So my current workout routine is kind of all over the place lately but slowly getting back into somewhat of a routine. The kids are still only in school a couple hours a day (but fingers crossed hopefully back full time soon!) so my home gym is still coming in super handy and transitioning a small section of my garage in a workout space last year was one of the best things I did. You can see all those details HERE!
I aim for 2-3 days of cardio a week and add some strength training on most of those days, too. Honestly if I get a workout in 4x a week these days, it’s a damn good week lol. Keep reading for what I’m up to these days!
By the way, I don’t usually do this but this info is actually straight from my biweekly HONEYBEE HIGHLIGHTS NEWSLETTER. It’s all exclusive content like this that usually isn’t on the blog but since this is such a popular topic, I wanted to put it up here as well and let you girls who aren’t signed up know that there’s more content like this in my newsletter! You can sign up HERE (I have a couple other newsletters too that you might like!).
OK let’s get into the schedule…
-1-2x a week: I use my DREADmill (what I like to call it because most days it feels dreadful 😉 but always so glad when I’m done). I alternate speeds and incline to keep my body guessing. (speed usually 6.5-9.5) and aim for no less than 35 minutes each time.
-1x a week: On days I can’t bring myself to hop on the dread mill, I do floor workouts using my risers and moves that really get my heart rate up without having to get on a machine (squat jumps, mountain climbers, burpees etc). My crossrope jump rope is also great for switching things up 1x a week and getting my heart rate up (love that they have an app where I can sneak in a quick class that incorporates lunges, squats etc). I have the ‘get lean set’ and you may still be able to use my discount code if you’re interested: ANDEEL20.
-1x a week: You girls know I love my band workouts that I shared here!
-2-3x a month: On other days I try to get outdoors and run by the beach or take it to the stairs.
-2-4x a month: I finallllly just found a local spot that has created an outdoor gym with HIIT classes (which are my fav) and I can’t tell you how good it felt to be back in a gym-like-setting with some energy!
Here and there: Lastly, without sounding like an old lady, I started playing pickleball and not going to lie it’s really fun! Another good way to get outdoors comfortably with friends and get some exercise.
