Motivation Monday

Repeat after me…

This is my Monday mantra. When it comes to workouts, I love the quickie. I can’t stand doing hours of cardio, dragging my butt to the gym for a lengthy strength workout. While that definitely works for some people (if that’s you, get it girl!!), it doesn’t for me, ESPECIALLY not to start the week. I’m a high intensity kinda girl. I love short, quick bursts of all out effort, followed by a short rest periods, because they allow me to send my cardio through the roof while getting toned. The best part? High intensity training works you hard and fast so you don’t have to spend a whole hour on a workout. I usually take 15-20 minutes in the morning to crank it out, then get on with my day.

I’m no personal trainer, so take everything I say with a grain of salt, but here are a few of my favorite toning moves:

Burpees. {{I use the term “favorite” loosely here. I hate these. But I love the results.}}

Push-up Jacks. {{Try on an incline if you are like me and do push ups on your knees}}

Kickboxing. {{I used to train with a semi-pro boxer, and nothing in the world gets my endorphins flowing more than beating the crap out of stuff. Never tried it? Check out cardio kickboxing, it’s a great way to get a feel for boxing and classes are offered just about everywhere.  Or do like Jamie and I used to and gather a couple gals on the weekend and go in on a mini group session}}

Happy Monday!
