This workout came out of nowhere!
I sometimes use my water bottle to keep my hips up in a plank or between reverse crunches to mix it up a bit. As I was doing that in a workout the other day I got to thinking, what else could I do with this bad boy? And no… this post is not sponsored by Essentia 😀
This workout is more of a quick circuit, full body workout. I used this the other morning to get my body going before I taught later that day. When I worked out later that afternoon, I didn’t feel exhausted but felt that my muscles had definitely been worked. So if you are someone that just wants to take 10 – 15 minutes in the morning to get going, then this is a great circuit for you! Works the core and is a new way to work the legs too!
I did 15 reps each move (each side), 3 times around. I think this could also be a great workout to do Tabata style! 20 seconds of quick spurts, break for 10 seconds, then go right back into the next move for the following 20 seconds, and so on. If you do, I would maybe do 4 sets instead of 3! But this is a great way to improve your endurance and keep your heart rate up, increase the intensity of every move.
Oh, and sorry for my camera! It decided to not focus for 2-3 moves at the end. So, no, your eyesight isn’t going! It’s just technology.
I hope you enjoyed this workout as much as I did! I always love coming up with new ways to workout using everyday items, making it easy to workout anywhere at any time! No excuses! Sorry 🙂
Keep an eye out for more workouts like this in the future! More fun to come!
