150-Rep Lower Body Challenge

150-Rep Lower Body Challenge

This lower body endurance workoutย + a 6.6-mile run afterward = sore quads and hip flexors for days.

But really. I was sore to the touch for a SOLID 48 hours. I really have no idea what I was thinking. All I know is that I hobbled around the mall and Target the next day in pain. I looked like a baby giraffe learning how to walk. But it was amazing.

So if you love self-imposed pain, check out this workout. Feel free to tell me how awful and awesome it makes you feel afterward. ๐Ÿ™‚

Exercise videos:

P.S. This is an awesome at-home or holiday workout that requires minimal or NO equipment. No gym = no excuse. I usually complete 50 reps of one exercise and then 50 reps of the next exercise, etc. Feel free to split up the 150 reps however you choose.

Questions:

  1. Do you ever complete lower body workouts and longer runs on the same day?
  2. What’s the hardest workout you’ve ever completed?

Stadium Strength Circuits Workout

Stadium Strength Circuits Workout

Looking for a no-equipment workout that will leave your muscles twitching by the end? You’ve come to the right place.
Video demonstrations:

But really. This stadium strength circuits workout will kick your butt in the best way possible. I was gasping after the first circuit, and my glutes, quads and triceps were begging for mercy after circuits two and three. I used to take a stadium conditioning class every Tuesday but forgot how difficult it is!

With only one month until graduation, I’ll be taking advantage of the stadium while I have access to it. I’ll be doing this exact workout at 12:45 p.m. MONDAY at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium if you want to join me.

Message me on Facebook if you’re interested in coming. We can meet at the entrance to Student Rec. You can store your bags there and retrieve them when we finish.

I hope to see ya’ there! ๐Ÿ™‚

Fun fact: Here at the University of Florida we have a special name for running up the bleachers to the top of the stadium: Gator mountains!

Questions:

  1. Have you ever completed a stadium workout? 
  2. What’s your favorite no-equipment exercise?

Burnin’ Abs Circuit + Abs Memes

Spring (a.k.a. the time of year EVERY person in America decides to go to the gym to work on their abs).
buzz lightyear meme - Abs Abs Everywhere
Unfortunately, it’s just like the beginning of every new year. The gym is PACKED for about a week, and then people give up because they’re not seeing immediate results. What most people don’t realize is that one workout won’t give you abs of steel for eternity.
 
Like anything in life, things worth having take hard work and dedication. But don’t worry. You’ve got time to work on that six pack before summer begins. 
I gathered my favorite ab exercises from core classes at UF and put them together in a “super circuit.” This workout will leave your abs on FIRE. Trust me. They’ll be begging for mercy by the end of the third round of the circuit below.

Video demonstrations for each exercise:

Weighted Side Bends
Incline Sit-Up
Weighted Back Extensions
BOSU Crunches 
Russian Twists
Leg Raises
Bicycle Crunches
Swiss Ball Pikes
Reverse Crunches

By the end of the summer, others will be envious of you and your six pack . . .

Spotify is really the bomb. I spend waaaayyy too much time making playlists. It’s my favorite form of procrastination.

If you don’t have a free account, you’re really missing out. Just add songs, download the playlist to a device and BAM – instant motivation to work out, study, clean the house, etc. Could it be any easier!?!

Spring is right around the corner, so I thought I’d share a playlist that will help put the “spring” back in your step in terms of working out. Check it out below.

Keeping things fresh and new always motivates me to exercise. Changing up my playlists is one of the easiest ways I “refresh.”

I think a lot of you feel the same way, so this new playlist should help you get moving if you need motivation. Check it out on Spotify if you have a chance, and follow me (Brianna Kolota) if you like what you hear.

P.S. I pay $5 per month as a student to have access to a bazillion songs with zero ads. I have the ability to follow and make as many playlists as my heart desires. It’s TOTALLY worth the money. Ask for a Spotify Gift Card $30 (affiliate link!) for your b-day or a holiday. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Questions:

  1. What are some of your favorite workout songs right now?
  2. How do you stay motivated to exercise?

For all the ladies who think they can’t or won’t build upper body and core strength . . .

Yes, it will burn. Yes, it will take time. But you too can build guns, shoulders, triceps and abs like the boys. With dedication to upper body and core workouts like the one below, you can make it happen.

P.S. If you’re a guy, then I think you’ll like this workout too.

Note: I forgot to add it to the graphic, but complete each circuit three times before moving on to the next circuit. 

A few exercise videos:

 I’ve been completing about two workouts like this per week focused and have seen significant upper body and core strength gains after only a few months.

My shoulders and biceps actually don’t fit into some of my shirts now, which is why if you see me, I’m probably wearing a tank top or loose shirt. The weather has been nice, so that’s been my excuse.

Let me know if you give the workout a try. I’d love to know what you think. Also, if you’re in Gainesville, I’m absolutely willing to complete the workout with you some time to show you how to do the exercises. Just call, text, email or message me on Facebook.

Enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

Question:

  1. How often do you complete upper body or core workouts?
