You know that I love the Peloton App. I really do; however, sometimes I feel like I need a bit more than just the bike. For off the bike workouts I prefer BeachBody.com programs over the Peloton App classes. In particular, I like the Insanity(with Shawn T) and the LIIFT4 (with Joel from Core de Force) for a combination of weight training, cardio and abs. Insanity is available both on DVD and on Demand while LIIFT4 is only available for streaming on Demand.
Because I would never want to abandon my Peloton rides completely, I’ve written a Peloton, Insanity MAX 30 and LIIFT 4 hybrid workout calendar. I thought that I would share it with my followers. It is not for the faint of heart but its a great action-packed workout in under one hour.
By now you know that I love cycling with my Peloton App (and if you don’t, here is my earlier review: My Peloton Bike Alternative). Despite the mad love, I wanted more variety so that I didn’t plateau on the bike. Peloton’s “After the Ride” classes are great but I needed some more oomph. After experimenting with some random classes on YouTube I signed up for a 30 day free trial of Daily Burn to supplement the Peloton and I am super glad that I did. Now what I do is alternate between Daily Burn and Peloton classes.
What is Daily Burn you ask? I only just learned about it myself.
Now that the holidays are in full swing it won’t be long before we start making New Year Resolutions and saying, “Right, its Jan. 1st. Time to get in shape and lose some of those holiday pounds!” I must say it every year…
I thought I would share some of my at home exercise hits and misses over the years. (If you are looking for diet advice, move along…)
WARNING: What you are about to see is a budget friendly home gym that will not look anything like you have pinned on Pinterest. You have been warned…
Last year we converted an unfinished area of our basement into our own mini-exercise room. We put up one wall, installed a couple of doors, a dropped ceiling with recessed lights, a TV and interlocking rubber floor mats. We painted the cement walls bright yellow and bingo – a home gym. The only thing left is mirrors. Here is a step-by-step (budget conscience) guide to how we did it.
