As we transition into a new season, it’s time to “fall” back into our routines, whether it be settling into a new school year, going back to work after vacation, or gearing up for the holiday season. While this season is full of exciting transitions and new beginnings, it’s no secret that it can also be hectic and stressful.
I was just talking with Eric about how after eating tons of our Lightened Up BBQ Chicken Dip, pizza, and other things this weekend while hosting company, I feel pretty heavy and just a little blah. Add that onto my travel for New York Fashion Week, Mexico and a girls’ beach trip, and you can see how my eating hasn’t been quite on par with what I normally do.
I wanted to show you guys my go-to workout moves that I do without any equipment to get me back into fighting form. I’ve had a few of you reach out to me recently on Instagram and ask for quick and easy ways I get in workouts after I showed how I did a Youtube workout. My hope is that this will help you get back into the swing of things too!
No Equipment Workout for the Busy Mom:
Butt Kickers: Run down and back while trying to kick your heels up as high as you can to kick yourself in the booty. If you need a lower impact option, you can always do walking lunges.
Tricep Dips: You can do these anywhere! On the ground, using a park bench, a bed frame, couch…you name it!
Calf Raises: These are one of my favorites! I like to do calf raises parallel, turned out, and pigeon toed. I love to use a curb because you can get the full extension up and the full drop down below the curb as well to really tone and define your calf.
Planks: I love to do all versions of the plank I can because it is SO good for your core. Whether you do straight arm planks, forearm planks, or side arm planks they are all great options. A great option would be to do a plank in between each set of butt kickers, tricep dips, calf raises, and push ups.
Pushups: Start out on your toes and do as many as you can. Once you are so fatigued you can no longer keep proper form (even if you just do 1), drop down to your knees. It’s best to do pushups by a mirror in the beginning so you can see and check your form.
Try doing 3 sets of 10 to start and build your way up.
The great thing about this workout is you can knock it out in 15-20 minutes and feel good about getting it done!
