Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

WIOW: June Workouts

June workouts have been intense, and I’m loving it!

I have something up my sleeve I’m completely ticked pink about (more on that soon), and it’s making me work harder than usual.

That means high rep, full body blasts that kind of make me want to die at times.

It’s been quite a few months since I’ve focused heavily on high intensity challenges, so it’s alarming
what a swift kick in the rear it’s been!


I used to have quite an affinity for push-ups. However, after doing more isolated work in the weight room over the last 4-5 months, I was shocked how quickly I digressed.

Real life.

The push-ups, oh the push-ups!

Dead. Dead. Dead.

Same with burpees.

I almost want to punch myself in the face for making me do them.

So yeah, let me walk you through a couple things I’ve been doing to prep for that previously mentioned “thing” that’s tickling me pink. 💗

My own workouts
There’s plenty of “boot camp-esque” workouts on the blog here, and I’ve been channeling them like a champ.

Millionaire Hoy’s YouTube workouts
This guy.

Remember earlier where I mentioned nearly dying at times? Think gasping for air and sweating swimming pools.

It’s because of Millionaire Hoy’s at-home friendly killer workouts.

He’s got something for everyone- super long intense workouts, short workouts, body weight only, low impact, isolation workouts, kettle bell workouts… Like seriously hundreds of workouts.

If you’re in a workout rut, check out his YouTube channel for inspiration.

And perspiration. Lots of that too.

Huge reps in the weight room
To go the distance, I’ve recently switched to light-medium weight, higher rep- based workouts.

For example, I did a 500 rep workout Saturday. I typically like to be in the 3 sets of 10-12 rep range. However lately I’ve been shooting for 20 reps per set, which feels quite different than my usual! 😳

I love the changes, and feel my endurance strengthening again.

It’s funny how easy it is to get into ruts, right?

I hope today’s post inspired you to bust out of yours!
