I’ve been trying to do more yoga regularly versus one day a week. I realized that I really enjoy doing yoga right after work to let go of everything that happened in the day to help me wind down. It is especially nice to do in the evenings to prevent soreness the next day from my lunch workout. So roll out your mat, be kind to yourself, and STRETCH but don’t forget to breathe! 😉 If you have any questions, feel free to comment below!

Please comment below if you would like me to type up all the poses I flowed through. Notice that I added a vinyasa between some poses to get my heart rate back up and to keep my body warm. My hamstrings and hips were extremely tight so I like to get sweating so they loosen up. I incorporated a lot of hip openers and hamstring stretches due to being sore from leg day + it helps contradict working a desk job and sitting for long periods of time.
Fun little video of my yoga flow before my phone died/got overheated. The Arizona sun is NOT one to be messed with. It was in the 80’s and yet my mat still felt like hot lava. Enjoy 🙂 Music: Black Out Days By Phantogram
Wide Grip Pull Ups – 4 x 6 (Used assisted machine with 30lbs)
Single Arm Bent Row– 3 x 6-8- (I used 27.5lbs)
Lat Pull Downs – 4 x 10 (I used 75lbs on the first set & 70lbs on the rest)
Declined Sit Ups w/ 25 lbs plate – 4 x 10 (lets be honest, I totally dropped the plate on my last set because I was dying so if the plate is too much for you don’t use it!)

If you are looking to squeeze in a workout but don’t have a lot of time combo exercises (training more than one muscle group) are your new best friend!
I hit the gym on my lunch breaks at work; I have to keep things simple and effective because I only get about 40-50 minutes. Also, I don’t do that much cardio for that reason and have found weight training to more effective than cardio. Due to this reason, I lean towards incorporating combo exercises where I can feel the burn and get my heart rate up. I tend to rest for 1 – 1 1/2 mins in between sets but listen to your body if you need more or you can shorten it if you prefer less rest.
This is one of the workouts I have planned for myself later in the week and wanted to share! Eventually, I will film or take pictures of tutorials of exercises but for right now I have linked youtube videos to each.
