3 Surprising Moves That Shred Your Core

workouts Apr 18, 2018
 

Okay, sorry in advance for the view...!!! LOL. Here are THREE moves that SURPRISINGLY shred your core!!!


Move 1: Turkish Getups
Move 2: C-Sit Tuck To Bicep Curl
Move 3: Plank Twist And Reach
.
I've been loving TURKISH GETUPS! You can use a dumbbell or kettlebell and it's a TOTAL BODY movement that combines strength AND cardio. It's a STRENGTH move because you're having to hold up the weight while getting up, making sure your core is engaged and shoulder is stable. And it's a CARDIO move because the movement of simply getting up and down from the floor totally gets your heart rate up!
.
The Plank twist and reach is definitely a more advanced move. EVERYTHING is working here...obliques, inner thighs, core, shoulders, and arms!

Build An Instagram Booty With These 9 Moves Just Using A Band

fitness Apr 11, 2018
 

I've been incorporating bands into my workout regimen and it's a whole different kind of hard from dumbbells or machines. It fires up different parts of your glutes and wakes up muscles that you probably never knew existed!

Working on the booty is definitely a MUST for both guys and ladies, especially if you're sitting at a desk all day. To avoid a saggy booty and strengthen your glutes, try these booty firing exercises that just use a resistance loop!

This video is sped up, but the most important thing about these exercises is that you go SLOW, and take time to get that mind-to-muscle connection. Really feel the contraction in every single movement to really get the most out of it!

Move 1: Pushup with leg lift
Move 2: All 4's Leg Lift
Move 3: All 4's Up & Over
Move 4: All 4's Circles
Move 5: Squat Pulse Side To Side
Move 6: Squat w/ Abductor Leg Lift
Move 7: Tap it back
Move 8: Tap it out side
Move 9: Parallel Squat Pulses
.
Spend about 1 minute each exercise (or 30 seconds each side)...

Tips To Stay On Track While On Vacay

lifestyle Apr 05, 2018

If you’re planning on going on a vacation this spring or summer, it’s important to keep MOST healthy habits in check so you don’t let all of your hard work wash away. In the past, I used to party, drink, and eat anything I wanted, only to feel bloated, lethargic, and crummy.

 

I’ll be going to Cabo next week and while I’m going to be taking a break from work and “normal life,” it doesn’t mean that I’m going to take a break with my clean eating habits and fitness.

 

In this blog post, I want to share some of the strategies that I’m going to use while on vacay to keep me on track with my fitness goals and STILL have a blast.

 

Here’s what I’m going to cover:

  • What snacks to bring on an airplane (or any transportation)
  • What to choose on a restaurant menu
  • What are the healthiest cocktails to order
  • Tips to getting your workout in (with or without a gym)
  • Best foods to eat to keep bloat (and...

3 Biggest Tips On How To Lose Belly Fat

nutrition Mar 29, 2018

If you carry extra weight in your midsection, it might be because of this:

 

  • Simple fact of overeating: you’re consuming too many calories than you’re expending, so excess fat will carry in places like your belly, hips, and thighs
  • You’re eating too much processed food
  • You’re eating too much sugar (alternative sweeteners count too!)
  • You might be overstressed
  • You might not be sleeping enough
  • You might not be strength training enough

 

Let’s be real...there are really so many factors that can contribute to excess belly fat.

And because spring break is here, I want to give you some tips that might help flatten your belly so you can flaunt around in your spring dress or bikini!

 

First, let’s talk about the MYTHS of losing belly fat:

5 Hidden Reasons You’re Gaining Weight

nutrition Mar 15, 2018

There are things that we have “normalized” in our lives that we don’t think affect our weight or our health, but the reality is, those very things might be deterring you from reaching the body and health you want!


Here are 5 “hidden” reasons you might be gaining weight.

 

Excess Snacking

 

The bite of a donut in the break room. The mini chocolate stashed in your desk. The handful of chips from the break room. The free appetizers at your work party.


They all add up.


You might THINK you’re being healthy because you’ve stayed on track with your pre-planned eating plan, but what about those extra treats that you came across throughout your entire day?


You could be eating anywhere between 100-1000 MORE calories than you intended just through excess snacking.


My advice? Be diligent about staying on track with your intended meal plan. Perhaps use a food tracker or food journal to keep track of everything you ate. If you know you have a...
