Ever since Lori found out that she is having a little girl we are feeling more girlie Plus a special announcement at the end of the post.
Lori and I both want to show her little girl that working out and building strong muscles is fun and good for you! You won’t get bulky. Building muscle helps you feel more strong and confident. We also want to show her that working out can help her feel strong on the inside!
12 minute full body workout to build strong lean muscle for the girl in us.
Grab Gymboss Interval Timer and set them for 24 rounds of 10 sec rest and 20 sec work! There is little break so this is a fast moving workout. Perfect for days when you need to be mentally challenged so you are only focusing on the workout, nothing else. 12 minutes and you’re done!
If you have an equalizer you will need it for this workout. If you don’t have one you can use a chair or do things on the floor. We go over ideas in the video.
This workout is made up 4 exercises with one being an isometric move. The L-sit is an isometric exercise, which means it strengthens your body even though you’re not moving. Great exercise that tests and develop your core.
L-sits works a variety of muscles throughout your body like your abs, arms, especially your triceps and hip flexors.
This move is very challenging so if you are new to it start slow. Perform the L-sit with one leg at a time until you’re strong enough to raise both legs together. Or begin by using bent knees then work your way up until you can straighten your legs. When doing a L-sit while pregnant we recommend using bent knees, honor your body and rest when needed.
Stop performing the exercise if you feel pain. This goes for any Purely Training workout.
We love using our equalizer as it challenges us more. We feel our core more activated. Our balance is tested to the max.
