If you’d like to burn fat dancing and tone up at home without any equipment, give this exercise plan a try!
Welcome to week #2 of the 30 days Get healthy and fit challenge (without feeling miserable)!
Hope you enjoyed the workouts from last week, and if you did, you’ll love this week’s plan!
The plan this week includes:
- 3 cardio dance/zumba workouts

- yoga workout
And yes, we’ll be working out every day again for around 30min (Monday is 17min, Thu is 40min).
Report from last week’s workout plan
Last week’s workout plan was awesome, although I must say – I definitely didn’t feel like doing ANYTHING around Thursday.
However, after the workout for that day I felt better again. And on Sunday – the yoga day, I felt I wanted to work out more. But I rested. If you’re just starting – find the plan here.
This is the beauty of doing something every single day – you get into a habit of doing it. If I say – I would work out every other day – I probably won’t do it.
So even if you need to change some of the cardio workouts with yoga – do it! Make exercise a habit. It doesn’t need and it shouldn’t be intense – the best pace for daily exercise is moderate, where you can still talk.
Alright, now let’s get into it!
FOR THIS WORKOUT PLAN YOU’LL NEED:
- a workout mat (optional)
- connection to high-speed internet to play Youtube videos for around 30 min a day
- around 30 min a day
- proper foot wear (dance/zumba – there’s some jumping involved)
- workout clothes
Please consult with your doctor, before starting this or any other exercise regimen!
Today I felt kinda tired, so I did just one round of this 17 min cardio hip hop workout by BeFIT. Now, hip hop dance? Me? I like the music, but I look very very very strange while performing these moves. However it was a great workout, training the whole body – legs, shoulders, back and burning some calories. You’ll do 5 different hip hop moves in intervals. I was sweating about half-way through.
Now this pilates workout by Boho Beautiful is great for the abs and the inner thighs. It’s especially great for the lower abs – whenever I do it, I realize how weak I am. So I’m up for a fun experience tomorrow morning.
It’s so hard to find a good dance workout on the www. And I am so thankful that yesterday I found this dance workout by Linda Eder – it looks similar to the zumba class I had at the gym and like so much fun. Plus it’s amazing to see that people from all shapes and ages can do these moves, not just fitness models.
This ballet training by Sweaty Betty is one of my favorite routines. It makes you sweat, you’re strengthening your entire body and improving your posture – it’s a great feeling!
Absolutely LOVE this – it makes you sweat and as a bonus you learn an entire dance routine by Body By Simone and POPSUGAR Fitness. This dance workout was so addictive, I actually repeated the routine (the actual dance) 3-4 times last time I did it. Which is a lot, because I suck at coordinating my feet and arms.
Still haven’t tried this barre workout by Holabird Sports, but it looks like it will be pretty effective for the abs, arms, thighs and butt. So basically everything we want from a great barre workout.
Yeees, finally! Stretches for tight and sore muscles by Yoga TX…I’m just assuming that there will be some tight and sore muscles after a week of exercising. So on Sunday – take a break, relax and just stretch everything!
Alright, so that’s the exercise plan for this week, I hope you enjoy it! Let me know how it goes and what type of workouts would you like to see more of!
PS: Tomorrow I’ll be back with a COMPLETE beginner’s plan. Because if you’re a complete beginner – you might not be able to do all these workouts yet! So if you have some patience – come back tomorrow 🙂
