Something New In My Exercise Department

Hello everyone πŸ™‚ Happy Lunar New Year!

For this Monday’s fitness post I’d like to share about something new I’ve taken on to shake up my home exercise routine.

As you probably know by now I’ve been doing mostly cardio from Zumba and Dance Fitness. Lately though I’ve been feeling the need to level up by way of taking on a structured strength training program.

A good structured training program ensures you’re doing the right amount of the right things in the right order and frequency. I like that it gives you focus, and the satisfaction of completing one is motivating.

And so last week I finally purchased and started one from my favorite online trainers Kelli and Daniel of Fitness Blender.

As a home exerciser, Fitness Blender has been and still is my go-to for online workout videos that are effective without doubt. The videos are 100% free on YouTube and they even teach you how to create a program for yourself here and here.

However, if like me you want the pros to take care of that for you, then purchasing one of their structured workout programs is a great way to go. (And it’s not even expensive, by the way).

Although Fitness Blender programs are mostly drawn up for 5 days a week, I still wanted room to do my body rolls and twerks XD (We gotta keep it fun, right?!) Good thing they have the 8-Week Maintenance/Cross-Training program which only requires doing their workouts 3 days a week.

And so since last week I’ve been on the program and it’s been great. I have all bases covered as far as working out all muscle groups are concerned and I still have room for variety πŸ™‚

How about you, what’s new in your exercise department?

    Have you tried checking out Blogilates? All of her videos are free on YouTube and her website as well! I love them because I feel like a get a dose of positivity as well as a workout each day and they are so fun. It looks like I’ll have to check out Fitness Blender, too, though!

      Wow, you have a lot of options there. I think that’s great to keep it fresh and interesting. I do feel more energetic after cardio but sluggish after strength training 😐 But anyways, best of luck to us both! πŸ™‚ And thanks so much for commenting ❀
