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 [...]
You don't need the dumbbells or the ball to get it in, but they'll definitely help!
Need another exercise for those gallon jugs? Try the overhead dumbbbell press. I love the definition these helped me develop in my shoulders and chest as well as my arms - I'd never seen this on my body before, and I was excited to finally have it. Again, if you can only do a couple [...]
Give the Half Moon sequence a shot, and see how good you feel afterwards!
What I'm seeking to do is present you with a ton of different exercises that you can try in the comfort of your own home, maybe even your own bed! I know that my biggest thing was getting over how silly I felt I might look trying to workout at home. As a friend said, [...]
If you take a look at this exercise, you'll see just what parts of the arm it works. The tricep is, essentially, the "back" of the arm, for lack of a better phrase. If you do a few of these, it'll help define that area that often tends to look like little more than a [...]
For your upper arm strength and blood flow, the Sun-Moon sequence is a great option. Give it a shot and let me know how it works for you!
I'm a nut about my abs. I won't even lie! I love the feeling I have after a nice ab workout - I sit a little higher in my seat, I feel a little more secure in my movements, and I go a little harder in my other exercises, because I know that my midsection [...]
Cardio AND ab work at the same time? Total win!
Long live the good inner thigh exercises!
A big part of my ability to workout was stripping myself of excuses. I run a business. I don't have time to get dressed, throw my hair back, go to the gym, and spend an hour. That's like.. two hours worth of time I could be spending on my business! I'm a single parent.. I [...]
Seeking to strengthen your legs, this episode of Namaste Yoga demonstrates the Head to Knee sequence. Enjoy!
Check out the "Riding The Wind" sequence, and see if you can give it a shot!
I know the girl in the video is using maybe 4 times as much weight as I use right now - maybe when I "grow up," I'll be more into lifting heavy! - but a 5lb (or even a 3lb) weight will suffice for a beginner, and for someone who's simply trying to make use [...]
Long live the back and booty exercises!
An interesting thing about Yoga is that it forces you to focus on yourself - you cannot, in my opinion, successfully do the poses without fully focusing on yourself and what you are asking your body to do. Because of that, I've learned a new appreciation for myself... because that ability to spend time thinking [...]
I'm not even gonna lie - this is a sequence that I cannot get down pat. I'm six feet tall, one hundred jhglfdgjhsjhsgl pounds, and quite frankly... balancing all of that on my elbows simply does not feel like something I'm ever going to be able to accomplish. That doesn't mean that I give up [...]
