Triceps and Legs

I am usually a proponent of working the same muscle groups together on the same day (chest and triceps), but I saw the squat machine open at the gym and it was just calling my name out! So I decided to do a little tricep/leg mix and I didn’t mind the burn in both target areas.

Plus some cardio – because who doesn’t love a good heart racing, blood pumping burn!

Bootcamp Video

Today I wasn’t in the mood to walk to the gym so I decided to workout in my apartment. In all honesty it got my heart rate up higher than normal. Sometimes I think changing up your workout from the norm can prove to be successful. I took to YouTube to find a cardio video and decided on Tae Bo Billy’s Bootcamp Cardio Inferno. By no means was this an easy workout and by the end I was feeling sweaty and great. Give it a try, go at your own pace and remember, “If you want to change your body, you first have to change your mind.”

Today I went to this amazing spin class! The teacher played boy band songs such as The Jonas Brothers and Backstreet Boys. Have you ever tried a spin class? If so, let me know what you thought about it! In my opinion, spinning is a great cardio activity that you get out of it what you put in to it.

I also did this 8 minute abs video:
