Recover from the Weekend Workout

Welp, Monday has rolled around again, and it’s time to hit the gym hard to burn off all those extra calories consumed!

I don’t know about you, but I had a MAJOR cheat weekend. Going out with friends and watching football led to way too much pizza and beer for me.  It’s totally okay every now and then, but I’m definitely feeling BLAH this Monday morning. Hitting the gym for a great workout is what always make me instantly feel better.

So, if you’re looking to recover from a weekend like mine, I’ve got the perfect workouts for you! You can choose to torch those calories with this intense 45 minute treadmill interval workout from Popsugar,  or a total body circuit from Emily Skye. Her Instagram, @emilyskyefit has the best circuit workouts and she is a great inspiration for all things fitness. She posts so many different kinds and they can be done at home or in the gym. I’ve typed up the circuit workout for you, but you can find her workout video that I reposted on my Instagram page, @xotinytips to see how the moves are done!
