Since I’ve been doing my home workouts for a couple of weeks now I thought I’d share with you guys the little workouts I’ve doing to help keep me in shape and tone up.
The one thing I absolutely love about working out at home is how quick and easy it is. It means I don’t have to trek to the gym and take two hours out of my day. All these workouts are under thirty minutes which is perfect and they’re a good mixture of HIIT training, kickboxing (which I love), abs exercises and yoga (which is something I’ve really gotten into recently).
This workout is just over twenty minutes and is perfect after a weekend of indulgence. It’s HIIT so that means it’s quick, powerful and sweaty. It also helps that the beautiful Joe Wicks aka The Body Coach is doing the exercises along side me. I’m going to lie, it’s not easy but if you only have half an hour to spare it’s a brilliant workout.
I’ve put these two workouts together as they’re done by the same YouTube channel and are both kickboxing. The only difference is that one is only 11 minutes and one is 25 minutes long. Fitness Blender is a brilliant channel with loads of fantastic workouts but my favourites are the kickboxing ones. I do the 11 minute one when I’m super busy and have hardly any time to workout but it’s just as good as the 25 minute one. I mean seriously I did the 11 minute one a few days ago and my arms are still aching.
The brilliant thing about the 25 minute workout is that it includes a warm up and cool down. If your feeling stressed it’s also a great reliever!
To work my abs, I love doing this six pack workout that’s on the XHIT Daily YouTube channel. It’s about 11 minutes long and really works all the muscles in the stomach in a really short space of time. You repeat every move twice so by the end of it your abs are aching!
Recently, I’ve really gotten into yoga. It’s a lovely way to stretch out my muscles after a long week and really relaxing. The channel I use is Yoga With Adrienne and she was loads and loads of yoga workouts for you to do from the comfort of your own home. She also really explains each move to you so if you’re not feeling a sweaty sesh give this a go!
So there my favourite home workouts at the moment. However, I’m pretty sure I’ll get a little bored of these in a month or so and I’ll need to switch it up again but what’s brilliant with working out at home is that when I do get a little restless alls I have to do is go on YouTube and find a new workout to do. Brilliant!
