I weigh 95 lbs most people assume I am an active person but in reality I have a love/ hate relationship with fitness and I am underweight.
I used to love working out a lot but I kept losing weight and it stressed me out cause I just wanted to be fit and that’s when I learnt I’m doing the wrong exercises for an underweight so I stopped.
After doing research on what is suitable for my body type I came up with a new routine that works for me (so far lol)
I try to work out twice a week and as much as I don’t enjoy it as I used to, I won’t deny how therapeutic it is. I’ve outlined my routine for you below:
After a quick warm up (mainly 3 mins of stretching and jogging on the spot) I do at least 3 mins of sumo squats.
This is part of my upper body workout I don’t have equipments but it still works.
Fun Fact: The first time I did this I ran to the toilet cause I felt like throwing up and I had only done it for 40 seconds.
I love and hate burpees at the same time. I keep telling myself I’m not quitting just to get through with it.
This is my cool down and helps me with flexibility. I do this for about 3 mins.
Warm up – 3 mins
Sumo Squats – 3 mins
Overhead press – 3 mins
Burpees – 3 mins
Yoga/ Cool Down – 3 mins
Total Workout Time – 15 mins
For some reason time seems to go slow when I’m working out.
As I am starting out this new routine, 15 mins is my set time but as time goes on I’ll decide whether I need to change things up or increase time (depending on my progress). But for now that’s my fitness routine.
I’d love to know what your fitness routine is. And how often do you workout?
