Musical Strength Workout

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful week so far. Thank you so again for all of your amazing comments on this post. Humpday is here! Anything fun planned? I think I’m going to grab some wine with some friends after dinner and getting the kiddos to bed. 🙂

I planned on having this post up yesterday afternoon, but we got sucked into the vortex of Livi’s new room -it’s coming together so well, so far!- and had to make a quick Ikea trip after her swim lessons. I’m really excited about this workout because it’s my favorite style: driven by awesome music. It’s similar to the last one I did here! It’s a great way to change up your strength training routine and get a total body workout while using the music as your strength motivation.

April 2016 musical strength workout and playlist

As you guys know, I’m a huge fan of using music to drive workout motivation. Whether I’m teaching a class or enjoying my own sweat session, a killer playlist can really pump me up. I always love thinking about exercises that work well with the music (it’s the dancer in me), and putting together ideas to share with ya. Here’s the latest, featuring some of my current favorite songs. When I’m feeling better again, I’d like to share some live/video workouts like this so we can do them together! In the meantime, let me know how it is, k?

This made me laugh way harder than it should have. Ok, currently I don’t either. 😉 (You know, that whole “6 weeks of rest” thing.)

Spring clean your fitness routine

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? I am still recovering from returning from Vegas + Daylight Savings. Not a good combo, but in Vegas, time doesn’t matter. 😉 It was totally worth it. Miss P thinks that waking up at 6:30, which is really 5:30, is pretty hilarious. We jumped right back into things on […]

TRX Superset Workout

Hi friends! Happy humpday! Hope you’re enjoying the week. 🙂 I am DRAGGING today, which is totally my fault because I stayed up way too late reading this book.

Get more out of your core workout

Hi friends! How’s the day going? Hope you’re having a great afternoon. The NBA draft is tomorrow (!) so this basketball nerd has ESPN on non-stop.

Be Your Own Personal Trainer: adjustments and corrections

Drop set circuit

Hiiiiii! How’s the day going? Hope you’re having a lovely afternoon. (We’re equally obsessed with the lavender growing in the yard. Any ideas for what to do with it?

Get more out of your leg workout

Compound crusher workout

  Hi guys! Hope you’re enjoying your day so far <3 It’s been an interesting week. I fully believe that the full moon affects energy/mood/toddler behavior.

Les Mills BODYPUMP Instructor training

Under the Group Fitness umbrella, there are many little spokes: their own unique worlds, and […]
