A little Sunday Sweatspiration

Pedestal 

So I wouldn’t consider myself someone who can do any kind of organized choreographed dancing or any sort, but I can bust a move at a wedding (after a sip or two of wine) with the best of them. People who have been to weddings with me are probably reading this and saying “no she can’t.” For all I know, I look like Elaine from Seinfeld, but hey dance like nobody’s watching, right? I do however like to workout to super fun music, something that drew me to teaching Spinning. One of my favorite things to hear after class is “I love your playlist!”

I’ve been getting more creative with working out at home since I’ve had Hannah so here is a fun music based routine I made up to the song “Hard” by Rihanna. I broke the song down into three parts, (something you can do with any song) the Verse, the Chorus, and a Bridge. These workouts aren’t meant to be a lesson in music but if you take a listen to the song, you’ll hear the three distinct parts. For each part they’ll be a different exercise.

For today’s song “Hard” you’ll do”

Verse – Burpees

Chorus – Air Squats/Squat Jumps

Verse – Burpees

Chorus - Air Squats/Squat Jumps

Bridge – Crunches

Chorus – Burpees

Give the workout a “go” and if you completely bomb it, don’t worry, you’ll probably still be sweaty. 

 

“Hard”

(feat. Young Jeezy)

INTRO/VERSE – Burpees 

Yeah, yeah, yeah (Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Yeah, yeah, yeah (Ah yeah, yeah, yeah)

Ah yeah, yeah, yeah (Ah yeah, yeah, yeah)

Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah, yeah

Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah yeah, yeah

They can say whatever

I’ma do whatever

No pain is forever

Yup, you know this 

Tougher than a lion

Ain’t no need in tryin’

I live where the sky ends

Yup, you know this

Never lyin’, truth teller

That Rihanna reign, just won’t let up

All black on, blacked out shades

Blacked out Maybach

I’ma rock this shit like fashion, as in

goin’ til they say stop

And my runway never looked so clear

But the hottest bitch in heels right here

No fear, and while you getting your cry on

I’m getting my fly on

Sincere, I see you aiming at my pedestal

I betta let ya’ know

CHOURS- AIR SQUATS/SQUAT JUMPS 

That I, I, I, I’m so hard

Ah yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m so hard

That I, I, I, I’m so hard

Ah yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m so hard

That I, I, I, I’m so hard

Ah yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m so hard

So hard, so hard, so hard, so hard

Ah yeah, yeah, yeah

That Rihanna reign just won’t let up

So hard, so hard, so hard, so hard

VERSE – BURPEES

All up on it, know you wanna clone it, ain’t like me

That chick to boney, ride this beat, beat, beat like a pony

Meet me at the top (top, top)

Gettin’ lonely

Who think they test me now

Run through your town

I shut it down

Brilliant, resilient

Fan mail from 27 millions

And I want it all

It’s gonna take more than that

Hope that ain’t all you got

Baby all you got

I need it all

The money, the fame, the cars, the clothes

I can’t just let you run up on me like that (all on me like that)

Yeah, I see you aiming at my pedastal

So I think I gotta let ya’ know

CHOURS – AIR SQUATS/ SQUAT JUMPS

That I, I, I, I’m so hard

Ah yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m so hard

That I, I, I, I’m so hard

Ah yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m so hard

So hard, so hard, so hard, so hard

BRIDGE – CRUNCHES (Warning, 1MIN LONG!)

Go hard or go home

Back to your residence

Soon the red dogs will give the block back to the presidents

I used to run my own block like Obama did

You ain’t gotta believe me, go ask my momma then

You couldn’t even come in my room

it smelled like a kilo

Looked like me and two of my boys playing casino

Trying to sell they peeping my bag they can’t afford it

Tell ‘em to give me back my swag

They tryin’ to clone me

See my Louis tux, Louis flag, Louis frames, Louis belt

What that make me

Louis mane? I’m in an all white party wearin’ all black

With my new black watch call it the heart attack

Cardiac arrest, cardiac a wrist

Yeah, they say they’re hard

They ain’t hard as this

Hard! The one word describes me

If I wasn’t doin’ this

You know where I be, too hard

Where dem girls talkin’ trash

Where dem girls talkin’ trash

Where they at, where they at, where they at?

Where dem bloggers girls at

Where dem bloggers girls at

Where they at, where they at, where they at?

Where your lighters at

Where your lighters at

Where they at, where they at, where they at?

So hard, so hard, so hard, so hard

CHOURS – AIR SQUATS/SQUAT JUMPS 

That I, I, I, I’m so hard

Ah yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m so hard

That I, I, I, I’m so hard

Ah yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m so hard

That I, I, I, I’m so hard

Ah yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m so hard

So hard, so hard, so hard, so hard

 

That I, I, I
