Hi friends! I’m so glad you guys liked Tuesday’s Pilates inspired workout.
I am really looking forward to incorporating more Pilates and barre moves into my circuits and hope to move back into creating videos and such that include me actually doing the demonstrations in the future.
For now, I gathered up three rounds of exercises I have previously featured on the blog. I purposely wanted to do so in order to get you familiar with some of my favorite go-to exercises you’ll surely see again.
Complete each circuit round twice, consecutively, then take a quick rest and grab water in-between each section!
25 Min. At-Home Circuit Workout
All you really need for this workout is a clock (or cell phone stopwatch) and a set of free weights. I used tens and dropped to one to hold in the center for the side lunge + lifts. Oh, and just for fun, I skipped the sneakers and substituted grippy yoga/barre socks.
Even on carpet, they really do rock!
If you aren’t fully familiar or comfortable with all of the workout exercises, please see the video demonstrations linked below for guidance.
*Always remember to listen to your body and modify the exercises as needed. Also, keep in mind that I post what works best for me, but that might not be the right type of exercises for you.
*Please use the video references as a guide and listen for tips on form. I always recommend consulting a doctor before drastically changing up your current fitness routine!
New Fruity Smoothie
After the workout, I hopped in the shower and craved something light and refreshing when I got out. Wanting to try something new, I threw a fantastic combination of ingredients into the blender.
Frozen spinach, purple grapes (a lot of them!), a banana, and a nectarine.
I have never used a nectarine in smoothies before, and I rarely use grapes. It may look questionable, but I assure you that it is actually one the best tasting sweet and fruity smoothies I’ve made yet!
I hope you all have a great start to your day. I have a busy one planned, but hope to check back in later with a reader requested post all about “me” time. Happy Thursday!
