I love finding workouts on YouTube and I’ve been building a playlist of favorites over the past few months. Once the playlist hit 45 videos, I thought, “LET’S DO THIS!”
Now that I’ve completed Week 1 of this Home Workout Challenge, I thought I’d share here. Just in case anyone wants to give it a go! No gym membership, class pass, or leaving the house necessary. Just you showing up for yourself (oh, and an internet connection)! Feel like accepting the challenge? Do one workout a day, whatever time suits you best. (I’m a 7:30 pm girl, myself.) And start on a Tuesday — Mondays have enough going on as it is!
Starting off simple with ten minutes and some light hand-weights.
Admittedly not a huge fan of the terms “fat-frying” or “bikini-body”…but this is a good workout nonetheless. If you can get past the weird interactions between the instructor and her sidekicks.
YouTube workout pro-tip: If there’s an instructor you like, travel back in their archives. This Blogilates throwback is from 2011!
My quads were saying HELLOOOO! the morning after this one.
Really just a glorified rest day if you’re already pretty into yoga. But a great excuse to roll out the mat and stretch!
Looks easy. Is, in fact, NOT EASY. You will likely flail around.
Before there was YouTube I totally was one of those people who had cardio dance DVDs. You too? Then this workout should feel familiar.
That’s it for Week 1! I’ll post again when I’ve made it through Week 2. ‘Til then! xoxo
P.S. How to ditch your gym membership and arguably the greatest YouTube workout of ALL TIME!
