Fitness on the Brain.

Nowdays, my job is full-time mommy and part-time trainer at my gym (Audacity Athletics).  Obviously, since I work at a gym fitness is always on my mind!  But since becoming a mother its been a little bit more difficult to go workout, or have the brain-power necessary when arriving at the gym!  My motivation was lacking a little on Friday during my workout and I found myself dreading it and even complaining during the workout (Nancy).  UGH.  I hated hearing those non-confident words coming out of my mouth as I was overhead squating what felt like a BAJILLION pounds - it was only 65#.

Over the weekend I confronted my mental state.  I'm tired, my life has something new and my brain is still trying to process.  But I got my booty in gear and did this workout in my garage Sunday night.

4 Tabata Cycles : Each cycle  is 20 sec work, 10 sec rest - 8 rounds

Cycles 1 & 2 (move from one movement to the next each 20 second round, you should do each one 4 times at the end of the 2nd cycle of Tabata).
Dumbbell Thrusters (all I have are 8#'s, better than nothing!)
Dumbbell Curls
Push ups
Plank Hold

Cycles 3 & 4
Jumping Lunges
Jump Squats (with dumbbells)
Mountain Climbers
Hollow Body Hold

I also worked on my handstand push ups, I love that my new house has a garage!

This week I am more excited about my workouts, and so glad I have a little life to influence with our healthy lifestyle!

Try this workout and let me know how it goes, I promise you won't be disappointed!
