There are a couple of exciting things coming up for Balance Sweat & Cheers! WORKOUT WEEK starts next week Monday. There will be a new workout released each day for an entire week. There will also be a giveaway and a 3-week guide released. STAY TUNED FOR MORE UPDATES… COMING SOON!
As a new semester of school begins for me, there are a couple of things I like to keep in mind.
- Do not stress about little things that you can’t do anything about. Seems simple, but I often find myself stressed about things that are out of my control.
- Work your hardest and you will see results. Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard, remember that.
- Set aside time for yourself despite how much work you may have. Self-care is one of the most important things for your health and it is essential that you incorporate it into your routine EVERYDAY.
- Have fun. You cannot plan every minute of your life and you are setting yourself up for increased stress if you try to control every second. I find myself working on this aspect the most. It is good to plan out your day but allow for some time throughout your day to do whatever you may feel like that day.
I feel like I can get caught up in my to-do list each day and forget to relax and enjoy each day. Yes, it is important to stay motivated and on top of your tasks, but it is just as important to take time each day to slow down and realize where you are now and where you want to be in the future. Slow things down and enjoy the life you live. It is important for your physical and mental health.
Balance Sweat & Cheers: Tabata Workout
This workout is 20 minutes long.
I usually add a cardio portion onto strength workouts. If you are looking to supplement this workout with cardio, the FUN Endurance Workout, Cardio & Strength Circuit Workout, and SWEAT SOIREE are all great options. Or you could do 20 minutes cardio of choice (i.e. treadmill, StairMaster, Elliptical, Biker, Strider, etc.) before or after this workout.
There are four circuits in this workout. Repeat circuit one for five minutes and move onto the next circuit. Perform each exercise for 20 seconds, followed by 10 seconds of rest. Rest for one minute between circuits.
