We’ve made it to Wednesday; half-way to the weekend! I feel like I’ve had a lot on my plate this week & I’m just trying to keep my head above water. While I do have parent-teacher conferences tomorrow night, Friday is a half-day & we have off on Monday, so I’m hoping the extended weekend will give me a chance to catch up on life!
If you’ve ever checked out my Workout Log, you’ve probably noticed that my workouts are usually always completed at the gym. I frequent both BodyPump & spin classes, & when I’m not attending a class, I can usually be found on the elliptical.
I did complete an at-home strength workout a few weeks back, but for the most part, I don’t feel like I get that great of a workout at home. Plus, I don’t have any “real” workout equipment – just a set of hand weights.
However, as I mentioned at the start of this post, I’ve been swamped lately. Tonight, I just knew that spin wasn’t happening, & that even though I fully intended to do something at home, it had to be quick.
I perused a few websites & contemplated digging out an old workout video from our storage closet (I quickly passed on this idea!). I settled on doing some quick ab work (sit-ups + a plank) & completed this 10-minute cardio kickboxing workout from Spark People.
I definitely didn’t feel like I got as good of a workout as I would have at spin class, but I have to accept that sometimes the gym just isn’t feasible or logical when my to-do list is out of control.
So, seeing as I want to incorporate more at-home workouts into my fitness routine, tonight’s question is…
What are your favorite at-home workouts? Share your links, please!
Which do you prefer and/or which do you do more often – workout at home or the gym?
