If you know me at all, you know that my true passion is teaching fitness. I love it. Love, love, love, LOVE it. I love the moaning and groaning. I love the swearing. I love the energy of group fitness. Mostly, I love that I get to help people do things they never thought they’d do (one-armed burpee anyone?).
Last night I got to teach the Hot Mama Westshore group for a “Pop-Up” class and although I’d been working since 3am, when I finished teaching I was filled with such joy and love for fitness and the women surrounding me.
With all that goodness, I thought I’d share the workout we did last night. No equipment needed. Just yourself, a water bottle, a sweat towel, a mat and a desire to go, go GO!
This workout is about 45 minutes long and involves both cardio and strength training. Enjoy!
4 Blocks of Cardio matched with 4 Blocks of Strength exercises.
The Cardio blocks include 3 exercises, each done for 30 seconds. Then you rest for 30 seconds. That equals 2 minutes. Repeat that 3 times, so the total cardio block is 6 minute for each block.
The Strength blocks also include 3 exercises but you do each exercise for 1 minute, no rest. The only change is that at the 30 second mark for each exercise you switch from doing the exercise with full range of motion to a pulse. For example, in Strength Block 1 you’ll do full squats for 30 seconds and then you’ll squat pulse for 30 seconds.
Complete Cardio Block A then Strength Block A. Then move to Cardio Block B then Strength Block B, etc.
Ooooooh la laaaaa…you’re going to have some fun with this one! Muwah!
