This week has been rather stressful for several reasons, I didn’t even realise that I was stressed until Friday afternoon where I just cried!
Well I felt much better after that cathartic cry!
However today I thought would do a new workout to make me feel a little calmer.
The workout focuses on a cardio routine, thighs and bum and core.
- 60seconds of skipping
- 90seconds of jumping jacks
- 30seconds of high knees (no slacking)
- Repeat 3 and then
- 20seconds forward legs swings on each leg
- 20seconds arm swings on each arm
Thigh & bums;
40 seconds intensive and 20 seconds high knees between each activity
- Sadle bag shifter squat
- Ballerina Plie Jump
- Touch down squat
- Three point cirles
- Calorie Burner Squat
Sadle bag shift squats
Slightly squat with legs at hips space appart, raise each leg directly to the side and bring bag down
Ballerina Plie Jump
Legs in a plie position, three bouncing/pulsing squats, jump legs in together and back again
Touch down squat
Place a target on the floor, maybe a book, squat and reach down to touch the target. Make sure your knees don’t go over feet – stick that bum out!
Three point circles
Slightly bend one leg, using the other to touch a point in front, to the side and behind – over exaggerating each movement
Calorie Burner Squat
Regular squat, bounces twice and jump up high and back down – repeat
End with a 30second set of high knees to finish off
Standing Ab Workout
- 30 seconds stranding leg kicks
- 20 seconds on each leg and alternate – Elbow to Knee
- 30 seconds standing leg kicks
- 30 seconds alternating side bends
- 30 seconds bow and arrow left and right
- 30 seconds ab sweep left and right
I really enjoyed this routine, this is definitely a weekend workout as it took a little longer than a week night workout – this one would take half an hour with rests between each activity slot. I then did a quick arm routine. If you want to know my arm workout let me know.
