Finding It Tough To Exercise Often? Here’s A Workout You Can Do Anywhere, Anytime!

Continuing our series of guest posts, I’d like to introduce Amanda Brown. Amanda is a fitness blogger and a senior personal trainer at Fitness First QV Platinum, and is also an Advanced Metabolic Typing Practitioner.

Read time: 5-6 minutes. Workout time: 20-30 minutes!

Let’s face it, sometimes work, family or life just gets in the way of training. The mind is willing but the schedule is not. Hopefully you already have a perfect workout plan, where your aim is to  train 3-5 times per week. This includes 2-3 resistance training sessions to strengthen and lean down, intervals in between to melt excess fat and then possibly  yoga or Pilates to reduce cortisol and increase flexibility.

But things don’t always run according to plan. The moment you go to leave for the gym an unexpected meeting is called, you get an urgent phone call or possibly just the general demands of your day has left you exhausted and wondering where time went?  So I have designed for you a Fitness Blitz that can be done just about anywhere, heck it can be done behind your desk if you so desire??

Exercise Blitz For Even The Busiest Schedule!

1. Chi Squat

Start with a wide comfortable stance with your toes turned out. Inhale and then exhale as you lower into a squat, close your arms and body down into a ball and go as low as your flexibility will allow. Drive through your heels to open your arms as wide as possible to stretch out your chest, inhale as you do this.

Tempo 1-0-1-0, meaning down for 1, no hold at the bottom, up for 1 rest for 0 at the top. Sets: 2-3; reps: 20; rest 30 sec between sets.

2. Reverse Alternating Lunge

This exercise is pictured at the top of this post. Starting with your feet together, inhale then and step backwards to 6 o’clock position and reach your arms back and exhale as you drop down into your lunge. You front shin should be straight and perpendicular to the floor, back knee should just touch the floor. Return to the starting position and repeat on the other leg. Use a 1-1-10 tempo, performing 2-3 sets for 20 reps, and with 30 seconds rest.

3. Down Dog into a Push Up

Start in a plank position with your belly button drawn in. Inhale and push back through the heel of your hand raise your hips keeping your legs straight and flatten out through the middle of your back. Exhale and return to plank position and lower into a push up. Be sure to keep your body in perfect alignment. If you are unable to do push up on your toes drop to a kneeling position to perform the push up. Use a 1-2-2-0 tempo, 2-3 sets of 10, with 45 seconds rest.

4. Overhead Squat

Starting position is the same as your Chi Squat, but keep your arms above your head for the whole set. Inhale drawn your belly button inward then exhale as you drop down into your squat keeping your arms straight, upper body and postural muscle strong and in alignment with your hips. Use a 2-1-1-0 tempo, 2-3 sets of 10 reps, and with 45 seconds rest.

5. Prone Cobra

Lie face down with your arms by your side and palms face down. As you inhale lift your chest off the floor and rotate your palms outwards so that they face away from your with your thumbs pointing at the ceiling. You should feel this working between your should blades, you shouldn’t feel tension in your neck.

Keep you head and spine in neutral and toes stay in contact with the floor. If you feel pressure through your lower back squeeze your butt tighter. Hold until you need to take a breath in exhale and lower. Each rep should roughly take 5-10 sec. Perform 2-3 sets of 10-20 reps.

6. Scorpion

Starting in a push up position with your hands a little wider than shoulder width and your chest positioned between your hands. Inhale draw your belly button towards your spine and bend one leg forward to 90 degrees.

Exhale keep  twist your knee through to the opposite side but still keep your chest between your hands. Then rotate to the starting position and continue your leg rotation to hook behind you, keep squeezing your shoulder blades together. Repeat on the other side and keep alternating. Tempo is 1-1-1-1, 2-3 sets of 10-12 reps.

Stretch – The Perfect Way To Wind Things Down

Leave your static stretches until you have completed all of your workout sets.

1. 90/90

Sit on the floor with front and back legs bent at 90 degrees. With one hand in front and the other at your hip, sit up tall and then try and increase the curve in your lower back by pushing your belly button forward.

You will feel a stretch in your butt, possibly your thigh hold for 5 secs, relax and then push forward for another 5 sec trying to get a little further each time. Repeat this 5 times.

2. Hip Flexor

Go into a lunge position and rest your weight on the ground. Draw your belly button inwards and squeeze your butt to tuck your hips under. The stretch will be at the front of your hip. Go further into the stretch by reaching your arm and bending your trunk to the opposite side. Hold for 20-30 seconds and repeat 3 times.

3. Hamstrings

Crossing one leg behind the other tip forward until you feel a comfortable stretch in the back of your back leg. Hold for 20-30 seconds, then swap legs. Repeat 2 times on each leg.

If you have discomfort in your lower back change the position so that your spine stays neutral, meaning more of a flat back.

So there you have it, a great all over workout that will leave you feeling great and energised! Let me know how you go – and also please share with us any of your own tips for fitting exercise into a busy schedule or whilst on the go.

Fuck Being a Good Girl: Introducing LEADER!

LEADER.
IS.
HERE.

Whoop!! 💃💃💃

ARE YOU READY!?

