Undoubtedly, I love fitness. I’ve always been a dynamic girl and have always practised sports: horse riding, gymnastic, pádel, football… When I started travelling, I created my own at home workout routine. Like my fashion style, there’s no reason I would give up on it! My routine is easy and take 20minutes tops. Every part of the body work: arms, abs, back, legs and of course the bum! You can give it a go, it is for every level.
My at home workout routine
I like setting up the timer on 45 seconds on, 15 seconds off to rest. I always start with 5 minutes complete warm up. It is very important, do not miss it, as well as the stretching afterward. Then about the workout: pick and mix your favourite exercises! Squats, lunges, planks, bicycle, butterfly, push-ups… For example, squats have tons of variations: jumping squats, sumo squats, frog squat, squat and walk… There is no limit to your imagination!
It is so important that you always keep a good position: train in front of a mirror at first. If you have any doubt, ask a professional.
Of course, an at home workout routine alone is not enough to keep fit. It is essential to have a balanced and varied diet. The protein intake is indeed important but not only. Make sure to eat a lot of vegetables and fruits, as well as drinking at least 2 litres of water every day. Check out my advices for a good diet! Sleep enough: 8 hours a night! Luckily, I always sleep very well, no matter where I am! On a boat, a plane, in a hostel or in a hammock in the jungle… It’s a real privilege. And try to keep the stress away: it is not good for anything. Yoga, meditation or relaxation often help.
If you follow these advices, you’ll see a big change. They are the key to a good hygiene of life, hence a better body!
My at home workout outfits
You know I love to be stylish: even when I’m working out! I like finding cute matching gym wear outfits. Short or long sleeves, gym bra, leggings… At home, I have every colour! My cherished outfit is a flowery one I bought ages ago, I always travel with it. It is surprisingly still in perfect condition. Of course, make sure to wear good training shoes to protect your joints and body. A lot of online shops offer them. You only have to chose your favourites!
At home workout routines can quickly become boring, so I recommend you vary the exercises. Watch tutorials, and find the best music to accompany you. You can also do it with your partner, in the garden, or during a video call with friends! Choose the time that suits you best. You can combine it with cardio sessions like running, swimming or cycling. I recommend having two full days or rest every week. Indeed, your muscles need to rest as well!
