I’m glad many of you liked the quick 10 minute interval workout and want to add it to your routine. You can really get your heart rate up in just 10 minutes and kick you butt.
On Sunday when I was at home all day getting things done around the house, instead of doing a long workout in the morning, I decided to do that 10 minute interval workout in the morning, then another 10 minute workout in the afternoon.
It was nice getting an energy boost throughout the day instead of at one time. Just something else to try out.
Last weeks workout mini-challenge was a pretty tough challenge to start out with. Pull ups are definitely something you need to work up towards.
This week’s mini-challenge: squats
For the next 7 days I wanted to choose something that anyone could do. Squats are the perfect lower body exercise. You can keep them pretty basic and use no weights as shown below. Or to up the intensity add weights and go as deep as you can comfortably with proper form.
Make sure your knees do not go forward beyond your toes, so you’re really sitting back and down during this exercise. Keep your core stable by contracting your abs.
Once again I’ll be doing the challenge before heading into the bathroom. I’ve decided to do 10 reps each time I go in. I also put my 10 lb kettlebell next to the door so that I can add weights if I choose to.
Want to join in on the mini-challenge? I hope so! Share your goal for this weeks challenge in the comments. I’m cheering for you!
