Many of you wonder what i do workout wise at home. So i figured ill be sharing with you my daily workouts, the at least the ones that seem to work best!
This morning called for a quick cardio and abs circuit before school.
Get your interval timer out, there are plenty of free apps!
Preform 50 seconds on 10 seconds rest for each exercise back to back. I did went through the whole circuit 3x!
- Mountain climbers
- In & outs
- Plank walks
- Left side plank
- Right side plank
- Jump squats
- Magazine pikes
- Drop squats
- Reptile oblique crunches
- Tuck jumps
Phew! 36 minutes down, 18 to go! Already a sweaty mess!
Okay, for the next circuit, i also did 3 rounds, 50 seconds on, 10 second rest.
- Squats – ASSS OUT & DOWN!
- Box/chair jumps
- Sumo Ass out donkey kicks
- Opposite toe cross touches
- 2x walking push ups, 6x mountain climbers
If you arnt sure of any of the exercises, just Google them. A lot of them are from Bodyrock.tv but you should be able to find them all. If not, just ask 🙂
Due to not going grocery shopping in about two weeks (t
hanks mom.) I have no cottage cheese or greek yogurt on hand for my night time casein fix. I’d like to present you with my “kitchen sink” dessert.
Chocolate Tofu Pudding:
- 3 oz (serving) of tofu – silken or firm works
- 1-2 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup almond milk
- stevia to taste
- 1/4 banana (optional) Just makes it more creamy
- few ice cubes
- xanthan gum (optional)
- 1 T whey/casein protein (vanilla or chocolate)
Mix till pudding consistency then eat it right away or let it sit in the freezer for 15-45 minutes.
Then top with what ever you wish! After i took this, i topped mine with Peanut butter & co white chocolate wonderful, coconut oil, more cinnamon and 1/2 of my protein reeses i posted on my instagram.
Quick background; in case you weren’t aware, casein is a slow digesting protein, unlike whey which digests in a couple of minutes. It is best to eat before bed, to fuel broken down muscles and help them recover while you sleep. Casein usually takes about 7 hours to brake down, making it a perfect treat before bed! Casein can also be found in meats, eggs, dairy products and as supplements (powders).
If you’re a vegetarian/vegan or don’t eat meat/dairy for what ever reason, protein before bed is the next best thing. It makes you feel full and still helps your muscles recover. Which is where my beloved tofu comes in 🙂 I hope you guys try this out!
Hello my darlings! Many of you follow me already over on my Instagram @ashleyeatsclean & if you don’t, then that’s too bad for you. Just kidding 😉 but really, go click follow.
I asked around if people thought I should make a blog and I got a lot of positive feed back. So here I am, your one & only
A lot of people are curious as to what I do for my workouts because I don’t have a gym membership
yet. So I thought I’d share with you a mainly bodyweight chest & tricep workout I did yesterday that left me SO sore today! I LOVE it!
3×30 wide push-ups
3×20 tricep push-ups
3×20 tricep dips
3×20 close push-ups
3×15 single overhead standing tricep extension (resistance bands)
Wahh I’m so shaky! I did this circuit style, going through the whole thing once, then twice and one more time. No supersets for once.
I then finished with 30 minutes on the treadmill. I tried something different; running on incline! Holy sweat feast. I kept my heart rate above 160 the whole time! I ran 10 minutes on incline, then 10 on normal at a faster pace, then 10 on incline again. It feels so good to change up my workout.
Seeeeee guys, who says you need a gym?!
Now I’m off to watch some criminal minds then hit shoulders & abs!
I’ll be sure to do a more efficient post later! 😘
