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 [...]
How did you come up with your weight training routine?
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 [...]
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 [...]
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!
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, [...]
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!
When I first started out with exercise, I would take my daughter to the gym in our apartment complex during the hours when most people were expected to be at work. However... during certain seasons, the gym becomes a 24-hour pick-up spot. No matter the hour, it was always full of people. It became less [...]
