Kick-Butt Workouts

Leave a comment

Running is my favorite way to workout, but on days when I can’t get out to run or on x-training days I want workouts that challenge me.  I call them Kick-Butt workouts.

I recently purchased a DVD workout, something I haven’t done in years.  I choose Jillian Michaels Extreme Shed & Shred DVD $9.69 at Target.

This is a total body workout with a mix of kickboxing,Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, yoga and weight training. It has two 45-minute workouts with modifications for beginners and seasoned athletes looking for a challenge. It also includes an online meal plan if you need guidance.  On my Kick-Butt meter of a scale from 1 to 5, 5 being the top, this workout rates a 4.

But my absolute number one recommendation for a Kick-Butt workout is NTC (Nike Training Club).  It’s an app for your phone or tablet that’s available for iphone and Android users, and it is FREE, FREE, FREE!!!

As you complete workouts you will be rewarded with additional bonus workouts, some from professional athletes.

I rate NTC a 5 on the Kick-Butt meter.

Prepare to sweat when you do these workouts.

If you want to be swimsuit ready for the summer, these workouts will get you there!  No Gym Membership Required.

Not all of the workouts use equipment, but when equipment is needed, so far all I have used have been a mat, dumbbells, or medicine ball.

Hi, I'm Celeste 'm a no flesh eating vegetarian who loves to run, cook and eat good wholesome food, living a healthy lifestyle has always been important to me. In 2011 I became a vegetarian because I was experiencing digestive problems it seemed after every meal and I just didn't feel good. After reading Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr I was convinced that eliminating all meat from my diet and adding more real foods was worth a try. Kris's book taught me so much about the power of whole fresh fruits and veggies, and their impact on our bodies. After a few months I started to feel the difference and I have never turned back. My hope is to share something that helps you on your journey to being Whole Body Healthy! Follow me on Facebook,Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
