Updating My FitnessBank Step Challenge Plan
I don't have a treadmill or trainer bike, so it's just me and my feet. I have a staircase, but stair repeats get old REALLY FAST.
I decided — like almost everyone else harboring in place — to check YouTube for new workouts. After some trial and error, I added two new fitness workouts to my schedule. The beauty of these workouts is you make them as intense as you want.
Leslie Sansone's Walk at Home Workouts
Leslie Sansone's Walk at Home workouts reminded me of the old-school Jane Fonda workouts I did years ago after giving birth. Leslie guides viewers through a walk-in-place routine that includes working your arms and core.
Her YouTube Channel offers 10, 20, 30 and 45 minute workouts. Some are group workouts, while others are Leslie alone. I've done 3 different workouts this week, and loved them all. The 45-minute heart-healthy session was a sweat fest.
Leslie has a variety of walking workouts, including core, HIIT, weights, and bands. I add the 30-minute walking workout late in the day when I'm behind on my daily step total.
An added benefit for me is that Leslie is from Pittsburgh. Her voice sounds like my hometown.
Joanna Soh Official: 10,000 Indoor Step Challenge
My other new workout partner is Joanna Soh Official. She launched her 10,000 Daily Step Challenge in February, 2020. This workout raises your heart rate and uses every muscle.
Joanna leads you through a series of movements over 30-minutes. There's a 30-second clock in the corner for each movement which I found comforting. (Of course, I can do that move for 30 seconds!)
Joanna has workouts for cardio, abs, thighs, shoulders, and more. Plus, diet and meal prep tips.
I'm loving these new workouts. I plan on trying more from both ladies. They offer serious sweaty workouts + extra steps I need for my challenge!
If you have a favorite YouTube workout, share it with me on Instagram or Twitter. I'd love to know what you recommend.
