Happy Wednesday! This week’s workout is actually a new one for me; I did it over the weekend and I loved it. It’s very effective and super easy to do at home. The BeFit Go: 20 Min Total Body Toning Workout video combines cardio, strength training, and body weight exercises for a quick yet complete full-body workout. Plus it’s only 20 minutes AND it managed to make my inner thighs sore, which is quite a feat!
The video calls for weights and a kettlebell, but if you don’t have a kettlebell you can just use one of the dumbbells instead. They give you a couple rests between sets, but I jogged in place during that time to keep my heart rate up instead. This is by no means necessary — do whatever works for you! There are quite a few deep squats (probably why my thighs were so sore), so be sure to use proper form to avoid injury: keep your back straight, butt tucked, abs tight, and make sure your knees don’t go over your toes. I find it’s helpful to do this in front of the mirror a few times to create some muscle memory before you start.
