Work it Out…

The weather has been so gross out lately so I have had to workout get my workouts in at home.  I have been searching YouTube for great at home workouts that burn a decent amount of calories.  I have tried a bunch and when I came across this particular video I was so excited!  The video is called BeFiT GO: 40 Min Total Body Fat Burn workout Circuit 2.  I have tried a couple of their videos and they are great I would highly recommend subscribing to their fitness channel.

For this video I used a yoga mat, chair, two 10lb dumbbells, and a 15lb kettle-ball instead of a medicine ball simply because I don’t have one.  The great thing about these types of videos is that you can tailor it to your own needs but it provides a great guideline if you want to shake up your routine or give you new ideas.  If you don’t have any fitness equipment you can still do this workout with just the floor and a chair and still get a great workout because you are using your entire body for all of the exercises.

The video is 40 minutes long and incorporates balance, strength, and cardio bursts.  I could definitely feel the burn about 10 minutes into the workout and by the end I had worked up a decent sweat.  There were a couple exercises in this workout that I loved and can’t wait to add into my regular group of go-tos.  My favorite is the plank with dumbbells into a side plank and lateral arm raise.  I could feel this working my core, balance, and arms all in one move!

I did this workout two days ago and burned around 340 calories in 40 mins and I am still feeling it today.  My thighs haven’t been this sore in a long time!  This was a great video and I will be using it a lot!  I hope that you check it out and let me know what you think!

I deff suggest investing in a good quality yoga mat, you can use them for so many different types of workouts not just yoga. This one is lululemon and it doesn’t roll up or loose its shape its awesome!
