My hair is a ratchet mess. So, as a result I am going to ignore my hair and post about my workouts because this hair needs to be shaped and dyed. Lawd have mercy.
Anywhoo, I have changed my workout regimen and I wanted to share. Since this summer I have been working out with a trainer. I started out doing 30 minutes of cardio and weight training about 4-5 times a week, alternating between chest back and shoulders and abs arms and legs. I haven’t seen a difference in my weight but I have seen a difference in my body and I have felt an overall difference in terms of strength. The reason I haven’t seen much of a difference in my weight is because my body was converting fat into muscle and getting stronger.
Now that I have my strength up I am changing my work outs. It’s all about toning and sculpting right now. So, I am spending less time in the weight room and focusing more on body weight exercises (strength training exercises that don’t require free weights). These workouts are also all the cardio you need. It’s no joke. I hate them but they are definitely worth it. The exercises I love to hate most are Burpees, Mountain Climbers, Plank Walk Pop Up, Pike Push Up, Squat Jumps, Dragon Walks, Hindu Push Up, Assisted Pull Ups, Pike Elbow Up, Driving Knew Push Up, Side Plank… etc… See the video below to know what I am talking about.
I have to admit I’ll miss the weight room though. I loved being the only woman in there representing and lifting more weight than some of the men but I need to chill out unless I plan on looking like a damn man. So… the dance room it is for now… and the weight room will be only twice a week with less weight and more reps.
This video is no joke. I can’t do all of these exercises but I do what I am able to do. Check it out.
Let’s get it ladies so we can be butt nekkid in deez streetz!. I kid. I kid.
