I stumbled upon this WONDERFUL & HELPFUL website. It breaks down moves targeted towards certain body parts. For example, if you need to work on your ankles, there is a page of exercises for that. If you need to work on your hip flexors, there is a page for that as well.

Use your towel this week for sweat, not giving up.
You KNOW I do. The Team Beachbody Blog has really helped inspire me to snack healthy. Since I am on the go 90% of the day, it is important to keep my nutrition in check. It is SO easy to grab a bag of chips, a candy bar, or a cookie but if you disciple yourself and prep your food and snacks for the week, you won’t have a problem reaching for a healthy and tasty snack. 🙂

Insanity Plyometric Circuit
I have been doing Insanity Max 30 from Shaun T, so I figured you could use some plyo and Shaun T inspiration in your life.
Check out the video below for the full workout. It’s only 40 minutes, you GOT this.
1 scoop shakeology
1 cup (or 1/2 cup) almond milk (vanilla almond milk is the bomb too)
1 cup regular coffee (mine is a regular blend from Trader Joes)
5-7 ice cubes
Brew coffee and set aside. Put almond milk, shakeology, ice cubes, and coffee into blender. Mix until smooth. Enjoy 🙂
