At Home Workout Challenge

July 7, 2015

I’ve previously talked about working out at a gym, but I also have a quick and easy at home work out that is super effective. This workout is perfect if you want great legs and an apple tush!

Start with 10 minutes of cardio! I do biking, running, hiking. It can be any cardio you want! You can even do jumping jacks! Get your heart rate up for 10 minutes!

I then immediately move into squats!

I do 3 sets of 12, and I add one rep every day!

3 sets of 13, 3 sets of 14 and so on.

Next, I do jump squats! Same amount of reps as the first set of squats, and adding an additional rep everyday!

    Love this! I just got back into running full force, and have been feeling so good that I’ve been looking for more to do – maybe I’ll just add a few squats after my daily run!

    You’re leaning just a bit too forward in your squat form. Keep your neck and spine in a straight line like you are currently, but just move your upper body a little bit more upright. Keep your booty out like you are now too. If you’re able to squat a little below parallel, you’ll see much better results but I understand some people can’t due to knee or back issues. Keep up the good work, there’s no better feeling than finishing a great workout!
