Hey gang! Happy “Tone it up” Tuesday. Since I know you guys LOVE ab workouts, here’s a new one I designed that really focuses on the hip flexors and the lower abs. For best results, do this workout 3 times a week for 4 weeks. Let me know how it goes!
Hey hey ladies and gents! Hope you had a FABULOUS weekend! One of my best best friends from London came to visit me in Dallas this weekend. We had a great time dining, laying by the pool and catching up on life. This Friday we’ll be heading to Greece for our much awaiting summer vacation – eek!
As last-minute prep for our beach bodies, I designed this ab workout to focus primarily on the love handles (yes…that little layer of fat that sits so nicely on my side above my low-rise pants). The workout incorporates some techniques that I use in my PiYo Strength (Pilates/Yoga fusion classes). BTW, if you live in Dallas, you better come join me for PiYo on the deck every Saturday – it’s free and we have the best view in Dallas at the W Hotel 16th floor wet deck!
My “Eliminate the love handles” workout only takes 8 minutes – try it out and let me know what you think! Trust me, you will be sore tomorrow 🙂
My #fitfriend Alex (@alexandriawill), co-founder of Sporty Afros has been pushing me to start make posting free workouts on YouTube for my blog followers. So, last week after one of my Turbo Kickboxing classes (which is why my hair is drenched in sweat in the video) she stayed after and recorded my abs, legs and glutes circuit .
I usually do a series of body-weight exercises at the end of each my classes because my students love to feel nice and tight around their core and in their legs. Body weight exercises are generally high in repetitions and lower in weight which help give you long, lean muscle tone. They’re great to add to your fitness regimen because they require NO equipment and can be done at any time and any place.
Try the workout for yourself and let me know what you think. For best results, complete this workout 3 times per week along with 45 minutes of moderate-high intensity cardio (running, biking, elliptical, etc.).
If you like, I’ll record some more 10 minute circuits to help keep you on track in 2013. Enjoy 🙂
Lots of luv, Brit
