6-Month Home Workout Challenge: #BFBODYFIT WEEK 18

Standard
Please follow and like us:

Welcome to #BFBodyFit Week #18.We have another fantastic workout week ahead. You will find each full length workout video, and workout breakdown below.

I included seven workouts on this week’s schedule. You should still aim to have one full rest day. You can either skip one workout, or stack two workouts to get them all in. Workouts this week range in length from 10-minutes to 30-minutes per round. You also get in a great workout with Jesse. His energy and humor make working out fun.

As always, focus on maintaining proper form during each exercise. Go for maximum repetitions during each movement. If you need to take a break, that’s fine, just get right back into it when you are able.

For HIIT workouts, it’s totally normal to sweat and breath heavy. The intensity level will maximize your workout in a shorter amount of time. This workout technique leads to larger/faster gains in muscle strength and power, as well as aerobic improvements in your cardiovascular fitness level. Before you know it, you will be getting in more reps, and feeling strong, healthy and energized after each workout.

Bonus challenge this week: take a moment each day to be thankful for your physical body. Be appreciative of what your body is capable of, and the strength you are cultivating with your workouts. As human beings, we have a tendency to be critical, but practicing gratitude helps us to feel more joyful in our everyday lives. When I use the hashtag #BFBody and #BFBodyFit, it doesn’t just stand for BenderFitness. It also stands for Best Friend Body. Treat your body as you would your best friend. Be kind to yourself. Nurture yourself. Support yourself. Kindness grows kindness. When you start with yourself, you will find that you have more kindness and compassion to share with others. 

I hope you have fun with the workout schedule this week! Let me know in the comments below, or by checking in on Facebook or Instagram what you thought of the workouts.

Enjoy!
