Fitness Blender's HIIT Like a Girl : This is a good workout for trying to get back into shape- not super hard but not beginner. It's straight High Intensity Interval Training for 22 minutes and doesn't include warm up, cool down or stretching. I counted the next videos as a "cool down" and did some stretching at the end. I also miraculously had energy during the last move so switched it up to monkey jumps.
Blogilates POP Pilates Upper Body Workout (Arms, Shoulders, Chest): Spider pushups- what is that?!??! But hey, it's 10 minutes and I want Michelle Obama arms so let's go.
Blogilates ROAR Ab Challenge: I love Blogilates. I love Katy Perry (I know, I know). I love dancing while I work out. Really just get into it and it's great.
And that's it! I made sure to stretch afterwards because my favorite excuse to not exercise the next day is "I'm too sore I can't!". I made sure to hit my lower back, calves, and quads. I hold each of these for about 30 seconds:
