Happy Healthy Holiday Challenge 2014 - Week 3 Workouts

Monday, December 8, 2014

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Mine was packed with fun events like my first half marathon since Belle was born, Annabelle's Christmas Pictures with Santa, and lots of family time, but more on all of that tomorrow. Today, we need to talk about our Happy Healthy Holidays Challenge workouts for this week. I have some fun and challenging workouts planned for us, and since I am done with my training for the 1/2, I will be able to fit them all in with my teaching schedule! Woohoo! I am ready to have more strength training in my life.

If you are new to the challenge, or you are looking for more workout ideas, check out week 1 and week 2.

This first workout, only requires one set of dumbbells. You will probably want to choose a medium weight (something you can do shoulder presses and bicep curls with). If you have multiple pairs of dumbbells, by all means, feel free to change out the weights as you wish! For a demonstration of all of the exercises in this workout, see the video below or head on over to my YouTube Channel!


Next up, we have our body weight only workout for the week. These are the workouts that are perfect to take with you if you are traveling because they require zero equipment and just a little bit of space. This workout is timed instead of counting reps to change things up a bit. You will perform each exercise for 45 seconds before moving on to the next one. Try to move quickly from one exercise to the next and then, if needed, rest at the end of the circuit. Depending on how much time you have, and how much of a challenge you are looking for, you can repeat the circuit 3-4x's!

Our next workout is a total body burner using the kettlebell and resistance tubing. You will perform 12 reps of each exercise and repeat the entire sequence 4x's. It should take you around 20-30 minutes depending on how much time you take to rest in between sets. Enjoy!

And there you have it, three great workouts for another kick butt week of the Happy Healthy Holidays Challenge. Don't forget to get in 10,000 steps every day and share your progress on facebook, instagram, or twitter using the hastag #hhhchallenge14! I would also love to hear how your challenge is going in the comments below!

What is your favorite workout you have done since Thanksgiving?

Do you prefer to workout at the gym or at home?

In health,

  3. Ok Ok I think I can totally do this seriously. I am doing it already. 10K steps a day (15K this week) plus workout at least 5 days a week. I think I got this. #wowlinkup
