Life: Work It Out

Slide1

Hi!

So, today  is the day about working out. I played volleyball since I was 9 until I was about 19-20 years old. For all those years I took working out for granted because it came with the sport and it was so much fun. Well, when my volleyball career came to an end, I realized I had to start working out. It really hit me when I started noticing my nice legs disappearing.

For my workouts I like spinning because it burns lots of calories and also keeps that rush going while working your legs and butt. Did I mention my volleyball career ended because of a back injury? Well, spinning is not so great for my back either; I have to do everything in moderation.

To try to keep things simple, I like quick and effective workouts. Usually, I go to the gym with my sister and run on the treadmill and then do some planks. Other times I warm up on the treadmill and then do yoga. But, sometimes I just workout at home. Jumping rope is awesome because it keeps your heart going and you can really feel your legs and abs working. When I jump rope, I usually do 15-20min. I jump for 1 min and rest for 20 or 30 seconds. Try it. After 10 min, you can really feel everything working. Even your arms!

When I work out, I love being comfy. Tight clothes have never been my things. Not in fashion, not in sports.

How do you guys work out?
