After a weekend in Scottsdale, I seriously needed this workout! It’s always more fun to workout when you have new athletic wear and I am loving this set. A couple weeks ago I put a poll on instagram to see if you liked this blue set or a gray one, and you all said you liked the blue… so here it is! I really liked it before it came in but loved it even more than I thought I would when it came in.

This athletic wear is from Astoria Activewear which is a brand I have recently found but I love. The leggings hug and suck you in in all the right places. I love how this look can take you from the gym to running errands to grabbing a smoothie! If you use the code THEMERIDIANBLISS at checkout you will receive 15% off your order at Astoria Activewear!

Now onto the workout for today!
Cardio warmup

Set one: 15 stagger lunges, 20 side taps in a plank, 15 bicep curls in a T (repeat three times)

Set two: 10 squat reverse lunge kickback, 15 weighted dead bug leg extension, 15 reverse grip front raise (repeat 3 times)

Set three: 20 frogger bridge raises, 15 around the world crunches, 15 skull crushers (repeat 3 times)

Happy Wednesday and happy exercising!

Workout Wednesday- Sept. 16, 2020

As promised, this week’s Workout Wednesday post features a fully pregnancy friendly workout. Although it is a a good workout if you are pregnant, this is also a good workout if you are not expecting. One word of caution, always check with your doctor before starting a new workout or exercise routine to make sure it is safe for you and your baby. Everyone is different and every pregnancy is different, so it is always a good idea to check in first. I have been lucky enough to keep up with my regular workout routine during this pregnancy so far, with only a few modifications. I am hoping to be able to continue exercising throughout the rest of the pregnancy as well.

Cardio warm up

Set one: 12 banded leg raises, 15 squat to shoulder press, 15 reverse fly (repeat 3 times)

Set two: 10 walking lunges each side, 20 side to side body weight squats, 15 tricep extensions (repeat 3 times)

Set three: 12 wide squat with dumbbell, 10 dumbbell bird dog each side, 10 bicep curl to reverse row (repeat 3 times)

I don’t know about you, but I needed a good workout after a long weekend. We do love a long weekend but also know that we do better keeping up our exercising schedule when we are in more of a routine, anyone else? For this workout all you need are a couple sets of dumbbells. For one of the exercises we used a medicine ball but it could easily be done with a single dumbbell, we also laid on an exercise ball for the chest press but you can do it on the ground. A few simple modifications will take this workout we did at the gym straight to your living room!

Cardio warm-up
Set one: 15 medicine ball out & in, 10 front raise overhead down side (around the world), 10 side gallops each way (repeat 3 times)
Set two: 10 plank kickbacks, 30 punches with weights, 12 bicep curls (repeat 3 times)
Set three: 10 plank rows, 10 chest press on a ball, 12 tricep extensions (repeat 3 times)
Stretch to cool down

Happy workout Wednesday!

Who needs a good workout to relieve some stress from the work week… just me? Today’s workout was a fun one to do! I don’t know about you, but exercising always refreshes my body and my mind! I hope this can do the same for you today too. In the words of Elle Woods, “Exercising gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy.” Happy exercising and happy Wednesday friends!
