5-4-3-2-1 At Home Workout

Yesterday Minnie was sick.  She had a fever of 104 and the vet had to come to the house to give her fluids, B vitamins, and medicine.  She is feeling much better now, but I missed my trip to the gym since I wanted to be home with her.
"I got a fever"
We have a pretty impressive set of strength training machines in the garage, but I didn't want to venture down that road without Kyle. So I said to myself, "Self. You're a certified personal trainer. You want to burn some calories today.  Get thinking."

I did a little Pinterest browsing and was inspired by a workout with a 5-4-3-2-1 scheme.

I changed a few moves around to incorporate dumbbells and hit every major muscle group. For the second round you can switch out the side lunges at the second minute for DB bicep curls. I did.


I used an online timer and set up the computer right in front of my "workout area".
It was a VERY tiring workout and my legs were on FIYAH (aka fire) by the last 2 minute set. I kept repeating to myself, "Are you tough?" The answer was mainly a "yes."

It should also be noted that I did the workout without shoes. For some reason I felt that at-home training didn't lend itself to footwear.  Well, my calves are very sore today. So if you are looking for some extra calf toning ditch the sneaks for this one.

This is one of my first "at home" workouts that I've designed and I think it can be adapted to any level of fitness expertise.  I would love any feedback or other workout ideas you guys have.

How often do you workout at home?

Love and jumping beans,
Carissa & Kyle

Edited: I also linked up my blog on Lindsay's "Fitness Loves of the Week" post. Check it out for other workout inspiration.
