Grokker Mad Lib & #1MillionMinutes Challenge!

Happy Tuesday! Did everyone survive Monday? Who kicked off the week with a workout for #1MillionMinutes? I got in an upper body body dumbbell workout that I found on Grokker with my kids by my side.  I woke up late, they woke up early and that meant family bonding time in my home gym after breakfast 😉 

Working out with kids

It also meant that the baby doll needed to get a workout in too.  My 4 year old insisted that the “baby weights” (3 lbs) were for her baby.  Apparently she’s graduated to the 5 lb dumbbells! 😛 

Anyway, In case you missed it, I’m participating as a challenge leader on the Sweat Pink Team for #1MillionMinutes this week.  Here are the weekly prompts if you need a refresher: 

  • Monday: What does your weekly workout routine look like? Show us a week in the life! @grokkerinc #grokkermillion #1millionminutes #sweatpink
  • Tuesday: Try a video workout on Grokker and share a workout selfie! @grokkerinc #grokkermillion #1millionminutes #sweatpink
  • Wednesday:  Show us a unique space where you’ve fit a Grokker workout in. Hotel room? Balcony? Stairway? We want to see it!  @grokkerinc #grokkermillion #1millionminutes #sweatpink
  • Thursday:  How do you squeeze in a workout when life gets crazy busy? ’
  • Friday: Free Friday! @grokkerinc #grokkermillion #1millionminutes #sweatpink
  • Saturday: What’s your best tip for staying fit while traveling?  @grokkerinc #grokkermillion #1millionminutes #sweatpink

This week we’re partnering up with Grokker, the best place to find streaming fitness and cooking videos, to help us get closer to our goal of #1MillionMinutes!

The Sweat Pink team has curated a selection of some of our favorite videos on Grokker (seriously, they have EVERYTHING you can imagine on there). Whether you’re a beginning or a high-intensity expert, looking for something mellow or want to get your heart pounding, there’s something for everyone. Check out some of our favorites and get exploring!

Grokker Mad Lib!

I’m so excited to rack up more minutes using video workouts from Grokker! There’s everything from yoga [workout type] to strength training [workout type] for everyone from beginners to advanced, and I’m especially pumped to try the High Intensity Sports Conditioning Circuit. [workout name]

because it will make me extra prepared for my marathon [adjective].

I plan to do my video workout in my sunroom [place] before I blog [activity] and after I have my coffee [activity]. My favorite thing about video workouts is you can follow along [noun], and they’re a super convenient way to get sweaty when I’m short on time [verb].

My goal is to hit 250 [number] minutes this week!. I’ll do 40 Minute HIIT Workout [workout name] on one of my more intense workout days, and Metabolic Conditioning [workout name] on a rest or lower intensity day.  I challenge Nicole (Fitful Focus) [workout buddy name] to beat my # of minutes or to do Abs & Butt Workout [activity / video name] with me!

Looking strong girl and super cute kids :) I love home workouts, I don't like leaving my family in the evening after working all day so home workouts work best for me. I do love the gym atmosphere though.

    Aw, thank you! Home workouts are great but I do know what you mean about the atmosphere!

    Is it weird that I enjoy hill workouts on the treadmill?! I think they are fun, haha!

This seems like a great service. But honestly I don't do at home videos. I used to but now if I don't get myself out of my house, the workout isn't going to get done.

    I do it out of necessity but I totally understand having to leave the house in order to be motivated! :)
