Superhero workout with Bodyarmor

What if I told you that just like me, you could too be a superhero?
I bet that you would look at me with a couple of different reactions… Think that I’m little crazy, then you would quietly list the qualities of a superhero in your head to see if you would fit any of them, finally, you would have this inner voice agree with me and tell you how awesome you are and that you could too be a superhero!
Superhero: A benevolent fictional character with superhuman powers, such as Superman.

Although I consider myself a "Kick Butt Superhero" now, I'm here to tell you that it wasn't always this way... Fitness has always been a huge part of my life. I grew up playing sports, dancing, and just stayed active most days. Life was great, then I went through hard times for a few years, and taking care of myself was the last thing on my list. At this point, I had 2 kiddos that loved me dearly that needed my attention. My fitness journey was put on hold. I would look in the mirror and just not like the person I was seeing.
Then on a warm summer day, while at the park with my kiddos, I looked at myself and realized that I wasn't really taking good care of myself. I felt like a was a zombie. Just going day by day, and not really living. That's when I decided to make the necessary changes. Starting with self-love. Falling in love with yourself is a hard task to achieve. You have to truly believe in it. You have to make the necessary changes to achieve it, but I did it! Next came my fitness journey.
I had to start from square one. There were a lot of times that I wanted to quit and just go back to being that "mom zombie" I was before. NOT this time! I would take about 30-45 minutes to myself for a workout session, and my inner Wonder Woman would just come out. It was an amazing feeling I tell you! Hydration was also very important. I wanted to make sure that I was taking drinks that were beneficial to me.
If you read part one of Daniel's and I love story, then you know that this Wonder Woman found her Superman! 

Finding someone that is there for you in every aspect of your life is great, but having someone that has the same exact passions is just... Just AMAZING!
During/After our workout, we like to stay hydrated. It's usually so hard to find a drink that we both enjoy and agree on. We count our Macro-nutrients, so finding drinks that aren't full of sugar is a plus!

When we heard about BODYARMOR new LYTE Super drink we had to give it a try! The LYTE drinks that are not only refreshing but have the best after taste. At 20/cal per serving. Naturally Sweetened. Contains coconut water, electrolytes, and vitamins. This is now a staple in our gym bag along with these items below:
  2. Peanut Butter Jar
  3. Gummy Fruit Snacks
  4. Protein
  5. Water 
Our workouts change weekly, but today I wanted to give you a glimpse at our Superhero Workout:
  • Warm-up run - 5 minutes
  • Squats - 4 Sets of 15 reps
  • Push-Ups  30 total
  • Partner Sit-Ups 15 (or you can do regular sit-ups on the floor 30).
  • Pull-Ups 10 (You can do it assisted by having your partner hold your legs)
You can add Dumbbells or whatever equipment you might have on hand to make this a bit more challenging. It all depends on your level of fitness. Watch the video below to get a small glimpse of what our workout looked like:
I hope that we have both inspired you to be your own version of a Superhero. Remember, not all superheroes wear capes!
