My Spring 15 Minute Full Body Workout
I’ve lost a bit of motivation lately, hit a wall and not been as motivated to push myself. I’m still enjoying my free weight sessions but want to get the heart pumping a little bit more. So for the last month I have added a new full body workout to my fitness routine.
So firstly, I’ve been hitting the Cross-Trainer. Ok so this is not part of the Full Body Workout I’m posting but for me 15 minutes interval training on the cross trainer is just the ticket to get the heart pumping. Read my post 5 Cross Trainer Workouts To Try if you would like to have a go at HIIT style intervals on the Cross Trainer.
Then I’m then doing the following 15 Minute Full body Workout. 3 rounds of 5 different exercises. All exercises in each round are performed back to back with a rest after each round; I generally rest for 30 to 60 seconds but it is entirely up to you. The goal is to preform 3 rounds of this workout within 15 minutes. Don’t worry if you struggle to do this but the fitter you get the easier it will become to complete all 3 rounds. It’s quality over quantity! Please make sure you warm up properly before the workout and try and find time for a 5 minute cool down and stretch after.
I’ve added links if you are unsure of some of the exercises.

Spring Running Music Playlist
It’s Spring! Time to get outdoors, no more treadmill for me (yes I am a fairweather runner)! So I’ve put a new running music playlist together. Some tunes are upbeat, some are on this list just because I like them!
I’m trying to increase my speed so I’m busy looking for inspiration and ideas on Pinterest at the moment; hopefully I’ll be posting something soon!
All my workout music is available to purchase on iTunes and other online music stores such as Amazon and Spotify.

New month, new monthly goals for me (sorry bit late posting this). Spring is finally here! It’s lighter in the mornings, days are getting longer and it’s not so hard dragging myself out of bed to go for a run first thing. Spring makes me want to get out more. get more active, get more stuff done!
So far I’ve not done too badly at achieving my monthly goals. Some harder than others but I’ve enjoyed the challenge and the feeling of having achieved something at the end of each month.
- March Fitness Challenge – 30 Day HIIT Challenge
- Be disciplined about making sure I prioritise some time for myself
- Tidy up the garden
- Snack healthily – try these Eat Clean Snacks
- Create a new 15 minute workout
- Get outdoors with my children more
- Put together a Spring Running Playlist
- Go watch Beauty and the Beast (even if it’s on my own)
- Fall back in love with Instagram
- Get ahead with my blog posts and spend a day writing content
Like many people, I guess what I find hardest is finding time for myself and when I do making the most of that time; so that is why I have put this on my list for March.
What goals have you set your self this month?
