I am trying this tonight. If I die it will be on your head! D
You kill me!! Really you do Good luck tonight and cannot wait to hear all about it!
Cool! What I like is that it’s different from the normal sit up – push up routine.
Do you usually get your cardio done before or after this routine? Are your cardio and strength training always one after the other or can you split them during the day (ex: cardio in the morning and strength training in the evening)?
Thanks for sharing this! Hopefully there will be more to come like this one!
I do my 20min of slow cardiovascular training immediately following my 20min metabolic strength training because this is the most optimal time frame in which to burn fat. However we have to remember I am training for a specific goal that requires a very specific protocol. General fitness training is really about moving daily. You do not have to work out twice per day and you don’t have to follow a specific protocol. Now if your goal is optimal fat loss then by all means follow the exact protocol that I am suggesting! Kick ASS Girl!!
Great exercises!! Will try them in about 7 weeks after baby pops out!!Right now I just do very basic training seeing as I cant move as much. Thanks for sharing, Carr!
Good stuff Steph for keeping at it while preggers!! As for post baby your body will need to take some time obviously to recover. The most efficient physical activity immediately after having a baby for me was always walking. Walk, walk and then walk some more!! It is great for you and the little one will enjoy it as well!
You are looking great girl keep it up. I am still following my diet, as of today I have lost another 3 pounds. Thanks fo sharing your tricks with us today I am going to try it for sure. Do you have any tricks for fat,flappy arms? I want to burn some fat from my arms with out getting to musculer. Thanks C2
Good for you Danielle!! Keep at it you are off to a great start. As for you arms it is important to remember that one can not “spot” reduce fat. When your body burns fat it does so throughout the whole body, there is no way to direct it specifically to one area. We all have areas that lean out before others and I can appreciate how that can be frustrating for most. So keep at it and you will notice overall fat loss. Now as for toning your arms, any upper body resistance exercise (with weights or body weight) will help in toning and firming up your arms.
Remember not to fall prey to the common “myths” of training and fat loss…there are so many out there, spot reduction being one of them.
Stay strong, stay sexy and keep at it!!
Cant wait to try these out… Maybe I will take before and after pics… How many times a week do you work out??? And are there any others you add into this set of 5??
Hi Christina! before and after shots are a great idea! I always take them regardless of what I am training for. They are a great benchmark to track progress and they are always nice to have once you reach you ultimate goal. I personally work out 6 days a week but again I am training for a very specific purpose. The human body is made to move and to not to do so is unnatural so having said that I suggest that physical activity becomes part of everyday life. It doesn’t always have to regimented, timed or grueling but a kick ass body and optimal health for years to come is based on us moving!! As for adding in other exercises the series always remains a set of 5 different exercises…those however I do change up in order to challenge my body.
Can’t wait to see those before and after pics in time!! Kick ASS!!
Doing this one tonight! I usually do an hour a day, but somedays I just can’t for whatever reason- looking forward to working this in.
I was looking through the site, maybe I missed it somewhere, but I’d love to know more about how you eat (non-competition & competition)…can you point me in the right direction?
Looking forward to knowing how the workout went! As for nutrition it is actually much more simple than most people believe it to be…lean proteins (chicken, fish, lean beef), healthy fats (olive oil, coconut oil, avocado) and veggies (greens…not starchy ones). Regular eating every 2 to 4 hours. That is a very basic run down…but remember this is pre-competition eating.
I love this workout! I prefer doing 30 minutes a day of quality over hours in the gym. It’s just not practical, especially for me! I work full-time and will be going to school two nights a week!
I think you should do more of these videos with some different exercises in your group of five. I’d love to be able to rotate your workouts in my weekly routine.
You are totally inspirational, too. Stumbled on your blog and think it’s awesome!
Thank you for the comment! Keep your eyes open many more videos to come!
As you know after 3 having 3 kids I’m finally gettting a grip on my health. I’ve been at the running room for 10 weeks now, doing 15-20km’s per week. Now I will add this workout into my schedule. You’re an inspiration !!!
Tish I have been following your progress on Facebook and have to say how amazing it is to see your dedication!! So glad to hear that you are taking care of yourself you and your kids are gonna be thankful for it! Keep me posted! xo
