Marital Bliss Workout

So, yesterday was my 21st wedding anniversary and my husband and I had a comical celebration.  I put my wedding gown on and he threw me in the swimming pool. Well, he took the plunge into the pool with me! How romantic. Click on this link 21st Wedding Anniversary if you would like to see the video. In honor of our 21 years I decided to do my workout completing 21 repetitions of each exercise, and I did it 3 times through. One time for each of our wonderful children that we have together.

Set your timer for Stopwatch. I took a very short break in between each round to towel off and get a drink. You take as long of a break as you feel necessary. It took me 38:12 to complete.

Crazy Cardio H.I.I.T. (Revisited)

I thought this workout was hard the first time I did it. It was just as hard this time around. Then I realized as I was reading the original post, that I did the workout and nothing else before it. Today I did a driveway workout. I was up early and didn’t want to start recording and wake everyone up in the house. So I went out on the driveway and did my 1/4 mile runs with some sandbag training. If you’re interested in that kind of workout, check out my epic sweat post. I go to the track and run 1/4 miles then in between I do strength exercises. It was still dark out this morning so I did it in our neighborhood instead of at the local track.

Here is the link to the Crazy Cardio H.I.I.T. Workout.

Bust Your Butt Workout (Revisited)

I decided to go back and revisit my old posts and include a video of me doing the workout for those who would like to follow along. I will include the exercises with descriptions in my blog so that you don’t have to listen to me explain it on the video. This workout has two parts with two different videos. If you do both videos, it will take you approximately 40 minutes to complete. You could also break the videos up and do one video on one day, and do the other video on a different day. You decide based on your fitness level.

The first workout has 5 parts and each part is a timed segment. This first workout will take you 24 minutes to complete. I will do a complete breakdown below of all the parts and the exercises. Here is the link to the video if you would rather get right to the work.
