Last week on the blog I shared about our new Move tab on the website which includes two At-home Workout videos. One of the main reasons people say they aren’t physically active is because of a lack of time. Our new videos are less than 20 minutes long and can be done in the comfort of your home. I am your workout leader and my friends Shannon, Katy and Justine join in along the way. I promise you will have some fun as you get moving along with us.
The first video is a Cardio Interval workout that helps you meet the recommended 150 minutes of aerobic physical activity per week. The workout is 14 minutes long and is a tabata style workout. That means you do 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest. There are five different moves and each move is repeated four times. Lower impact versions of each exercise are also shown in the videos so you can modify the workout to meet your needs.
The second video is a Beginner Strength Training video that takes you through a series of exercises to work each muscle group. All you need is a pair of dumbbells. If you don’t have dumbbells you can also use water bottles or cans of food. Each exercise is done 12 times and modifications for each exercise are also shown.
If you are looking to be more active or find new exercises to try, these videos are for you! You can also find the videos on our Spend Smart. Eat Smart. app.
