE Thank You to Martina at GearBunch!!

*Although GearBunch did send me these leggings as a thank you, I did not agree to give a positive review no matter what I really thought and I was not compensated for this post.  All thoughts + opinions are 100% my own. ALL images are © The Life in Bloom & GearBunch.
