My Current Workout Routine











One of the more popular questions people ask me is what my workout routine is. I have just always been a very active person, since I grew up dancing and running, so fitness is a very important part of my life. So, I thought I would share an overview today of my current workout routine. 

Like I have said before, my schedule is hectic most days (working during the day and teaching dance at night). Therefore, I have become an early riser over the past few months. I typically will wake up around 6 or 7 am and then head down to the gym. I try to workout at least 5-6 times a week. If I am really motivated that week, I will workout every day.  I have recently been going to see a personal trainer (Melvin: check him out here) either 1-2 times a week, and he is amazing! However, I do love to workout on my own and come up with new circuits/cardio routines. Here is my break down of a typical week:

Monday:
Warm Up (any form of LIIT or HIIT for at least 10-15 minutes)
Full Body Circuit
Pro-League Prep Dance Class @ Power House of Dance with Stephanie (this class will kick your booty)

Tuesday: 
Cardio (2 miles running or walk for 30 minutes on an incline of 15%)
Arms & Abs
Teach Dance for 3 hours

Wednesday: 
Treadmill Workout (interval training with sprinting, incline, and walking changes throughout)
Legs and Butt
Teach dance for 2 hours

Thursday:
Cardio (2 miles running or walk for 30 minutes on an incline of 15%)
Back & Abs
Teach Dance for 2 hours

Friday:
Warm Up (any form of LIIT or HIIT for at least 10-15 minutes)
Full Body Circuit focusing on Legs/Butt

Saturday & Sunday:
**Typically, I give myself a break on the weekends. The most I will usually do is maybe a quick run or walk**

Now, like I said before my week DOES NOT look this perfect every week and sometimes I go workout with Melvin instead of my workouts. This is just what I schedule myself to do and try to complete every week. 

As far as my best tip for working out goes, I have learned that free weights are your friend! I used to just run a few miles and do abs, because I was scared if I used any weights I would get bulky. Thats is far from the case. Weights help build strong, lean muscle that you will not see if you just do a lot of cardio like most girls tend to do. I am going to break down what my exact workouts are for each body part starting next week, so stay tuned to get some free workouts you can do in a gym or at home :)

Happy Thursday y'all! Make it a great day!
