21-Day Fitness Challenge: Day 5

21-Day Fitness Challenge: Day 5

I honestly don't know the last time I worked out in the morning ... it's been awhile. My friend has asked me to go with her a couple times, but it never worked out. Today, though, we did it! I'm so glad I got my butt out of bed just to try it. I've felt so refreshed all morning!

Not a morning person? I'm not really either. But if you need motivation to workout in the morning, find a workout buddy! It's really all about accountability.

Today, we did an all-body workout. I called it Totally Tabata, because it was a timed circuit that I put together  my own little riff off of a tabata workout. Which, in case you're wondering, is normally on for 20 seconds (with maximum effort) off for 10 seconds, until you complete eight rounds, totally four minutes.

So, here's what we did:

Do as many rounds as you can of each workout  at your own pace  for three minutes. Then rest one minute before moving onto the next set of three. We completed this entire circuit twice.

First set:
- Plie dumbbell squat: 10 reps
- Burpees: 10 reps
- Plank mountain climbers: 10 reps each leg, 20 total

Second set:
- Pushups: 10 reps
- Kettlebell one-arm squat clean at 12 lbs: 5 reps each side, 10 total
- Reverse lunge: 10 reps each leg, 20 total

Third set:
- Plank shoulder taps: 10 reps each arm, 20 total
- Side to side hip dip planks: 10 reps
- Side lunges: 10 reps each leg, 20 total

Fourth set:
- Twisting side plank with 5 lb dumbbell: 5 reps each side, 10 total
- Bicycle crunches: 20 reps
- Overhead tricep extensions with 12 lb dumbbell: 10 reps

Like last time — and even though some of these are self-explanatory — I linked to examples if you're not sure what something is.
