#WorkoutWednesday: Legs and Cardio


Hi everybody! Happy #WorkoutWednesday! 🙂 I am heading to the beach with my family exactly one month from today and I have been working very hard to get my rear in gear for summer in general but especially vacation. This week’s workout is from the Bikini Body Guide by Kayla Itsines – her workouts are incredible. I have a bone bruise on my left foot from #3 so I have not been able to run which is nearly the equivalent of not being able to breathe air for me. All I want to do is put on my tennies and go for a run but I gotta follow the Doc’s orders. This is one of my favorites because it is a great for runners like myself.

For a 30-minute workout, complete each circuit for 7 minutes per circuit with 30-90 seconds of rest as you need.

Circuit 1:
15 Jump Squats
15 Squats
24 Walking lunges — 12 per leg
24 Knee Ups — 12 per leg

Circuit 2:
16 X Jumps — 8 per leg
10 Burpees
24 Weighted Step Ups — 12 per leg
15 Medicine Ball Squat & Press

Do not forget to stretch before and after your workouts – it is so important for muscle healing and workout recovery. The 2017 CHAARG Summer Booty Camp starts on Monday and I am so incredibly pumped to share my 6-week journey with all of you on that. I am utilizing this and my Instagram (@dailydoseofshannon) to hold myself accountable the entire 6 weeks. Mark my words. I always had trouble fully committing to everything – workouts, relationships, etc. BUT my New Year’s Resolution was to be more committed to everything I care about. I care about my health, my body, and those around me.
