Hello divas! I hope that you are having a fabulous week so far. It’s the most wonderful time of the year (at least for a sports fan like myself). That’s right. It’s March Madness! The annual NCAA Basketball tournament, where 68 of the best teams in the country try for a national championship, begins TODAY. And I am super excited because one of my alma maters (and my place of employment) has both the men’s and women’s teams in the tournaments. People spend countless hours filling out their brackets and watch countless hours of basketball and I am among them. But I am also trying to stay healthy and watching hours upon hours of basketball on tv isn’t such a great way to do that. So I thought I would combine my love to watch basketball and the need to get a workout in at home and create the March Madness Strength Training Workout.
One thing I have learned in my quest to get fit and healthy is the importance of building muscles. It is essential to lift weights so that you develop those lean muscles with help to burn fat. This is also important for women to help prevent osteoporosis as we age. This particular workout is a combination of body weight strength training and some with my kettlebells. If you do not have kettlebells, you can use hand weights as a substitute. You can choose to do this workout for the whole game, a half or for a certain amount of time (say 15 minutes). So as you are watching the games (or being forced to watch the games with your significant other) over the next few weeks, take out the weights and do a little multi-tasking.
Are you a #basketball fan? Do you fill out a bracket? What are you looking most forward to during March Madness?
