Here’s a fast morning workout I put together with the help of some of YouTube’s finest Fitness Gurus. First I got the heart racing and body warmed up with this great, quick (roughly 8 minutes) cardio blast from Fitness Blender:
After you’re warmed up and little sweaty, hit the abs with this semi-brutal, 10 minute ab workout from Six Pack Shortcuts:
Last but not least, cool yourself down with a short (about 12 minutes), relaxing yoga practice from Sean Vigue:
Now that you just put some work in, reward yourself with this delicious oatmeal smoothie. I used the classic instant oatmeal flavor cinnamon & apple, and just made it a whole lot better.
1/4 Cup Steel Cut Oats
1 Scoop Soy-Free Vegetable Protein
1 Handful Brazil nuts
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon Powder
1 Tablespoon Sunflower Seed Butter
1 Cup Vanilla Almond Milk
If you’re on the fence about any of the ingredients, you can always substitute with any protein (hemp, whey, etc.) nut (almonds, cashews, etc.) nut butter (almond or classic peanut butter) or liquid (regular milk, water, etc.).
– Apples: potassium, vitamin C and pectin (helps control cholesterol and blood sugar)
– Oats: fiber and protein
– Brazil Nuts: magnesium, potassium and zinc
– Cinnamon: fiber, calcium, good for digestion
– Sunflower Seed Butter: vitamin E and iron
