My favorite at home LEG workout, no equipment needed!

Morning all!!!

So last night I was in a skype meeting with Jody of FMG Network (who’s helping me put the show together).  Things are moving along really well!  We have plenty of audio fitness tips recorded and some Q&A’s as well.  They are going to start getting circulated soon!  My Facebook Page will also be going through some changes and there is going to be another one launched!  Hopefully very soon so I’ll let you all know when its live!!!  Its something people can contribute to as well!

After the meeting, I stayed up till 10pm to make a double batch of my Yam Muffins.

NOTE: If you do make them, do the Kobocha…the texture is much better and makes the muffins a bit drier.  I used pumpkin last night and they definitely come out more wet.  What I should do is change the recipe to half the amount of pumpkin and more oat flour if you use pumpkin (would change carb counts though).

Anyway, as promised, here is another home workout for you!  I will be doing this tomorrow!!  I took today off since I try to not work out more than 2 days in a row (doctor’s orders).

    Hi, I love your blog, very inspiring!  Just wanted to let you know, initially ,it can be difficult to find the next and previous post links. I didn’t realize I had to scroll to the bottom of the comments to find them. I can deal, just food for thought 🙂

      Thanks for the feedback 😉 I’m not sure how else that could be changed, but I’ll look into it.

    Yes Katie, that is it!! Sorry I didn't get to your comment sooner! 🙂

    Hi Kristine,

    Just wondering if you have any more description for the Volleyball Blocks? Is it just a straight jump upward with your arms stretched out over your head?

    I think I may be over thinking it – but would love to give this workout a try tomorrow AM:)
