Youtube Exercise Challenge Day 4

So you’re probably wondering why I am only on Day 4? It was the weekend and even though I did complete my 20 minutes of movement, I decided to get out of the house and go for a few walks get some fresh air and make the most of the beautiful weather. It is now the dreaded Monday again and I’m back to it with the challenge. This morning I was in the High Intensity Interval Training kinda mood, so this is the video of choice.

What You’ll Need:

Just yourself, a bottle of H2O and maybe a yoga mat

Skill Level: Beginner/Intermediate

Sweat Rating: 5 out of 5 (see below picture)

Fun Rating: 3 out of 5

Quick Fit Summary:

This isn’t the flashiest of videos, it is basically just the instructor in her home, with her dog. BUT boy oh boy does she get you working. I’ve even inserted a lovely sweaty picture of myself 10 minutes after just to prove how much this video gets your heart pumping. H.I.I.T is great for burning calories and getting that big workout in, in a short space of time. The moves are pretty easy to follow along and I like the instructors emphasis on watching your form. However I’m not going to lie and there were a few moments where I had to bring it down to my level. I also can’t lie and have to confess that the very last set of burpees were sat out by me, I just couldn’t do it. I’ve rated it only a 3 for fun, as I really don’t enjoy H.I.I.T very much, even though I know it’s a great work out.

Stay cool everyone and Enjoy the week ahead,

Day 2 Youtube Exercise Challenge

This morning I felt like doing a little cardio mixed in with the dumbbell weights I’d just bought. So again after a quick search on this is the video that kicked my butt this morning.

What You’ll Need:

Dumbbell weights (mine are 2kg each but I’m thinking I’ll upgrade to 5kg)

Skill Level: Beginner

Sweat Rating: 4 out of 5

Fun Rating:3 out of 5

Quick Fit Summary:

This is another great beginners video. Again the music is pretty cheesy as is the instructor, but the moves are easy enough to follow. It really gets the heart rate pumping and there were a few times where, because I am such a novice I had to slow it down a little. Definitely recommend if, you are like me and have only just got back into some kind of physical activity. The video is only 23 minutes so it is also perfect for those of you with limited time (I’ve been crying through the 2 hour series finale of Dawson’s Creek) Well until tomorrow,

Stay Cool,

Bailey xox
