Never miss a Monday workout
I read this quote a long time back and conveniently ignored it too. But at that, time little did I realise how this one quote was enough to set my mind on track. No-one likes Monday, it is unfortunate that the day falls right after the most wonderful of the weekdays – Sunday. But I kinda like Monday, it sets in motion a whirlwind of activities that I plan to complete over the week. Did I ever tell you that I am a listaholic? I even have a list to figure out what lists I should make.
Anyway, as I said Mondays set the tone of the week and it’s imperative that you rule the day like a boss and workout like a beast.
OK, my workout moves are nothing like a beast, but at best it gets my heart racing 🙂
So today, I am listing out my Monday Workout moves.
First things first : get an awesome playlist! 😀
Time 30 minutes:
Warm up by jogging, walking, stretching or marching at one place.
100 jumping jacks, alternating with cross jumping jacks.
2 sets of 10 side skater
2 sets of 10 lunges on each side
200 fake skipping jumps – since I lost my real jumping rope.
2 sets of 20 squats
2 sets of 25 mountain climbers
30 secs of side planks on each side
1 set of 15 candlestick dipper on each side … my most favorite Blogilates move 😀
2 sets of 10 side to side plank hip twists
20 reverse crunches
30 seconds of reverse planks
10 side kicks on each side
10 front kicks on each side
10 donkey kicks on each side
10 knee push ups
Normal push-ups as many as I can… Which hardly reaches double digit.
And done. 😀
This is followed by 15 minutes of cooling down yoga poses and stretches. My favourites are spinal twists and pigeon poses.
This is what I did yesterday as well. After which I heated crispy taco shells, filled it with tomato, avocado and onions and ate them to my heart’s delight. Psssst… I smashed down a gulab jamun too.
Let me know your workout plans in comment section. I would love to know and be inspired to try out something new as well.
