Q: I'm too heavy on top to do squats without tipping over! Help?
Q: Erika, I finally figured this weight loss thing out. I'm eating clean, I'm working out, but my booty is going away!!! Nooooo!
Q: I'm rather unsure of how to go about some target areas like these sagging arms. How I can go about resolving those problem areas?
I don't deny or hide my love for booty exercises. I mean, I like having a nice little bump, but I'm not trying to have the saggy crease line that we often see being offered up as "sexy." Um, no thanks. That's not a fit booty. I'll pass! LOL Pay close attention to how he [...]
When I first started working out, I joined a gym. It was awesome - open 24hrs with security, awesome facilities, and two personal trainers (a married couple, in their late 50s - I know, I was mad too) who owned and operated it. The gentleman was the one who showed me around his facility. First [...]
Never mind the adorable girl showing off the exercise, but pay close attention to the instructions, here. I find that it took me a while to focus doing this exercise. You have to be careful that you're not just swinging your legs back and forth, that you're really working muscle groups with this one! I [...]
When you think of your obliques, think of the love handle area. Give it a little TLC, and I'm sure you'd be surprised by what comes up! :)
A big part of burning fat is cardiovascular exercise (also lovingly known as cardio.) The most toned muscles in the world will never be seen if there's a thick layer of fat covering them, you know? I deal with this right now - trying to get rid of the last bits of fat that I [...]
Another big thing for my figure is working on these thighs! One of the slight downfalls - among all the blessings - with a major weight loss is the need to tone to make sure that the skin comes back into place... and has a nice place to come home to, if you know what [...]
I'm always asked to spill my ab exercises - by one persistent visitor in particular *waving to Tracy* - so I figured, why not? This section of the site serves as a directory for me as much as it does for you. I'd like to go exercise shopping, too! LOL Here are the straight leg [...]
The most important part of squats is getting the form right - the movement (much like any exercise) is designed to cater specifically to a set of muscles, and the only way to ensure that you'll see results is if you make sure you're working the right muscles. That comes from doing the movement right! [...]
If you're looking to tone those sides up, give the side bend a shot: I do 4 sets of 30 about 3 times a week. They help me keep my curves in check even though I'm losing weight at the same time. :) Be happy, be healthy! :)
Did you know that you could get in a good 150 calorie burn doing Yoga in a nice warm room for a half hour? Why, yes! Yes, you can! Give the "Lotus Link" a shot!
If you don't have dumbbells, get innovative - grab a gallon jug, put a few cups of water in that bad boy and get to work! Where do you begin? I started with three sets of ten, which means I would do ten of these moves at a time, three different times with maybe 30 [...]
