We have had some requests to share an updated workout routine. You all know we have been into staying active and working out for a long time. Our workout routine has shifted and varied in the last couple years from a lot of cardio and weight training to walks and pilates and lower impact workouts, and now into a mix of both at-home workouts and gym workouts.
We think it is good to have a balance of workouts that are higher intensity, and some that are lower intensity. We do a mix of all types of workouts, and some days yoga or a longer walk outside.
Before we get into workout specifics, we wanted to share about this AMAZING line, Freely, available at Academy. Funny story, we were at Academy a month ago, and our mom picked out this super soft long-sleeve twisted top (see further in post), and had to have it. We ended up loving the brand, too, and are so excited to share their cute pieces with you!
We love that Freely’s line is versatile, so you can wear it to yoga or a workout, and then straight to errands or lunch with friends. Also, their pieces don’t even have to be worn for a workout, they can be for errands, which we love!
Their pieces are all SUPER soft- literally like butter and will have you rubbing and petting yourself while wearing it all day, haha.
We paired it with these super comfy slip on sneakers (have laces, but no tying required!). They also come in a pink color, and are so lightweight! We have size 7 for reference, and they fit true-to-size.
For this next look, we are wearing the same strappy bra, but this time, in black! Fits so well and great for any workout.
How pretty are the straps in the back?!
On top, we threw over this lightweight tie-dye pullover. We love that this could be worn with jeans or shorts, too! It is so soft and comfy. We have size s on.
Our Current Routine
Our workout schedules differ a little bit in that Alexis has the gym membership, and Samantha comes once in a while and works out mostly at home. We both love working out at home because it saves time, money, and is just convenient. At home we will ride our Peloton bike, do weight/strength workouts, yoga flows, pilates, and jump on our rebounder.
If we go to the gym, we will usually do cardio on the stairmaster, elliptical, or walk on the treadmill. We usually do 30-35 minutes of cardio, sometimes more, sometimes less. This usually depends if we get caught up on our phones answering a message or email. After that, we will lift weights and separate it by muscle group like legs, biceps and triceps, shoulders, or back.
We usually try to go one one walk a day (shoot for 2 miles).
We love staying active, so we usually workout 6 days a week, and have one day where we walk or do a slower-flow yoga.
