{five favorites} Vol.15: Five New Workout Videos


Welcome to the Five Favorites linkup!
A reminder about a new twist I'm adding to the linkup this year: At the end of each month, I'll be giving away a prize pack to one #5Faves participant!  Here's how it works: every time you link up a blog post, it counts as one entry.  So if you link up a post every week, you'd get four entries.  I'll keep track throughout the month and then randomly pick a winner on April 1.  

First, let's congratulate Jen for winning February's #5Faves Prize Pack!  
The winning post: Books on Marriage (5Faves)

On to this week's favorites:

I've been in a bit of a fitness slump the past few months.  But like I mentioned before, I realized that in order to regain that excitement for working out, I just needed to change things up a bit!  DUH.  So I went on a big search for new workouts and the Internet didn't disappoint!  Here are five of my latest finds:

1 // Cardio Kickboxing with Chris Freytag
This one is my favorite, hands down.  It's 40 minutes, which can be a tricky amount of time for TJ (his patience threshold seems to top out at around 30), so I usually keep this workout for times when Mark is home.  It's fun, empowering and the time goes by quickly.  Love it.

2 // 10 Minute Tabata for Moms
Have you ever tried a Tabata workout?  At just ten minutes, I stupidly thought this would be an easy day - NOT the case!  This video is 20 exercises, done for 20 seconds each with a 10 second "break" in between.  That "break" is more like catch your breath for 5 seconds before moving on!  It's challenging, but doable and boom!  Done in 10 minutes.  

3 // Burn to the Beat with Keaira LaShae
So if you know me in real life, you're already laughing.  Let's just say, Mama doesn't have a lot of rhythm!  But for the sake of really (literally?) shaking things up, I tried out a couple of the Burn to the Beat workouts: Hip Hop and Reggaeton Dance.  I closed the blinds to spare the neighbors, but they were actually really fun, even if I could barely keep up!

4 // Fitness Blender
Fitness Blender is an awesome site and they have videos for everything.  I tried the Fat Burning Tank Top Arms workout, which combined cardio intervals with upper body weight training.  Straight forward and well done, I really enjoyed it.  

5 // Dollar Workout Club
I follow Natalie Hodson on Facebook and love her honest approach to your post-baby body.  She is also a part of the Dollar Workout Club, have you heard of it?  After watching one of their videos on their Facebook page, I loved it so much that I joined on Sunday!  The price is only $1 a week and you receive five workouts, five recipes and five small motivational videos.  Such a great deal!  I love that they show beginner, intermediate and advanced levels and that the workouts are quick but effective.  I worked my chest and back yesterday with their 17 minute video and I am more sore today than I have been in ages!  Can't wait to regularly add their videos to the mix.
