Happy Monday! Here is your M.O.N.D.A.Y workout.
Set a timer for 30 seconds on 15 off. Do each move 3x in a row, then move on to next one. No weights, no problem. I used water bottles, a laundry softener bottle and a large laundry soap bottle.
M. mountain climbers
O. overhead tricep extensions
N. negative sit-ups
A. alternate rear leg lifts
Y. “y” push-ups
Here is a quick, effective workout using all compound movements making it a full body workout with limited to no equipment. If you have dumbbells great. If not, water bottles, cans, anything you have handy will work.

I had some requests for a HiiT workout that was easy to do at home. Here you go, no equipment needed, quick, fast and gets that heart rate up.
My dog Finn even crashed the party. Excuse his barking and me being my ackward self but you get a workout and a couple laughs.
Getting back into my work routine, loved all my classes this week. Had a relaxing 4th with family and friends. Now, #moveoftheday is back! Today, Tricep Dip to Crab Touch. Make sure fingers are pointing towards you, bend at the elbows and straighten arms to really target your triceps, then reach opposite hand to heel. Modification, just lift one leg at a time and leave both hand on the floor.
I love Tabata workouts. They are quick, intense and get the job done. This one is only 3 rounds long and 6 moves you can do anywhere. Set your timer for 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off for 4 minutes. 1 minute break then move onto next round. Alternate the 2 moves each round. Want a longer workout? Do 1 move for the 4 min block so the workout is 6 rounds long.
Burpees/Jacks or Star Jumps
Prisoner Lunges/Mountain Climbers
Squat Jumps/Side Lunge with Hops
