Here is the workout plan that Brandyn and I are going to work on at home while the gym is closed. It is a push pull workout with accessories. Do the Push Day, Pull Day, Leg Day and the Ab Day, and then choose one or two days of additional days (push or pull accessory days or the glute day), to add some oomph to your weekly routine while training from home.
Brandyn and I have an exercise ball, adjustable dumbbells, resistance loops, resistance bands, ankle weights and a pullup bar at home. If you have the same types of equipment at home, please join us!
If you don't have the equipment and would like any modifications or substitutions to these exercises, just let me know and I will give some to you!
DAYS 1 thru 4:
1 to 2 ADDITIONAL DAYS:
I spoke to someone today who said that they were going to go to the store to grab a set of dumbbells so that they could do some at home workouts while the gyms are closed. WHAT A FANTASTIC IDEA! If you are looking for a workout to do at home with your new set of dumbbells, try this circuit!
Grab a set that you would consider light, medium and heavy weight and grab a timer so that you can get your sweat on!
Watch your timer and complete one exercise every 30 seconds. Rest for 1 minute (don't forget to hydrate) and repeat 4-8 times (depending on how much time you have to workout).
PM me on Facebook if you have any questions about this workout.
I was just thinking that with social gatherings not being a thing anymore, my new found free time that I have during my lunch hour (since the gym is closed) can't be filled up with meeting someone at a restaurant for lunch. Damn!
I have been slacking big time with my meal planning lately and have been relying heavily on restaurants, but I am going to have to be better with my meal planning. What better time to form a new habit than when the world is topsy-turvy?! Am I right?
For me, meal planning means breakfast at home (or something easy for on-the-go), snacks for work, lunches packed for work & dinners that will be quick, easy and healthy for my family.
My family LOVES snacks, so I am tackling that one first. Here are some ideas for healthy snacks to pack for work or for your family. TIP: Try matching a protein with a veggie or a fruit with a healthy fat.
1. Sweet Potato Bagel Chips & Greek Yogurt Dip
2. Cinnamon Apples & Cottage Cheese
3. BBQ Kale Chips & Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip
4. Low Carb Cauliflower Hummus & Raw Veggies
5. Carrot Cake Energy Bites
6. Hard Boiled Eggs (Try making them in your Instapot)
7. Ham with Raw Cucumbers & Grape Tomatoes
8. Baked Apple Chips & Cream Cheese
9. Apples & Peanut Butter
10. Chef's Salad Lettuce Wrap
PS. I found a lot of these ideas on Pinterest so hang out there for a bit to grab some more ideas!
It's so crazy to think about the way life has changed in the last few days! For those of us who have taken the gym for granted for so long, to not having access to a gym tomorrow is almost unfathomable!
Tomorrow my day will not start in the gym with clients and it won't end in the gym with clients the way that it has for the last few years! Life as we know it has changed with Covid-19, but I plan on making sure that it does not affect my goals. I hope that everyone reading this plans to continue to stay strong, active and healthy through this crisis.
