Since we discovered Lucy Wyndham Read we cannot get enough of her short but very effective workouts. Therefore we decided to start this Challenge and do it in the afternoon as a bonus workout. What we found, doing these short workouts is that they give us so much energy and instead of afternoon coffee we will do these exercises.
So, here is the plan. Every morning Vikki and I are doing our morning exercises, and we exercise together a lot (we follow the same workouts). However, since we decided to do these short workouts during this Summer, we wanted to add an extra short workout in the afternoon as well and we decided to do Lucy’s 28 day toning Challenge, by doing 1 workout every afternoon.
You don’t need any fitness equipment to do this Challenge, but you do need a few household items, such as a chair, book and two tins. If you watch the first video in the playlist of this Challenge, Lucy explain exactly how it works.
Working out with Lucy for over a month now, we have learned that short HIIT workouts are very effective in weight loss. Of course for this to be true you must follow the “Weight Loss Holy Trinity Rule”, as I would like to call it, and that is: clean eating, cardio and toning.
If you think you are going to lose weight with these short quick HIIT workouts and eat junk food, you are wrong. You must eat clean and watch your portions.
Go small – Lucy Wyndham Read.
So, here is the playlist for this Challenge. Make sure to connect with others on Social media using Lucy’s and our official hashtags: #lucyssquad #lwrfitness #fitandhealthyafter40
Simply follow the workouts in the same order as in the playlist.
