The Fast 5 Layered Cake Workout

layered cake wrkout

Hi all!! I am so excited to do this workout tonight! I wanted to share it with you now! It is called the Fast 5 Layered Cake Workout but guess what… it is really 10 moves-5 of them are layered in between the other 5 moves!! Sneaky, I know!

This is how you will perform this workout:

You will do 3 sets of each of the weighted exercises and the hidden 5 are non-weighted that you will do as active rest in between them each set!

Warm up first! I like to do the Dancing Dog as a warm up-this is when you constantly switch from the down dog to up dog positions for 1 min. It will activate your entire body!!

Rest for 1 min in between each # exercise and 30 sec after each layer 🙂

#1. KB Swings x20/ 30 sec high knees layered in between set 1 and 2

#2. DB Shoulder Flyes x12/ 30 sec jumping jacks layered in between sets 1 and 2

#3. Laying down KB in/outs x20/ 30 sec Bridge hold layered in between sets 1 and 2

#4. KB Deadlifts x20/ 30 sec fast jog in place layered in between sets 1 and 2

#5. Push ups x15/ 30 sec Child’s pose layered in between sets 1 and 2

If you are outside or at a gym run 1 mile afterwards just to put some icing on the cake!! Cool down and stretch properly too! This workout should take about 30 to 45 min depending on your fit level.

Get to it!!! Have fun!! Enjoy your cake!! A

Kettlebell Total Body Fire Session

kb total body fire sessionYou know those workouts that leave you struggling to walk the next 2 days?? This is one of those! I did this Monday night with my class and man oh man are we all hurting still today!!

This hits your whole body and will leave you feeling like you really laid down some work-trust me!

This is about a 45 min workout but of course can be modified if you are a beginner and need to do less rounds or less reps!

Be sure to stretch and eat properly before and after and keep hydrated!!

Use the heavier KB when possible but downgrade to the lighter when you need to. I used a 20 lb and a 10 lb. If you have dumbbells at home you can certainly substitute with those!

Go get em tiger! Happy sweating!!

Imagine, Believe & Achieve 4 Week Cardio Challenge

achieveI don’t know about you but I seem to do cardio in spurts! I like it and I am in the groove and feeling it then I hate it, shut down and completely stop doing it for weeks or months at a time! After completing my first half marathon 2 weeks ago my cardio has been non-existent and I don’t want that 2 weeks to turn into 2 months.  So starting tomorrow I will begin a different kind of cardio journey that does not include a race at the end. I will do 40 min of cardio 4 days a week for the next 4 weeks (on top of my weight training). I will use this guide below!
