F-F-Friday baby!!!!!!

You know what that means, it’s time for another round of fit Friday fun and boy are we gonna have some fun today!

Today, I thought I’d we’d have ourselves a short and sharp, full body workout  that you can get in and get done in just 15 minutes, no equipment required!

Get in, get it done, and get on with living!

So, here’s what we are going to do –

Maybe not 100 billion but, burpees will be done 😈😈😈

You know you love em’  😘😘😘

5 exercises;

✳️ Push Ups
✳️ Lunges
✳️ Tricep Dips
✳️ Squats &
✳️ Burpees

We will do 10 reps of each exercise  (count reps per leg for lunges) and repeat the entire sequence through for a total of 4-6 rounds, or as many rounds a pretty in 15 minutes.

The aim here is to move from one exercise to the next with minimal/no rest in between – That being said, I want you to listen to that beautiful body of yours and rest as needed.

Anytime you feel like you need to take a break to catch your breath and grab a little drink then by all means please do so, and take all the time you need. However, if possible try to wait until you get to the bottom of each round to do so but, do what you gotta do, OK?!

Nothing complicated, basic movements done with good form for a short but effective total body workout.

And remember, we want quality not quantity, always! Never compromise your form, ever! If your form starts to fail your done, got it?

Take your time, concentrate, focus and breathe through each and every exercise. You are strong, you are amazing, you have big energy! You’ve totally got this!

And because nothing makes a workout challenge more fun than getting a buddy to join you. Why not grab your BFF or a family member or your fave workmate and have them join you, power in numbers baby!

Don’t forget to come back and let me know how you did once you’re done. Either leave me a message in the comments below, or you can give me a shout on the Facebook page or tag me (@EmSwanston) on Twitter , or Instagram (@emsswanston) . I mean it, I wanna hear how you did!

Ok enough chit chat time to work –

 
– 15 Minute –

No Equipment

Full Body Burn

As always make sure you are nice an warm before you start your workout – Run on the spot, do jumping jacks, jump rope, dance around your living room, anything to get you warm then it’s time to get serious.

Finish with a nice little cool down and stretch, maybe take a walk or something anything to help bring your heart rate down. Finish with a few of your fave stretches. Please don’t skip the stretch people, its like dessert for the body.

Now onto our bonus smoothie recipe . . .

How does a nice tall, creamy, dreamy, secretly healthy, deliciously indulgent, sweet potato cream pie smoothie sound?

You guys, this smoothie . . . honestly, I have no words!

I really does taste like straight up dessert!

It’s subtly sweet, perfectly spiced and seriously ( and I mean S E R I O U S L Y ) creamy. For reals, no one would ever know it was secretly good for you!

It really is simply divine, the perfect way to treat yo’ self on this fabulous Friday.

Oh and I should probably mention that not only does our delicious, nutritious, pretty little, iced golden milk latte taste like an absolute dream but, it also happens to be vegan, dairy free, sugar free, keto and paleo friendly – so much to love I tell you ❤️❤️❤️
