Good-morning everyone and welcome to my personal home gym! As we continue living this new normal, we have to adapt to find ways to stay healthy and fit. Did you know that 80% of the people in our country that starts a New Years resolution quit within their first 45 days? What’s even worse is that 50% of the people who commits to a New Years resolution, never even starts! That is why I’m here today to demonstrate 3 workout hacks you can do in the comfort of your own home or neighborhood and keep your New Years Resolution alive!
Hack #1: Resistance Training
The first thing I love to do right when I wake up is hit some respiratory training. Getting your pump on in the morning really sets off your day right and gives you the energy to tackle on whatever else you have to do throughout the day; whether thats more fitness, work, etc. Some exercises I like to do are: TRX Oblique Crunches, Squats, Bicep Curls, and Bent Over Tricep Kickbacks. I usually like to do a set of 3 for each of these exercises with a 30-45 second break in between. If you’d like to learn more about how to perform each of these exercises, watch the video above!
Hack #2: Cardiovascular Training
After some early morning respiratory training, I then like to venture off on either a hike, run, or one of my favorite spots, the Calabasas Stairs. This place is the best because the first half is a hike which curves and leads you to this amazing stair incline, surrounded by beauty and nature!
I tend to hit the stairs 4 times, 4 up and 4 down, after my resistance training. Its a great way to end an amazing workout. Now, we are onto nutrition, which is the most important part!
Hack #3: Nutrition
People say you are what you eat, and that is actually very true! Nutrition takes up 80% of your fitness results. If you workout hard but eat poorly, you will never see the results you are looking for. Enjoying a healthy post-workout lunch, filled with protein and veggies, is important to lock in all of that physical work you provided for your body.
So thats why today we are at Porta Via in Calabasas, one of my all time favorites when it comes to my nutrition post-workout meal. Today, I ordered an arugula and chicken salad chopped and tossed to fulfill my nutritional workout routine.
