Actually loving your workouts can be difficult. I know so many people who say they hate to workout because it's boring, which is the opposite of the truth. Once you love your workouts, missing a day becomes harder and harder. I think it's super important to find what you love in all aspects of life, but especially when it comes to working out.
Kayla Itsines' BBG Workout Guide is what I love to do. But my other favourite workout is HIIT. Whenever I feel unmotivated, I watch YouTube videos of my fav girls who are bound to get my ass off of the couch. One of my favs is Whitney Simmons, who is #goals with everything in her life. Her positive energy, her amazing body and her videos are so motivating. She uploads a variation of workouts, what I eat in a day videos and whatever else her heart desires. Tbh, I'll watch anything she uploads.
Whitney trains 6 days a week, which is why her results are so amazing. Her workouts consist of HIIT and weight training, so the results from this workout won't be as great as hers but it's definitely a start.
If you're one of those people who says they never have time to workout, you can't use that excuse now. This 12 minute workout is so intense and is made to blast fat. For those who don't know, HIIT stands for high intensity interval training, and it's where you do a move for a set amount of time and then rest for a set amount of time. So it could be 30 seconds on, 30 seconds on, etc. It increases your metabolism, and you actually burn calories for 24 to 36 hours after.
If you're really looking to get a booty like Whitney, here is another workout you can do that will sculpt the behind!
Here are the moves in the exercise:
There are three circuits, and there are two moves in each circuit. How does it work? Do the first cardio exercise for 20 seconds, then the second movement for 20 seconds. Take a 20 second break and then repeat the circuit two month times. Repeat for circuit two and three. This HIIT and abs workout will leave you sweaty and toned!
Exercise 1: Squatted in and out jumps
Exercise 2: Rotating in and out ab tucks
Exercise 1: Skaters
Exercise 2: Plank jacks with a side crunch
Exercise 1: Star jump
Exercise 2: Sit-ups
