You know the quote that goes something like: the only reason you should look back is to see how far you’ve come?! That was my thought behind this blog post.
I oddly enjoy looking back on the previous year. Tony Robbins often says we overestimate what we can do in day but underestimate what we can achieve in a lifetime. Well aren’t I just full of quotes today?!
I think one of the reasons I enjoy looking back is because it’s easy to feel unaccomplished when your to-do list is a mile long and (if you’re like me) it’s been since 2004 that you actually finished everything on that list. Yet, when you look back at the year, you do see, in fact, that you accomplished quite a bit.
All of that to say, I went back and looked at which workouts you viewed the most in 2017. If you’re looking for a workout to do in the next few days, these favorites would be good for that.
Also, pretty funny how your favorite workouts go: legs/glutes, abs and arms. Those are my favorite workout days too!
1. LEGS + PLYO WORKOUTS
I particularly like this one for the combination of weighted and plyometric movements. It’s a muscle-fatiguing workout but also cardio too!
2. MAT AB CIRCUIT
A personal favorite of mine. When I do ab workouts, I’m all about the plop on a mat and complete it. I love that this workout is one you can do in the same place whether that’s at the gym or in your home.
3. LEG + GLUTE CIRCUIT WORKOUT
Another one that’s great for the weight/cardio combo. I think the reason I like that approach so much is that it’s focused on sculpting and fat loss to see the muscle we are working so damn hard for.
4. TRADITIONAL WEIGHT TRAINING LEG WORKOUT
This leg workout is what I call more “traditional weight training.” It begins with a bit of a glute pre-exhaust so this workout definitely has the booty emphasis then goes into weighted movements.
5. BICEPS + TRICEPS WEIGHTED ARM WORKOUT
With all that booty work, I’m glad an arm day made the list. This is a great arm workout if you’re looking to develop biceps that pop!
6. ARMS + ABS WEIGHT TRAINING CIRCUIT
Arms and abs is more than just a training split for me; it’s actually a training approach. With upper body training, I have a harder time raising my heart rate, so I’ll add in moves like abdominal exercises for more of an “active rest.”
7. TIGHT ARMS WEIGHT TRAINING WORKOUT
This is a great overall arm sculpting workout and one I would regularly use in my routine.
