Happy Friday! I’m beyond excited to have a guest post today from the fabulous Jess who is the author of the Blonde Ponytail! She’s a ROCK STAR! Her workouts are KILLER; her body is amazing; she is dedicated to health and fitness; and she owns a ridiculously adorable Golden Retriever. Make sure you check out her website and give this workout a try. You will not be disappointed! I hope that everyone has a fabulous weekend! Please make sure to stay hydrated and wear sunscreen. See y’all on Monday and let me know how you feel after trying this out! THANKS AGAIN JESS!
Hi She Rocks readers! I’m Jess and the author of Blonde Ponytail. I am so excited to “meet” you as Kathleen is one of my fitness and healthy living inspirations. She lives it, breathes it and owns it!
I’m a NSCA-CSCS and certified Spinning instructor. I work full-time in higher education but my husband and I just relocated for his job (he’s a college baseball coach) so I’m currently looking!
As a former collegiate athlete, I like being challenged and testing my limits even now. My philosophy with working out is the same. Go hard, give it your all, and reap the benefits.
Kathleen asked me to share one of my favorite workouts. Because I am a runner first, I tend to incorporate sprints into many of my circuits. My husband and I did this workout while traveling; he is my best workout buddy!
Out of the ‘Box’ WOD (workout of the day)
Run 800m (.5 miles)
20 air squats
30 full sit-ups
Repeat 6 times
Workout totals: 3 miles, 60 push-ups, 120 squats, and 180 sit-ups.
If running isn’t your thing, I have plenty of at-home workouts for you too. Balance is key so don’t be a cardio queen without strengthening those muscles too.
Thank you for reading and feel free to contact me with questions or a friendly (virtual) visit!
