My Favorite Things for April!

It’s been a while since I did one of these posts!

I still have favorite things that I come across all the time!

This month is a little different since we are all stuck at home and there is NO gym to go to!

Many of us have had to get creative with our workouts! I am right there with you!

We have quite a good bit of fitness equipment here at our home and I can get a great workout in for the most part but I miss the atmosphere of the gym at times!

Since I’ve had a little more time on my hands I’ve been experimenting with different workouts! Which leads me to my first favorites of the month of April!

TRX and Kettlebells

I have loved my kettlebells for a long time and my TRX since I got it earlier this year!

But combining them in my workouts has been awesome!

I use them together for deadlifts, squats, rows and a ton of other exercises!

It has added a level of balance and using my abs in a different way! I have been quite sore a couple of times! Which seems odd since I usually lift rather heavy most of the time. I feel its because it uses companion muscles!

This has been a great time to work on my fitness level and just experiment!

My next favorite is not really fitness related but does relate to the overall healthiness of your feet!

Birkenstock Sandals

I have struggled with foot issues for a while. I have plantar fasciitis in my right foot that flares from time to time and I strained the peroneal tendons in my left foot!

A regular flip flop just won’t cut it! They don’t offer much support and that’s a priority especially for plantar fasciitis!

Last summer I had a cheapo pair of knock off Birkenstocks. They worked well enough. But I broke down and purchased a real pair that were on sale! A really good sale!

They have mad a huge difference in my feet! I love the support!

My feet feel much better!


What about you?

Have you used a TRX and kettlebell together? Maybe separately? If not give them a whirl! You will love them!

What about Birkenstock’s? Do you love them? Do you love them but think they’re ugly? (OK maybe I do a little!)

Until next time!

XOXO-Amy
