Every week I take time to go through my fav YouTube channels and watch all of the crazy cool workouts YouTube fitness gurus create. The workouts are always fantastic and as a creator and fitness expert myself, I know what it takes to create this type of content. As I continue to watch, I imagine someone who has not graced the gym in a few years testing the waters again and feeling discouraged. That feeling eats at you and your goal of visiting the gym starts to disappear because no one likes to feel defeated because yah that sucks.
Instead of stepping foot into a gym without a plan or trying to do some insane workout on Youtube, it is best to start from the very beginning. I always say start taking walks everyday, stop using the elevator and take the steps and stretch everyday. These little changes will advance you and build your strength pyramid up before you step foot into that gym class or test out a YouTube workout that seems impossible. Once this becomes routine, try a workout like the one I have in the video below. It is a fun elliptical workout that gets your booty, calves, thighs and abs involved. Not only will it help to activate these muscles, this workout will get your heart rate up and work to improve your cardiovascular capacity.
Low Impact Cardio Workout
- Activate your booty by sitting back like you would in a chair when squatting down
- Keep your back flat and do not arch it
- Pull your belly button in towards your spine
- Create a playlist that is exactly 15 minutes long and keep going until that playlist is up. As you advance add a few more songs until you get to 45-60 minutes of activity.
- Warm up for one song and cool down for one song.
In need of a fun playlist? Check out this playlist that I am using in my BootyCamp Class:
Once you can keep up with this cardio routine move ON. That is one thing that many people do wrong, they STOP advancing and this is where you will hit plateaus and stop seeing results. Your body needs change, if it keeps doing what it always did you will stop seeing improvements.
Advance yourself with more workouts from my channel like this one and this one.
