16 minute cardio strength home workout.
Hey Purely Fit Friends!
How was your weekend? As you saw yesterday we’ve been having a blast these past few days with our mom! Think we have hit every store possible here in Charlotte, haha. What is it about shopping that is so addicting? It’s been a nice change of pace for us these past few days. Everyone is getting more and more eager for baby M to come! Lori will be sharing her update tomorrow including pictures of her housework.
Today is our last day with mom before she heads back to FL tonight. We will also be getting some more visitors as our dad and some of his friends have a very, very long layover here in Charlotte, so they are coming to see the house. Oh and eat some dinner 😉
Let’s get to today’s workout as it is one that we really enjoyed and hope you will too.

We suggest for different fitness levels:
B-fits (beginner peeps) – Follow modifications from video. Take breaks when needed. Step instead of jumping in the jump squats. Use a light weight.
A-fits (advanced peeps) – No breaks. Push yourself each interval. Use a moderate to heavy weight. Go deep in the squats.
FIT moms (pregnancy and post partum recommendations) – Do the modifications mentioned in the video. Even though Lori was pregnant we recommend changing some of the moves. Omit jumping if it is too much. Reduce the rounds to 12 if 24 rounds is to much. Use light weight. For 1st and 3rd exercise do side planks reaches instead of frontal. Do burpee on chair or equalizer as Lori does here. for the weighted burpee squat jumps.
Get yourself warmed up and then come work out with us.
Plank rows are great for working your core as well as building a sexy back.
*disclaimer: make sure to consult with your doctor before trying anything new with your workout routine.
