It’s Time..Workout Challenge

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
I believe it’s important to take care of the body God has given you. With that said, it’s been over a year and half since I worked out! All four of my pregnancies were “High Risk,” so I couldn’t workout when I was pregnant. I was not able to workout once I had my little ones because my milk supply would decrease. Well, my little boy is now 12 months and we started him on milk last week…he’s not a big fan, but is starting to accept it. This means that Mama gets to start working out again!
Being a Personal Trainer for over 10 years, I know a little bit about working out. First, it’s important to start out slowly, which means, this week’s challenge will consist of two days of working out for 15 to 20 minutes.

Today’s workout:

Legs (using just body weight):

-Squats 3 x 15 (make sure your knees don’t go over your toes)

-Reverse Lunges 2 x 10

-Side Lunges 2 x 10

-Calf Raises 2 x 15

-Bridge 2 x 15 (hold for 2 seconds before lowering your hips back down)

Basic Tips: 

*Make sure you are drinking water.

*Don’t forget to breath. It seems easy enough but people tend to hold their breath while working out.

*Stretch!

Feel free to join me in this workout challenge! Like I use to tell my female clients, “Before you can take care of your family you must take care of yourself!”

  1. I am going to increase with you. Don’t forget to post the updated workout. (Or I will be so proud of myself for doing the baby workout even though I haven’t had a baby in 5 years!)

  2. I agree – I feel so much better about myself and have so much more energy when I make time to work out. I aim to do 30 minute workouts often – otherwise if they’re longer, I find excuses not to do it. Good for you!
