    WorkOut Wednesday – ‘Planking’

    plank
    Happy WorkOut Wednesday Everyone!

    Remember when ‘Planking’ was the ‘in’ thing all the cool kids were doing? Snapping pics of themselves ‘planking’ in odd locations and sharing it with their friends…well news flash, ‘Planking’ is still in, however not in the way it was made famous for!

    This WorkOut Wednesday is all about the power of the ‘plank’ position. Holding the plank position for 30-60 seconds in between spurts of cardio or after a run helps tighten your core, stabilize your muscles and of course help feel the burn in those abs!

    Want to do a spicier version of the traditional plank? To tackle your obliques, do a side plank like pictured below. If you can raise your arm up with weights even better, if not, stick to the basic!

    WorkOut Wednesday – Work B*tch

    britney_spears_work_bitch_art

    There’s always that one song that comes on your playlist inspiring outrageous singing, crazy dance moves or in my case, the motivation to go work out. Britney Spear’s single ‘Work B*tch’ does just that….take the lyrics “Want a hot body? You better work b*tch”…enough said!

    This segment of ‘WorkOut Wednesday‘ is all about ‘working’ it and what better way to work yourself out in the gym with some killer cardio. They key to not only loosing weight, but also toning up is to mix cardio in with intervals of weight training.

    For example, do 20 pushups followed by 30 seconds of jumping jacks, then back to pushups…so on and so forth. Mix up the cardio you do with jumping jacks, high knees, mountain climbers, squat jacks, burpees…whatever works best for you as long as you keep your heart rate up and the sweat dripping!

    Happy WorkOut Wednesday!

    WorkOut Wednesday – Inspiration ‘Snooki’

    173676735_620x350

    Now yes I have to admit I was far from a Snooki fan when she was getting trashed and making an ass of herself on the hit show, ‘Jersey Shore’, but recently she has me thinking that maybe she isn’t so bad after all.

    For this week’s edition of ‘WorkOut Wednesday‘ I wanted to talk about one of my new fitness inspirations, Snooki. She has come a long way from her ‘Jersey Shore’ days. She’s a new mom and is hitting the gym everyday to keep looking like one hot mama!

    What I love about Snooki is the fact that she shares her gym adventures with the world via her website and social media. She isn’t afraid to admit, ‘Hey to look like this takes work’. She isn’t hiding how she gets her killer body and she embraces an overall healthy lifestyle!

    She made an even bigger statement when she waltzed her way onto ‘Dancing With The Stars’ which is known to make even the healthiest of people exhausted and tired, but Snooki was sharing her rehearsal adventures with the world everyday and looked good while doing it!

    Here’s some of my fav fitness pics of Snooki as well as a link to her interview with Dr. Oz in which she shared the secret of how to get her killer post baby bod, (Hint: It’s something that has been said time after time!)

    Workout Wednesday – Burpees

    burpee
    Looking for a move that’ll totally kick your ass at the gym? Look no further!

    On this ‘Workout Wednesday’, I’d like to share with you one of the toughest moves in my fit body boot camp: The Burpee.

    Allow me to show a demonstration:

    download

    This move works your arms, legs and core. While there are many versions of the ‘Burpee’ one of the toughest I find is to turn the ‘Burpee’ into a Squat Thrust, and on your way down to put your legs behind you, instead jump down into a squat then kick your legs out behind you.

    Do 15-20 of these for 3 reps and you will be sore the next day without a doubt!
