Resistance Bands will make her Dance

All you need is one resistance band, a timer (your phone), and some water. (Some good tunes wouldn’t hurt)  I use the Flex Timer app on my phone to set up the entire 30 minute session. You can design the interval time, rest time and even the number of rounds and rest time in between rounds. It’s awesome. This sequence is a great lower body work-out, that will blast calories as well. The key is to maintain intensity and push through that annoying lactic acid build up. Pain is

Lunge Matrix

The Lunge Matrix was originally developed by physical therapist Gary Gray, to develop strength and flexibility.  We are used to lunging forwards and backwards, but most people don’t utilize the curtsy and the lateral lunge. Using our bodies in every plane of motion is the key to injury prevention and optimum strength. And the curtsy lunge is one of my all time favorite booty builders. If you do all five lunges; reverse, lateral, curtsy, forward lunge and forward lunge with tw

Does HIIT burn more calories?

High Intensity Interval Training, is one of my all time favorite methods of exercise. Long steady state cardio gets boring for me, and slow resistant training does too. But I think incorporating all three into your week is the best case scenario for everyone. Here’s a quick example of a HIIT workout you can do at home: 30 seconds on 15 seconds rest — Repeat 4 times Squat jumps Push ups Crunches Alternating Curtsy lunges Plank Burpees Dips (on a chair or bench) #metabolism #he

Redefining your Core

Let’s just start with the basics. The foundation of your body is what we call the “core”.  People often assume this is just your abs. No siree. Your back muscles, abs and even your trunk, by doing plank variations to start. A healthy diet will give you the abs you’ve always wanted, but isometric and  dynamic core strengthening exercise will give you the ability to TRANSFORM your body. You can’t safely sculpt those arms without maintaining a stable midsection. So get to it my
