Back to School Workout

Even though I'm on the dance team at my school it's not always a total workout. We usually do some form of cardio at the beginning and some toning at the end, but sometimes we are just learning dances which is a lot of standing around. I'm not complaining, but sometimes I feel like I need another something to get my workout in. This workout is perfect for all of y'all that are feeling like me or that don't do a sport/activity in the fall. This workout isn't super time consuming which is fab because we all don't have time during the school year! 

Stretch // You should always start your workout with a good stretch to properly warm up. I honestly love to stretch! I may be biased because I am pretty flexible, but if you continually stretch you will become a lot more flexible and it will help you with whatever workout you are doing!

Run or Cardio // Personally I'm not a very good runner, but I've been really trying to improve my endurance and run more often. I recommend running slow and going farther because it will help you to build up your endurance. If I don't run super fast then I can run about 2 miles without stopping, but I'm working on building this up. If you're not a fan of running try some other form of cardio like biking, dance/zumba or using an elliptical. 

Tone // This is a great way to sculpt the fit body that you're looking to gain! Pushups & crunches are a great way to tone. There are tons of different options though such as lunges, v-dips, squats, jumping jacks, planks, etc. If you're looking for inspiration check out my fitness Pinterest board

Eating healthy is also a super important element of getting fit so be sure you're fueling your body with healthy foods and drinking lots of water!

Also a quick shoutout to my sister and one of my best friends on their birthday! Happy Birthday Kristen and Ava! Love you both!

  1. Great tips! I've been trying to put in some more workouts too-stretching is always important before starting!
