If it feels like the months are flying past us at an incredible rate, it’s because they are. It’s May already. MAY! And, honestly, I couldn’t be more excited. 🙂
April was one of the best months ever, with the whole month of Viewer’s Choice workouts, so you can imagine that it was pretty much a no-brainer to keep on going with that theme. So… MAY I Have More was hatched into being, with my own personal top five choices making it to the small screen this month. You can watch the announcement of this month’s theme – plus a little teaser about next month! – HERE.
We’re kicking things off with a super special (and particularly awesome, if I do say so myself) LOW IMPACT MetCon, suggested by my girl Antoinette. Interestingly, this workout didn’t get voted on, because it wasn’t part of last month’s April LOVE vote. Instead, I heard from Antoinette directly, right after she had made a very generous monthly pledge to the Pahla B Fitness PATREON (learn all about Patreon and how it helps me make free workouts for YOU by clicking here). While she was asking about redeeming her awards, she wanted to know if I could make a particular workout. And, yes. Yes, I can.
It’s not listed as one of the regular Patreon awards, but you know what? I’m always happy to make great workouts, and even happier when I know it’s a great workout for YOU! 🙂
There’s NO JUMPING required for this terrific full body metabolic conditioning (MetCon) workout, which makes it friendly for your knees and your downstairs neighbors.
