ALWAYS find time for things that make you happy to be alive. #happy
For me, the Gym + the ability to use my body usually keep me pretty damn ecstatic. Ammmiritee?
So I know you guys mostly voted to have me put my workout on my story today but honestly having had a few new people reach out and ask questions I figured it’s helpful to explain some things for people that don’t know or are just starting ❤️ #empowerment #youcandoit ➕you can still bookmark to save it for later 💕 •••• HIIT cardio on treadmill 💦
I let myself warm up for 2 min on a light walk.
Then GO! • 30 second sprint, (push yourself to go as fast as you can!!!) • followed by 1 - 1.5 min rest walking (not too slow)
Personally, I put the incline to at least 3.5 so I can challenge myself + I find it feels better for my leggies. 🙌🏼
💡 Keep in mind it’s a good idea to raise the incline to prevent shin splints. The treadmill naturally sits downhill so it just makes sense right 🤷🏼♀️. •••• AB CIRCUIT:
• Stiff arm crunches with weight 12x
(for this one, tuck legs like normal except keep arms parallel with legs - not resting behind your head. - this ensures you’re engaging the abdominals properly without pushing with your neck or rocking on your shoulders)
• Horizontal leg lifts (lay on floor) 15x or until failure **very slow and controlled Bicycles 12x • Vertical leg lifts 12-15x
(use a power tower or find a flat bench. Sit on bench, hold onto bench behind your butt, lean back while letting your legs hang down then lift.) again slow and controlled.
REPEAT CIRCUIT 3X or until failure 💪🏼😆 Good luck babes!!! Let me know if you try it and die like me 💀😈
