I’ve got something to cure your Monday blues: the Holiday Slay. That’s right friends, another fitness challenge is coming your way. This time we are focusing on short, effective workouts and practical wellness tips to keep you feeling fit and balanced this holiday season, while still enjoying all the best things the holidays have to offer. You’ll be able to fully enjoy yourself this holiday season AND still feel awesome come January.
I’ll be releasing a 4-week workout plan of quick, awesome workouts on November 11. If you’re interested in getting first dibs, sign up here. We’ll have a group of lovelies starting the program together on November 28. Slay all day friends.
Oh, and I promise in 2018 I’ll stop using the word slay all the time. But after the Summer Slay I figured we would just roll with it for this year. Forgive me.
Ok. Now let’s talk about workouts.
I’ve been focusing a ton on my own hip mobility, core strength, and healing my low back which has given me trouble for over 10 years. Recently, something miraculous happened – my back hasn’t hurt! Not one bit. Normally it aches from the slightest little twinge, but lately, it has been solid. I attribute this to a combination of improving my hip and hamstring mobility, strengthening my core, strengthening my back, and being generally less inflamed from being on Whole30. This is literally the first time I haven’t had back pain since high school, so I’m rolling with it.
Here’s how I moved last week.
Part 1: Pull Up Queen Circuit
Part 2: 12-9-6-3 Reps of the following:
Push Press Right Arm
Push Press Left Arm
Glute/Ham Raise (Here’s a good tutorial for these)
8 Kettlebell Deadlifts (Heavy)
20 Ab Mat Sit Ups
15 Minute AMRAP:
10 Kettlebell Swings
10 Sumo Deadlift High Pulls
Farmer’s Carry (Carried two 35-lb kettlebells along the length of my gym)
5 Tuck Jumps
–Pull Up Queen Circuit
-Hip and Hamstring Mobility Exercises (check out the live video I did in my Facebook group for some of my favorite hip/hamstring moves)
Foam Rolling, Stretching

And that was my week! When was the last time you felt yourself get stronger? Wasn’t it amazing?
Are you looking forward to the Holiday Slay?
