Be kind to yourself. Sometimes you are the only person you can depend on.

Here’s your workout!  NO EQUIPMENT NEEDED!

Warm-up:  

Run a half mile, or do two sets of 75 jumping jacks.

Workout:

12 sets of 12 of the following:

Push Ups

Try to vary every 12.  For example, regular, wide, triceps, pike push ups, one leg, and so forth.  There are benefits to trying different types of push ups!  This post from Self magazine, of which I am a fan for the way it encourages us to all take care of ourselves, details 16 different kinds of push ups!  I often even do them from the front of my knees, because I can do a fuller push up as my shoulders begin to fatigue.

Squats

Same as with push ups.  Change up! The same ole squats for 144 squats does get boring, so try some new kinds!  Feel free to follow this article post I found that offers 12 (perfect!) various squatting challenges.

Sit Ups

Oh my-the sit up!  This is the one exercise I detested more than push ups during my entire basketball career (elementary, middle school, high school, college, and semi professional) and my military career. Needless to say, I am always glad to not ever do a “regular” sit up!  I love this article from Livestrong.com, which offers 21 different variations!

Lunges

Yes, lunges.  Only 12 sets of 12, and yes, vary them up! Again, I turned to the website for Self, and I definitely felt my glutes from all the angles!

Keeping Track

One last thing…you don’t want to lose track of all of these lovely 12 x 12 x 4 moves, so here is a quick way I jotted down to help me keep up.

Have fun, and remember, we are all in this together! 

Don’t forget to follow my blog, pretty please!

Love always,  

Rachel
