March Madness and a giveaway!

It’s Friday!! I’m always excited for Friday. We have a new exercise to introduce today. Did anyone try the lateral jumps? They are great for getting your heart rate up, just add them as intervals to any workout you are already doing, even weight lifting.

This week’s March Madness exercise is Squat Jumps! I know you’re excited, but it’s time to work on those glutes! You can also modify this to squats without the jump to suit your ability.

I suggest starting in sets of 10 reps, take a break and go again! Here is a video demonstration of Squat Jumps. You can do several things with your hands, clasp them in front of you, put them behind your head and move them with your jumps. I’ve included a few pictures as well. This will get your heart rate up and work your legs, glutes and core.

This week brought many surprises to my door! I’ll share them with you and tell you to play close attention for giveaways to be announced! We want to keep you motivated!

This week’s giveaway is from Albion Fit. I just discovered them not that long ago. I decided to contact them to ask if they wanted to participate in March Madness and they sent me a top to try and one of our lucky readers will get the chance to win  it!

Don’t mind my picture taking skills…they are really lacking!

photo-2 This top is pinkish/purple, my pictures don’t do it justice. It’s long, VERY soft, has wonderful thumb holes in it. It’s thin, so not too warm for wearing after the gym. It was cold the morning I wore this so I had to throw a jacket on over it.

I’ve got it on again today, lounging around the house. It has a larger neckline and could be off the shoulder if you buy it bigger, cute with a tank top under it! It’s machine washable and dryer safe, although I hang dry everything around here so I haven’t tested it in the dryer.

It’s a comfy top and I think it will be my go-to top for the gym and Saturday’s for sure! I’m wearing a size small, as you can see it’s not real loose on me.

What actually drew me to Albion are the swim suits! I haven’t purchased one yet, I’m still shopping, be sure to check out all their clothing! If you want to follow them on Pinterest, you can find them here!

If you find something you can’t live without, we have a discount for you good until March 20, use myworldruns15 at checkout for $15 off a $50 purchase from Albion Fit.

      I ran in the ultimate capris, tank and t-shirt today. The capris did not stay up. I kept having to pull them back up to my waste. In my opinion, the elastic needed to be a bit stronger. The tank top rode up my belly the whole time as well. In order to get something that fits my smaller chest, I had to order a small. I think I needed the medium for the waist area though. Had I ordered the medium, though, then I’d have no support up top. The same for the pants. I ordered the medium for the hip/thigh area (which fit perfectly), but I really needed the small for a tighter fit around the waste. I did LOVE the grey long sleeve t-shirt though.

Tell me what you think!
