My New Favorite Arm Workout!!

I wanted to share this awesome arm workout I just found and started! So far I’m loving it and really recommend it!

Its from Chrissa Physical Kitchness. If you haven’t checked out her blog than you need to NOW! There is a killer Pomegranate Brussels Sprouts Salad with Paleo Poppyseed Dressing recipe that I cannot wait to try!

 

For this workout I like to use 15lbs dumbbells and do 25 reps for each workout then do one or two more sets! The beauty of weights is that you can use heavy weights or heck cans out of your pantry! If you are a beginner start with maybe 8-10 reps and lighter weights. ALL images are ©Physical Kitchness

One of my favorite things about arm workouts is that you can do them any where at any time {unless we’re talking power lifting…but thats an entirely different thing!!} Seriously though, you can get a good workout in during your favorite tv show. Happy workout!

“Jump” Start your Cardio with TKO Sports

TKO-logo

Happy Good Morning! Who’s ready for some workout gear talk? When I was a kid I LOVED to jump rope at recess. There was just something so fun about it and as a kid I never seemed to get tired! Somewhere over time I guess I thought too old for it. Then about a year ago my twins each got a jump rope as a prize from a carnival type game. They were so excited and I have to admit I was too. They of course asked mommy to show them how it done….Oh my gosh I REMEMBERED jumping rope is SO MUCH FUN! Why did I stop having jump rope fun!?! Whoa rabbit trail…the point is I was beyond thrilled about getting a new adult sized jump EEKKK!

About TKO Sports “At TKO Sports Group USA Limited, we are committed to building a company that inspires the design of innovative products in the promotion of wellness and healthy living. Whatever It Takes is not just a tag line, it’s our lifestyle.”

I love my TKO Soft-Grip Jump Rope in Plum + Cherry {my absolute favorite color combo!!!}

TKO

When my TKO Soft-Grip Jump Rope arrived I was SO excited and I’ve got to tell you it does NOT disappoint!  This rope is AWESOME and was specifically built for speed making it be a fantastic and fun way get my cardio in.

This jump rope is extremely light and the grips are super comfortable and easy to grip. I did have a little bit of a learning curve while holding the rope…so I haven’t really used a jump rope from the century, did you no long have grip the handles as tight a physically possible?! {gotta love those 80’s PE jump ropes 😉 } I quickly realized keeping my grip light made easier and way more fun!

I have had so much fun with this I started searching for jump rope workouts on pinterest! Here is the one I have so far liked the best because you can do which ever jumping style you prefer! I HIGHLY recommend having a bottle of water or two around during this workout!

I think I will be creating one in the near future!

So let me ask you, do you remember ways to jump rope?

TKO2

There are so many fun ways to use a jump rope like…

  • Basic Jump
  • Reverse Jump
  • Criss-Cross
  • One-Foot Jumps
  • Double unders
  • Agility drills

Something I really love about having a jump rope in my daily fitness routine is the ability to be creative…if you can think of it you can do it!

Why use a jump rope?

  • It’s portable! A jump rope can be taken and used pretty much any where. I like to take mine with me and jump rope while by boys are in tae kwon do!
  • In just 15 minutes you can burn 170 calories! WHAT?!!? yes!
  • Perfect for cardio and HIIT {High intensity interval training} at home. I actually love using my jump rope during the commercial brakes of my favorite shows!
  • You can get in some awesome family time…well at least we did by having fun jump rope challenges!
  • Helps with build stamina…seriously. The first time I used my jump rope I felt exhausted after just a few minutes, but with in just days I was able to easily jump rope for 15 minutes!
  • It’s probably the most inexpensive piece of exercise equipment you will find.

Perks of the TKO Soft-Grip Jump Rope

  • Lightweight
  • 9 feet smooth PVC rope
  • Non-Slip Soft Grip Handle
  • Smooth Swivel Design for Agility Training
  • Fun colors to choose from

If you have read this and are thinking about going out and getting a jump rope so you can have as much fun as me I highly recommend giving this one a try!

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.

Christina Carlyle Booty Workout!

Who else loves Christina Carlyle? She is awesome and this workout from her site proves just how much she wants to help anyone achieve their fitness goals, anyone can do this workout not matter your size or fitness level!

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.

Do 3 full sets – of all 6 exercises – to complete your workout – I like to do 30 reps each! Not exactly sure how to go all the moves? Head over to Christina’s website for a video of this workout! 

Christina has a bunch of other great stuff that she offers so keep an eye over the next few week for some other great stuff!
