Happy, happy December, Killer Bs! Are you ready for a crazy busy month? Good. So are your workouts! 🙂
Here’s the thing about challenging yourself and being “in training” for life: sometimes you need to make accommodations for your actual life and don’t worry so much about your workouts. Which is not to say you should let them slide, but more that it is 100% okay to do short, tough workouts and call it done in 20 minutes or less.
I know there’s plenty of research that says you should get 30 minutes of activity a day, but you know what? That research is talking about sedentary people going for an easy walk, and it doesn’t apply to you. Also? Those researchers have never done a Pahla B workout. LOL.
Click on the image below to open and save the PDF file on your device. The PDF has clickable links that take you directly to the workout or playlist for each day. Monday’s and Tuesday’s workouts are all-new so they’ll be available at 2:30 am Cali time on their respective days.
On MONDAY, we’re starting the week with a fast-paced, all standing UPPER BODY TABATA, shaping and sculpting some fabulous arms and shoulders with light dumbbells. This cardio toning workout is a workout for your brain as well as your body as we coordinate lower body cardio with upper body strength.
TUESDAY’s 20-minute WALK + RUN workout includes some challenging but doable intervals as well as a conversation about how to make all your fitness wishes come true. I suspect that this is “part one” of a multi-part conversation about this topic, because I had a LOT to say, but wanted to keep the workout brief.
WEDNESDAY has us lifting HEAVY with an advanced KETTLEBELL routine (paired in the playlist with a quick warm up), and wearing the same shirt as Tuesday in videos recorded well over a year apart. I thought about switching the days around to keep the wardrobe repetition to a minimum, but…
THURSDAY’s quick full body, bodyweight-only HIIT workout has me wearing Monday’s pants! 😂 (Quick story about how I choose the Mini Challenge workouts – I flip through my real-life paper notebook of workouts and decide which exercises will complement each other to get a well-rounded week, so there’s no visual on the outfits until I make the graphics. Imagine my surprise when this week looked like I filmed them all together! I know it’s not a big deal at all, but I cracked myself up when I was arranging the thumbnails.)
On FRIDAY, we’re finishing the week with a finisher of a workout: a TEN MINUTE GLUTE BRIDGE challenge that includes some “bonus” upper body strength training. This one’ll get your biscuits burning for sure!
