Apr 28 Morning Workout

(mellow music) – Hey, everybody! Good morning, good morning, good morning, and welcome to today's 30-minute workout sponsored by The AmericanHeart Association.

You guys, I'm so excited to be back.

It's Tuesday morning, and it's time for us to get it in, 'kay? I hope everyone's doing well.

I know this time is kindof icky and odd for us, but what's great about whatThe American Heart Association is doing is giving you kind of a sense of normalcy, giving you a routine.

I think routines are important, especially in times that are abnormal, right? So getting up every morningand doing a workout, or in the evening, doesn'twhen you do it, just do it.

Moving for 30 minutes per dayis excellent for your body.

So you guys, today's workoutis for all fitness levels, and if you are a beginner, take it low.

If you are advanced, take it high.

You can also go kind of mid-level, which is called an intermediate, okay? So guys, I'm Dre Nichols-Everett, The Exercise Habit Coach, and today's workout is pretty, it's pretty simple.

It's not easy, but it's simple, okay? There's a difference, right? So it's not complicated.

We're gonna do a Tabata-style workout, which is actually oneof my favorite things to teach because it's 20 seconds on, working out, and then 10 seconds off.

So basically, you go hard for 20 seconds, and then you kinda go easier for 10.

You don't necessarily stop, but you go easier, okay? So what we're gonna do today is gonna be, one Tabata round isgoing to be cardio, 'kay? And then the next round is going to be like a sculpting, okay? So you're gonna need some weights.

If you don't have weights, just grab some water bottles, grab anything in your house that has some weight on that you can grab well, that you get a good grip on, okay? And we're gonna be doingtriceps and shoulders today, and it's a little bit of legs, I believe.

All right? So you guys ready to get cracking? Let's get going.

So round one, again, one more time, it's eight rounds, 20seconds on, 10 seconds off.

We're gonna do a warmup first, and then go right into the cardio, 'kay? (upbeat music) All right, guys, let's march it out.

Just jogging in place.

You could also be here, guys, 'kay? You could also be here if you need to be.

Jog in place.

Let me make sure I got my music right.

Everybody can hear me good? Yes, yes? I hope.

All right.

Now march it out, just march, march.

This is 10 seconds off.

Next, guys, we're gonna golight butt kicks, right here.

And kick yourself in the butt.

Right there.

If you can't do that, you're just here.

You're just here.

But maybe you can goharder of a march, right? Use your arms and your legs, okay? Push.

Now march lightly.

This is the 10 seconds off, okay? We're going to pretend we have a jump rope in our hands, and we're gonna jump rope.

Ready? Jump rope.

This is 20 seconds on.

Just pretend.

Again, you can also just be marching, depending on your fitness level.

(claps) And march again, guys.

You've got this.

Legs are wide, we're gonna be low.

Let's go right and left.

Let's go, right and left.

Fixing my timer.

One thing I hate is when people, when trainers have a timer, and they go, oh, wait, time.

Isn't that terrible? So I'm very (claps) aware of that, making sure that wedon't go over 20 seconds.

That's our work time.

Ready? Low kicks, guys.

Like kick, if you looked in a mirror, you would be kickingyourself in your knees.

If you're looking at yourself, you're kicking yourselfin your knees, okay? Abs are tight.

Pull 'em in, draw 'em in.

The abdominal musclescan be nice and taut, tight and strong.

Then march again, just march.

You're almost there, guys.

Okay, guys, torso twists.

So just torso twists.

The upper part of your body is twist.

Keep this nice and tight in the center.

We're going into high knees, guys, so, actually low knees, not high.

So if you wanna go high, you can, if you're ready for that, orjust keep it low, right here.

I teach something called something called consistency coaching, andwhat consistency coaching is is a way for you to learnhow to make exercise and eating a healthy diet a part of your life consistently, right? So check out my website, exercisehabitcoach.

com to get some more info.

Up to you.

(music covers words) level or (music covers words) your life and your goals, okay? All right, so guys, Icannot believe this is over! This goes by so fast.

The reason that I love Tabata training is it does go by fast, right? Before you know it, you got areally great workout, and.



You're done.

And you got a phenomenal workout.

Guys, how do you feel? I feel really good.

I hope you do, too.

I really hope you do, too.

Okay, guys, that is the end.

We're gonna do a quick stretch.

Let me get my sweat together here.

I love the sweat, I tell ya that.

All right, so we're gonna step forward with your left foot, right leg up, and just hold it for a nice quad stretch, and stretch it out.

Yeah, Tabata's awesome.

It's just, ya get in, ya hit it, ya get out.

'Cause I don't thinkanybody loves to exercise.

I like it a lot.

I love the benefits, love the benefits.

I don't think anybody loves it.

I do like it.

Okay, heel up.

I'll tell ya a story, though.

I didn't always love exercise.

I used to actually loathe it.

So when I told the peopleI went to college with, my girlfriends that Iwent to college with, that I was gonna be openingup a fitness studio, they were like, what? What are you talking about? You don't work out.

To make it deeper, grabyour toe if you want to.

So let me tell you something, guys.

Everyone knew that I hated to work out.

I didn't wanna sweat my hair out.

You know how that is.

I didn't want to feel that feeling you get when you work out.

I didn't like it, so Ididn't do it for years, until I finally realizedI had to do something, 'cause I wasn't feeling good.

I wasn't happy with myself.

I was in my late 20s, and I couldn't even get up the steps withouthuffing and puffing.

I felt uncomfortable.

And so I changed my life.

I said, you know, you canmake yourself love it.

Do things that you like to do.

So I knew, heel up, push it back.

I knew I loved step aerobics, so I said, you knowwhat, let's start there.

And that's what I did, andthen I fell in love with this.

So I say that to say this.

I am now The Exercise Habit Coach, and I used to hate exercise.

If I can change, I promiseyou, you can change, okay? You can make exercise apart of your lifestyle, and when you do it, grab your toe, guys, and when you do it, it's gonna change your life.

But I bet a lot of you onhere have already done that.

So to The American Heart Association, I say, thank you for doing this.

What an amazing opportunity for people to get together, work out, and just not be alone.

You know, we're all inthis together, guys, and The American HeartAssociation makes it so easy at least for you to have 30 minutes of a fantastic workout witha fantastic community, okay? So, guys, I am Dre Nichols-Everett, The Exercise Habit Coach, and I'll see you next time.
