Whitney Simmons’ YouTube channel got me into strength training. Before I discovered her channel, it hadn’t even crossed my mind that women could (and should) weightlift. It’s not something I had ever been told. She really got me wanting to put on muscle and it really jump started my fitness journey. Needless to say, I am a fan. So when I heard she was coming out with her own fitness program I was very excited.
It can be really hard to be motivated to exercise. As much as I love to workout, sometimes I feel like I am just in a funk and don’t want to do it. So how do we fix this?
It’s a crazy time right now. With social distancing and more and more gyms closing, here are my favorite YouTube channels for home workouts (no equipment required!).
Today I thought I would review the Sweat App! I’ve used Kayla Itsines’s Sweat App for about 6 months now and completed two of her workout programs on the app: BBG and Fierce. At this point I’ve used it long enough that I feel like I know the app pretty well by now and I have some thoughts.
Let me start by saying that I love caffeine. I I honestly can’t function as a human without my cup of coffee in the morning and my subsequent cups of tea throughout the day. You know how people can get hangry without food? Well, that’s how I feel without caffeine.
First of all: What is LISS? It stands for Low Intensity Steady State and is a type of cardio. It is generally not as high impact as HIIT, or High Intensity Interval Training. Both have their benefits. When doing LISS the goal is to be in the “fat burning zone”, or 60% of your max heart rate, for 30 minutes or more.
I can’t believe it’s already more than halfway through February. This year is flying. Today I thought I would set out my fitness goals for the year.
Raise your hand if nothing sounds better than a nice cup of coffee (or tea!) and a book. I love curling up with a good book and getting lost in its world. Completely detaching from life and just immersing myself in something else for a while.
