My Current Workout Routine

I have had a lot of you guys request that I post my current workout routine! So, I will do just that.

Unfortunately, I do not work out as often as I would like to. While I was pregnant, I was hitting the gym 5-6 times per week. Since becoming a mother, its moreso 2-3 times a week in my home gym-if I am lucky!

I try to plan my workouts as my son sleeps, though sometimes this is not always the case. That's when I decided to develop my own mommy & baby workouts, babywearing workouts, and the ever famous stroller workout!

However, when I do get that extra little bit of time to myself, I go HARD!

Here is what I own in my personal home gym:
  • Vicore Core Ab Bench
  • 2 kettlebells (16lb & 26lb)
  • 2 medicine balls (12lb & 16lb)
  • 1 fitness ball
  • 5 resistance bands
  • 4 yoga mats
  • 1 foam roller
  • 1 10lb dumbbell
  • 1 T-Grip Bar
  • Equalizer
  • Multi weight set (goes with the t-grip bar)
  • Treadmill is coming in a few weeks!!!! I am actually getting a Nordic Track incline trainer!
That is about it for now. I am totally hoping to add a rack with weights soon so I can do some free weighted squats.

Here is what I do in my gym, 3 mornings per week before my son wakes up (if I am lucky but I do change things up very often):

Monday: Abs (crunches, situps, russian twists w/medicine ball)
Tuesday: Legs (kettlebell squats, walking lunges, barbell lunges, barbell squats)
Wednesday: Abs (plank, side plank, leg lifts, stability ball curls)
Thursday: Legs (side lunges, butt kicks, high knees, barbell squats, barbell lunges)
Friday: Arms (tricep dips, pushups, plank, dumbbell curls, kettlebell swings, barbell curls, benchpress)
Saturday: Yoga/Meditation/Rest
Sunday: Yoga/Meditation/Rest

My favorite exercises for total body workouts that I like to do before bedtime (since I LOVE high interval intensity training) are:
  • Burpees
  • Mountain Climbers
  • Jump Squats
  • Jumping Jacks
  • Plank Jacks
And this is pretty much it. I believe that diet is 75% of why I look the way I do. I eat clean most of the time-though, yes, I am human and I like a glass of wine or a beer every now and then. I also love BREAD. Ah! It's the devil! So I try to stay away. I have really good willpower that I have developed over the years luckily.

If you tweak your diet, you will be amazed at how much better your body can get.
