Best FREE YouTube Workouts!

April 22, 2016

Y’all, the struggle to get into a regular workout routine continues to be REAL.  I know having the accountability of a workout buddy or a trainer would be super helpful, but I just haven’t been able to find anyone on my schedule, nor have I wanted to pay anyone.  Ha maybe some day.  But lately, I’ve had the best luck with just working out in my living room on a yoga mat with a few free weights.  Then I discovered YouTube!  Seriously, what did we do before the internet?  There is a WEALTH of information, videos, and workout plans to keep me entertained and active without getting bored.

In fact, I devised a little plan to follow for the next few weeks that I’m actually looking forward to!  Check it out:

Monday: Lower Body (Plus permission to dance like a maniac!)

Tuesday: Upper Body (basic, but focused)

Wednesday: Cardio (or I might actually run…and by run, I mean walk fast)

Thursday: Core

Friday: Rest

Saturday: Something outdoors!

Sunday: Yoga or Pilates

My Favorite Channels and Playlists:

PopSugar Fitness – mostly cardio, organized by length of time.

BeFIT organized by type, including yoga, and has series like “30 Day Fat Burn.”

Brett Larkin Yoga favorite yoga instructor with all different styles and lengths of time.  I want to try out the 18 days of yoga series!

Jillian Michaels this lady kicks butt on TV and online, and here’s a compiled list of her (possibly pirated) videos.

BodyFit by Amy the unsung Jillian Michaels. So many videos.  For everything!

Tracy Anderson Pregnancy Project for all my preggos out there!  This non-preggo tried out a video from the early months and I’m STILL sore.  If you’ve ever been to a Define or Barre method class, they’re a little like that with tiny movements that BURN.

Maybe the real secret is that I need some online accountability!  Who’s in??

    I do a program called Tone It Up while it is a paid for program most of their workouts are free on their YouTube channel. I especially love their HIIT stuff because it kills me. It’s more intense than going to a gym! I will have to try out the rest of these!

    […] dish came out DELISH!  I just stuck it in the oven for 45 minutes while I walked the dog and did a quick workout video.  AND I only had to wash a knife, a cutting board, and a baking dish!  Three cheers for this […]
