If you’re just now joining, here is a whole post about our first Whole30 back in 2016 and our results from it. I love to do it every January just to reset a bit from the holiday season and it’s so much better to do it with friends! Check out my other posts from this month’s January Whole30:
Week 1: Whole 30 Meal Plan
Week 2: Big Batch Breakfasts
Week 3: Whole30 with Kids
This week, I’m breaking away from the food portion to focus more on fitness! During a recent trip to Winston-Salem, Heather and I had the chance to workout together and did an upper body and cardio workout. (Thanks to the Kimpton Cardinal Hotel for the awesome gym to workout in!) The nice thing about this one, is that you can do it at home with minimal equipment! I suggest starting with 5lb dumbbells and working up to 10, if you’d like. Free weights and a treadmill are my most used at home items and at the end of this post, I will link my home gym favorites!
Upper Body and Cardio Workout
Complete 8-12 reps of each move, then repeat 3-4 times. Follow up the circuit with a 2 mile run!
- Overhead press
- Bent Over Reverse Fly
- Bicep Curl (If you can’t laugh at yourself during a workout, you’re not doing it right!)
- Tricep Overhead Extension
- Single Arm Row
- Concentration Curl
- Tricep Extension
- Front Raise
- Side Raise
- Plank Row – One of my favorite moves, as it crushes your entire core as well as your arms!
Run for 2 miles at your pace. If you’re not ready for running yet, crank the treadmill incline up and walk as fast as you can. It will work that booty and get your heart racing!
Here are some things that we have in our at home gym. I’ve had lots of requests to share how we transformed our garage into our dual purpose workout space, so I will do that very soon!
