I love workouts that you can do anywhere, that hit everywhere, and are super efficient!
Some of my favorite at-home exercises are :
- Squat Jumps

- Seated Russian Twist (taking hands overhead between each side)
- Step Up into Reverse Lunge (using a chair/stairs)
- Sumo Squats
- Dolphin Push Up
- Straight-Legged Bicycle Crunches
Performing each exercise for 12-15 repetitions and then repeating all exercises for 2-3 sets.
What is your typical diet?
Daily priorities are: Whole foods, low sugar, and high protein.
I am always using and viewing food as a power source and a support system for my physical activities. I strive to eat accordingly to keep my body as healthy as possible to perform efficiently at the next workout. While I rarely eat red meat, I include other foods that are high in iron, like nuts, lentils, broccoli, green veggies, to keep my iron levels at a healthy level.
As someone who could easily snack my way through the day, I try to focus on three balanced and whole meals, with occasional small snacks in between. But as someone who used to count every little calorie, I no longer pay attention to those numbers. Instead, I focus on the whole nature of what I’m eating and the healthy qualities of the meal, not the caloric quantity.
