My Favorite At-home Workout {Full Body}

Hey yall!

Since the start of 2018, I have been extremely motivated to workout and take care of my body, so I wanted to write a blog post about my favorite workout to do when I can’t get to the gym. It only takes about 10-15 minutes if you do it on its own, or you can turn it into a circuit and do this entire workout a few times in a row for a real burn.

Growing up as a dancer, I never really had to worry about getting my exercise in. I would work out at home when I wasn’t at the studio, but it was never a worry as to whether or not I was active that day. After graduating high school and starting college, I realized that I was spending more time at a desk and less time at the barre. Because of this, I’ve discovered a new love for the gym, and I’m so happy to now incorporate weight training as well as cardio into my gym routine!

I know some people would much rather workout from the comfort of their own home (this workout is for you!), but I find something so motivating about being at the gym! It’s become such a stress relief for me. Although I love the gym, sometimes it just doesn’t happen in a day. Studying, spending time with my family, and getting everything prepped for the week ahead are all things that can make it hard to drive the loooooooong 15 minutes to the gym for a workout. I mean, I can do this entire workout in the time that it takes for me to even get to the gym!

Working out can definitely be difficult. Starting to get into a routine with working out is even more so. Just enjoy the process and take the first step. Don’t walk into the gym your first day and expect to walk out with a six-pack. Just walk into the gym the first day. Do a few crunches or push-ups when you get up in the morning.  The best thing about working out is that it is about iterative and gradual steps of improvement. Just take the first one!

Much love,

Chloe

My 10 Minute Everyday Fitness Routine

Hey y’all!  

I’ve gotten a lot of questions about my daily workout routine and how I stay in shape as a college student who has to study, work, and who hardly has time for anything else. So, today I’ll be sharing my 10-minute workout that I (try to) do every day!  This workout is quick but works your legs, arms, and abs. Whether it works for you to do this every day, once a week, or three times a week, it’ll leave you sweating and work most of your muscles. You can do this set once as a quick workout, or do it as a circuit and repeat as many times as you want for a serious burn. 

Let’s go!

My 10 Minute Everyday Workout

  • Warm up with 1 minute jumping jacks 
  • Continue with 2 minute run in place
  • 1-minute of ab crunches
  • 1-minute of mountain climbers
  • 1-minute break… breathe, breathe, breathe!
  • 30 seconds of push-ups
  • 1-minute 30 seconds of squats
  • 1-minute plank
  • 1-minute squat jumps

To cool down, I like to do 5 minutes of yoga, which calms everything, slows my breath and heart rate, and stretches everything out. There are lots of yoga sequences on Pinterest that I really enjoy, find my favorite here! I like to stick to the same one every time, so find one you like and stick to it! Or switch it up… You do you. I really hope you enjoy my fitness routine, go forth and do your squats 🙂

Much love,

Chloe♥
