I want to start this by saying thank you to all the babes that have been joining me the last two Wednesday’s on Instagram live for the Workout Party’s. For all those that are yet to join, basically on a Wednesday evening around 9:30pm GMT (when hopefully the kids are asleep) I have been going live on instagram and doing my workouts that I have been blogging about. I have only been live a couple of times and if I’m honest it’s been so sick. I mean it’s been so good thank you al so much, I’m usually just doing it at home alone with Ryan barking at me but it’s been so good to do it with my insta babes.
So if you haven’t joined in yet then what you doing? And don’t worry all the new mommas & people that haven’t worked out in a while, I show a modified ‘easier’ (it’s never easy to be fair) version of the exercise so don’t worry you can still join in and build your way up!
I will see all you guys Wednesday at 9:30pm GMT for the Workout PARTY!!!
In the new year I want to get a lot more interactive with you guys. I’m thinking about doing some mommy, baby, toddler, I ain’t got no kids I’m just here for the chit chat (and the wine), events. I want to be able to meet with you guys and talk about whatever it is you guys want to chat about. I also want to hold some fun workout classes much like my insta lives but in a place where we don’t have to worry about waking the baby or ending up in our neighbours house because you have jump squatted ourselves through the wall. I just want to build a place where women can come together and we can keep it real with one another so the next woman knows she isn’t alone in this. When I had Hendrix and I was going to all the singing and dancing baby classes they were great, Hendrix loved his absolute life. I just felt that momma needed a playgroup of her own with other mommas where I could ask for advice (and could drink wine & tell them the story of when I had poo in my hair for a whole entire day... yes this actually happened). So just watch this space, Muva Lo has got big things coming for you guys!! Oh and a YouTube channel is in the works 🙊
Anyway let’s get right into this workout...
Here is the 2nd in my collection of home workouts:
Sprint on the Spot into a lunge jump x1 minute
High knees running on the spot making sure you keep you back straight, no slouching. Take about 4/5 quick steps on the spot then jump in to a lunge. Keep your upper body straight, with your shoulders back, relaxed and chin up (pick a point to stare at in front of you so you don't keep looking down). Always engage your core. Step forward with one leg, lowering your hips until both knees are bent at about a 90-degree angle. Then back into the sprint, alternate lunging leg.
Squat low arms out small circles x1 minute
Make sure feet are should width apart, knees are bent, try and get as low as possible (The lower the stance the better the leg and booty works). Arms out straight in front of you making small circles continuously for a minute. Make sure core is engaged and arms stay straight.
Heisman skips or Lateral Jumps x 1 minute
Jump from right to left balancing on the ball of your foot, bring the opposite leg up towards your shoulder imagine you are trying to hit it with your knee cap. Push out as far as you can with every sideways skip, ensure your knee bends when you land to avoid injury.
Then take a 30 second break and repeat the above! Make sure you are drinking lots of water throughout this workout! Once you have repeated that give yourself 1 minute rest and go on to circuit #2.
Press up walks side to side x 1 minute
Get into a press-up position with arms and legs long, make sure your back is straight, go onto your knees if needed. Then take two steps with your hands to the right and press down. Then press up and take two to your left keeping body straight trying to not raise your bum up. Press down again. Keeping core engaged at all times.
Plank and bring knees to shoulders x 1 minute
In a plank position similar to a push up position keeping arms and legs long, you just want your feet slightly wider as you are going to be bringing your knees up towards your shoulder trying to keep as straight as possible.
Start in a plank position with arms and legs long. Beginning in a solid plank is the key to proper form and good results in the Mountain Climber. At its heart, the Mountain Climber is a form of plank. Keep your abs pulled in and your body straight. Squeeze your glutes and pull your shoulders away from your ears and bring your knee one at time up towards your chest.
Give yourself 30 seconds rest and then repeat circuit #2.
There you have it there’s another one of my home full body workouts. I will be going live tonight on my insta @badgyallolo and will be doing this very work out, so get your leggings on ladies and let’s get this.