Ready to drop the bullshit –

Quit trying to climb the damn mountain, hand over fist, one painful and endless move at a time –

And claim your rightful place, now?

It’s time to stop questioning.

It’s time to stop ‘one daying’.

And it’s DEFINITELY time to stop asking HOW.

Thereisnohowfuckthehowfuckitgoodfuckitrightintheass.

(Doesn’t sound like something I would say )

The way you’re going to get there is the same way you were ALWAYS going to get there is the only way that ANYBODY ever gets there is by claiming.your place.now.

Planting your damn flag on top of the mountain and saying what is UP, bitches, what’s been happening, here I now am and so the show can BEGIN!

Introducing LEADER! 🙌🙌

Fuck Being a Good Girl, Fuck Following the Rules, Fuck Working Your Way There Hand Over Fist. You Were Born to Run the Damn Show and Baby? It’s Time.

10 Days.

10 Modules.

10 gajillionty uplevels, in fact, nah, scratch that – ONE freakin’ uplevel, in which we take you straight to where you were ALWAYS MEANT TO BE.

It’s time to quit fucking around here, and claim your rightful place.

Here’s the 10 Modules I will be BURNING INTO YOUR PRETTY LITTLE LEADER SOUL during our time together!

(A Module a day keeps the peasant energy away)

Module 1: Leader Energy

Owning it, being it, living it, no excuses, just dropping in to NOW being the unquestionable next level leader who EVERYBODY looks to and who runs the damn thing. I don’t have to tell ya –
We could pretty much just do this module and you’d be done.

 Module 2: Multi-Millionaire Leader BELIEFS

Wealthy people have certain beliefs which broke ass peeps do not. It is what it is and that’s all it is. Guess what? PURPOSE driven wealthy peeps are another level altogether.
Change your beliefs >
Change your life.
It’s THAT freaking simple.

 Module 3: Leader Sales Hustle and Monetization

Leaders sell how leaders sell and they monetize with NO shame, ALL soul, and all RESULTS.
This is a mindset AND it’s about gettin’ real with what works.
So that’s what we’re gonna do!

 Module 4: Leader Content Creation

Look, nobody needs or gives a fuck about any more lame ass low-vibe please look at me teaching and preaching.
The Internet IS full. Boring does NOT sell. Too many folks are out there just trying to re-churn what everybody else is doing.
BUT THERE IS ALWAYS SPACE FOR THE NEXT MAGNETIC AF LEADER TO TAKE CHARGE.
I’ll show you how to pull that out of you. And explode it to the world.

 Module 5: Leader Social Media OWNING

Let’s get you big.

Engaged.

Listened to.

EVERY WORD HUNG OFF.

And consistently fucking paid.

Social media is a VERY easy tool to make work for you and nope I’m not talking about analytics or algorithms. I’m talking about being everywhere, all the time, in a way they can’t ignore, and also with minimum effort for maximum result.

 Module 6: Leader Squad

Leaders don’t do shit that leaders don’t do or leaders ain’t leaders. We are gonna sort out your support system and streamline your LIFE. With or without ‘team’. I started with this with NO staff or team, NO money, and yet I still knew how to keep my energy and time to what mattered and let other people pick up my slack.
Leaders are supported and lifted up, PERIOD. Let’s get this happening for you.

 Module 7: Leader Daily Disciplines, Practices, Routines, Must Dos and Absolutely-Fucking-Will-Not-Dos!

THIS IS MY FAVOURITE.

Also probably the real thing (energy aside!) that gets you paid big.

 Module 8: Leader ABUNDANCE Creation

ALL the calling-in-of-money shiz-niz you need to know about and EVERY damn thing I have done over the years to dial it up from broke to abundant and rich-from-soul AF.

Module 9: Leader Lit-Up-Ed-Ness and Joie de Vivre

People ain’t gonna be interested if you’re not interesting girlfriend.
We are going to recapture your fucking FIRE, and I’ll show you exactly how.

 Module 10: Leader MAGNETISM

Being the most ‘they can’t look away’ person out there, where no matter what you do or how random it is PEOPLE HAVE TO HAVE IT ‘CAUSE IT’S YOU.

Yep, that is an INTENSIVE learning schedule but we did already agree it’s time to quit fucking around. Besides which, this is not about learning. This is about remembering, remembering, remembering, and motherfucking BEING –

All that you were always meant to damn well be.

BELLS AND 6-INCH STILETTOS OR WHATEVER THE FUCK IT IS YOU WANT TO PUT ON, ONNNNNN.

Literally every possible thing you possibly need to know to NOW run the damn thing is what we’re covering here.

Modules will be delivered directly into the group each day and include LIVE as well as listen / watch / learn at home content. A lot of content! But only exactly what you need!

And baby?

It is going to kick your butt GOOD.

Listen –

I know you have this burning inside of you which is NOT going to go away.

You know and have always known that you are different, not just from the other PEOPLE, but from the other entrepreneurs.

The thing is gorgeous –

At some point you’re going to need to say yes to that.

Let me show you how.

Join LEADER today!

And watch your life blow straight the fuck up to where it’s always meant to have been.
