New Year’s Workout – 2018

Happy 2018, my lovely friends! I hope you had a fantastic holiday weekend! Juno and I hung out on Saturday, and I spent New Year’s Eve out with my best friend (shenanigans on Instagram). But now that we are officially into 2018 and ready to take on the new year, I figured it was only fitting to share a new year’s workout!

So many of us want to get back on track after the holidays and one of the best ways to do that is by simply incorporating, short, sweet metabolic workouts (like this one). In preparation for my winter #StressFreeStrength challenge (starting Saturday January 20!), I’m sharing a fun, effective workout, playing off our new year – 2018.

Your New Year’s Workout

Today’s workout is using a set of moderate dumbbells to work your entire body. If you don’t have any equipment, grab a backpack or work bag and fill it with books. You can use this as a makeshift sandbag.

For this workout, we’ll be incorporating Metabolic Effect’s Rest Based Training (RBT) principle (see more here). With RBT, we work as hard as we possibly can for the prescribed interval, resting only as needed.

This workout’s structure is a little different than my other HIIT workouts, because we are playing on the new year – 2018 (this format was inspired by my Halloween workout). Instead of working on an interval timer, we are performing two rounds of five exercises.

Round 1: 20 reps

Round 2: 18 reps

See what I did there!

HNY! In honor of 2018, we've got a brand new, real time full body workout to get us off to the right start. Check it out! New Year's Workout - New Year's Gym Workout - New Year's Exercise Workout

Keep in mind that both rounds are going to be TOUGH – with the rep range helping you build endurance. Instead of pacing yourself, break the round into sets so you can go as hard as possible. If you’re looking for guidance of how hard to push and for form cues, join me! We can work out together below.

If you’re loving this workout and want more short, effective home workouts, #StressFreeStrength is for you!

And honestly, that’s why I felt obligated to create #StressFreeStrength, a 10-day workout challenge to help you get stronger, leaner, and more consistent without any stress, shame, or obsession over the process.

Here’s the thing. So many women STILL believe that more is always better, so they stress about getting in 60 minute gym workouts. If they’re not able to fit in those long ass workouts, they’re beating themselves up, anxious, and forcing themselves eat less to make up for it.

This is an awful cycle that’s keeping us from reaching our goals. What most of us miss is that trying to complete long workouts is actually making us fatter.

Why? We are: 

-Less consistent

-More stressed because fitting in long workouts is tough

-Cheating ourselves on intensity.

#StressFreeStrength is unique, because I’m gonna show you exactly how to structure your workouts in a way that keeps you from getting stressed out. The goal is to crush 8 workouts (all 30 minutes or less and doable at home) over 10 days, and every lady who completes all 8 will be put in the running to win free coaching with me.

We get started on Saturday January 20 (yep Saturday!) so sign up ASAP below.
