WORKOUT :: Simple Done For You
Today I’ve got two new workout routines. I would love for you to see how simple it can be to get your exercise in without over thinking the process.
My last workout blog, Workout: Getting Started Routine, gave my 3 best tips for beginners and seasoned exercisers alike to stay consistent.
1. Use Your Own Body Weight First.
2. Keep Your Routine Simple.
3. Start With A Few Minutes, Then Build Up.
In that post, I shared a Body Weight Video I made with Mercola Peak Fitness and a Body Weight Video of my own I made of a few simple exercises. I did that workout for 10 minutes and it kicked my booty. No Joke.
In the video below, I am demonstrating the exact exercises I performed in the HIIT – High Intensity Intervals For Beginners with a progression.
I have added dumbbells.
10 Air Squats BECOMES Top or Bottom Loaded Squats
10 Burpees BECOMES Burpees + Over Head Press
10 Push Ups BECOMES Push Ups + Row
10 Side Lunges BECOME Top or Bottom Loaded Side Lunges
10 Sit Ups BECOMES Top Loaded Sit Up + Over Head Press
Another great way to progress from body weight exercises is to use resistance bands. Dr. Mercola wrote a fantastic article about the benefits of resistance bands. You can read that article here: 10 Benefits of Using Resistance Bands for Exercise.
I also helped create a video of resistance band demonstrations with the Mercola team. Watch that video here:
I hope you like these videos. I’ve got more coming.
Stay tuned and as always, Share!
Strength & Love,
