We all know that working out is important for us, but sometimes it’s just way too hard to know what to do. Here are some easy workouts that are based on a variety of options! I found that I love to have options that fit my mood.
Walking: I try to walk as much as possible. Whether it be getting off and on at a subway station earlier, or actually getting off later and walking home try to get in lots of walking. I’ve lost weight just by increasing my walking!
Running: I’m currently attempting to train for a 5k. This is hard for me because I’m not very good at running but the experience of conquering my fears and pushing through hard workout is amazing. You don’t have to run fast, and you can run anywhere!
Elliptical: Try 30 minutes or do 20 minutes and 10 minutes of strength training! For whatever reason I just really like the idea of an elliptical. I like to turn up the resistance for a great workout.
Spinning: You can spin at a gym or at something like SoulCycle. I haven’t tried a SoulCycle class but I’ve heard it’s amazing! Have you?
Rowing: I love to row when I’ve had a rough day because the continues motion is very simple. I can’t do anything with my phone so it makes me zone out for the time period. It’s a great low intensity workout that is also great for your shoulders and arms.
Machine Training: Ask someone at your gym or google how to use the machine. It’s normally recommended to do 2-3 days of strength training. I always do mine before because I never have energy after I do cardio. It’s also okay to just do strength training.
Sweat With Kayla: So many people recommend this and I think I might try it soon. Have you used it? I would love any suggestions!
Tone It Up: A couple of my sorority sisters love this, and I really like their HIIT workouts! I’m never bored that’s for sure. I would recommend it, the workouts are free.
Buzzfeed: These are amazing workouts, and you should definitely sign up for their newsletter. They go to actual experts but show workouts for normal people. I highly recommend them!
