I started the Kayla Itsines BBG 12-week challenge... but those workouts are so challenging to do at home with no real gym equipment. Some of the weeks require multiple benches and multiple sets of weights... and I have two hand weights that I got at Walmart and a chair from my dining room table. SO I've had to improvise!
I still do the scheduled out days from BBG (Mondays - Legs, Tuesday - low impact cardio, Wednesday - Arms/Abs, Thursday - high impact cardio, and Friday - full body), but instead of the four 7 minute circuits I've been following along with videos on Youtube. Today I've rounded up my favorites to share with y'all!
Victoria's Secret Model Workout (10 minutes) // I'll pretty much do any workout with "Victoria's Secret Model" in the title. This one is solely focused on legs, is low impact, and (hello!!!) is only 10 minutes long.
Lazy Girl Booty Workout (15 minutes) // I did this workout on Monday and really felt the burn!! This trainer is awesome too, which is always a bonus in online videos!
Legs and Arms with Sadie Lincoln (10 minutes) // Sadie Lincoln founded barre3, which is one of my allll time favorite exercises. Barre3 is all about small, isolated but repetitive movements that really makes you shake all over... but it works! This video is harder than it looks, I promise!
Total Arm Workout (10 minutes) // Arms are easily my least favorite thing to workout, but they're also where I want to see change! This is a short workout with a great and energetic trainer, so the 10 minutes go by pretty quickly.
Lazy Girl's Arm Workout (5 minutes) // I tried this the other day and I totally felt the burn without even leaving my seat! Bonus points for anything I can do in my PJs, extra bonus points for only being 5 minutes long!!
Butt and Abs Pilates Workout (30 minutes) // This one is a little longer, and has a few wide-range motions (like high kicks) so might not work in every space, but I'm willing to workout longer for a flat stomach and lifted butt!
Victoria's Secret Abs (10 minutes) // I haven't tried this video yet, but like I said... anything with Victoria's Secret in the title and I'm game. Plus, everyone in the comments LOVE this trainer and some even say that by doing this every day they've lost 10 pounds!!! I'm not sure if we should believe that, but hey... that's motivating for sure!
Barre Abs (10 minutes) // SURPRISE it's the same guy trainer that I love so much! Barre abs BURN! I did this video yesterday and couldn't even make it all 10 minutes without having to stop!
Total Body Tone Up (15 minutes) // This is a full video that really burns, but I love the positivity. I felt this in my abs, legs, arms... all over! Truly full body and super short.
30 Day Shred Level 1 (28 minutes) // I love Jillian Michaels' workouts. She has a killer body and is obviously great at what she does! My mom and I actually do this on a DVD sometimes and it is SO hard but successfully completing it feels AMAZING! This is the first level, but the second and third are also available on Youtube!
Victoria's Secret Model Workout (20 minutes) // One last VS workout to round out the post! The main trainer in this video trains Alessandra Ambrosio, who looks AMAZING after two kids (!!!), so a workout that is good enough for her is definitely good enough for me!
So there you go! These are some of my favorite videos that allow me to feel like I'm in the middle of a group exercise class from the comfort of my living room floor! The next thing I have to figure out is how to get in some high-intensity cardio without leaving too! I might never step foot inside a gym again ;)
If you try (or have tried, or want to try!) any of these videos, or have favorites of your own that I should try out, please let me know!
